With a great love of pie, an enthusiasm for local agriculture, and an entrepreneurial spirit, Molly Johnston started Nomadic Pies in 2012.
Looking back on the early days feels like such a dream. It really was as whimsical as it sounds. I happened upon an old newspaper delivery truck from Allentown’s “Morning Call” on my birthday, while chatting with my uncle Hugh. Just having graduated from University, I had found myself living in a city I didn’t feel connected to, wondering what on earth I was going to do next. Without any real plan (this will become a theme…), I bought this empty Grumman box truck. Fresh out of school, with no money, I bought it for a song, and built it out myself, as bare bones as it could be.
When I say I had no plan, I mean I HAD NO PLAN. So, I bought this newspaper delivery truck… I moved back to Chester County and things started to fall into place. I had developed a real interest in sustainable agriculture while I was in college. My amazing sister had introduced me to an incredible network of people. FARMERS. The people that were growing and producing food. From then on, everything I learned about conventional, commercial agriculture blew my mind. I wanted nothing to do with it. I wanted to know my farmer. I wanted to know my food. I started to raise chickens and turkeys, at the same time that I started to build my business.
