About
We offer farm tours relating to local agriculture including cotton and alfalfa. Learn how cotton is grown from seed to bale. This 2 1/2 to 3 hour tour includes an indoor presentation followed by a hayride out to the field. Cotton is planted in the spring and picked in the fall. We have cotton in the field until mid-February. You will see a cotton picker, cotton module builder and a cotton rood which picks up ground cotton. If cotton is not in the ground, we still offer tours. Please call for information on dates, times and reservations. Reservations are required.

Nancy is an educator at heart and Caywood Farms are are a 5th generation farm. I went with my daughter in law, and 3 grandsons, ages 10-21. I learned so much and Nancy did a great job showing and explaining everything in a way that held everyone's attention. I have been coming to Casa Grande for 12 years, and this is the first time learning about cotton and farming. I highly recommend!

What a wonderful, worthwhile, informative experience! We were 4 seniors. Nancy was a delightful, intelligent, articulate host. This large, professional farm has been owned and operated by the same family for more than 90 years. We came away with a deepened sense of what the family farm life means to successive generations. We also have a deepened appreciation for the myriad of factors going into getting products from seed to store. There's a lot to it.

Our Corvette Club does all kinds of travel, and this time we found a gem to visit almost in our own backyard. Caywood Farms provides entertainment and education in a fun package that all ages can enjoy. From the hoedown music to the hayride and cotton picking, to learning about the whole process, our very large group enjoyed the whole trip. We all would definitely recommend a visit.

One of our traveling group asked "why do we want to visit a cotton farm". Well, now she knows why! Our 2 1/2 hour tour of the Caywood Farm was outstanding. Nancy taught us so much, and she did it with our comfort and safely in mind. It was a warm day, about 92 degrees, so she split the tour so that we were indoors in a/c, then out. She has vast knowledge about the area, agriculture, water issues, cotton, and so much more. And what's best, she was a hoot - including jokes, and funny anecdotes. The five of us just loved being there with Nancy. Highly recommend Caywood Farms.

Had the privilege of visiting Caywood Farm and you cannot ask for a better tour guide. Nancy is passionate and really knows her farm, the water issues, and her community. You will absolutely enjoy your visit! It’s imperative that we support our farmers!

This tour was very informational. Learned slot about the cotton process. Also very informational on the water shed issues the area and state of Arizona have in growing any sort of plant based product. Tour consists of a 45 minute tutorial and 25-30 min wagon ride. Did you know that Twinkies have cotton oil in it? Also set some nice take homes!! Would recommend for couples and families. Reasonably priced

We enjoyed this tour so much. It was so informative. Nancy and her family are 5th generation cotton farmers. She explained the entire process, water problems, marketing and processing. She even remembered it was our 45th wedding anniversary and presented us with two beautiful glasses with the Caywood Farm logo on them. Such a wonderful day. thank you

Caywood Farm tour was a highly informative. The tour had history and information on Arizona farming that was humorous and very educational. Nancy was a great source of information on the challenges and rewards of farming in the desert. The challenges of drought and water restrictions was well presented. I loved the hands on of the cotton samples and having the opportunity to pick cotton from the field.
I would highly recommend this tour.

We just visited here for a homeschool field trip while visiting from Oregon during Covid. Absolutely excellent tour. My kids ages 10-13 loved seeing the farm implements, watching the presentation to learn all about the cotton harvest, and especially picking and handling the cotton. She modifies the presentation for younger kids. Nancy is an excellent guide. Highly recommended!

Caywood Farms is a fourth generation cotton farm in Casa Grande, AZ, and the owners are friendly, down to earth folks. The tour begins with a free bag of popcorn which you enjoy while examining the cotton harvesting equipment and visiting with the resident horses and pig. After everyone is checked in, Nancy, an agricultural professor, uses samples of cotton, photographs, and other tools to teach you all about the cotton growing industry. This is followed by a tractor drawn hayride to a cotton field where you are allowed to pick your own cotton. The tour lasts 2/1/2 hours and cost $10 per person. You register by phone and pay in cash when you show up. This tour is a must when visiting southeastern Arizona and we feel it is a much hidden treasure that needs to be revealed.
