EnviroFarm Ranch/immediate donation

EnviroFarm started out as a five acre family farm in Queen Creek, Arizona for the purpose of the family having access to fresh eggs, poultry, lamb, goat, and fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden. We breed and raise Suffolk sheep for meat and wool, and also raise registerable boer meat goats. Other animals include rabbits, and poultry. From time to time a steer, turkeys and geese are raised as well depending on customer requests.







Over the years, friends, guests, and other members of the community asked us to provide them with products and experiences we have enjoyed over the years, and it is difficult to keep up with the demand without a few upgrades.









Completed Projects (partially funded by donations):

1. (done 8/14) Orchard fencing and gates to keep critters out of orchard - $1,800 (actual cost was $1,075)



2. (done 9/14) Roof for horse grooming and washing area that doubles as a slaughtering and processing area. $1,500 (actual cost was $1,500)
