When Grampa's started in 2011, our objective was, and continues still today, to bring to you, a unique, freshly made pasty, by way of local farmers markets.
We chose the name "Grampas" as an acronym for "The Great American Pasty & Pie Co" and most importantly because Chef Gerard (now retired) has taught all his grandchildren to cook.
With our English/South African heritage, we began this journey with our very own "English pot pie". However, in keeping with Michigan tradition, the "yooper pasty" has become our much-loved signature product.
We are very proud of our success through the years, having gone from "just the two of us", now to employing others, and in so realizing how important it is to helping others. What began with 1 market has now developed into 14 markets per week. What began with just 1 style of pasty has now developed into 14 varieties. What began with only "freshly baked" has now developed to "unbaked frozen" and "baked frozen".
Our goal is to bring to you an excellent "fresh" product, at a reasonable price!
We are a proud supporter of Michigan Farmers markets!
