Willamette Valley Pie Company
When your berries and pies are sold all around the country, you need to have a lot of them. And indeed, Willamette Valley Pie Company's team handles 20 million pounds of fruit every summer and makes 2,400 pies during each eight-hour shift at the bakery. Its berries—all of which are individually quick-frozen so they won't stick together—also go into yogurt, muffins, ice cream, and smoothies.
At its core, however, the company is local and family-owned. That's why it opened its Farm Store in 2009, creating a place where visitors could order freshly baked pies, tour the facilities, and even pick their own berries from the fields. The store also hosts an annual Pie and Harvest Festival in October. There, guests partake in classic autumnal activities, from exploring mazes to going on speed-dates with pumpkins to find their perfect match.
