It’s October and it still feels a little too hot outside. But we are enjoying wonderfully cool mornings and evenings. Arizona Farm Bureau’s Fill Your Plate hopes you plan socially distanced outdoor family outings with Arizona farms in mind. You may already notice Fill Your Plate’s new “Visit A Farm” section, but we also updated the information below so you can find the nearest farm fall festival near you. Our agritainment economy in the Arizona agriculture sector is a $14 million contributor to our state’s economy.

Arizona farms you can visit vary, full of family-oriented fun, and give you a chance to teach your children about agriculture in a hands-on, interactive way. Whether the farm is up north or down south, you will find a variety of activities for the family during one of our famous pumpkin festivals. Enjoy the fall fun and the cooler weather, at least when it gets here!
