TOWN OF OWEGO, N.Y. - A Town of Owego family has turned their knack for baking great pies into a home business.
Daffodil Hill Bakery opened on Day Hollow Road in September.
Sherry Bell and her three daughters, Debby Davis, Emma Squier and Sarah McCabe, converted a garage into a kitchen and sales counter and started turning out pies and other baked goods.
Using Sherry's mother's crust recipe, they make apple, Dutch apple, pumpkin, blueberry, peach, pecan, cherry-raspberry and lemon meringue.
Plus, every Friday they offer a test kitchen.
"It's free. We don't charge anybody anything for it. You can sign up, call, come in and you get a piece of a newly made pie that we've never made before," said Sherry Bell.
Tasters receive a coupon and are asked to fill out a survey.
Besides pies, Daffodil Hill bakes cinnamon buns, cookies and Grandma's chocolate cake.
It's open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
To make a special order or check to see if your favorite flavor is on the shelf, call (607) 752-6291.
Sherry says if you're calling from a landline, you have to use the area code.
