Pie Town, population 283, was definitely worth the trip! What a beautiful little gem. Serendipitously, we arrived the day the Pie-o-neer reopened for the season—the folks from the surrounding area (up to 200 miles away) come back to this little café with excitement. They gather and catch up after a long winter. Pie Town sustains two pie cafes, DanCyn’ Windmill Museum with a ton of donated windmills and old farm equipment, and an abandoned car garage—that’s all, nothing else. With one hundred miles of open road in front of and behind you, and nothing but lots of rusty cars and falling down barns in between, you feel like you have traveled back in time when you visit Pie Town. We tried every pie Pie-O-Neer had on the shelf and they certainly know their pie.
