Crooked Sky Farms
Frank Martin, owner of Crooked Sky Farms and a believer in ecologically sustainable agricultural methods, developed a profound respect for seeds and their eventual bounty as the child of a farmer and an organic gardener. The farm's humble beginnings date back to 1999, when Frank began cultivating seedlings in his own backyard and showering the plants with water and nightly bedtime stories. The South Phoenix–based farm has expanded to four urban locations, and supplies in-season offerings to local farmers' markets and members of its Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) initiative. Each week, members of the CSA visit the farm to collect their eight portions of fruits and vegetables, ideal for culinary pursuits or heightening the realism of Carmen Miranda fashion tributes.
Crooked Sky Farms' crops spring from the Earth without the addition of chemical insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, or fertilizers, earning them a certified naturally grown accreditation. The farm's abundant lanes of dense plants glean their enrichment from compost produced by the farm or sourced from organic providers, as well as natural and time-tested agricultural methods such as crop rotation, the use of protective buffer plants, and serenading clouds to make them rain. The picturesque planting grounds serve as a backdrop for seasonal events featuring cuisine crafted from the farm's produce and live entertainment under the romantic glow of the desert sky.
