Pie making may soon become a lost art. But at Achatz Handmade Pie Co. we still do things the old fashioned way. Many of our recipes have been passed through generations, and we continue the tradition by sharing the same handmade techniques instilled in our childhood.
Achatz pies are made with pure and natural ingredients. We never use chemicals, preservatives or hydrogenated oils. And much of our fruit, flours, sugar and dairy are purchased from local farms. These values result in a top quality product even grandma can be proud of.
We started baking from our Victorian home in Armada, Michigan, in 1993. After moving our operation to a nearby ten-acre apple orchard, Achatz Handmade Pie Co. was officially born. To this day we've maintained our high standards to produce a pie that we believe is simply the best.
Our pies have been featured on Food Network, the Rachael Ray Show and Good Morning America Weekend, winning numerous national and local awards. But they're still down-to-earth, all natural and wholesome. We're keeping it real and we invite you to taste the difference.
Our mission has always been to create for our customers the best pies money can buy. Our tender, flaky crust and real fruit fillings merge with as many locally-grown ingredients as available to create a pie that's fresh and natural. It's no wonder Detroit News food writer Kate Lawson has stated, "Achatz makes the best pies you'll ever eat."
Achatz Handmade Pie Co. cares about what we bring to your kitchen. We continue to stand up to the highest standards for quality, purity and goodness. Our cream pies are made from scratch using pure butter, pure vanilla and fresh local whole milk. We never use canned fruit and find every opportunity to use locally grown produce. And if you can't have sugar, we also have fruit juice sweetened pies available. We know extra care and extra effort make an extra delicious pie!
