Schnepf Farms sells 13 acres of land in Queen Creek to build rental homes
QUEEN CREEK, AZ — There's a housing boom across the Valley, and Schnepf Farms is the latest farm to sell a piece of land to developers.
Mark Schnepf tells ABC15 his family made the decision to sell 13 acres of their 300-acre farm to pay for improvements.
"Fencing, utilities, infrastructure, because the farm is 80 years old now," Schnepf said.
Construction is now underway for about 150 rental homes, expected to be completed by late summer of this year. Schnepf says they'll be single-level cottage-like homes, with walkways and parks in between.
