Midwestern farms converting themselves into gourmet pizza parlors across the state ... we love to see it. Farms have found a new way to use their resources by harvesting fresh, homegrown ingredients to craft mouth-watering pizzas that can be enjoyed right there on the farm. Round up your family and friends for a summer picnic on one of Wisconsin’s pizza farms! The quality of the ingredients and tastiness of the pizza is well worth a short drive, so start making plans now. And if pizza isn’t your thing, here’s a special shout out to Together Farms and their popular Burger Nights! Don’t like burgers or pizza? Sorry, we can’t help ya.


A to Z Produce and Bakery

N2956 Anker Lane, Stockholm • (715) 448-4802 • • This weekly pizza destination is open Tuesdays from 4:30-8pm during the summer. Drivers arrive by car or even horseback. The later you arrive in the season, the longer the wait is (it can be up to an hour), but the pie is worth it. If you’re in a rush, they can fix you one to go. Also a CSA farm. You’re welcome to bring your own snacks and games, explore the farm, or purchase beer while you wait.
