It was a little lengthy. Too much time spent in the field. There was only one bathroom, but they said they are going to update the facility. It was a rather large crowd so they split us in two groups. We first took the hayride...More

it's unreal how they are limited on water, can only grow a few acres of cotton a year, yet people can use all the water they want with no restrictions.

Very informative presentation. These folks know their stuff and share some eye opening information, and stats at the same time keeping it light.

This was a great way to learn about cotton farming and to actually tour some cotton fields and bring home some self picked cotton branches. Very well organized, enjoyable.

The historical presentation is informative and presented enthusiastically. As a city boy, I learned a lot about cotton farming from a family that's been doing it for years. After the presentation, you tour the farm itself. Well worth the time and effort you expense.

Caywood Farms tour was informative and fun. Video and overview of cotton farming enlightening. Wagon ride, equipment explanations, water issues, and picking cotton were all worthwhile experiences.

Found out about the conflict between food and fibre and housing for water in Arizona. The best teacher is a farmer.
