Kozlowski Farms in Forestville

After stopping at Andy's to pick up the Locomotion BBQ, I continued up the Gravenstein Highway (116) to Forestville to see what's up at Kozlowski Farms. No fresh berries, and I checked the freezer case for fresh-frozen black raspberries but no luck. Lots of Marionberries, Boysenberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries though.
I bought a half-gallow of apple and raspberry cider and a snickerdoodle. The snickerdoodle was just starting to hit the chewy stage. After a couple bites, I wrapped it up again and will try to save it for another day to see if it gets chewier.

Stopped by Kozlowski's new retail store (and production facility) this afternoon when I was in the neighborhood. It opened in June and is on the same driveway as the earlier shop, no change of address.
Signs were up to order holiday pies. Most are $13.95 and pecan pie is $16.95. I got an apple hand pie, $3.50, made with organic Gravenstein apples. Stiffer crust than I remember (maybe not fresh?), and more cinnamon in the corn starch glue holding the apple chunks together. But the flavor of the Gravenstein apples made this worthwhile.

We may have been there the same time today. We picked up some wine at the Scherrer Open House (they were also serving some very nice appetizers).
Could not pass up a stop at Kozlowski's which is practically walking distance from Scherrer. All the pies looked good, may pick up one closer to the Holidays.
Did pick up a jar of fig and muscat wine preserves for serving with some cheese and a bottle of plum and roasted chipotle grilling sauce for pork tenderloins.
It was nice that you could sample just about anything they were selling.
Bear in mind that Malicki isn't there every day. Also, there are other cooks who work at the Casino. His schedule seems to be Thursday-Sunday, dinner. The Casino posts a menu on FB every day. But to be sure that it is Malicki's menu and not a different cook's shift, rely on his own FB page, https://www.facebook.com/mark.malicki...
I'd say that this small pie tart was not a fair comparison. Mostly I've had berry pies from Kozlowski, though I couldn't say that I've tried a piece since the changes in shortening to eliminate transfats. Generally I'd say that the fillings are better at Kozlowski and the crust a bit better at Mom's. Here's my post on the pecan pie at Mom's.
That said, the best pie I've tried recently is from Petaluma Pie in P-town.
