My friend Phoebe Lawless of Scratch Baking, has started a “community supported pie” program that is quite similar to the myriad community supported agriculture programs across the country. Under Phoebe’s plan, you choose one large or three small pies per week, savory or sweet. The flavors will change each month. The cost of the program is $60 a month, which is a pretty damn good deal. You’ll be able to pick up the pies in either Durham or Raleigh.
If you’ve ever had Phoebe’s pies, you know what a treat this is. Plus, you’ll be supporting a local artisanal baker who sources most of her ingredients from local farmers.
I’m not going to list Phoebe’s email address here, as it might cause her to be flooded with spam, but just look at the top right of her website, www.piefantasy.com/ and drop her an email saying you’d like to be a member of Community Supported Pie!
