Welcome to Firesky Farms, we are Shannon and Sabrina Harwell.

We are native Arizonans and have the privilege of saying we were married in Sierra Vista, AZ in 1988; you can do the math…

We have had many adventures in this time span, with the greatest being raising two beautiful daughters. Over the last three decades life and careers have led us to live in 3 different places in AZ and 2 in California. But, in our hearts, we always knew, we’d come back home to southern Arizona, which we did in 2020.

Both of us were raised in and around southern Arizona, particularly Tucson and Sierra Vista as kids, so we have a strong love and familiarity with the area. Funny thing is we used to drive through Sonoita/Elgin, AZ as teenagers and comment that it was beautiful and would be a great place to retire.

Well, here we are, to that point in life where you start thinking about your future (again). Something different, slower, in-tune with the Earth, community, more rewarding; Farming in Sonoita/Elgin, AZ.

We started planning our lavender farm in 2020 and had our first harvest in 2022. We opened our Farm Store in July of 2023 and are open most weekends. We are also attending many events and Farmers Markets in Sierra Vista and Tucson. Please check out our Calendar page for upcoming events and hours.



Looking Forward 2023 and 2024:

  • We will be adding another 3200 Lavender plants and increasing to 15 varieties in the spring of 2024.

  • We will be planting 144 Olive trees with 7 varieties in 2024.

  • We plan to hold our first annual Lavender Festival in the summer of 2024.

  • It’s going to be a busy winter prepping all the fields for the big plant.

  • If you are interested in helping with the planting, let us know. We will have a large group and BBQ will be served to all volunteers.

  • We will continue to support other festivals and farmers markets, so keep track of all events on the “Calendar” page of our website and follow us on Facebook.
