Trip to Pie Ranch
We took a field trip to 'Pie Ranch', which was a really neat place. Pie ranch is a farm in the shape of two pieces of pie, that grows all kinds of pie ingredients. What is really cool is that they farm everything needed for a pie. From the eggs and wheat for the crust, to the pumpkins, berries, apples and more they got it all. A really interesting fact I learned was that pumpkin pie is actually made with Red Curry Squash!
During the school year 'Pie Ranch' has high school students from San Francisco harvesting and cooking on their farm. When the students return they bring pie ingredients with them and sell pies out of 'Mission Pie' in San Francisco.
Many thanks to Nancy, Jered, Lucas, and Rosa for hosting us!
