The Simple Farm

I’m so thankful that our home is located in an ideal part of Scottsdale for our lifestyle. It’s nestled right up against the mountains with access to some great hiking and biking trails, but also nearby a few of the most delectable restaurants our city has to offer. In even more contrast, we have some hidden gems… boutiques, urban wineries and horse stables tucked away in residential areas that we often ride by on our bikes, but have never stopped in to see. The Simple Farm has always been one of those places on our list of “someday we should stop there” things and today one of my best girlfriends and I finally checked it out.

The Simple Farm is a lot like heaven in Scottsdale. Just three steps in as we walked past some raised gardens filled with chard, rhubarb and basil and through a charming front gate, we were greeted by the friendly and hospitable Lylah and Michael, owners and resident farmers, who welcomed us to their home and farm. Coffee and fresh baked breads and pastries from Grano De Vita lined the patio, and inside we found fresh veggies and of all kinds available for purchase in their market.

From fig trees to wildflowers, this urban farm is lush with vegetation and their is evidence of their ideas about fresh, natural, simple foods everywhere we looked.
