The Angel Behind Miss Angel's Heavenly Pies

Updated: Apr 19

Miss Angel’s Heavenly Pies is located in Mount Airy, NC, and is a part of the shops that are included on the Surry Sonker Trail map that is attached a few pieces above. After speaking to Miss Angel, who is originally known as Angela Shur originally from Upstate New York, it was easy to realize that she had been in the game for a while and was doing things her way which has been working out for years.

Her name is Angela, hence “Miss Angel” and she said that the shop was owned and operated by herself and her husband, Randy. Her shop is open seven days a week and her employees have been by her side for many years now as they are family or close family friends. One of the most interesting things about Miss Angel is not because everything is made fresh, but she has her own farm to produce all of the fruit that she uses in her pies. All of her fruits and berries are grown at her 65-acre farm and orchard and the shop never uses preservatives. One thing about having this much land to produce your own fruit is that she is also able to host things on her farm. She hosts different festivals and events year round. Her next one is her annual “Santa’s Coming to Miss Angels Orchard” that will be taking place Sunday, December 4, 2022 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. In an event like this, those will be able to go on a hayride with Santa, while listening to Christmas stories and music. Things to warm the body like hot chocolate, hot cider, and hot chicken stew will be available for purchase as well. Not to mention, people can bring their own cookie recipe to be entered in an Annual Cookie Contest for Charity.

Also, Miss Angel’s farm allows a weekly pick up on Saturdays. These pickups include an assortment of in-season, sustainably-grown fresh fruits, veggies, baked goods, and flowers. Miss Angel also made sure to inform us that any baked goods that did not sell were distributed among the nearby food banks, charities, and shelters of Surry County. It’s good to know that her baked goods are not going to waste, due to how many different kinds of pies her shop makes and the amount of people that love them; business is always booming. Since we were on the Sonker Trail the day before the Autumn Leaves Festival, it was cool to see the environment of the town and how they prepared for the upcoming weekend. Miss Angel mentioned that they would be very busy over the weekend, and that her and her team would be making over one thousand pies for the festival. After speaking with Miss Angel it was not hard to see that she was a good person who loves to give back to the community. She is very family-oriented and makes sure that what she produces and gives to people is nothing short of the best. I hope that more people visit her shop, meet her, and try one of her delicious pies or many other baked goods. Any visitor who stops by will not forget their visit to Miss Angel’s Heavenly Pies; they are in fact, quite heavenly.
