    Will there be a 2010 Apple Pie contest? If so where can I find out information about it (i.e. dates, entrance information, etc.)

    Thank you.

      Hi Rumie,
      The Michigan Apple Committee sponsored this particular pie contest, so I checked their website, michiganapples.com. It appears the time has passed to enter their apple pie contest for 2010. Maybe King Orchards should have one of our own! It could be a great excuse to bake and eat apple pie, plus we can hold the contest in the fall, when we have fresh & wonderful baking apples to work with. What do you think?

    I’m a little slow at responding back but I’d definitely participate in a pie baking contest if you held one. You can count me in! Just let me know the date and time if you do.
