It's almost November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so naturally your thoughts go to pie, right? Well, my brother and I spent some quality time this afternoon at the place where pies come from. Or, more specifically, where the sweet potatoes, pumpkins and butternut squash for our Thanksgiving Pies at Mary's Cakes will come from.
And that would be right here <--- at Snow's Bend Farm, not 20 minutes from the bakery if you drive really fast (which of course you cannot do because half the distance to the farm is on a dirt road, making this a two-car-wash trip).
David Snow and Margaret Ann Toohey (the farmers) hosted a harvest celebration today. We met a lot of really nice people, enjoyed some good slow food, and were able to say we know EXACTLY where it came from. Here are the highlights...
We'll be getting our delivery of pie-bound vegetables soon, and they'll be available for your Thanksgiving table by simply calling the bakery and placing an order.
