The Utah Farm Bureau Federation (UFBF) is the state’s largest voluntary organization of farmers and ranchers – but really, we consist of more than 34,000 member families committed to protecting Utah’s farms and ranches, and ensuring a safe, fresh and locally grown food supply. Our members live in all of Utah’s 29 counties and belong to county Farm Bureaus, which, in turn, comprise the Utah Farm Bureau Federation.
Utah Farm Bureau Markets were created in order to give local farmers and ranchers direct-to-consumer sales, and to give consumers an opportunity to meet and talk to the men and women who grow their food. We are a food-only market, with an emphasis on produce and staple foods.
Farm Bureau is an independent, non-governmental, voluntary organization of farm and ranch families united for the purposes of addressing their problems and formulating action to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity and social advancement and, thereby, to promote the national well-being. Farm Bureau is local, county, state, national and international in its scope and influence, and is non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-secret in character. Farm Bureau is the voice of agriculture at all levels.
UFBF represents all commodity interests and is involved in all issues that are of concern to the state’s farmers and ranchers, including taxation, property rights and services to the farm community.
The organization works to support its producer members through legislative advocacy, leadership development programs, commodity associations, rural health & safety programs, insurance products, marketing, and other services.

The Utah Farm Bureau
The Utah Farm Bureau was organized in the fall of 1916 by a group of Utah farmers who met in Salt Lake City. D.D. McKay of Huntsville, Utah, became the first president of the state organization. He served until 1922. The first convention was held in 1918 at the Utah Agricultural College in Logan. The first session of the convention was dedicated almost entirely to discussing the price they should seek for sugar beets. Since then, the organization has developed into the largest general agricultural organization in the state of Utah.
Utah Farm Bureau started the first Farmers Market in Utah in 1981, which was located in their office parking lot. That market has since moved locations to Murray Park. We also own and operate the South Jordan Farmers Market, which is in its 11th year.
