Our bakers have come up with the perfect, single serving pie! These adorable little pies are loaded with our apples and have a bit of a thicker crust. Many people's favorite part of the pie is the crust, making our mini pies ideal. They also require no cutting and can be enjoyed almost anywhere. You can enjoy a pie at the summit after your hike, after apple picking at the orchard, and even on the go. Flavors will change weekly and seasonally. Our standard pies are still available for those who wish to share! Call ahead for flavors and availability.
Fresh from the fields this week we have an abundance of summer produce. The first of the tomatoes are in from the greenhouse along with cucumbers and green peppers. We have an ample supply of fresh kohlrabi, carrots, summer squash, cabbage, turnips and more. Availability changes daily, sometimes hourly, if you are coming in for something specific please call ahead.
Early-season apples are in! We have a great selection including Lodi, Orange Sweet, Pristine, Jersey Mac, William's Pride, Red Free, and Vista Belle. The Orange Sweet and Red Free apples were just harvested this week. The Orange Sweet is a buttery, yellow heirloom apple with a sweet, fine-grained flesh and good crunch. The Red Free is a sweet, juicy apple, perfect for those that don't like the early, tart apples.
Join us for our Harvest Festival September 5th through September 7th to kick off the start of Pick-Your-Own Apples!

Maine Apple Sunday is September 13, 2015! Join us in celebration of Maine's apple harvest and heritage. From 10am-2pm come up to meet our Orchardist, Scott Miller. Learn about and taste different apple varieties grown here at Pietree, enjoy free apple crisp, go apple picking and take a shot at naming the ME8256 apple! The ME8256 is an apple developed by the University of Maine in the 50's and it needs a name! We will be taking suggestions from the public from 10am-2pm. All suggestions will be reviewed by our panel of esteemed pomologists and the new name will be chosen and revealed by late November 2015! The winner will receive a prize! This is a rare opportunity for the public to participate in naming an apple, an apple that was developed in and for the state of Maine.
