LANSING -- In honor of today's date (3/14), also known as "Pi Day," The Grand Traverse Pie Company is giving away free pie.
State education and agriculture officials will be on hand at several stores around the state to serve up pie made with Michigan fruit for half an hour, beginning at 3:14 in the afternoon.
Today also marks Michigan Agriculture Day, an event Grand Traverse Pie Company's founder says goes hand-in-hand with Pi Day.
"We at Grand Traverse Pie Company are honored to help shine a light on the quality of both the agricultural bounty of our state and the important role that education plays within our state on this Pi Day 3.14," says Mike Busley, one of the restauarant's co-founders.
"Only through Michigan's superior fruits and crops can we make our wonderful pies."
