Ohio Pies is a licensed home bakery offering pies made from scratch with locally sourced
WHY PIE? My passion for making the highest quality pies began in 2006, while I was living abroad and missing my grandparents’ berry pies. Wild blackberries and black raspberries grew in their backyard, and we would eat the pie warm from the oven with ice cold milk poured over top. Mass produced pies are often overly sweet with inedible crusts, and can never compare to these homemade memories. I am driven by the desire to make people happy with pies that are the best they can possibly be. I strive for flaky, buttery crusts and fillings that are bursting with flavor.
WHY LOCAL? Before starting Ohio Pies, I worked on small organic farms for ten years. I learned firsthand that produce tastes better when it’s freshly picked. In addition to preferring the taste of locally produced goods, I am a strong believer in supporting our local economy. The corporate food system harms the environment, abuses animals, strips food of it's nutrition, and exploits workers. Buying local means I know my farmers and can see how they raise their animals or grow their produce. When you buy Ohio Pies, you are also supporting local farmers and producers who work hard to put quality food on our tables.
WHY ORGANIC? When food is certified organic it means it was grown without the use of toxic chemicals. I choose organic whenever possible because I do not want harmful chemical residue in my pies. Equally as important, I want to support farmers who do not expose their workers to toxic chemicals, and who are using practices that don’t endanger the environment. Chemicals from farms can enter our waterways and mess with natural ecosystems. I buy from local farmers who use organic practices or who spray as little as possible, and who let their animals roam free. When I can’t source ingredients locally, I buy organic and fair trade from responsible companies.
PACKAGING. Most of my packaging is biodegradable, and some is even locally produced! This means over time it will decompose instead of living indefinitely in the environment. I am continuing to learn and adapt to create the smallest environmental footprint possible with my business. I practice recycling and composting at my home bakery.
