That’s All Folks!

Apple Pecan Caramel Crumble Pie at Petaluma Pie CompanyIt is officially too late to order pies for Thanksgiving. We have gotten so many orders and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. Now it is time to get all those pies ready for you to pick up.

If you are the last minute type who didn’t get your order in, we are sorry. We won’t be answering the phone, because every call will be someone trying to order for Thanksgiving. Then how will we have time to make all the pies?

We can’t reserve any pies for you, BUT we will do our best to make as many extra pies as we can for Wednesday. They will be available on a first come, first served basis. We will be open Wednesday November 23rd until 4pm and we will be closed on Thanksgiving. We will be open again on Friday.

Thank you for your business and thank you for your understanding.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Congratulations Chris Cota!

Petaluma Mayor David Glass and Chris Cota

We are so pleased to announce that Petaluma Pie Company employee, Chris Cota was presented with a Mayor’s Committee for Best Practices award and a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition by Mayor David Glass of Petaluma last week. Chris was selected for his achievements in overcoming his (dis)abilities and going to Santa Rosa Junior College to study engineering, getting a job at Petaluma Pie Company, and working towards becoming independent. Chris was given a life-changing diagnosis 8 years ago while he was still in high school. Chris had struggled with his debilitating health issues, but was determined not to let them stop him from pursuing his dream. According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only about 17.5 percent of people who are identified as disabled are employed but Chris’s achievements defy the grim statistics. Chris is recognized for paving a path towards independence for other folks with disabilities. Congratulations Chris!  

Happy Fall!

As you may have noticed, it’s autumn! Over the coming weeks and months,our summer fruit pies will be slowly falling off the menu as we bring back pumpkin, sweet potato and pecan. Because we are in California, we will still have some summer fruits for a while longer but don’t be surprised if you walk in and an old favorite like peach is gone.

We’ve got hot cider and hot chocolate, pear pie and more!  Look out for upcoming holiday pie tastings, too…

Labor Day Weekend!

Hey Everybody, Happy Labor Day Weekend!

We are laboring away for you, making pies, and we will be open all weekend, including Monday. As usual, please order ahead if you want a particular pie, as we tend to get very busy on Labor Day Weekend.

We will be closing early, at 5pm on Monday, Labor Day.

Pies of Summer

nectarine blackberry or strawberry rhubarb pie at petaluma pie company, petaluma, californiaDid you notice the days getting a little shorter and the chill in the air in the evenings? Some of you are even back in school! That is right, it is the tail end of summer. If you want to hang on to that summer feeling just a little longer, we’ve got you covered. While we have gotten word that peaches will be ending a few weeks earlier than normal this year, summer fruit pies are still happening, like peach, nectarine blackberry, triple berry and strawberry rhubarb. And we have ice cream. If you are feeling more autumnal, we’ve got apples again and we even have apple pecan crumble with salted caramel. Pear pie is just around the corner.
