It all goes back 167 years ago to 1852, when N.B. and Mary Grover first settled on our farm and, like their ancestors in New England, planted apple trees. Two generations later, Henry and Evelyn Grover thought the growing orchard business needed a more formal name. With our farm being right on the migratory bird path due to its proximity to the Mississippi River, many ‘winged’ guests found a ‘haven’ in the apple trees. So, the name Winghaven Orchards was chosen. Though we no longer commercially grow apples (our next door neighbors, Ferguson’s Orchards, do an incredible job of that), the now 5th generation of the Grover Family is proud to honor our ancestors by using the name Winghaven Pizza Farm! Come visit us to add yourself to the history of the farm.
Meet The Team
greg roskos - Owner
Greg isn't a Grover, but his roots do run deep in this area, having grown up on his family's farm just north near Arcadia, WI. Winghaven Pizza Farm started as a way for him to express his passion for high-quality cooking which he discovered while helping his mother and grandmother in the kitchen growing up. Their memories live on through his recipes and through the family-focused dining experience offered at Winghaven. Greg also takes pride in sourcing and offering a wide variety of local beer, wine, and food options, which supports important small business culture around the coulee region.
