SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- For decades, the Singh family has called the land at the Loop 101 and Thomas Road in Scottsdale home.

However, 60 years later, Ken Singh decided he was going to switch it up a little and get back to farming the way his ancestors did -- all natural.

"If you want a good life, you want to enjoy what you're working on, you must put proper fuel in your body," Singh said.

So he scrapped his 20-acre farm where he mass produced six or so crops and rebuilt from the soil up.

"Look at the power of nature right here," he said. "I've put nothing chemical here. There is nothing manmade. I only use fish, tea and compost."

So recently he opened to the public on Saturdays where people can come in, shop, play and eat. Singh just hired an artisanal chef.

"Our focus is nutritional," Chef Gerome Fressinier said. "It's nutritionally enhanced food with the focus on what can be preserved or what must be eaten by tomorrow."

And so far he's been getting rave reviews.

Singh Farms is open Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
