Gila River

became a tribal entity on March 6, 1968 after the Pima and Maricopa people changed their traditional garden plots into Gila River Farms and originally operated approximately 14,000 acres in the beginning, to the Farms harvest 10,743 acres consisting of alfalfa, cotton, wheat, orchards, and olive trees. All of which are marketed through local, national and global markets. The largest acreage is devoted to alfalfa. Past years crops included cotton, olives, wheat, barley, sorghum, and citrus.
