What's your favorite farm stand pie in Monmouth Co?

Since Butterfly Blue closed their farmstand in Long Branch next to the chicken farm a few years ago we have been on the search for fantastic homemade farm stand pies. I know everyone is partial to Delicious Orchards but the only pie I think worthy of any attention there is the Strawberry Rhubarb. Wemwrocks apple pie is pretty decent & Pete's farm stand in Wall sometimes makes the cut but it's hit or miss. Anyone have any good recommendations?!
Geez...! I wish I couldn't answer this. I have a sweet tooth, but really don't care for pies... except! Battleview Orchards Mixed Berry Pie.. oh my! Then last night I bought Peach Melba Pie for company. I had a hard time deciding that or the Pina Colada Pie... will just have to go back. As I said I really don't like pies.. but Battleview Orchards has my pie!
Yes...I like the pies at Rifkin Farms in Millstone/Manalapan.
I only get the pies with all the fruit...apple, cherry, blueberry. I am not even a pie person, but this pie for some reason is really great! So close to home, too. Only about 3 miles off of Rt. 33.
The other place I really like the pies (I get so many questions where I bought them) is Emery's Farm in New Egypt. A little out of the way, but beautiful scenery and I love the farm stands you can hit up. We take my daughter here for pumpkin picking in fall. They have a great blueberry pie..even sell blueberries.
The other block over from them is a great farm market. I buy potatoes, scallions, tomatoes, beets, cucumbers, melons, the place is great....the name escapes me.
Hope this helps!!
