ALISON TROUB
Farm Manager

Alison has been with us since the farm first opened its gates, though her role has grown and changed along with the farm. She initially brought her food service expertise to the farm as a concessions server, which developed into a role as Concessions Manager, overseeing nearly every aspect of on-farm concessions. In 2020, when everything changed, Alison's role developed into an all-encompassing Farm Manager, from greeting guests at the gate to managing sales and inventory. 

BRANDON AND KATIE LEISTER
OWNERS AND FOUNDERS

Brandon met Katie in Texas, and convinced her to join him in his lifelong dream of building a business in production agriculture. It worked, and they harvested their first wheat crop on Rocker 7 Farms the same month they were married, in June 2008.

Since then, they have enjoyed more than a decade of successful farming and family building in the Valley of the Sun. For years, they dreamed of opening up their farm to welcome the community for a fun, family farm experience, where they were educated as much as they were entertained. Rocker 7 Farm Patch was that dream come to life when the gates first opened in Fall 2014. While the business has both grown and shifted in recent years, the enjoyment of seeing families frolic on the farm remains the same.

Brandon’s family roots run deep in Arizona agriculture, in both crop and livestock production. Katie’s have just been planted, but she wouldn’t trade the experience of raising a farm family.

When Rocker 7 Farms and Rocker 7 Farm Patch are running smoothly, Brandon and Katie spend every spare minute with their children, Leyton, Bowen and Emmy, who are fifth generation Arizona agriculturists. They also both enjoy the great Arizona outdoors and spend hunting season in search of big coues whitetail deer and fishing season waiting for a large bass to catch their line.

Rocker 7 Farm Patch is truly a family operation, and we are beyond excited to share it with other families to help them create a memorable farm experience!
