Litchfield Park could be home to a new agricultural tourism site similar to Agritopia in Gilbert and The Farm at South Mountain in Phoenix, enterprises
that bring visitors by combining a working farm with restaurants and retail.
“There could be vineyards and fields interspersed with some restaurants with agricultural type businesses, and maybe a brew pub,” said Mike Curley, an attorney handling the application process for the owner of the 65-acre parcel, Sun Health Properties Inc. and Sun Health Property Leasing.
The Litchfield Park City Council approved the concept for the northwest corner of Litchfield and Camelback roads, which allows not only an agritourism site, but also an expansion of the Sun Health Campus, which includes medical offices and La Loma Village, a retirement community owned by Sun Health Senior Living.
