Pizza Farms


















The Pizza Farm was started by Darren Schmall, The Pizza Farmer
(559) 363-5433
pizzafarmer@cobbranch.com Wellington, Colorado
He helps farmers create a destination farm to teach children and the public about where their food comes from.



The Pizza Farm is a fun and educational opportunity
that is open throughout the spring and summer for all ages. The Pizza Farm is a circular garden that is divided into eight pie-shaped "slices" (like a giant pizza) and grows or grazes all the ingredients needed to make a farm fresh pizza! Best of all, visitors are educated and interactive with how the farm grows wheat for the crust, tomatoes for the sauce, dairy cows that give milk to make cheese, pigs for pepperoni, and much more.

This is a pretty neat design. Sizable to any space. It looks a lot neater than I would expect from a working farm when you start moving paddocks around. I can see the rotation over years working to build the soil and integrate the resources from animals and plants. I like my pizza in squares. Dan

Tour the only farm in the San Joaquin Valley that actually grows pizza. Our Award Winning farm is located at the beautiful and historic Cobb Ranch on Highway 41, across from Children’s Hospital. Bring your students and enjoy a guided tour of the Pizza Farm, a visit with our farm animals, and a wagon ride around the ranch.

In addition, each class plants their own “mini pizza farm,” which students take back to school as an on-going lesson in farming. Culminate your farm experience with a pizza lunch in the shade of the orchard. Guaranteed to the most fun, educational, and tasty farm field trip in the valley.

R Acres has a Pizza Farm also.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
