If you think New York and Chicago are the only pizza hubs, it might be time for you and your family’s taste buds to take a trip to Wisconsin. Pizza farms are a growing trend in the food and agriculture scene, and for good reason. With millions of acres of farmland, Wisconsin produces enough dairy, meat and fresh farm goods to create the most delectable pizzas.

This recent trend of converting farms to pizza parlors isn’t going away any time soon, so you might as well pull up a chair.

The Stone Barn – Nelson

Consider this rustic barn a one-stop-shop for tasty eats. The Stone Barn in Nelson features authentic Italian pizzas made fresh daily with hand-rolled crusts and organic local herbs to flavor the meats and cheeses. Your kids will love watching the wood-fired brick oven, and you’ll love the assortment of wine and beer. Don’t miss the included antique store, and stop by the Nelson Cheese Factory after for an ice cream cone.

Suncrest Gardens Farm – Cochrane

It doesn’t get more picturesque or family friendly than this. Suncrest Gardens Farm is a local gem and oasis for you to enjoy lush flower and vegetable gardens, barnyard animals, yard games and a playground. The wood-fired pizzas cook in less than two minutes and are available to take home or enjoy picnic-style in the garden. Toppings are seasonal, including organic meats, cheeses and vegetables.

AtoZ Produce and Bakery – Stockholm

Tuesday is the new Friday, or so it seems at AtoZ Produce and Bakery in Stockholm. You’ll love the simple family atmosphere of AtoZ. It’s no-nonsense, open Tuesday nights, offers beer and wine, and functions like a state park – pack it in, pack it out. Everything you bring must leave with you. All pizza ingredients are sourced locally, and the brick oven sourdough bread can’t be beat. Bring blankets!

Stoney Acres Farm – Athens

Share an authentic organic experience with your family as you enjoy the beautiful outdoors and all its flavors. Stoney Acres Farm offers simple seasonal pizzas, a small farmers market and seasonal sweets such as homemade pie. Pizzas are made with farm ingredients such as organic whole spring wheat, vegetables, meats and artisan cheeses. You’re only a half hour from Wausau, so gear up after for hiking at Rib Mountain State Park or rafting at Whitewater Park.

Lovetree Farmstead Cheese – Grantsburg

Don’t let the name fool you: This place serves far more than cheese. "Pizza by the Pond" on Sundays offers organic, homegrown veggies, cave-aged cheese, cave-aged dough and a lot of flavor. Since 1986, Lovetree has scooped up awards, including "Food Artisan of the Year" by the Food Network. Try the Trade Lake Cedar, a raw sheep milk cheese aged on cedar boughs in a cave. For a food-loving family, this is a bucket list item.
