"At our conference, two different local caterers were used and each incorporated local ingredients and cuisine into their meals...SDCC hosted some of the best food I've had in a rural area."
- Pilar, Washington DC
Our property features a full commercial kitchen outfitted with professional cooking equipment, supplies, and pantry staples. We partner with local caterers, restaurants, and home cooks to cater up to three meals a day for groups.
Our kitchen can also be rented by Ajo residents and guests interested in preparing food for events and farmers' markets; creating value-added food products; and hosting cooking workshops, retreats, and demonstrations. Rental rates range from $8-20/hour, with discounts for Ajo Regional Food Partnership members and Authentically Ajo Farmers Market vendors.

Our property also houses the Many Hands Learning Center & Urban Farm, managed by our partners the Ajo Center for Sustainable Agriculture.
