This Idaho Farm Stand May Be Worth the Trip Just for a Pie
Luckily this place isn't too.
If you've hung out with me on the air the last few weeks you know that I've been preaching playing tourist around town and around our state. There are so many wonderful things to see and experience all around us. I'm a big fan of supporting local and that includes just exploring the place in which we live. And with COVID international travel restrictions still in place, it's the next best thing.
You never know what you might stumble across, like Volcanic Farms in Horseshoe Bend.
I personally haven't been here, but they recently got some love on OnlyInYourState.com. The website shouted out their mission of handling foods properly after being dissatisfied with traditional stores. So they opened up their own farm stand in 1986. And while fresh produce is delicious, it's even better when served in a buttery, flakey crust.
I'm talking about pie.
See, Volcanic Farms has gained quite a following for their pies. I'm not sure this was on their radar when they opened up their doors, but sometimes in business you gotta go with what's hot. Only In Your State shouted out their huckleberry, marionberry (had to Google that one), strawberry rhubarb, apple, cherry, and pumpkin pies.
As someone who grew up in a tiny town known for its pies, my mouth is beginning to water.
The farm stand also features eggs, jams and jellies, pickled items and salsa. And unlike a traditional farmers market, they are open all year round. Have you visited Volcanic Farms before?
