News from Way Fruit Farm: Fresh, Local Grab & Go Family Dinners

From Way Fruit Farm in Port Matilda:

Strawberry picking is continuing this week! The rain and warm weather has ripened even more strawberries over the weekend and they’re ripe for the picking right now. Our hours for strawberry picking are: Mon., Wed. & Fri 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Tues., Thurs. & Sat. 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Children are welcome- it’s fun for the whole family to try picking together and remember to bring your own buckets, bowls or pails to pick into. See you in the field!

Local vegetables are abundant right now including: zucchini, salad greens, green onions, greenhouse tomatoes, & more! Our Golden Delicious apples and Fresh-pressed apple cider are still available, but in limited quantities; so get them while you can! Our cherry crop has just begun with the sweet, eating cherries. You will find them for sale by the pint at our farm store and at the farmer’s market we attend, but they are always in limited supply, so come early and savor them! We also have begun to pick an early variety of tart cherries, which you can buy by the quart. However, it’s still too early for the U-Pick cherries. Stay tuned for more details on U-Pick soon!

Our porch is bursting with lots of beautiful, local hanging baskets, sitting planters and 4 or 6-packs of flowers. We hope you’ll come out and choose a few to decorate your porch with for summer. We think you’ll find our prices competitive and the quality superior to a lot of the local “box stores.”

Last, but certainly not least, we are excited to share some Way Cafe menu changes with you. You talked and we listened. Starting today, we are introducing our new menu options featuring lots of your suggestions and favorites like: more lunch & dinner entree choices daily; more family-size portions for dinner & ease of dinner purchase (no call ahead necessary anymore!)- you just grab-n-go & then heat at home.

If you plan to eat in, for lunch or dinner, check out our new menu online at  or come to the cafe today.

We also have another option called “Grab-n-Go” entree & side dishes. They will be located in our deli & cooler cases; fully cooked, chilled & ready for you to heat-and-serve at home, at your convenience. All of the entrees are still made from scratch from fresh, local ingredients in our kitchen and will be based on availability daily. Choose from:

  • Lasagna- meat or vegetarian
  • Homemade meatloaf
  • Quiche- various seasonal varieties weekly
  • Stromboli- assorted fillings
  • Shredded, Local Beef BBQ
  • Pierogies with butter & onions
  • Macaroni & potato salad or coleslaw

Stop in tonight and let us help you with dinner!
