Sossaman Farms


Living in Queen Creek is perfect for myself, my family and my business. We are close to everything, but not right in in the hustle and bustle experienced in the city of Phoenix. Since 1919, the Queen Creek farm has grown alfalfa, barley, wheat, corn and other crops successfully. I am the fourth generation to own the farm and look forward to the years to come as the PHX East Valley region continues to grow and prosper.  Steve Sossaman, Owner

Schnepf Farms


We love the PHX East Valley and wouldn’t want to put down roots anywhere else but Queen Creek since the farm was established here back in 1941.I have had opportunities to take the farm elsewhere but have never pursued the opportunity because the convenience and quality of life here is incomparable to any other place. The PHX East Valley has a lot to offer including restaurants, shops, recreational activities, performing arts, etc. To me, it’s a great area to live, work and play.Mark Schnepf, Owner
