Peach Blossoms At Schnepf Farms

Peach Blossoms At Schnepf Farms

If you want to get out of Phoenix for a day and do some pretty unique activities, head on south to Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek. While I was visiting friends in Arizona, they suggested we take the hour drive down, and I’m so glad we did. There was a lot more to the farm than I thought there would be and it was a LOT bigger than I originally thought.

 

Let me start off by saying, it’s more than just a farm. That’s what it began as in 1941, but it has grown and developed a lot since then. Besides the U-Pick organic garden full of fresh veggies ($1.50 per pound), they also have guided hayrides (given by the owner himself!), train rides, a museum, petting zoo, and a delicious bakery (they have fudge!). They have four main events throughout the year, one of which is the Peach Blossom Celebration.

My friends and I did some exploring around the grounds before we took our hayride tour. I hadn’t been on a hayride since I was a kid, so I was already pretty excited about that. I really liked the fact that the tour was given by Mark, the owner of the farm. How many owners of huge establishments do you actually see out and about and working with the rest of their employees? Not many. It goes to show the kind of environment they’ve created there at Schnepf’s.

During our tour, we were taken to one of the areas where the peach trees were blooming. They were so pretty! They didn’t have much of a smell, but it was incredible to see the rows and rows of flowering trees.

I highly recommend going to the Schnepf farms. And the best thing is, you don’t have to wait to go to one of their main events. You can go on any weekend for fun activities with the family or on a date. And make sure to get some fudge! 😉
