Pinal County: Queen Creek

With a deep-rooted history of farming and agriculture, Queen Creek offers small town charm with modern amenities, featuring a number of unique “agritainment” destination venues.

Family-owned and operated, the Queen Creek Olive Mill is Arizona’s only working olive farm. Over 7,000 olive trees are grown sustainably, and olives are pressed to produce high-quality extra virgin olive oil. The mill offers hourly classes, daily tours and an expansive retail store, along with a Tuscan-inspired eatery. 

The nearby Schnepf Farms is another family-owned working farm that offers tours, amusement rides, a U-Pick organic garden with a wide array of fruits and vegetables and a farm-fresh bakery, along with a full schedule of seasonal festivals, concerts and special events. And it’s available for weddings and special events. 

Hayden Flour Mills at Sossaman Farms is yet another family-owned operation. Owners are dedicated to providing stone-ground artisan always fresh, never bleached or enriched flours from ancient heritage grains, using sustainable methods from seed to table. Wheat has been growing here for over 100 years. Tours, classes, celebrations and special dinners are available.

Queen Creek Town Center offers a wide variety of shopping and dining options with an array of unique eateries and traditional restaurants. Stroll down Ellsworth Road and relax at Picket Post Square in the heart of the community.

Walk, bike or ride horses along the expansive trail system running along Queen Creek and Sonoqui Wash. The 48-acre Mansel Carter Oasis Park offers an inclusive playground, ship-wreck-themed splash pad, 5-acre community fishing lake, and sports courts and fields. The Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Center features equestrian events, car show and more.
