Jeremy Huffman is a workaholic, so when the opportunity arose to purchase land and a pie shop, he was all for it. He — along with his wife, Angie, and their three young children, Josh, Colby and Karami — recently acquired the shop previously known as “Eta Pi,” located at 3415 C 1/2 Road in Palisade.

Palisade Pies offers fresh baked pies spanning 30 different flavors including fruit, creme and cheese pies (cheesecake in pie crust). Pricing per pie ranges from $18-22 depending on style, and slices cost $4.50 each. The shop will likely offer home-made ice cream soon as well.

“It’s been exciting,” Angie said, “and it’s been an adventure.”

Relatively new to baking pies, Angie said she’s using previous recipes developed by the former owners. She’s also putting her own twist on them, finding the right mix of fruit and crust.

“We have had ‘pie-offs’ between me and Jeremy to see which recipe is better,” she noted.

Not sure what to try? Jeremy currently favors a variety of pies, including lemon senko creme, raspberry cheese and “of course, peach.”

According to the Huffmans, all fruit used in their pies is acquired from local sources; and by next harvest season they hope to use fruit grown at their family’s four-acre farm — including peaches, apples, plums and apricots.

“We are trying to support the local community as much as possible,” Jeremy explained.

The shop’s winter hours run Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and orders can be made by phone all week for the holidays.

Christmas orders are currently being taken, Angie added.
