We were excited to bring you the 13th Annual Apple Pie Contest! The last 12 years have been filled with excitement and lots of different recipes with very different tastes! Whether it’s your grandma’s recipe that’s been in the family for centuries or one you created yourself, we loved trying your pie.

We have people asking months in advance to be a judge of the Apple Pie Contest. There is so much thrill to watch as the judges evaluate each pie and try each piece. After the event is over, they are signing up to get that recipe!Everyone loves a great apple pie.
