Way Fruit Farm
Hello market-goers! We are Brooks & Sharon Way and their daughter and son-in-law, Megan & Jason Coopey, the current co-owners of Way Fruit Farm. We'd like to take a minute to tell you about our family owned and operated, local orchard and the products we offer you each week at the market.
Six generations of the Way family have lived on and worked the Way Fruit Farm. In 1826, Robert and Martha Way purchased the land that has become the Way Fruit Farm. The first apple trees for commercial production of apples were planted in 1872. When Robert A. Way married Lucretia Fisher, her father had a thriving orchard and nursery at the time. He and his wife gave the newlywed couple 1,000 apple trees for a wedding gift. Thus, Way Fruit Farm was born! The farm has continued to expand and now produces and sells apples, peaches, plums, pears, sweet corn, pumpkins, strawberries, cherries, blueberries and apricots. Our farm store and cold storage facility, originally built in 1958, have been remodeled and expanded in 2009, and now boasts a bakery and cafe as well as plenty of additional retail space for great local foods.
Every week at the Boalsburg Farmers Market, we offer all of the above listed fruits and vegetables in season, as well as our own apple butter, applesauce, dried apples and apple dumplings. (Do you notice a fruity theme here?) We hope to serve you and your family soon at the market or at our farm store!
