Have you heard of a pizza farm? If your family likes pizza, this is definitely something you will want to experience.
We have collected a handful of pizza farms in Minnesota and western Wisconsin that are less than 100 miles away. Most Pizza Farms ask that you bring no animals and that you pack out your own garbage. Bring a trash receptacle of some sort. Sometime guests also need to supply side dishes, non-alcoholic beverages, and all other picnicking utensils including plates, napkins and seating (blanket or lawn chairs).
