  • Really cute gift shop with pies and ice cream! You must try both!! They have a nice grassy sitting area outside. Such a great place to go for an afternoon refresher. Apparent it’s not open all year but we were there in June and it was open! They do run out of pies before the end of the day so make sure to go by sooner =]
  • This small little estate is just beyond the visitor center at Capitol Reef national Park. I had heard about it on a podcast so I decided to stop in and check it out. The podcasters raved about the pie so that was my original goal. But once you get inside there's plenty of other items to take home. I ended up taking home some gala, apple preserves and a basil and tomato soup in addition to four different flavored pies. I definitely recommend stopping in if you're in the area and at least trying one of the pies.
