Maricopa County Food Systems Coalition Forum

to support and grow a food system in Maricopa County

Maricopa County Food Systems Coalition Forum is a social network

My husband and I own Arizona Hobby Farm in Gilbert which is an urban farm/homestead.  We have been growing a large portion of our family’s food and have raised 100% of our family’s meat and eggs for the past 4 years on our little piece of heaven in the middle of the city. We have also sold chicken and duck eggs, chicken meat, turkey meat, duck meat, fruit, veggies, and pecans that we have grown and raised to local customers in the area.  We’ve even had a successful farmstand right on our property!  We have found great joy in providing fresh, local food to our family, neighbors and our community.  Our dreams have grown bigger than our property can sustain and we have decided to relocate to the Missouri Ozarks where we can find more land and water, milder weather, and less restrictive small farm/homesteading laws.

However, it would give us great pleasure to know that our property would live on providing a sustainable lifestyle to another family or passionate urban farmer/homesteader.  Our property is right on Williams Field Rd in Gilbert halfway between Gilbert Rd and Lindsay Rd.  Here is the listing which includes 50 photos the house and property:
