Mortimer Family Farms, a popular Prescott area attraction formerly known as Young's Farm is bringing back the rich farming history of Dewey-Humboldt.
Made famous for our Sweet Summer Corn, we also grow a variety of other seasonal vegetables on our 300 acre farm made available in our Farm Store. Our onsite nursery also has trees, shrubs, flowers, landscape materials and gardening supplies available for all your landscaping needs.

A Day with the FFA!
Gilbert High School FFA Farm Tour 2011
Walking the fields this morning with the FFA (Future Farmers of America) from Gilbert High Ag Center I was excited to see their enthusiasm and excitement about farming. We had a wonderful discussion of their plans for the future and how they will be a part of all our futures...Providing food for our tables. We discussed how the average age of American Farmers keep increasing and we are in desperate need of young farmers and ranchers to continue food production in America. I hope they will take the challenge and find a way they can be involved in American Agriculture now and for many years in the future!
Thanks to the FFA and 4H organizations for all they do to encourage and educate young people of the benefits and challenges in American Agriculture.
