Best pie in Monadnock/Upper Valley NH/VT?

Looking for the best fruit pies in Southeast New Hampshire/Southwest Vermont--we're getting married in Walpole, NH, next summer, and we want to serve wedding pie instead of cake!

We'll travel anywhere from the Brattleboro area up to Hanover/White River Junction in search of great pie. A few places we're thinking of trying are:

Lou's in Hanover, NH
King Arthur Flour in Norwich, VT
Kristin's in Keene, NH
Vermont Country Deli in Brattleboro, VT

Any other recommendations? Thank you!

  1. I would try to find someone local who does only pies. If you want a really amazing product usually the people who make the best pies really only make pies. They hold a pie contest in norwich once a year, perhaps you could research the winners and contact them. Dealing with someone small like that you'll get a nicer product with real ingredients instead of pre-sliced preservative laden apples and pre-made crust. (not downing any of the people on your list, i know for sure that king arthur's pies are unbelievably good, and am unsure of the rest)

    1. Grandma Miller's in S. Londonderry VT has amazing pies. They also sell them at various farm stands and retail stores throughout southern VT. Walker Farm in Dummerston carries them.

      1. Thanks to you both for your replies!

        Bri, someone else had suggested Grandma Miller's and I had forgotten, so thank you for the reminder.

        1. Just checking back in to say that we tried all the places in my original post, and Kristin's won our wedding contract. They were all good in their own way, but we thought they had the most interesting filling flavor and a wonderful light, crispy crust.

          1. well this is a bit further, to Keene Valley NY, buy the selection and quality are superb, plus they do mail order. the place is Noonmark diner.
