Bake a Pie! Enter a pie in the pie contest at the Slow Food Seacoast Down on the Farm event on July 1st. All attendees are invited to offer a pie to compete for one of three titles — win fabulous prizes and bragging rights!
From strawberry rhubarb to lemon chess, anything goes — but since we’ll be on a pick-your-own berry farm, we’re hoping for at least some summer fruit pies made with luscious local berries.
We hope to spearhead a Seacoast Pie Revival this summer at our pie table at Down on the Farm, so why not try a pie? Anything goes. Make some pastry. Make some filling. Put them together. Bake them. Mm-mm! Keep the American pie tradition alive!
Best Traditional Pie
Best Original Pie
Judging will take in both taste (75%) and appearance (25%)
To enter: Bring pie in a pie pan with a label on the bottom (not visible from above). Be prepared to fill out an entry form listing your pie’s title and all ingredients (no secret ingredients due to allergy risks, please). Each pie will be issued a number and voting will be blind. Pie will be consumed in voting — judges will share 1/3 of the pie, and the remaining 2/3 will be cut into small bites for People’s Choice voting.
