Fresh Wisconsin Cranberries Featured in Grey Rock’s Farm To Table Dish
04 Oct, 2016
Amanda Fendryk, Grey Rock’s lead chef is always scouring the state to bring the freshest options she can, while maintaining the idea that local is best. Not only because of the food itself, but because giving back to the community is incredibly important.
This month, Amanda has chosen The Wetherby Cranberry Company located in Warrens, Wisconsin. The marsh is family owned and operated by Jim and Nodji Van Wychen, along with their son Henry, and son-in-law, Michael Gnewikow.
Founded in 1903, they began packing the fresh cranberries in 1905. Where a great number of bogs in Wisconsin are grown for the production of juice, Wetherby has made fresh fruit its foundation. In 1973, Warrens County had their first Warrens Annual Cranberry Festival and since then, Wetherby has been an incredible presence in the cranberry market. Whether you want fresh cranberries, homemade wine, or dried cranberries, their products can be purchased at their store, or shipped throughout the United States.
You can try Wetherby Cranberry Company’s fresh cranberries in this month’s Farm to Table special. Savor seared duck breast with an orange, amaretto and cranberry relish, served with creamy garlic mashed potatoes. This dish will be available all through the month of October.
Grey Rock is open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m. The piano bar lounge opens at 4:30 p.m. and features live entertainment every Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. Make your reservations online or call 800.444.2812.
