Week 9 – Spiced Pear and Apple

This week marks the final week of the pie share.  It’s hard to believe that eighteen weeks and nine pies have passed so quickly!  We hope you have enjoyed experiencing the changing of the seasons through pie – from June’s sweet strawberries to mid-summer’s stone fruits to the tastes of fall in this week’s pie: Spiced Pear and Apple. This week’s fruit – Bosc pears and a mix of McIntosh, Macoun, and Cortland apples – once again comes to us from The Big Apple in Wrentham.

This season we have had so many great farm partners at Brookwood, Powisset, and beyond, and we owe a great deal of gratitude to all of the hardworking farmers. We thank them, and of course each of you, for taking a chance on a new pie business! To help us gather feedback on your experiences, we have put together a very brief online survey that should only take about 2 minutes to complete. Your anonymous responses are much appreciated! Please click here to access the survey.

While this marks the end of the summer pie share, it doesn’t mean the end of Bushel + Crumb’s pie season! There are holidays to celebrate and, as winter sets in, what food could be more comforting and perfect for sharing with family than a warm, delicious pie? For Thanksgiving, we’re excited about offering seasonal flavors that are both classic (pumpkin and apple) and a little more adventurous, including Cazuela Pie (sweet potato and coconut), Salted Honey Walnut, and Savory Squash and Goat Cheese.

Thanksgiving pies will be available for pick-up on Tuesday, November 26th at Brookwood from 1-6 pm and at Powisset from 3-6 pm. Pies will be baked fresh that morning and will taste delicious on Thanksgiving day – we’ll provide warming instructions for those who like their pies fresh out of the oven.  Our Thanksgiving pie order form can be downloaded by clicking here or check out our blog next week for online ordering. And we’ll be sure to keep you posted about more special order pie opportunities throughout the fall, winter, and spring!

It has been a great joy for us to share our love of pie and of local farms with you this season. We’re always interested in hearing from you – to inquire about pies for special events, to share a great recipe, for feedback on the summer share or a particular pie, or to request a special variety of pie.

Enjoy this final pie of the summer pie share and we hope to see you at farm next season, if not sooner!
