Each week on This Bites, dining critic Ann Christenson from Milwaukee Magazine and Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie Tarik Moody dig into the city’s culinary and restaurant culture to help you find new spots, old favorites and the best ingestibles around Milwaukee.

Just a few weeks ago, we led off an episode with a roundup Ann put together for the magazine that highlighted a few of the best farm dinners in Wisconsin. Apparently, that wasn’t enough for my pod partner, because she went back for seconds to take a closer look at a place that didn’t make her first list: Stone Bank Farm.

There’s a reason why Stone Bank didn’t land among the farm-dinner crowd. The Lake Country location is a market in addition to being a working farm, selling its own produce along with products from other farms located within a one-hour radius. Like typical grocery stores, it also offers grab-and-go items that customers can enjoy on a picnic table right outside.

The whole thing is pretty darn charming and well worth talking about at the top of this week’s episode. As usual, you’ll also get a big helping of what else is happening around the area:

After getting through all of that, Ann and I could use a bit of a breather. So This Bites will take a break for a couple weeks while we refill our tanks and get out there to actually eat at some of these places so we can report back when we return. In the meantime, feel free to drop a rating or review wherever you listen, and share us on socials to help keep Milwaukee’s longest-running culinary podcast going even longer. Thanks.
