Local News

CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ)Way Fruit Farm kicked off their first annual “Art in the Orchard!”

The event will be held from July 8-10, and there’s something in store for the entire family. Kids won’t be able to resist petting fluffy bunnies in the bunny pen, and right next door is food truck city, ensured to fulfill any craving and make your mouth water!

Folks can also jam out to some live music with three different bands taking the stage throughout the day. Genres range from rock and roll and country, to bluegrass and jazz. According to ‘The Rockin’ Rockers,’ “dancing is encouraged.” With the band promising that whatever dance moves happen on the farm, stay at the farm!

Last but not least, folks can take a stroll the orchard where local artists will be presenting and selling their work from a wide variety of mediums including photography, jewelry, paint, textiles, pottery and more.

Co-owner of the farm Jason Coopey says they decided to put on the event after noticing so many other staple ones were being cancelled this year.

“We felt that the artists, the food trucks, they just haven’t had a lot of venues to go to in a year and a half now and we started feeling that we just needed to do something for them. We have lots of ground here, lots of parking, lots of room to spread out…and we just thought that we could do something to provide them a way to do something normal, and for us to do something normal,” said Coopey.

According to the Way Fruit Farm this is a summer event that you don’t want to miss!
