Rattlebox Farm


Rattlebox Farm - a 4.5 acre family farm located in Tucson, Arizona, that raises organically grown vegetables, melons and flowers - is co-owned and farmed by Dana Helfer and Paul Buseck. We started our farming business in Tucson in 2009 with a multi-plot urban farm (called Menlo Farms) in three west side neighborhoods of Tucson. In 2013 we found our permanent home on the south east edge of town near the Pantano Wash. Here we grow vegetables and raise our two children.

While we now farm one field of an acre, we plan to expand over time. We sell our produce through a Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA), a weekly farmers' market stand, wholesale and though our local farmers' cooperative. We farm with love and care using organic methods that build and maintain healthy soil. Our farm is Certified Naturally Grown and we are always trying to learn better ways of farming.


You can find our produce at the Santa Cruz River Farmer's Market every Thursday, September-May from 4-7 pm.
