Tucked in the countryside where Kiel and New Holstein meet, Grassway Organics Farm & Farm Store welcomes families every Friday for an evening of homemade pizza and down-home music entertainment.
We had the pleasure of first stumbling across Grassway Organics at the Elkhart LakeFarmer & Artesian Market, where my husband couldn't resist their homemade Ghost Pepper Pepperoni (yikes! waaaay too hot for me but perfect for him!).
Heading out to their farm along the country highway, we found cars already parked inside their fenced pasture.
Picnic tables were set up alongside their Farm Store, their wood-fire oven ready for pizza orders, and twinkling lights hung up in their barn as a backdrop to the evening's performance from children's performer, Tom Pease.
The pizza is made to order and comes piping hot delivered to your picnic table or blanket in the grass.
this pizza was among the best we've
Whole-wheat homemade crust, topped with fresh, organic cheese and vegetables from nearby Park Ridge Organic Farmand organic meat straight from Grassway Organics - yum!
Throw in a local brew for dad, apple juice for the kids, and organic root beer or ginger ale as a special treat, and your meal is complete.
Kids can roam and run free outside the barn, and as we munched away, Tom Pease got kids and grown-ups alike groovin' to his infectious tunes.
His whimsical lyrics range from silly, to heartfelt, to made-up-on-the-spot, all wrapped in stick-in-your-head melodies. He had us all dancing and clapping, wiggling and giggling, jumping and high-fiving.
My youngest must have felt the music really move him - he inched closer to Tom as he played, eventually wrapping his tiny arms around him in a spontaneous hug!
Families, couples, grandparents, and kids of all ages meandered and mingled
throughout the evening,
enjoying the breeze and the glow
of the evening sun.
Pizza on the Farmis a great way to celebrate a country evening with the family, and is an easy highway drive from most places.
Come out and experience the delicious food and entertainment for yourself! Entertainment varies each week, as do specialty pizzas on the menu.
Every Friday evening, 4:30 - 8:00pm , May - October
