The newest farmhand

Leyton Dean wants to introduce the newest farmhand at Rocker 7, Bowen Ranzy Leister.

Bowen joined us at 6:19 pm, as the third generation of Leister men to be born on January 7th (he shares a birthday with his dad and grandpa). “Ranzy” was the name of his great-great-grandfather, who originally brought the family to Arizona and got involved in agriculture.

Bowen weighed 7 pounds, was 20 inches long, and stole all our hearts right away, especially his big sister’s. Everyone is doing well, and adjusting to having more chores on the farm!

A new iron in the fire

Rocker 7 Farm Patch LogoFor years, we have longed to have a portion of our farm designated to open up to the public. This fall, we are finally getting to do that with Rocker 7 Farm Patch.

We’re hosting a full fall festival complete with a pumpkin patch, corn maze, sunflower field, hayrides, and lots of entertainment and games to keep the whole family happy. During the week, we’ll also have engaging educational opportunities for school groups that include a curriculum-based lesson delivered by a certified Arizona educator.

We are thrilled to finally offer all of this to the far west valley, in a convenient, yet still rural location. We hope to see you this fall, and be sure to follow along with us on Facebook in the meantime.

The new farmhand

Early this year, Rocker 7 Farms welcomed Leyton Dean Leister to the family farming operation.

While we have never been busier around here, life has also never been better.
