We exceeded our goal thanks to our awesome backers! Speechless. Now we just have until Aug 2 to tell the world who we are and need your help to do that.

Reaching our goal we now are able to fulfill all the rewards, purchase 2 new freezers, one new double oven,  750 of our reusable pie tins, packaging for some of the new items we'll be offering, develop the website and set up our commitment with the online shipper and gladly pay Kickstarter's fees. 

Now we’re happy to announce our stretch goals! 

$15,500  New Pie Boxes, More Baking Materials and Marketing

This will enable us to order our next round of Pie Boxes (these cost $3k!) as it is going to require a new design press.We are also working on our new logo (big announcement before the end of the campaign) We'll also be using this for marketing and towards more of the essentials we'll need to start scaling up our baking production. 

Our very talented nephew Terrance designed this amazing logo.

    I've made of thousands of pies since I landed in Vermont in 1975. With lots of testing and some old fashioned Yankee ingenuity, we developed the process to successfully ship our fresh delicious pies everywhere. Now it's time to bring our prize winning Pies to the People with an online pie shop distribution. Before we can do that, we need to upgrade our equipment, develop our website and get our inventory and marketing in place. We need to get ready for ready and we need your help to make it all happen.

  Off the beaten track, our property, the Red Fox Inn, Restaurant and Pub first opened its doors in 1960 and turns 60 years old next year. It's a  well loved institution. Our family has kept the Fox rockin' for the last 35 years. The Fox has provided many a meal, quenched many a thirst and lodged many a tired traveler. We've provided many a musician for many a song, many a dance and many a fireside chat with many a kindred soul. Many of life's most meaningful gatherings happen here. The Fox has had the distinction of aging gracefully, keeping its classic charm, like an old reliable friend you can count on to be there for you. We want to make sure that tradition continues for the generations to come.

Our pies have gained a lot of recognition over the years. We were voted Best Apple Pie in Vermont by Yankee Magazine and were written up in the Boston Herald, USA Today and lots of other publications. We've been on local and national food programs. We are very proud that we were included at 2 Presidential Inaugurations. Apple Pie, the most Patriotic dessert in the land was surely a perfect fit. That was an awesome historic experience. 

Proud of our Pies being part of Presidential History
