While there is one individual disappointed by the farm, they are mistaken in many respects. The farm has hours for purchasing certain items, such as those in the freezer and fridge, to include goat milks, cheeses and caramels (it is a goat farm after all), and they offer meats - beef, chicken and lamb from other farms, eggs, breads, butters...

My first (and last) visit was very underwhelming. Not one person initiated contact. No vegetables seemed to be available for sale. The entire place was a bit scruffy. I arrived on Thursday April 24th, 2014 around 11am so maybe that is why there was nothing to purchase aside from a few herbs and a basket of potatoes. Goat cheeses and... More

We are so sorry that your first and only visit to our farm was disappointing. At that time, we would harvest our fresh herbs and vegetables for the morning market. Unlike a grocery story, we do not have an ongoing supply. And, it's true - most times there would not be much left at the close of our market -... More

I love the fact that the Simple Farm is open to the public every Thursday from 8:30 to 12:30. We have driven by this location for the past 25 years and had no idea there was anything like the Simple Farm there. The Simple Farm would probably be inundated if there was a prominent sign. There is ample parking and... More

Hi there.... I so appreciate your kind review of our farm...it always means so much. I do have one little itsy bitsy problem. The cute picture you posted 3 years ago that says our days/times open is no longer accurate. And, unfortunately, people arrive at the farm on a Saturday thinking that we are open. Is there anyway you'd be... More

I have driven by the Simple Farm for years and had never stopped in. I was pleasantly surprised. It is very charming and an interesting place to visit. A great place to take kids. They have goats that provide quite a show. They also supply the milk for the amazing goat cheese caramels. Best I've ever had. If you are... More

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... More

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... More
