Scattered across the sunny Wisconsin countryside, you’ll find a handful of farms that transform into gourmet pizzerias during the summer months. These farms have found a new way to harness their resources by harvesting fresh, local ingredients to create delicious pizzas that can be enjoyed right on the farm. Invite your family and friends for a summer picnic on one of Wisconsin’s pizza farms!

Editor’s note: One of the region’s most famous pizza farms, A to Z Produce & Bakery near Stockholm, has no plans to hold its weekly pizza evenings in 2021. We hope for next year. The website from A to Z says: “Pizza is in a state of reinvention.”
