 Noticed in the Big Apple
During a recent tour of New York City, attending members of the Ontario Farm Fresh Marketing Association (OFFMA) spotted these eye-popping items.

Excerpted with permission from the OFFMA Fresh Facts Newsletter, issue #325, December 2017. Our thanks to the editors for sharing.

Not-so-humble pie!

New York City will always be remembered as the home of the $42 pie.

No that is not a typo. Four and Twenty Blackbirds has been in business for seven years. Sisters, Emily and Melissa were committed to using the best ingredients they could find for their pies and in order to be sustainable the price was $35.

Expenses have gone up and so has the cost of their pies.

The sisters have a market for these pies as they sold 5,000 during the 2016 Thanksgiving holiday. Just recently they started selling their frozen pie crusts for home bakers to try their hand at making their own pies.

Creative bench design

This cool bench was spotted outside of a bakery in NYC. Whoever created it made sure to include a tray for your coffee cup. Easily moveable as well.


You should leave your farm once a day, your village once a week, your county once a month and your province at least once a year.
