Schnepf Farms

24810 S. Rittenhouse Road Queen Creek, AZ 85242 | Queen Creek | 480-987-3100

Location Description:

Schnepf Farms is a wonderful 70-year-old farm in Queen Creek, where the organic peaches are there for the picking (for a price), and so much more. This hardworking family has a lot on its plate, running a country store and bakery, working a seven-acre vegetable "patch," giving grand tours, looking after a campsite with 25 full hookups for the motor-home set, and hosting weddings, birthday parties for the little ones, and other big-time life events. Even Muhammad Ali has checked things out on the farm — we hear he had a great time. But it's those peaches that pull us back year after year, basket after basket, bite after bite. Sweet!
