Grab a slice of the season

By Taylor on November 15, 2013 in Blog

Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away, and for many of you that could mean indulging in a slice of pumpkin, apple, pecan or whatever delicious pie your heart desires.

If you're a fan of buying fresh and local, you can continue the trend with the ingredients that go into your dessert. “The Modern Farmer Pie Chart,” a recent food feature from Modern Farmer, suggests that pumpkin pie is not only a tradition but also a seasonally appropriate pie!

If you or a pie-baking friend is ready to trade canned pie fillings for a fresh, local substitute, Buy Fresh, Buy Local in Iowa can help you find a local producer.
