Hello, my name is Susie Thompson and I manage the rentals for Dr. Richard Tinlin (pictured). Working on Summer Place Pecan Farm is relaxed, idyllic and magical. As an artist, Susie uses her talents to make the farm properties comfortable, homey, and visually unique to Arizona. Susie is a 5th generation Arizonan with her family settling the northeastern towns of Springerville and Eagar. She studied Recreation and Land Management at Northern Arizona University, with self study in central Mexico influenced by a love for the works of Frida Kahlo and Ted DeGrazia. Her style of painting reflects the brightness of Mexico and Arizona with whimsical humor. Do you like wine? Our valley is home to several wineries and we have a German speaking sommelier with meal, touring and tasting trips, or European style breakfast delivery.
Dr. Richard Tinlin planted our 1400 trees 35 years ago. He is a Doctor of Philosophy with his area of expertise being Hydrology. Our farm has been in continual working existence since being homesteaded in 1893. Dr. Tinlin is an expert on the water of our valley and is dedicated to it's proper usage and conservation. Because of his stewardship of the land and it's inhabitants we enjoy many animals that have been banished from other areas of the valley.
