Wyoming County Fair: 4-H'er achieves peach pie perfection in Pike, qualifies
for NY State Fair with winning entry
Paired with a winning smile, Veronica “Ronnie” George submitted her winning peach pie on opening day of the Wyoming County Fair. Her pie — which was the practice pie she submitted for the pie section — prior to Wednesday’s auction night — was made from peaches sold at Craig Northey’s stand in Strykersville.

peach pie was selected for
New York State Fair. This
is her first year in 4-H.
Ronnie, 9, is a member of the Barnyard Crew 4-H Club that meets monthly at Arcade Elementary school. Instructions for the pie submission included making a fruit pie, other than apple, that could be latticed or two crust or with cut-out pastry design. The crust needed to be rolled out and made entirely from scratch.
