The Mortimer family will be cutting the ribbon to their new farm park at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at 12907 E. Highway 169 in Dewey.
The Prescott Chamber of Commerce, the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce, plus dignitaries will assist Gary and Sharla Mortimer with the ribbon-cutting event.
Farm friends from around the state have been asking for a place to bring their families year-round to escape the crazy fast paced world. They love the Mortimer Farms sweet corn and pumpkin festivals and Sharla Mortimer knew it would be perfect for birthday parties, family gatherings and corporate retreats also. Sharla Mortimer believes in making dreams come true.
The farm park will be opening on March 19. The event from 2 to 5 p.m. that day is free. The new farm park will have old-fashioned farm rides, a petting zoo, outdoor tables for picnics, fire pits for cooking s’mores, plus the perfect settings for picture taking. The farm can cater events or families can bring their own food.
An annual pass is only $10 per person for the whole year. For farm friends that only visit once and awhile the admittance fee is $3 per person, per day. Of course little kiddos 3 and younger are free.
The Mortimer family continues to expand the 300-acre farm in Dewey, making magic and memories happen for generations to come.
