Descending from three generations of dairy farmers, siblings Casey and Alison Stechnij carry on their family's legacy by maintaining Superstition Farm's 30 acres. The brother-and-sister duo regularly shepherd informative tours through the landscape, summoning horses, chickens, goats, and sheep to greet guests and share their perspectives. The four-legged residents also assist in horseback riding lessons and appearances at the onsite petting zoo.
Every Thursday, local food trucks flock to Superstition Farm for a weekly market, where they vend fresh produce, breads, and meats alongside the farm's own dairy products, including the house-made Udder Delights brand of ice cream and artisanal cheeses. Superstition Farm further disseminates its farm-fresh cuisine via a 30-foot-long food truck that makes appearances at local events and defends cattle against the persistent threat of monster trucks.
The professional uniformed chauffeurs at Lexani Limousines ferry guests to wine country and beyond in luxuriant late-model horseless carriages. Guests will depart from one of two pickup locations--the Hilton Mesa or Metrocenter Mall—at 10 a.m. for Cornville Springs winery in one of Lexani’s kitted out motor coaches before embarking on a full day of vino appreciation. Attentions are diverted with video entertainment systems, stowaway card tables, and reading lights, and the vehicle’s pivoting seats and bathrooms ensure all the comforts of a narrower, shinier home. At 8 p.m., passengers spent from the day’s grape sniffing will return in style with plenty of storage space to house rare vintages or vine-fastened friendship necklaces.
The pest police at Bug & Weed Mart outfit beleaguered homeowners with the necessary tools to beat back incursions of insects, rodents, and weeds. A regimen of Maxforce Professional Ant Bait ($23.99) removes pesky crumb-snatchers while keeping pets safe, and Gentrol Roach/Bedbug Sterilant does away with nocturnal ne'er-do-wells ($12.99). The Spray Doc Professional Pump Sprayer ($36) conjures up an anti-weed spell through its brass wand and nozzle, teleporting encroaching foliage to an extradimensional plant jail. No winged intruder goes unpunished with the Maxforce Professional Fly Killer ($14.99). To aid in the ongoing rodent resistance, the staff will provide step-by-step instructions on the proper use of all products, and will grease and clean sprayers free of charge.
Tile adds a clean, creative look to kitchens, bathrooms, and patios, but it's also an eco-friendly flooring material that requires no harsh chemicals or maintenance to keep it gleaming. Staff members at A World of Tile help clients to upgrade living spaces with this environmentally friendly alternative through in-house design consultations and a range of ceramic, stone, and specialty tiles. They amass products from across the globe, offering unique designs and SunTouch heated options that warm toes during cold winter months and prevent chihuahuas from shaking the whole year. During free hands-on workshops, staffers teach customers how to correctly install tile themselves or provide referrals to local contractors.
Starting the first week of November, EZ Christmas Lights technicians can be found gussying homes and businesses for the holiday season. The crew unpacks customers' lights and decorations from their storage facilities and then sets about artfully hanging them over the entirety of the structure, on rooftops and around windows. Though EZ Christmas Lights doesn't supply the hardware, it does provide the client with a list of needed items prior to decoration day and a free estimate for putting them up. When the Christmas season comes to a close, the team returns to repeat the process in reverse, carefully taking the lights down and storing them for the rest of the year.
