When it comes to the fall season, few things are as sweet as pie. On the East End, there’s no shortage of freshly-baked fillings straight from the farm in a perfectly flakey, warm crust that was made on the premises. So, while you’re checking off that seasonal to-do list of hayrides, pickings, and shopping, here are some farm stands to drop by for that slice of pie on the North Fork.
Briermere Farms in Riverhead makes everything from scratch, with most of the fresh fruit grown directly on the farm. The 2018 pie list is mouthwatering: blackberry apple, peach cherry, raspberry plum, boysenberry, blueberry cream, coconut meringue, key lime, and more. Located at 4414 Sound Avenue. Call 631-722-3931.
Woodside Orchards is an apple pie lover’s dream. The orchard is known for its U-Pick apples, so it makes sense that all of their seasonal pies are made with handpicked fruit.

Located at 729 Main Road Route 25 in Aquebogue or 116 Manor Lane in Jamesport. Call 631-722-5770.
Just down the road from Woodside is another stop. If you’re driving down Main Road in Jamesport you’ve likely seen the Junda’s Pastry Crust & Crumbs “Home Made Pies” sign, luring you in.
