Ohio Pies is a licensed home bakery offering pies made from scratch with locally sourced and organic ingredients.
WHY PIE? My passion for making the highest quality pies began in 2006 when I was living abroad, missing my grandparents’ berry pies. Wild blackberries and black raspberries grew in their backyard, and we would eat the pie still warm with milk. Mass produced pie can never compare to these homemade memories. So often pies are overly sweet with inedible crusts. I am driven by the desire to make people happy with pies that are the best they can possibly be, with flaky, buttery crusts and fillings that are bursting with flavor.
WHY LOCAL? I worked on small organic farms for ten years and came away understanding that food tastes better when it’s fresh and local. In addition to preferring the taste of locally produced goods, I am a strong believer in supporting our local food 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. I source as many ingredients as possible locally and even grow some of the produce myself. When you buy Ohio Pies, you are also supporting local farmers who work so 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. I am continuing to look for better packaging solutions and eliminate all plastic products to create the smallest environmental footprint possible with my business.
