Mark your calendars folks for the weekend of February 16 & 17 for our first ever Cider & Pie Fest! We are having a cider tap takeover all weekend and a pie baking contest on Sunday to raise money for a local charity, Solve Maternity Homes.
The pie competition is Sunday 2-5pm. You can buy a small slice of pie for $1 and vote for your favorite pie by putting as much money at you’d like in the jar for that pie. The pie with the most money donated wins! We’ll have a grand prize winner and a runner up with special prizes. All pie proceeds go to Solve Maternity Homes. Wanna prove that your pies bring all of the boys to the yard? Scroll down for details on how to get involved and support this awesome local non-profit.
This will be a two day event (because why not?) with lots of sweets just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Cider Babes Rule!
Our Cider Babes (Cathy and Kira) are taking over the taps for the weekend! We’ll have the following ciders on tap and hopefully they will last throughout the weekend.
We’ll be offering special tickets at the door for $15 which includes any 2 ciders and 3 tickets for 3 slices of pie.
We’ll be donating 10% of our cider sales for the weekend to Solve Maternity Homes, so drink up!

Pie Baking Competition
Sunday at 2-5pm we’ll be having a pie baking competition and we want you to be involved! Bring in your best pies (2 of the same type of pie) or as many as you’d like? Do you make a mean apple and an awesome pumpkin? Bring in two of each by 1pm Sunday. The more pies you bring the happier it will make everyone. Please bring your pies in a disposable tin or be prepared to baby-sit your dishware. We cannot be responsible for the possible loss of grandma’s favorite baking dish.
People will be voting for the best pies with their $$. The pie with the most money at 5pm wins! We’ll also have a runner up and both will receive an awesome prize.
Solve Maternity Homes
Proceeds for the weekend will support a local non-profit. Solve Maternity Homes is a privately funded, non-profit organization with a group of residential maternity homes serving the needs of at-risk pregnant women of all ages and their babies. They offer housing and a structured program (free of charge) for the duration of their pregnancy and a pre-determined time post birth. In their 40 years, over 1,300 women have lived at SOLVE. They served 68 women and their babies last year.
