By supporting the FarmBox program, weíre not only making our local economy stronger, but helping our community to be healthier, too. Itís a win-win for all involved. The produce is top-quality and is grown with sustainable, certified organic growing practices. Weíre happy to make it available and affordable here in Tempe.
"We're excited to announce House of Tricks as our latest partner in this new direct-to-consumer program. It just makes sense for both the farm and FarmBox member to avoid middlemen and price hikes, but the program is also better for the environment and for the local economy,î says Evan Storey, FarmBox program manager for Sunizona Farms. ìHouse of Tricks has also long supported these community-oriented causes, so it's only natural that we continue to collaborate.î
For as little as $22 per week, a box of organically grown fruits and vegetables is delivered for pick-up at Tricks on Tuesdays and Fridays. The selection is based on season and availability. An example of a typical FarmBox for 1-2 persons might include vine-ripened tomatoes, assorted greens, eggplant, bell pepper, green beans, cucumber and cabbage, though selections can be customized as well.
Sunizona Family Farms goes beyond organic with ëveganicí growing practices that are free from the use of animal products, employing strictly plant-based materials. This type of growing reduces the risk of contamination from animal-related diseases, hormones and chemicals. The farm sells nearly all of their products locally.

About Sunizona Family Farms
Sunizona Family Farms is a family owned and operated, certified organic and veganic operation in southern Arizona. Located in a mountain valley, we grow over 50 different types of vegetables and fruits. Our sunny, high desert weather combined with climate controlled greenhouses enable us to grow year round. We are committed to growing great food dense with flavor and nutrition while cooperating with nature using sustainable growing techniques we refer to as Veganically Grown. This practice decreases the potential risk of contamination from animal-related diseases and doesn't introduce the hormones, antibiotics, and heavy metals found in animal fertilizer sources that have negative impacts on the environment and our health. We are thankful for our extended family of coworkers who help make it possible for you to experience our farm - fresh each week directly from us to you - in your very own Sunizona Family FarmBox.
