Just one of the many aprons donated in the past years...
When an apron is donated, it is hung on the apron clothesline at Pino Pie Day at Apifera Farm in June. If it doesn't sell, it is either held for the next Pie Day, or is sold on Etsy.
Apron sales benefit old and needy adopted barnyard animals at Apifera, New Moon Goat Farm, Sanctuary One, and Lavender Dreams Donkey Rescue.

Katherine took a shine to aprons when she moved to the farm - they hold great stuff like eggs and hay twine, and she can wipe the runny nose of an old goat at whim.
She also loves to make pie and share it, and one day she took her little donkey, Pino, to a nearby farm, with pie - of course clad in an old apron. It made quite an impression. She shared the story with friends and little Pino started popping up in her art with an apron too. Before you knew it, the donkey was getting aprons in the mail - lots of them. So they decided to put them to good use.
Every June, the aprons are strung along a big clothesline at the farm's annual Pino Pie Day. Apron sales help other goat/donkey/barnyard sanctuaries. Katherine's fresh homemade pie is served as are donkey hugs. Her art and lavender are sold too. How did she start sharing fresh pie, her farm and her donkey? Read the short version.
