What’s more Vermont than maple? All things maple on full display starting at 2 pm today at Baird farm in North Chittenden, for the Great North American maple pie contest.

During the competition there will be activities like pie throwing, lawn games, and of course eating pie and ice cream.

The winner of the pie contest will receive a year’s supply of maple syrup and other pie themed prizes.
