Found on Wikipedia: Pizza Farms

>> Wednesday, December 8, 2010


From Wikipedia:

A pizza farm is an educational visitor attraction consisting of a small farm on a circular region of land partitioned into plots shaped like pizza wedges. The farm's segments produce ingredients that can be used in pizza, such as wheat for the crust, tomatoes or herbs, pork for pepperoni, dairy cows for cheese, and even trees for pizza oven firewood. Certain farms may even have access to coal or natural gas deposits that can be used as alternative pizza oven heating fuels. Many of the newer pizza farms are experimenting with alternative energy, such as installing wind turbines in the fields, to be more green. According to a 2005 article in USA Today, there are several such farms in the United States.

I've seen something similar done with pies(http://www.pieranch.org/) and I think it's a great idea.

By the way, I recently read Something Rotten and I LOVED it. I'm on a big YA reading streak at the moment and it was one of the funniest/cleverest I've seen in that genre.

This calls for a pizza garden in the Spring, methinks.

Or a cake garden? Tiny patches of wheat, a chicken coop, sugarcane... Okay, the pizza garden sounds more feasible.
