The Pie Guy has been making pies by hand in New England since 2001. We're family-operated and we taste what we make every day. We believe that good baking is an art, not an industrial process ... our products are handmade by good people with a passion for good food. We believe in using only natural ingredients, labeled honestly and sourced locally wherever possible.
Premium, home-style pies
From the beginning, the idea behind The Pie Guy has been to provide the kind of fresh, simple product you'd make yourself at home, delivered to the bakery section of neighborhood food retailers. We started off making pies by hand with simple, all-natural ingredients ... and after 10 years we're still making pies by hand, with simple all-natural ingredients.
Here in our backyard, The Pie Guy has been named "Best of New Hampshire" by New Hampshire magazine for the past eight years. The word is out, and today you can find our products in the bakery section of food retailers across New England and an increasingly wide area of the greater east coast.
You can find a lot of "pies" on the market these days, but you will not find one made with better ingredients.
We are committed to using totally natural, home-style ingredients ... the kind simple ingredients you might use at home ... like fresh fruit, pure cane sugar, unbleached flour and pure vanilla. We source locally where we can ... our apples come from a nearby New Hampshire farm, our blueberries come from Maine and our heavy cream comes from a nearby dairy. We never use pie filling, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, fillers, artificial flavorings, colorings, preservatives or the unpronounceable industrial stuff you'll find on some "pie" labels.
We're not scientists but we think that our natural ingredients probably make for a healthier, more wholesome product. What we know for certain is that our natural ingredients make for a better-tasting product ... something you'll enjoy eating yourself and feel good about serving to family and friends.
Compare ingredient labels, compare taste.
We make our products by hand, in small batches. If they look a little irregular it's because they're made by people, not machines. We don't use factory-scale pie machines or tunnel ovens ... we hand-mix fruit with sugar and spices, pack the fruit into crusts one-by-one and apply a topping or top crust by hand. Our cream pies taste the way they do because they're made the old-fashioned way, thickened with milk and egg yolks in a hot kettle, not with modified food starch in a cold industrial process.
Our new look
After ten years of good service we've recently retired our old logo in favor of a new logo and an updated look for our product packaging. But nothing on the inside has changed. Local New England artist Erick Ingraham shares our values and has handcrafted the new look for us. We hope you like it ... let us know what you think.
