Sharla Mortimer says:  “The Pumpkins are ready!  Families love to bring their children to the farm where they can pick their pumpkin straight from the vine!  It is so much fun to see the kids run into the field ready to choose and take home their very own pumpkin!  These are the memories that last forever!”

 

Since the Mortimer’s re-opened the farm in March 2011 they have offered sweet corn, fresh vegetables, school field trips, family activities and other events!  The community response has been fantastic with many commenting on how they remember the past, when it was Young’s Farm, and how excited they are to bring their family to Mortimer Family Farms.

  1. Kathleen Johnson says:

    Hello! I am so grateful to the Mortimer Family for Bringing into Fruition This Beautiful Farm in Dewey. You have brought back such a wonderful asset to the community! I am writing because I read about the difficulties the town of prescott valley was giving you over permits etc… I have to say I thought this was so frustrating. When something like your farm, that is such a benefit to our community, and efforts to get it back on board are clearly evident, I believe there should be more assistance from officials to help you bring everything up to compliance, and not to hinder your positive efforts.
    Have the bumps cleared from the road, and does it look like the Mortimer Farm will be able to continue to blossom? Thank You!
    Sincerely,

    Kathleen Johnson
