root the wild tomato pizza here in fish creek with the better half of the young cover family sarah and her husband bread are owners and chefs here at the wild tomato pizza is it's like a canvas for creativity it's not necessarily about you know sticking with traditional pizzas for us it's about taking a lot of the things we've learned and put it on a canvas and just bringing food down to a really casual level I think it's about community and being a part of your community and giving back to your community and we love Wisconsin it's where we were born and spent a lot of time in Door County we try to source as many local ingredients as possible we get our chickens from Wildwood farms in sister bay and a lot of our produce as well and we get our beef locally from narrow gate farms in sister Bay Area so you think this is at render this is long-lasting that you know the emphasis on local foods the healthier boobs the foods that we know where where it's coming from the trailer I think this is last I think it's a lifestyle change people are definitely more aware of what they're eating these days but now it seems to be when people are vacationing and going out to eat they're looking for healthier choices so and they want to know where their food comes from it's always been kind of part of everything I've done it no matter where I've been there's always been Pizza involved somewhere we're going to start with this fresh tomato sauce we have a lot of herbs from the garden in here and a lot of garlic it's been fantastic to be able to just run out side of the kitchen and grab some yeah absolutely i mean there's nothing like I mean that's about as fresh as you can get right there yeah absolutely and these little tomatoes are right from that garden same with these

hover somewhere around 50 as we try and mimic mother nature we try and mimic the great Buffalo hurts okay we Mobb on the soil and then we move and we give it a long rest period by doing that cattle are harvesting their own feed they're also spreading their own manure so I've eliminated two pieces of equipment and the fossil fuels as well and we always let that grass regrow so that we're never grazing down we're never disturbing the soil we're committed to that soil web life we're trying to mimic nature as much as possible attain ability that's the sustainability part of it yep is to build
