IMG_0756We are bringing back the pie-baking contest to the 2013 LEFDP Harvest Festival. Compete with the finest CSA and farming community members in the Monterey Bay area. Show off your baking skills and become a hero of this year’s festival. ; )

Anyone can be a judge. This year we are having a raffle to determine our judging panel. Everyone who enters a pie in the contest will receive one free raffle ticket vie for a spot as a judge, but no one will be allowed to vote on their own pie.

DSC03855All ages are encouraged to enter the contest and awards will be given at 5:45pm during our community circle before the potluck dinner begins.

To enter the contest, please bring your pie to the Welcome Cart near the fire circle by 4pm sharp. We will announce raffle winners at 4 at the Fire Circle, so if you are hoping to judge these pies and sneak a taste before everyone else, please be there with tickets in hand. You must be present to win.

In your kitchens . . . grab your rolling pin . . . let the pie-baking contest begin.
