Harvest on Henry 2015 Bake Sale and Pie Contest

The Bake Sale

Bring your family’s tried-and-true, all-time favorite pie to Harvest on Henry this year! This fundraiser is our favorite and most delicious part of the event. Pies will be sold at the festival alongside the students' homemade ice cream, and proceeds support the farm.

It's free to register, but please RSVP in advance!

The Pie Contest

Do you know your pie is the best, and want everyone else to know it, too? Our panel of local celebrity judges will select a winner in two categories: Fruit (apple, cherry, etc.) and Other (pecan, custard, chocolate, etc.).

For one pie, the entrance fee is $5. To enter both categories, or two varieties in one category, the fee is $8. Saul students may enter for FREE! Payment is required on or before the day of the event. You can pay by credit card if you register online, or drop off cash or checks (made out to Weavers Way Farms) at the farm from 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesday or Friday in an envelope marked "Pie Contest." You can also pay when you drop off your pie Oct. 16 or 17 (see below).

The Pie Contest is open to all. Please register here. Saul students compete for free and can register here.


The Pie Contest will be judged by three local celebrity foodies: Scott Piergrossi, a judge for the American Pie Council's National Pie Championships; Meg Hagele, owner of High Point Cafe; and Alex Fries, chef at Earth - Bread + Brewery.

The awards ceremony begins at 3 p.m.
