|The Henderson Family Farm
(aka Lewis Hen House & Veggie Farm)
Thanks for Stopping By
|We are a Certified Naturally Grown Farm
in Casa Grande, Arizona
We are your basic hobby farm.
We bring as much produce as we can each week - and
when it's gone, it's gone.
Our regulars know that for best selection & availability
you must be there when the market opens.
We truly do appreciate everyone's business and
ask for your patience if there's a line ..
Our customers are the Best in the World
We currently sell only at the
Roadrunner Park Farmers Market
35th Street & Cactus
Saturdays - 7:30 till our produce is gone
|How Do We Grow you ask ?
(inquiring minds want to know)
Well, we never use pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides -
Our chickens are never given hormones or antibiotics -
We use horse & chicken manure, mulch, gypsum and other natural fertilizers
like fish emulsion.
Our veggies are hand-picked & washed
Tuesday thru Friday .. "stored cold" to
ensure they're the freshest, best tasting possible at the market ...
We gather eggs twice a day, they're washed and stored
at 40'F - and when stored cold, they're good for 5 weeks.
We grow seasonal fruits & vegetables & once in awhile, we may get
things from other farmers like apples or oranges ...

Last, but not least, but still very important, are our prices.
Over the years, we've made every attempt to keep our "organic" prices
low which normally mirror prices charged for
conventionally grown items in the supermarkets.
We cannot compete with Walmart, Costco, or Sam's Club nor do we want to.
This is not a hobby for us. We are in business to make money, but we are not in
the business of gouging our customers. We too are consumers, have a limited
budget, and suffered because of the economy.
Over the years, we have absorbed a lot of our cost increases
in an effort to keep our prices low.
But the reality is - we have a lot of farm expenses that add up very quickly.
So, if our prices change occasionally, we hope you'll understand
and consider that you're still getting a pretty good deal.
