Never in a million years did I think I’d find myself glamping in Arizona on a peach farm, but I did it, and you can too – at Schnepf Farms in Queens Creek, just outside Mesa.
Schnepf Farms has a super cool collection of renovated and uniquely decorated vintage Airstream trailers for guests to stay in on their farm, and as part of a Mesa, AZ press trip, I found myself opening the door of a 1948 “Spartan Manor” Airstream to see a luxuriously outfitted and cozy trailer with everything I could possibly need while camping… I mean glamping in Arizona.
I love being outdoors, but I have no desire to sleep outdoors, so luxury camping inside a glamping trailer with a big comfy bed, a shower, toilet, fridge, microwave, TV, heat, A/C and electricity is exactly what the good doctor ordered.
The glamping trailers are all refurbished uniquely so each one offers an entirely different experience. Since the trailers are all parked in a court, it would be a great place to get together with friends or have a family reunion.
My favorite perk of staying at The Cozy Peach was “trailer service” – breakfast delivered right to the door of your trailer in the morning!
And breakfast was delicious!
Glamping at Schnepf Farms gives you the chance to participate in all the farm activities too, and believe me, there’s a lot to explore.
The biggest events of the year are the Peach Blossom Celebration in the Spring and the Pumpkin and Chili Party in the Fall. I happened to be there when the peach trees were starting to bloom. I can only imagine how sweet and juicy the peaches will be when ready. (Peach season is February through June.)
By the way, if you want Schnepf Farms’ fresh peaches, you can only get them on the farm. They sell out every year!
One fun farm activity is pick your own fresh flowers or veggies from the certified organic fields. There’s always something ready for picking on the farm! Pay by weight for produce and by the stem for flowers. Sunflowers and lavender are especially popular at Schnepf Farms.
Keep an eye open for special lunches where you pick your veggies and learn how to cook them too. It’s a great way to get familiar with things like turnips, beets and collards.
Guests can also hop on bikes and cruise around the farm at their leisure. One fun hideaway is a secret library in the pine tree forest with Adirondack chairs, books and a hammock.
There’s also a neat little Schnepf Farms family museum right across from the u-pick fields.
And if photo ops are your thing, there’s a neat old truck and vintage carousel (the oldest in Arizona) on the property.
If you’re looking for delicious baked goods and treats, be sure to visit the Farm Fresh Cafe and Bakery. I tried peach pie, peach cinnamon bread and peach fudge. Oh, so good.
For family fun, there are vintage amusement rides, a train, petting zoo, and a corn maze and ice rink, seasonally. It’s no wonder Schnepf Farms is a popular place for families! (You may want to check out these Phoenix family resorts and the ghost town of Jerome Arizona as well.)
Glamping in Arizona on a peach farm sure sounds fun, doesn’t it? And pssst, future plans call for a luxury boutique hotel and treehouses.
