STEAK, bacon, mushroom, chicken, prawn, asparagus – you name it, we’ve got it.

The Clarence Valley boasts some of the best pies in the country and now the people have voted and the verdict is in.

Pot Belly Pies in Yamba and Maclean is officially the ‘Pick of the Valley’ when it comes to pies.

Hundreds of votes have poured in during the past five weeks in The Daily Examiner’s ‘Pick of the Valley Pies’ competition to name the maker of the perfect pie.

There was a slight motivator for readers to cast their votes and it obviously worked well.

A voter for the winning shop was randomly picked to win a $50 pie voucher at their favourite pie place.

Yamba’s Jennye Davis was plucked from the masses to secure the win, choosing the surf and turf as her top pie.

“It was a hard pick because all their pies are beautiful,” she said.

“But the meat they use is delicious and the seafood creamy sauce is fantastic.”

And with Christmas on its way and the family coming to stay, Jennye knows just how she’ll spend her voucher.

The results

 First: Pot Belly Pies, Yamba and Maclean.

 Second: Aussie Pie Shack, South Grafton.

 Third: Hanks Kitchen, Grafton.
