Our Pie Story
I moved to the lovely state of Vermont from the city in 1975. That fall when the apples in the trees out back got ripe I made my first pie for a friend’s birthday. Ma Bean’s Vermont Pie Co was born. It's been forty six years since and now Ma Bean's pies are affectionately known as Nannypies thanks to seven grandchildren! I’ve made thousands of pies since then. I believe I could be a contender in the Guinness Book of World Records for the number of apples peeled by hand!
In 1984 my husband Tom and I bought the infamous Red Fox Inn in southern Vermont, where early on my pie was voted ‘Best Apple Pie in Vermont’ by Yankee Magazine. We also were invited to attend two U.S. Presidential Inaugurations to serve the most patriotic dessert in the land! The simple honest Vermont ingredients starting with juicy Macintosh apples, a flaky crust made from VT King Arthur Flour and a VT Cabot butter crumb top put this pie in a class all its own. Thanks to some old fashioned Yankee ingenuity and the sophisticated shipping of today’s market, now you too can enjoy this award winning pie at home. Serve it warm with your favorite Vermont ice cream, or cheddar, you’re sure to be the hit of any gathering!
Remember, if you want the best,
it’s got to be fresh.
