TJ Farms Fresh and Local
“Hi! We’re Tonia and Jesus and we’d love to tell you all about our farm and the type of food that has nourished us and our family for years.
We grow pesticide-free vegetables on close to 3 acres in Waddell, Arizona. We grow everything you can think of like spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, kales, Asian greens, root veggies, you name it – all year round. Anything we can grow in this climate, we grow it. We’d love to see you at one of the farmers’ markets around town and invite you to join our CSA!”
Tonia started growing when she was young in a village in Mexico in Zacatecas. She remembers the corn, tomatillos, summer squash, winter squash and different varieties of beans grown near her home. Her family also raised pigs, chickens, cattle, donkeys and horses.
“It was the way people live in the village. We’d grab armfuls of amaranth greens and throw it to pigs. We had good clean water, and clean corrals,” recalls Tonia.
She always wanted to have her own farm and decided to jump into the farming business with a leap of faith.
