Willcox is well known for it's u-pick and farm fresh produce!
One of my favorite things to do is act like a tourist and hang out at Apple Annie's Orchard or Produce stands! The produce is locally grown, and tastes wonderful! There are games and rides for the kids, and a fun farm attitude! Here is a list of their July festivals. You don't want to miss the peach ice cream, it's the "cream of the crop"!
