57 years is a long time to be in business. Takes a certain amount of dedication and perseverance, sure — but it also takes great products.

Batten’s Bakery in Paragould has some fantastic looking cakes and some delicious pastries — but it also has something I have found nowhere else in the state, a special fried pie with an ages old filling. Bonus is, it’s extraordinary.
