Pizzeria
Pleasant Grove Pizza Farm is located outside of Waseca, Minnesota. We serve 8 different varieties of homemade, handmade brick oven style pizzas topped with delicious locally sourced ingredients (when available). Pleasant Grove sits on 50 acres of prairie grassland, surrounded by beautiful oak trees and wildlife. We invite you to bring all of your picnic-style dining necessities to include seating, utensils, beverages, and your choice of dining surface while you take in the alluring views during dinner. We also encourage you to stroll along the nature trails through our natural prairie and oak-filled woods. On the off days the farm is not open to the public, we specialize in grooms dinners, ceremonies, receptions and corporate/company picnics.

Overly political as a business, and from a crowd stand point. I went there with my main gay peeps and felt judged by the business and crowd the entire time.

It was a beautiful day! We went at 1pm when they opened. We brought a blanket and there was plenty of room in the open field area. It was so fun to watch the families and people all have a great time. We had their BBQ special pizza and the blueberry and cream cheese one for dessert. Delicious! We played bags and explored the trails. It started to get more busy with more friend groups arriving as we were leaving around 5pm. Live music was going to be playing that night! Wonderful experience I can't wait to go back and try the pizza with honey on it!

An adorable little farm where you can spread out your socially distanced picnic blanket and enjoy delicious homemade pizza while watching the sun set and petting the goats. It’s an idyllic setting and a great way to support your local farmer!

My wife and I were Pizza Order #2 at the Pleasant Grove Pizza Farm just north of Waseca on a sunny and comfortably warm Thursday afternoon. We were both so impressed and pleased with the country charm, ambience, surroundings and food at the Pleasant Grove. The staff and owner – Nellie – were so incredibly friendly you want to hug them! During our short 20-minute wait for our pizzas, we enjoyed a glass of wine (bring your own!) out on their well-groomed and expansive lawn. Just off the main barn and kitchen is a small stage where we were entertained by a lovely 2-person folk band whose lead singer must be a descendant of Janis Joplin’s DNA Tree. Just off the lawn is a fenced-in area with a couple of very friendly animals (goat and donkey?) nestled adjacent to their very own vegetable and herb garden. There are a couple of hiking trails which whisper tranquility and only take 10-minutes to travers. Now…the food. One of our pizzas – the Lola – is a basil infused olive oil, tomato, basil, kalamata olives, garlic salt, fresh and shredded mozzarella which will satisfy your palette to no end. They should rename this pizza “The Fresh One” because it oozed Mother Nature and all things good. Did I mention the Lola was delicious? Our next gastronomic venture was the Pig + Pork a rich homemade tomato red sauce, sausage, pepperoni, green olives, shredded mozzarella. Although the toppings were a bit light, this pie was also quite tasty but just a bit under cooked. As we were leaving with fully bellies, the owner – Nellie – asked how we enjoyed it and wanted to ensure we’d be back. Nellie also volunteered if we required the wetting of our whistles, to simply go 1-mile up the road to the Half Pint Brewery and they’d fix us up. The Half Pint has some great craft beers and we took home a growler to boot! Make an afternoon/evening of food in an outdoor setting with a feel-good atmosphere.

We were a party of 6. So much fun. Open space. Expected a long wait for Pizza but we we surprised with how fast it was done and on our "table". Ambiance outdoors was great. Open air. Perfect for social distancing. Great get away experience, yet close enough to the Twin Cities.

Such a great place to just BE with family and friends. They really don't provide anything other than the open space and the pizza but that makes the experience easily tailored to you! Bring a glass of wine to just lounge in your lawn chair, bring cards and card table to spice it up a little, or bring a baseball or football to toss around as you wait for the pizza. Kids love the goats and donkey as well!

Highly recommend going to Pleasant Grove, especially if it is a nice day. They have it so well organized. The pizza is delicious. It is so relaxing sitting on the lawn, enjoying the pizza, listening to the music. I could have sat there for hours!

Emily and Bill"s Pleasant Grove Pizza Farm was the perfect destination for my first experience of dining at a pizza farm. Loved it! There is plenty of room for many families to be socially distanced while enjoying the farm feel. We took a peaceful walk on the trail through the prairie flowers after placing our order. Then savored the delicious brick oven pizza while listening to live music. Such a wonderful way to spend an evening with family (or friends)!!

It was our first time so was not sure what was acceptable to bring for outdoor games or sun protection. I would def bring a canopy next time. There is no shade in the open lawn. That said, we really enjoyed the music and had a nice time walking on the paths.
the staff was friendly and efficient. If you are coming from the Cities, follow a reliable GPS system. there are not a lot of signs to lead the way!

Love this pizza farm - the pizza was the best I've ever had! So fresh. At one point, we saw someone on the kitchen staff leave towards the garden, yank something (basil?) from the ground and brought it back to the kitchen - now THAT's farm-to-table! The staff were all fantastic and fun, the buying process was easy and awesome that they are able to take cards. Word to the wise: bring your own shade, it can get hot outside!

What a fun change of pace! You bring your own chairs, plates, utensils and beverages. The pizzas were excellent - they have "the usual" more basic pizzas and some more creative options. Or pizzas were excellent and they were ready much more quickly than we expected. There was good live music and plenty of room to spread out. We even brought some lawn games and played, as did others. A great outdoor eating option!
