Bite Of Minnesota: Pizza Farm
Today's Most Popular Video
Whether it be the journey or the destination, there are some places that will always be memorable. For me, it’s the pizza farm in Stockholm, Wisconsin.
Back a few years ago, it was a word of mouth thing. There were whisperings of a farm that made pizzas in a wood-fired oven once a week and showing up early was a must to avoid a long wait. After gathering some information (including a possible address), my husband and I drove the 1 ½ hours to Stockholm, waited in line to order pizza and waited 1 ½ hours for our number to be called. It was a fun experience and one that I wanted to share with family next time.
A few years have passed since that road trip and the pizza farm now has a website and a devoted following of their Tuesday pizza nights, but I had yet to return with my family as planned. Luckily, I had the perfect excuse to get them to drive to Wisconsin on a Tuesday night: my birthday.
We arrived prepared with chairs, coolers, snacks, and games for the kids and spent a few lovely hours outdoors on the farm. Since it was after Labor Day, the wait for a pizza was a mere seven minutes, significantly less than our wait in the middle of summer. The menu was a bit different too, offering variations on the pizzas we tried last time along with a few new menu items like Bacon Pizza! It was the group’s favorite and was eaten quickly. Next time we’re ordering two.
It was a gorgeous evening to enjoy the outdoors and eat pizza on a farm and it was a fun experience for my family. I went to bed a very happy birthday girl!
The pizza farm is open every Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. from mid-May until November. The ingredients used are straight from their farm and it’s BYO-everything except pizza. There is plenty of room to lay a blanket on the grass and they also have indoor spaces for when the weather gets colder (which I hear is on its way). If you visit the pizza farm, drop me a note as I’d love to hear about your experience.
