Hello Good Pie is a mobile pie van run by Clare Lewis. Clare previously worked as a social worker, and during a year long break from work, she began baking as a method of mindfulness. She began baking for friends and family who loved her pies, and that’s where her journey began.
New to the food business, Clare made the switch to the food business in 2019 by launching Hello Good Pie. Having been brought up in a large, traditional family, food to Clare is intrinsically linked with family - sharing and giving, and expressing love through the stomach! This is the heart of Hello Good Pie - providing hearty meals to warm and nourish the soul.
With pies being a traditional favourite in the UK and across the world, Hello Good Pie aims to please. With rich and exciting flavours that entice the taste buds, Hello Good Pie uses locally farmed organic meat and vegetables to create quality, fresh and affordable pies. One of their local suppliers is Penrhiw organic Farm, situated just on the hills behind Clare’s home kitchen! Clare says choosing local Welsh produce and being environmentally friendly is important to her, and she always ensure to source produce as locally as she can, and always ensures that her packaging for the pies is compostable or biodegradable.
Being mobile allows Clare to continue to enjoy the great outdoors during her work day and gives her the freedom to promote her pies where they are truly needed. However, recently she has also been given the opportunity to trade at the home of Glamorgan Cricket 'Sophia Gardens'. Fans and staff loved her pies, the perfect treat after a hard game. Clare named her Organic Minced Welsh Lamb & Shallot Pie the Glamorgan Pie after the club and their big fans of her pies.
While 2019 wasn’t the best year to start a new business, Hello Good Pie remained strong throughout the pandemic by providing home deliveries, and Clare is even hoping to set up a postal delivery service in the future!
In addition to their pies, Hello Good Pie serves a variety of sides including chips, mashed potato, mushy peas, gravy and curry sauce as well as hot and cold drinks.
