Boyce General Store celebrates 150 years
Brie Golliher’s pie kitchen, shown, at Boyce General Store in Alvaton is…small.
“I call it my pie hole,” she says, of the tiny space.
At about 100 square feet, it’s barely big enough to churn out pecan and peanut butter fudge mini pies she bakes for Whole Foods in Louisville and Lexington, but not quite big enough to expand to other locations.
Still, she manages to make enough pies and no-bake cookies to satisfy customers who come to the weekly year-round Friday fish fries, which are likely to draw 300 customers, and the warm-weather monthly Pickin’ on the Patio, a Saturday live-music event that can draw up to 700 people.
August’s Pickin’ on the Patio (August 17) is the store’s 150th birthday, so there will be cake (and pie) along with live music, games for kids and more.
Boyce General Store is at 10551 Woodburn Allen Springs Road in Alvaton, near Bowling Green. Visit www.burgerandpies.com to learn more.
Nest Pie is a recipe Brie created for the annual Duncan Hines baking contest held at Chaney’s Dairy Barn. It’s gluten-free, beautiful and delicious.
