Pizza Farm Agritoursim
Grant Award: $6,000

Carl and Julie are in the process of transitioning their current successful farming operation from being focused on crop production to producing value-added products and services.

They have upgraded infrastructure on the farm by building a professional wood fired pizza and are adding a handicapped accessible restroom and a small kitchen. They will offer Farm Stays (lodging on the farm) and will host farm tours and “Farm to Pizza” events, concentrating on growing fruit and vegetable crops directly related to pizza.

This new direction for the farm will add value to the crops they already grow to generate additional revenue, will expand their already successful business of hosting guests on the farm, and will create a unique destination experience for locals and tourists alike.
