10 Best Apple Pie Shops in Vermont

Did you know that the apple pie is Vermont’s official state pie? That means from Ludlow to Bennington to Woodstock, you’ll find an incredible variety of options for a delicious homemade apple pie. Whether you enjoy yours with a wedge of cheddar, a la mode, or straight up, these Vermont options offer only the best. Here are our favorites.  

Poorhouse Pies, Underhill, VT

Poorhouse Pies doesn’t have a fancy storefront, and you won’t find them carried at your local grocery store. In fact, you won’t find them at all, outside of a handful of Burlington area restaurants and small markets. However, these pies are hands down some of the best pies in Vermont. We are talking about handmade apple pies, nut pies, cream pies, seasonal pies, tarts, and shortcakes.

Vermont Apple Pies, Ludlow, VT

This pie shop in the Okemo Valley not only serves delicious homemade pies, but they also serve breakfast. The upshot is that you can get buttermilk pancakes, Belgian waffles, omelets, and French Toast until noon to go with your slice of authentic Vermont apple pie. Of course, you can get homemade cheesecakes, sticky buns, and other tasty treats, too, but we’ll stick with the pie, thank you much.

The Apple Barn, Bennington, VT

The Apple Barn is the retail arm of Southern Vermont Orchards, an orchard with roots that reach back all the way to 1910 and estate owned by a man named Edward Hamlin Everett, the inventor of a fruit jar that would eventually become the Ball and Mason jars. At his majestic home, he once owned 75,000 heritage apple trees, and, now, Southern Vermont Orchards owns what is left of his historic orchard, and they sell some of the best apple pies in the state.

The Hartland Diner, Hartland, VT

The Hartland Diner very much embodies the old Vermont saying, “you can’t get there from here,” and, though, it is accessible from Interstate 91, you may feel like you are lost in Vermont as you drive through the tiny town of Hartland. But, make no mistake, this is one food destination you don’t want to miss, as from-scratch breakfasts are served all day and the pies are all but famous.
