The Blue Goose Ice Cream and Pizza Parlor

Update: We’re sorry to say that the Blue Goose closed in May of 2023. There’s lots of other great lodging nearby though, visit our Dining in Wilton and Nearby post!

The Kickapoo Valley is blessed with many great eating establishments.  One of our favorite’s for pizza and ice cream is the Blue Goose Ice Cream and Pizza Parlor.   Located about 12 miles from Amil’s Inn, it takes approximately 20 minutes driving through some of the most beautiful countryside of the upper Kickapoo Valley and Northern Driftless Wisconsin Area.

Once you arrive you will be greeted by Gail and Bill Thomas who remodeled the barn on their property into “The Blue Goose”.  You will also be greeted by many farm animals that live on the property as well.

You may choose from a variety of pizzas such as Hog Heaven, The Giant German, The Super Blue Goose and a dozen or so more varieties.  If you still have room, they serve specialty sundaes, ice cream cones, malts and shakes.  They feature Cedar Crest ice cream fresh from the processing plant in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.

After dinner you may enjoy Ma’s & Pa’s Toy Shed where a variety of childhood toys live.  A vast amount of dolls, trains, dollhouses and trucks are also on display along with Elvis and Santa items.  There is a small admission of: Adults–$3.00; Students–$1.50; Children under 6—Free (with a parent).  New this year is the Haymow Flea Market located in the old loft of the remodeled barn.

Hours of operation are:  Thursday- Saturday, 12:00-8:00 P.M.; Sunday, 12:00-6:00 P.M.  The Blue Goose is located at S2106 24 Valley Road (North of County Road P), La Farge WI  54639.  It is highly recommended to call ahead for a reservation especially if a party of 6 or more (608) 625-4335.  For more information visit their website at

After spending the day riding the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail, canoeing the Kickapoo River or Amish shopping, the Blue Goose Ice Cream & Pizza Parlor will fill any appetite that was created
