If you’re looking for the perfect way to end any summer evening, look no further. Satisfy your sweet tooth with some gooey, delectable fresh fruit pies from local farms.

Briarbrook Farm
“Absolutely luscious,” sighed one of our staff members. This blueberry, peach and cherry pie has the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors. The irresistibly flaky, buttery crust is to die for. We all agreed that this pie was truly special – it left us scraping our plates and begging for seconds. 2693 South County Trail, East Greenwich. 884-2066.

Sunset Farms
This very berry pie was berry good indeed. Its beautiful lattice top and homemade look gave way to a thick, chunky filling that was easy to serve and simply delicious. The tart filling is chock-full of tasty berries, with the fresh raspberries particularly standing out. 505 Point Judith Road, Narragansett. 742-1191.

Highland Farm
Highland Farm’s signature humble pie was fully bursting with peaches, raspberries and blueberries. It has a charming and nostalgic appearance, like something grandma made. This light and airy pie is cased in an appealingly sugar cookie-like crust. 4235 Tower Hill Road, Wakefield. 792-8188.

Carpenters Farm
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and apples all come together to make this very unique very berry pie. Its tender crust is totally scrumptious. With a hint of cinnamon, this treat will give you a craving for the flavors of early fall, making it an excellent transition from late summer into the autumn months. 520 Matunuck Beach Road. Wakefield, 783-8958.
