Food was excellent, perhaps a little over-priced. Definitely worth a trip to see the place. We would recommend it.

Took kids for a farm and locally sourced pizza experience. The pizza was marginal at best. Toppings were incredibly sparse, especially considering the $20 price tag. Photos online would make you think they would be plentiful...they weren't! Only redeeming feature was the fresh strawberries. I had such high hopes, but will not be back. Over priced and under whelming.

This place was recommended by friends and we went for the first time today. It was amazing!! Nearly all food produced locally or on sight, with fresh veggies from the greenhouse, locally sourced meats, and amazing fresh baked goods. French press coffee to start off the meal and a very creative menu. And the gelatto is exceptional!.
While waiting for food, browse the yarn, paintings, rugs, scarves, nearly all produced locally. The yarn is produced from sheep on the farm!
Dining here is an experience, well worth every dollar spent for this delicious meal

We try to stop by every time we visit the north woods. Everything is delicious, fresh, and local, from the wood fired pizza and gelato in summer to the lamb, eggs and lettuce they raise right there on the farm. They also make good strong coffee and have fun events, highly recommended!!

Almost everything they serve is produced right there on the farm. It doesn't get much better than that. Homemade gelato is amazing and even a small grocery area with farm fresh groceries. Great place to get whole unprocessed non GMO foods that are grown locally. Yay! Also good service and in a nice setting. A must visit if in the area.
