When it comes to dessert, we never discriminate. Cookies, muffins, ice cream, you name it and we'll be there to sample it all. Yet if we're talking about sweets we want to eat year-round, there's one confection that never fails to steal our hearts (and our stomachs). Whether it's pumpkin on Thanksgiving, blueberry in the summer, or chocolate cream all year long, pie is always the perfect way to end the day (or start the morning, because apple pie is a completely acceptable breakfast option). In the Hudson Valley, we're blessed with an abundance of top-notch spots to score our favorite 3.14159...oh, you know what we mean.

Golden Harvest Farms  

This pick-your-own farm is known for harvesting some of the best apples in the Hudson Valley, but it is also home to a wonderful bakery. John Henry, the baking manager, has been cranking out pies, donuts, and other whimsical treats for over 25 years. The classics are an easy go-to, but the shop also offers apple nut caramel, peach praline, and strawberry rhubarb.

A Hudson Valley favorite at this farm's bakery is the apple raspberry pie. The blend of the two fruits makes for a sweet, yet tart bite of pie goodness. The shop also offers classics like cherry and blueberry pie year-round, along with coconut custard and pumpkin pie in late September. All pies are made fresh daily.

Noble Pies

For local flavor and that sweet nostalgic taste of a baked treat, look no further than Noble Pies. At Noble, fresh and authentic are essential. With roots as a humble farm stand, the retail bakery remembers its history and continues to bake like home. There’s a wide selection of sweet pies like the classic French Apple or Chocolate Pecan, but also a surprising array of savory pies like Chicken Pot Pie, or the less common Cubano or Buffalo Chicken. Noble is a must-eat spot in Orange County.

Pie Lady & Son

The country atmosphere of this shop is accompanied by the smell of fresh baked pies from the moment you enter. The shop offers customers whole pies and pies by the slice. If you really want to go all out, ask for a scoop of Jane’s Ice Cream to top it off. In addition to fresh pies, frozen pies like quiche and key lime pie are available for purchase as well.

The Shops at Jones Farm

Everything in this shop is made from scratch, from the crust to the filling. Try a classic slice like apple or blueberry pie or venture out and taste the chocolate chip pecan pie. Yes, you heard that right. The chocolate chip cookie crust is filled with pecan pie goodness and served hot with a heaping scoop of ice cream.
