Small/medium scale family operated, organic vegetable farm located in a scenic area of S.E. Arizona. We have been growing healthy food for people since the 1970's. We sell our produce and value added products (salsa's, jams, jellies, etc.) directly to the public via our u-pick operation as well as at local farmers markets. When scheduling permits we also conduct educational workshops and events geared towards teaching sustainable living practices.

Our farm is located in the heart of what once was the "Wild West" of the United States. Not so long ago the much feared Apachie Indian Nation ran free on these lands and caused much trouble to the encroaching Europeans. Bandits nearly had a free hand here to do their dirty deeds and the most famous cowboy gun fight in American history (The OK Corral Gun Fight) took place just a few miles away from our farm in Tombstone. Our area is full of such history and we would love to share this history with our visiting workers by taking you on guided trips of our area and introducing you to some amazing local people.

Our night sky is world class for stare gazing and the full moons here will blow you away. Arizona is a very diverse place with high mountain wilderness area's, amazing rock formations, rivers, lakes and yes of course, deserts!

Work schedule is a minimum of 5 hours per day, 5 days per week in exchange for comfortable private living quarters,use of laundry, WiFi, library and large screen t.v. area and will always have plenty of nutricious food available.
The guest quarters all have refrigeration cooling units for summer time use.
Work will include planting and harvesting of crops, weeding and field maintenance, cleaning common areas, working at farmers market booths and select other projects.
