Thanks to our wonderful pie aficionados who came out to judge!

Judges tried pacing themselves as they worked their way through the 15 pies at the competition. Hard to do when each pie was a winner!

Apple cider pressing took place alongside the pie competition and proved fun for all ages.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in CUESA’s Pie Contest! Hope to see you all back next year!

Thanks to our talented bakers and judges who came out for CUESA’s Pie Contest on Saturday at our Mission Rock Farmers…
