Gilbert Summer Activities: Visit Singh Farms

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty East Valley Equal Housing Opportunity

Visit Sangh Farms. Unless it involves a body of water, outdoor summer activities in Gilbert and other Phoenix valley cities are best done early in theSangh Farms in Scottsdale AZ morning in a place with lots of shade. Sangh Farms is such a place. Under a canopy of shade from the acres of trees the temperature last Saturday morning when I was there seemed to drop 20 degrees as I entered and Sangh Farms is open every Saturday morning from 8AM until 1. Located on the east side of the 101 at Thomas, it is an oasis in the desert filled with vegetable plants and flowering trees and shrubs.  It is more than a farmers market. It is more than a place to get lunch made with freshly harvested ingredients. It is more than a bakery with Artisan bread being baked in an earthen oven. It is also an opportunity to stroll through a working farm with acres of vegetable plants, flowers and conversation areas nestled under the trees. Last Saturday there were holly hocks blooming everywhere and the purple blooms of the artichokes were gorgeous. Admission is free and my lunch of roasted corn, fresh salad and freshly baked focaccia bread was $5.00.

Keep your eyes open for the owner, Ken Singh, who is always available to share his knowledge of growing things here in the desert. Even the people working in the gardens are incredibly friendly answering questions and offering information. Just as with any working farm, Sangh Farms isn't just for plants. There is a variety of farm animals including turkeys, chickens, and peacocks. The environment is serene and along the paths you will find interesting relics of days gone by. And don't forget that final stop at the log cabin store on your way out. Jam, honey, humus, turkey eggs, pastries, the list goes on and on. In case all this growing gives you inspiration to try your own green thumb, you can purchase Ken Sangh's blend of compost by the bag or truckload.
