A pie bakery focused on using the finest seasonal ingredients from New York's Hudson Valley.

Tell us about your business.

Our pies are handmade with the finest ingredients available, all sourced from New York’s Hudson Valley, where I was raised. The belief that these ingredients should be allowed to speak for themselves is the driving force behind our creations, and we think you’ll taste the difference. Our commitment to using the highest quality, natural ingredients and bringing them to you at peak freshness is what sets us apart.

What makes your business stand out?

My grandparents were fruit farmers in Columbia County, NY, and my grandmother Emily made a pie every single day for the family. She taught me not only the technique of pie-making, but also the guiding principles of the craft: respect the ingredients, work gently but with certainty, and take time to savor the result.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Believe in yourself. If you don't have confidence in your own idea, you can't expect anyone else to.
