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.

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 Red Free is a sweet, juicy apple, perfect for those that don't like the early, tart apples.
