Low hanging fruit


apple pie

Growing up, my family was never big on pies.  My mum was not much of a baker.  But when I got married, I married into a pie family.  The Bernoskis love pies, especially apple pies.  Apples are a big deal in Washington State where I live.  Washington grows about 45% of all the apples in the U.S. and is far and way the biggest apple producing state in the country.  Last year Washington produced more apples than ever before; the crop was worth about $7 billion.  The Middle Kingdom bought $6 billion worth of goods from Washington State last year, including $1 billion worth of apples.  And lots of Almond Rocca apparently.

While I love apples and apple pies, I recently discovered an apple pie that is awesome, but you won’t be able to eat it.  But it is made in Washington State, in Seattle to be more specific.  Apple Pie is a new Made in America website that helps find the products made by members of our extended American family that you are looking to buy.  Apple Pie sells some of the products, such as Lamson Sharp knives, that are featured in my soon to be published book, Simply American, Putting Our Extended American Family Back To Work.  Some other great products featured on the apple pie site are Trunki ride on toys,

Crayon Rocks,

I encourage you to check out the apple pie website.  You will find lots of consumer products you need, and you will have the added benefit of knowing that your purchases will be providing employment for members of our extended American family working around this wonderful country of ours.

Now get shopping!
