Hickman’s Family Farms
Like the Ak-Chin Indian Community, Hickman’s has a deep respect for the environment and is dedicated to long-term sustainability. This made Hickman’s a perfect fit for Santa Cruz Commerce Center and created a unique opportunity for the two entities to forge a mutual relationship that benefits both entities. In this arrangement, Hickman’s procures feed for its flocks from Ak-Chin Farms from the crops grown at Ak-Chin while the Farms use the chicken waste from Hickman’s as fertilizer for growing its crops. Creative solutions like this is just one the ways Ak-Chin sets itself apart from the competition.
