A farm-based utopia near Phoenix

In the nearby town of Gilbert, check out an experiment in living simply: the utopian community of Agritopia, a 160-acre cluster of ranch homes anchored by an urban farm and farm-sourced restaurants. Grab an alfresco burger at Joe’s Farm Grill ($), followed by a slice of banana cream pie at the Coffee Shop ($). Stroll the rows of the community garden, then stop by the farmstand for the latest harvest. agritopia.com

Get a taste in Phoenix: Grilled fish with Agritopia’s roasted cauliflower or the Far East Salad’s napa cabbage, romaine lettuce, mint, and cilantro at Liberty Market. $; libertymarket.com
