Historic Occoquan (VA)-Mom's Apple Pie Company and General Store

Moms Apple PieThe smell of pies baking is not coming from my house. That is the good news for my friends and family The even better news is that we only have to go a few miles away from our home in Belmont Bay to the historic town of Occoquan to find Mom's Apple Pie Company and General Store.

All of the pies at Mom's are made fresh with local ingredients. You can actually find someone peeling apples in the kitchen and you have your choice of the traditional two crust apple pie or the brown sugar crumb topping. Even though the store is called Mom's Apple Pie you will of course find a few other popular choices as well. Depending on the season you can find blackberry, raspberry and rhubarb fruit pies available. In the fall the pies change to the classics you would expect for Thanksgiving and Christmas with pumpkin, mincemeat and pecan.

Of course with any good bakery the pies aren't the only thing you can find when you walk in the door. If you time your visit right you can grab one of the great spinach and feta cheese croissants which are a great to share for dinner and there are always the cookies. Looking at the stack of coconut macaroons is enough to put you instantly into sugar overload.

Moms General StoreMom's Apple Pie Shop just isn't about the sweets. During the summer you can also pick up fresh veggies straight from the farm. In Occoquan, Mom's also has a General Store that carries a wide selection of wines, organic groceries and bait. Yes that is fish bait. Occoquan does sit on a river and you will see the locals out on their boats casting a line for dinner.

The next time you are headed to Occoquan take a few minutes to enjoy the sights and smells of Mom's Apple Pie Store. Your waistline might not be glad you did but your stomach will be very happy!

Hi Cindy - It sounds like a great place. I love homemade pies, you made me hungry reading about them.

This looks like my kind of place Cindy. This type of establishment will never go out of style!

makes me think of the cartoon character, Hugh Neutron (Jimmy Neutron's father), "Mmmmmm, pie!"  Much better than Home Simpsons donuts.  (I just love cartoons. I must be going into my second childhood).

Hi Cindy, Those apple pies smell delicious.  Apple and peanut butter are my favorite. Love places like this!

Maria-I used to do a good deal of baking.  Now I can "fool" the family with homemade pies made at someone elses home :-)

Vicki-this is a place to stop not only for pie but cookies and other goodies too.

Ken-it takes a real man to admit that he still likes cartoons.  Did you ever leave your first childhood?  I'm not sure I did!

Sandy-apple pie and ice cream, apple pie and cheddar cheese but I've never had apple pie and peanut butter at the same time.
