Why Utah's Own?
Utah's Own connects consumers with local farmers, ranchers, food artisans and other agricultural producers.
When you buy from a Utah producer, you strengthen the economy, create local jobs, increase food security, and help preserve farms, ranches, small businesses, and farmland. This causes a ripple effect to ensure Utah will have farms and ranches for generations to come. Locally produced food is often higher in quality and freshness. Additionally, reducing the distance food travels reduces associated air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Local food systems are also linked to reduced food safety risks through production decentralization.
Getting to know your local producers gives you a stronger sense of place, relationships, trust, and pride within your community. With so many incredible producers in Utah, you’re bound to find something new to love each time you choose to support our local food supply.
Industry Driven, State Supported
As a state supported program, established within the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food in 2002, Utah's Own continues to work with local farmers, ranchers, food artisans, retailers, distributors as well as business and government leaders. This culture creates an unique environment for progressive marketing and economic business development.
Fifteen years after the brand was introduced, Utah's Own was given the statutory responsibility to promote locally produced products of agriculture. As a result, Utah's Own refined membership requirements, introduced an annual membership fee and provided guidelines for authentic local marketing.
As you browse the Utah's Own Producer Directory, you'll note a variety of entrepreneurs from start-ups to centennial companies that are proudly local.
