Company Background
The Hauser family has been farming for six generations. Dick and Kevin Hauser farm in the Camp Verde and Paulden areas. Dick's brothers have farmed in Tolleson and St. Johns for  40 years. Their father raised and hauled citrus in North Phoenix from 1948 until retirement. Prior to that, the family farmed in Iowa. Recently Kevin has expanded his agriculture operation.  He now farms walnuts, oranges and olives in California's Central Valley.
Farms Provide Farming in rural Arizona… Arizona farms are important. They provide open space, green belts, wildlife habitat, buffer zones and contribute to Arizona’s history and character. Farmland is a tourist attraction that provides economic and educational benefits. People travel for hundreds of miles for fresh sweet corn, other fruits and vegetables, and farm activities. Arizona agriculture provides for quality of life and economy.
The Verde Valley is located in central Arizona. Water from the Verde River and other tributaries such as Beaver Creek & Oak Creek has helped keep it green & promote farming. Before the white settlers began farming, the land was extensively used by the Sinagua Indians, dating back over 1000 years ago. Some of the irrigation ditches used in Camp Verde were originally built by these early residents of the Verde Valley. Corn was a staple for nourishment, as well as an important element in the Sinaguan culture. Hauser and Hauser Farms continues farming corn in the Verde Valley as our early predecessors once did.
