Our vision is to optimize the long-term value of our landholdings and agricultural operations by integrating cranberry farming and community development, thereby creating unique and distinctive real estate destinations.
Five generations ago, 22-year-old Abel D. Makepeace founded a company whose focus was agricultural, but whose vision was much broader. Mr. Makepeace saw opportunities everywhere to build his company and to create new jobs for local residents. He developed new ways to grow cranberries, and to pack, ship and store them. When his company needed lumber, he built a sawmill.
That entrepreneurial vision still guides the Makepeace Company today. The cranberry bogs represent a unique opportunity to build distinctive neighborhoods especially for those who value our environment and our heritage. The sand and gravel operation emerges from bog construction and renovation. Real estate development supports ongoing agricultural operations through environmentally responsible design features.
Our company’s future is dependent upon responsible use of environmental resources. We are inspired by nature, and this philosophy is reflected in all our businesses.
