The claim to fame here is the pie. They farm their own berries so the pies are fresh and tasty. You can eat in or take out. The produce selection is limited. There are better places along the road for that.

Stopped off at the Pie Ranch to pickup one of their legendary walnut pies. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived (3:30 pm on a Tuesday), they were completely sold out. Next time, the pie ranch will be our first stop.
