We are a family owned and operated farm situated between the Dragoon Mountain Range and the Chiricahua Mountains in Willcox, Arizona. We are committed to sustainable agriculture and producing safe farm products from our family's table to yours.
My wife and I both grew up farming. We both left the farm after high school graduation to attend college, but farming never left either of us. While in college, I worked at a student research assistant in both Crop Science & Plant Pathology. After finishing school, I went to work as an agricultural research scientist for a large agricultural company. My career took me further from agriculture, and the landscape of a large city replaced the peaceful surroundings of the farm. Finally, we had enough, and we decided to return to the land. Now we have a unique opportunity to build the special farm we have always dreamt.
Our Business Model for the Farm:
✫ Produce a quality product that is healthy and nutritious
✫ Adopt sustainable farming practices
✫ Conserve natural resources
✫ Embrace organic farming & free-range livestock
✫ Welcome the Farm to Table movement
We Plan to offer our products:
• Direct to consumer via farmer's markets or delivery
• Pearce, Tucson, Bisbee, Benson, etc.
• Restaurants that embrace Farm to Table menus

❝ Ducks are like little packages of love waddling around. They are my joys and passion in life. My goal is to allow everyone the opportunity at self sustainability with our backyard ducks and fresh products. I couldn't imagine my life without my ducks and I know they can make that same difference for someone else out there.
