Owner description: The Simple Farm is our home and farm. We are a working farm and know folks love to see how one operates. Therefore, we open our gates just one morning a week for a few hours. It's the best we can can with our very full farm schedule. Hope you can visit on a Thursday morning from 9-11:30 am. We have a lovely farm couture style Farm Shop with baskets of our our award winning goat milk caramels and often little bundles of fresh picked herbs and flowers. We also curate a small selection of hand made gifts by women. Keep in mind, we close our home/farm to the public sometime mid-June and reopen sometime mid-October. We grow for Farm Members - those that pay up front (often 8-10 weeks) for vegetables, fruit, herbs and sometimes fresh eggs. When we are able to harvest extra, those little extras will be available inside our farm shop. Best to arrive by 9 am for the selection. There are little tables and chairs in our Gathering Garden where you can enjoy something sweet from Pickett Fence Pastries and $3 cup of coffee. Often our little herd of Nubian dairy goats are hanging around and in spring time we always have a few little babies.

Wow! This place is amazing. My friend and I went to their thursday 9-1:00 farmer's market. It is a beautiful property in the middle of Scottsdale. It feels like an amazing oasis. Greeted by Tall Sunflowers, and veggies and flowers blooming in the desert. They have goats and chickens plus, the best part are the owners and helpers. A great place to visit to be inspired as to what can grow in the desert--especially in the summer. Don't miss it

The Simple Farm is three acres of animals, plants, and trees, sitting in the middle of suburbia. This is a working farm with many volunteers sharing in the delightful owners simple joys of self-sustainment. The on-premise Market (offering eggs, herbs, fruit, veggies, soap and more) is open to the public Thursday morning and Friday, late afternoon. Walking around the refreshing farm, one gets a sense of hearts in bloom. Events, classes and tours are available by appointment.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for your very kind review. I hope that you've come back to visit our farm since then as we were tired and made lots of beautiful changes.
