Tips for First Time Pizza Farm Visitors
If you’re planning to visit a pizza farm for the first time either with your friends or with kids, there are a few things to keep in mind to make the most of your outing. Here are some tips to help you prepare:
Bring Your Own Furnishings
Most pizza farms don’t provide seating or tables, so you’ll need to bring your own. Consider bringing a blanket, chairs, or a card table to make your picnic more comfortable. Keep in mind that you’ll have to carry these items from the parking lot to the seating area and back.
Pack Your Own Supplies
In addition to bringing your own furnishings, you’ll also need to pack your own side dishes, beverages, and utensils, if you so desire to have a bit more than just pizza. Also, not every pizza farm listed offers gluten-free options, so if that’s your jam, plan for that, too.
Make sure to bring plates, napkins, cups, and a garbage receptacle. Keep in mind that most pizza farms don’t have trash cans on site, so you’ll need to take your garbage with you when you leave. Leave no trace, people!
Leave Your Pets at Home
Most pizza farms have their own animals on site, so they ask that visitors don’t bring their own pets. Make sure to check the farm’s policies before you go.
Supervise Your Kids
Pizza farms are often working farms, so it’s important to supervise your kids at all times. Keep younger children close and make sure they don’t wander into areas that are off-limits.
Dress for Mess
A lot of pizza farms can be muddy and dusty, so make sure you and your kids wear clothes that can get dirty. Also, keep in mind that bathroom facilities are often portable and may not be very clean.
Check the Farm’s Website or Facebook Page!
Most importantly, before you head out to a pizza farm, make sure to check the farm’s website or Facebook/Instagram page for any updates or changes. Call them directly if there are any questions. You don’t want to be disappointed if the farm is closed or the pizza night is canceled! And don’t blame us.
By following these tips, you can enjoy a fun and memorable outing at a pizza farm with your family and friends and fellow hashtag pizza lovers.
How to Start Your Own Pizza Farm
If you’re inspired by our homemade pizza blog and the pizza farms you’ve visited and want to start your own, here are some tips to get you started:
Choose a Farm-y Location
The first step in starting a pizza farm is to find a suitable location. Look for a piece of land that is large enough to accommodate a huge garden and outdoor seating area. Ideally, the land should have good soil, access to water, and be located in a rural area.
Plan Your Pizza Garden
Once you have a location, it’s time to plan your pizza garden. Decide what types of vegetables and herbs you want to grow and how much space you’ll need. Consider using organic and heirloom seeds to produce high-quality ingredients for your pizzas.
Build a Wood-Fired Oven
A wood-fired oven (or multiple ones for that matter) is a must-have for any pizza farm. You can build your own oven using materials like bricks, clay, and sand. Alternatively, you can purchase a pre-made high-end pizza oven from a supplier. We recommend creating your own DIY brick pizza oven that’s big enough for many pizzas at a time.
Create an Outdoor Seating Area
To create a welcoming atmosphere for your customers, you’ll need to create an outdoor seating area. This can be as simple as a picnic table or as elaborate as a covered pavilion. Make sure to provide ample shade and comfortable seating for your guests. If you’re just starting out, though, blankets on the grass works for many people, too!
Market Your Pizza Farm
Finally, you’ll need to market your pizza farm to attract customers. Consider creating a website and social media accounts to promote your farm and menu. You can also partner with local restaurants and farmers’ markets to reach a wider audience. If you need help with websites or digital marketing, feel free to contact us.
Starting a pizza farm requires hard work and dedication, but the rewards are worth it. With fresh ingredients, a wood-fired oven, and a welcoming atmosphere, your pizza farm can become a popular destination for foodies and families alike. And please tell us about it so we can visit and feature it on our blog.
