Queen Creek is a small town situated in southeast Maricopa County, with the southern portion of town overlapping into Pinal County. The town is a unique mix of housing sub-divisions, homes on acreage, farmers and ranchers, and despite its growth, Queen Creek still has that rural feel about it. The San Tan Mountains lie to the south of Queen Creek and offer plenty of recreational activities including hiking, biking, camping and the like. Queen Creek is also home to the only working olive farm and mill in the State of Arizona – Queen Creek Olive Mill, where visitors can tour the olive mill, stroll through the olive groves, enjoy casual dining, and purchase a variety of olive oils and other unique gifts. Schnepf Farms is another longtime local fixture in the town of Queen Creek, where visitors can dine at the bakery, enjoy a hayride, tour the farm, go veggie picking, visit the museum, and much more. Given its small town feel, abundance of recreational activities, and easy commute to Phoenix and other valley cities, Queen Creek has become one of the “best kept secrets” in Arizona.
