Bob Biggs or “Farmer Bob” as most people knew him, was a 4th generation Arizonan and proud of the fact that his great grandfather helped settle Lehi Valley in 1878. Bob Biggs loved visiting Schnepf Farms when his daughter, Carrie married Mark Schnepf. In 1991. In 1999, Carrie established “Farmer for the Day.” He also drove to the farm each day to educate 1000′s of school children on the importance of agriculture. He will be remembered by the many who were taught what a “dirt farmer” really does. His patience and love of educating the children was felt by many parents.
