Carlson's Orchard Fresh

    Fund-raising with Carlson's Bakery

    Take-and-Bake Frozen Pies


    Are you looking for the perfect fundraiser? Tired of old fundraisers and looking for something unique?


    We have your solution! Prefect for:

    1. Schools
    2. Teams
    3. Church Groups
    4. Charity Organizations
    5. Community Organizations
    6. Scouting Fundraisers


    What is a Take-n-Bake Frozen Pie?

    The pies are made at our farm bakery from fresh ingredients and immediately frozen without baking - we leave that to the customer. The customer places the frozen pie into the preheated oven for the prescribed time (baking directions provided). The result: a fresh baked pie with maximum flavor, texture, and the delicious aroma during baking!


    How we help you sell your product?

    With four products to choose from, it’s an easy decision for the customer. We provide an order guide, the ‘sales agent’ completes one line on the order guide per customer (name, address, telephone, items, total) and collects the money at the time of order.


    When is the best time of year to begin this fundraiser?

    The timing of the fundraiser fit perfectly with fall and the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season approaching. Hence the slogan: “The perfect product for the perfect season!” Remember, many of these pies will end up at someone's Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!


    How are these products packaged?

    Each dessert is packaged in it’s own clamshell container with a clear overwrap film. The container front has an appealing full color label while the back of the package has the easy baking directions, nutrition statement and ingredient list. The container doubles as an excellent storage container for left over dessert! It’s easy to bring a homemade tasting pie to your dinner without the made from scratch mess!


    How is your product delivered to us and ultimately to the customer?

    You will want to plan for receipt and delivery of these pies on the same day - and all parties are made aware of this date: the customer, the sales agent, and the distribution location. We will deliver your combined order in well marked cases to a predetermined location, for example 2:00 pm. Volunteers set up four tables, one for each variety. As the sales group arrives individually, they are met by a coordinator and the order for that individual filled by product from each table. They are given additional T shirt bags to place each customer order in if they so choose and then they distribute to the customer (some prefer to hand off the frozen pies without the pies being in a bag).
