Kerber’s Pies Named One of Oprah’s Favorite Things

Once an abandoned poultry farm, Kerber’s Farm in Huntington is now a destination. Visitors travel from far and wide for their baked goods, selection of gift boxes, and their unique take on Long Island’s most beloved breakfast sandwich—the bacon, egg and cheese—served here on a buttery cheddar biscuit.

Another reason people love to check out Kerber’s: Their pies.

The farm-store always has a beautiful selection of pies available for purchase, and Kerber’s even sells its own Homemade Apple Pie Kit at the store, locally, and at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, and more nationwide.

It was Kerber’s pies that first made Oprah Winfrey and her team take notice. So when Winfrey released her annual list of Favorite Things on Thursday, November 2, there they were: Three pies from Kerber’s. S’mores, Kerberry Crumb, and Traditional Apple. All three are available for sale in-store and on Kerber’s website.

The timing of Oprah’s announcement was particularly pleasing for us, as we were hard at work putting the final touches on our holiday issue when her list of Favorite Things was announced. Included in our holiday issue is a beautiful feature on Kerber’s Farm by our own Kelly Ann Smith; in it, she tracks how owner Nick Voulgaris has really turned the space around—and, in the process, built the foundation for a heritage brand right in Huntington.

So stay tuned for that story in our upcoming holiday issue. We can’t wait to share it with you. But in the meantime, please join us in celebrating the success of one of our food system’s own. Cheers, Kerber’s. You’ve been one of our favorite things for years (but we’re happy to share you with Oprah).
