Derived from an Aboriginal word meaning ‘quiet resting place by the river’, Tumut is a charming base for enjoying the natural wonders, outdoor adventures and delicious produce of the NSW Snowy Mountains.
The history of Pie in the Sky Bakery
Ten years ago, sisters Jane Dean and Maureen Cook took the plunge and decided to go into business together, giving birth to Tumut’s Pie in the Sky Bakery. “It was just a fresh, new venture. I had worked in various small businesses before, but I had also been raising my three kids and Maureen had been working in aged care,” said Jane.
Tasked with picking a name for their new business, the sisters decided on Pie in the Sky, due in part to the gentle teasing from their brother about their ‘pie in the sky ideas’.
The sisters bake their pies on site each day, with fillings such as steak and bacon, and the very old-school steak and kidney. Sandwiches are made fresh to your liking, cold drinks that go down like a treat and a wide variety of cakes and slices available.
