An Inside Look at The East Valley’s Agritainment Scene

Best of Arizona

Agritainment (agriculture + entertainment) is booming in Arizona’s East Valley. The local businesses involved in agritainment offer Arizona residents & tourists authentic experiences and contribute to sustainable communities. We recently visited several of these businesses and are excited to tell you about them:


Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek is a local farm that offers several fun activities and events throughout the year. You can visit this farm to pick your own fruit & vegetables, go on a hayride tour, visit the country store & bakery, or attend one of their amazing annual events.

We visited Schnepf Farms during its Peach Festival and enjoyed delicious, peach pancakes out in the orchard. This family-owned farm has been designated as an “Arizona Treasure.


Right across the street from Schnepf Farms is Queen Creek Olive Mill, a family-owned business offering an agritainment experience. We love this business because they are a sustainable olive farm and mill that produces Arizona’s only extra virgin olive oil. You can visit for olive oil tastings, lunch and tours.
