This pie run we will try something a little different.  Instead of driving to the pie spot we will start the drive from there.  We will begin at Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, MD and end at Prince Michel Winery in Madison , VA.  As always all persons are welcome to attend, whether a member or non-member.

Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, MD (near Camp David).  We have been here so many times do I really need to repeat myself.  A few of us have been known to leave CMO w/ 12+ pies.  CMO is a mom & pop operation specializing in homemade pies,  either baked or frozen.  They also have fresh fruits, preserves, jams, jellies, dressings and cider. 

Note:  I highly recommend ordering your pies ahead of time since we are a large group.  The pies can be ordered freshly baked or frozen.  Some people do bring a cooler with them to keep their pies from sliding around in the trunk, especially since we have a lot more fun driving to do.  When you place your order, reference the "BMW group".  The pies range in price from $8.95-$10.95. Check their site for the different types of pie.

IMPORTANT:  The deadline for calling or emailing in orders for pies is Thursday, August 5th.  Pies I like:  Apple Walnut, Strawberry, Cherry Crumb, Peach, Peach Blueberry, Blueberry, Four Berry.

Next stop, Wilson Farms Meat Co., they have been a family run business for 55 years.   They sell every part of the cow, lamb and pig.  All meats are cut to order.  This is a great opportunity to pick up some great aged meat for the summer grill.  Maya, the owner, is a joy to deal with and is quick witted.  Don’t take her jabs seriously, she is only joking. 
Wilson's is a cash only business.  No checks are accepted unless you are an established customer.  It is highly recommended that you place your order in advance, especially if you want a custom cut.  The store front is quite small and they will keep things moving.  The meat will be packaged individually wrapped and then boxed tied with butcher’s string.  You will definitely need to bring a cooler.  We will pass plenty of places to pick up ice.  There is also a place about a 1/2 mile away to pick up ice.  The cut off date for ordering is August 6.  I will send order form via email if you contact me:
Lunch is a pie run favorite, The Bavarian Chef, it has been operated continuously by the Thalwitz family since its opening in 1974.  Its cuisine is distinctively German and all the food is prepared onsite using Thalwitz recipes.  Its recipes are sought after, but can only be discovered with the senses.  When Eckhard and Bruni Thalwitz opened the Bavarian Chef in 1974, it quickly became a local favorite, renowned for its incredible portions of authentic German food and warm hospitality.  

The restaurant usually opens at 4:30 on Saturdays, but the owner is willing to open early for our group.  The menu for our group will be fixed with beef, chicken, pork and fish entree options, assorted sides, dessert and drinks (non-alcoholic) for $31/person including tax and gratuity.  They give you so much food that you are sure to take home a doggie bag!
From lunch, we will head to Prince Michel Winery which is about 15 minutes from The Bavarian Chef.  The tastings are complimentary at Prince Michel Winery.
