Pie and Box UPDATE: Wednesday, December 13th, 2017


Pies number 15 and 16 are in the oven…Crusts for pies 17 through 20 are made and in the fridge waiting for the oven to be free! This is a first for me–making this many pies–this is day two of a three day project!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here–Farmer’s Wife is in the kitchen baking, and Farmer and Oldest Son went up the mountain today and brought down the evergreen for our Christmas Tree!  It’s sitting outside the back door;  We’ll bring it in tomorrow after the last of the pies are finished, and the Special Boxes are all packed and ready to go to Bee Healthy Friday morning for Pick Up.  I may have 2 Extra Special Boxes with Pies–$30 each.  (There is still a Special Box from last week at Bee Healthy–unclaimed– $25.)

A note on the pie ingredients:  All natural ingredients, organic where feasible.  Crust is coconut oil, flour, salt, water.  Ingredients for the pie are New England Pie pumpkin from our garden, half and half, brown sugar and molasses, pumpkin pie spices, cornstarch, and eggs.  Each is different as they are hand made!

I will be at Bee Healthy Friday to hand out the boxes and Pumpkin Pies, and to answer questions on Buyer’s Group/Walk-in’s Welcome which starts January 4th!  No membership fees or up-front costs–just a commitment to buy two Administrator’s Specials a month at $25.  Admin Specials include Fruits and Veggies, organic and some of our own.  We will also have extra fruit and veggies for sale for members and Walk-in’s, but the Admin Special is how you are assured you will get a balance of fruits and veggies–reserved for you!  We always stock greens, herbs, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, onions, and fruit, and sometimes will have an Extra Box for sale.  Buyer’s Group will be every Thursday at Bee Healthy, in the back.

Merry Christmas!  See you Friday at Bee Healthy!  The Farmer’s Wife

Pie Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pie


Inside today’s box (Special Box December 8th) is a GIFT!  Appropriate this time of year 🙂 !  A New England Pie Pumpkin–Sugar Pie!  Just in time for Holiday Pumpkin Pie!

Go to Lloyd Craft Farms Facebook page for a video of how to make your pie with the sugar pumpkin in your box–

If you don’t have time or desire to watch a video, here’s the recipe:

Sugar Pie Pumpkin- roughly 3#

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cut sugar pumpkin in half, scoop out seeds, rub oil all over the skin, place face down on cookie sheet, and bake 1 hour or until roasted through.  Let cool.

Make the crust or use a purchased pie crust.


1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. whipping cream
2 T. cornstarch
2 T. molasses
2 T. oil
1 T. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
3 large eggs

For the filling:  Scoop out the pulp from the roasted pumpkin and puree in a food processor until smooth (you should have about 4 cups).  Add the condensed milk, cream, cornstarch, molasses, oil, cinnamon, ginger, salt and eggs and combine thoroughly.

Pour the filling into the crust and bake until the filling is set in the center, about 1 hour.  Transfer the pie to a rack and cool for 30 minutes.  Serve at room temperature or chilled.


Enjoy!  The Farmer’s Wife
