When the world celebrates International Pi (3.14) Day, the devotees of Pie Town New Mexico are ready for the start of another season. Where is Pie Town? You will discover and enjoy it on Highway 60, just 86 miles West of Socorro New Mexico. On the way, you will get another treat. You pass the Very Large Array. That’s another story for another time.
Coming by way of Socorro you will see the Stop sign.
Next you’ll learn you have arrived in Pie Town. It’s more a village than a town with less than 200 people living here.
You definitely want to stop at the Pie-O-Neer!
What would Pie Town be without a place to get yourself some pie?
You never know what may be available. If you hang around long enough, pies continue to come out of the oven throughout the day. If you’re so inclined, you can call ahead and request a pie to go. All the pies are made with fresh or frozen fruit, no preservatives and little sugar. See, they are good for you.
There’s a cozy cafe to enjoy your selection.
A bowl of green chile stew is a delicious entree before dessert.
Since we have been there, “The Pie Lady of Pie Town” has been completed and has won many awards for shorts and documentaries.
Let me introduce you to Kathy Knapp, she puts the pies in Pie Town.
Let’s conclude with another Kathy. She eats the pies in pie town. You don’t need to wait for Pi Day to celebrate pie. Enjoy a piece today. Next time you are in New Mexico, stop by Pie Town. It’s worth the trip and your tummy will say thank you.
Please tell me your favorite pie in the comments below. For me, I love just about anything with berries.
