Pie in the Sky Photos by Josh Baldo 4 3 2 1 1 Co-owner Jamie Potter points out the boundaries on the six-acre organic farm. Before Pie in the Sky was in the red barn on state Route 7 in Otego, Potter and his wife, Janet Powers, sold their goods where the Cooperstown All Star Village is on state Route 23 in Oneonta. The Pie has been in Otego for 20 years. 2 The farm’s ‘sugar bush,’ where trees are tapped for sap to make maple syrup. There are tomatoes in the greenhouses, and blackberries, broccoli, strawberries and squash are growing in the raised beds. 3 Powers opens the netting to the gardens. ‘We have rabbits, lots of them,’ she says. 4 Used plants are re-tilled back into the soil to add nutrients. Crops are rotated each season into different beds to avoid disease and promote healthy plants. 16 O-Town Scene July 28, 2011
