“Something Different in Mesa AZ!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2011

I have been to many a farm visit in many states, and this one rates at the top!! I loved the 'school' before the tour. It was informative and kept small children and adults entertained and everyone learned something. A great place to visit and bring the kids if you are in the north east valley! Everyone was terrific!

“Educational, Fun and Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2011

We were on vacation visiting my sister and her little boy was going on a field trip to this farm. We thought what the heck and tagged along. I thought the price was a bit steep, but that was before we got there and experienced what you get for your money.
There were lots of little kids there on the day we went so the put us in two groups. One group went on the wagon ride and the other went to the petting area. Each child got a few handfulls of food to give to the sheep and goats. Then they all lined up for a piece of carrot to give to the horse. If they wanted, they could have another carrot to feed to the donkey. Then they all got to pet rabbits, brush the sheep/goats/horses/, and hold a rooster. There was a very gentle and friendly black lab running around with a ball that the children gladly threw for him. After about 30 minutes, we switched places and went on the wagon ride. It was very fun to see the whole farm. The guide was funny and informative. He showed the children where they go for milking, where the cows who are about ready to have babies are kept and where they get showers. He answered all the questions asked by the children and the parents.
After we got off the ride, we got to visit the Milk Bar, where they had milk produced there on the farm with a variety of mix-in flavors. In our little group we got some Strawberry, Chocolate and "Moo" (blue) Berry. Every flavor was yummy and the kids thought it was so cool. Then we got ice cream, also produced there at the farm. They had a choice of chocolate or strawberry topping. It was creamy and wonderful.
I'd say in all this was well worth the money. The kids had a blast and we got some ice cream and milk on a warm day. The cost of the tour was $7.50 and there is also a cute little gift shop. You can buy farm merchandise in the shop, as well as eggs, cheese, salsa, milk and ice cream. For the mom's who will ask this question, YES they do offer port-a-potty facilities and have lots of hand sanitizer for your use.

“I absolutely LOVE this place and I can't...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2010

I absolutely LOVE this place and I can't wait to visit again next year. I am an "LA" girl and I have to admit i'm not much of a farm type. But this trip to the Superstition Farm changed my views. It was not only a fun trip where you get to pet the animals, it was also very educational and not in a boring way. The staff was soooo accomodating and they gave every person there full attention. And their ice cream and milk bar is good too! I definitely reccomend this place for people of all ages. Even if you "think" you hate farms!

“Mooooo-licious! Great down-home hospitality and fun loving hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2010

After our 100+ mile motorcycle ride with friends and family, we found ourselves kicking back with the gracious owners Allison and Jason with some cold drinks and a beautiful sunset... not to mention their 2000 dairy cows and farm friends (a goat or two, some sheep, and some great chickens...all resuce.) And I bet you are thinkin' "how can that be great after a long ride on the road?"...well...once you take a seat on the back porch, grab a cold-frosty-beverage, chat face-to-face with the local chef (thanks Chef Lou) at thier full service outdoor "cowboy-style" setting (as owner, Jason proudly calls it), smelling the scents of all the local fresh basil, fennel, spices, and assorted produce cooking just feet away.... you can't help but to relax and enjoy the most classy "cowboy-style" experience hosted by the most honest (and frankly, hands-down funniest farm owner we have ever met....yeah, you, Jason)...it happens...this place is truly amazing. For all of us in our 30's and 40's it was refreshing, educational, and fun... thanks Allison for the great hospitality.
We will DEFINITELY be coming back soon with lots more friends.... see you on the porch!
