Frog Bench Farms

Frog Bench Farms (FBF) is an organic urban farm nestled into the Wasatch foothills of Salt Lake City growing a little under two acres of high quality veggies, herbs, fruits, cut flowers, nuts, micro/petite greens and edible flowers since 2012. Our business model thrives on building local chef relations, who prepare our produce in beautiful ways for their eateries.

Whenever possible all plants are started from seed. We utilize cold frames, low/high hoop houses and our 2800 square foot greenhouse to grow year round. Our small organization sells to local restaurants and food trucks in a 15 mile radius.

Our operation relies heavily on solar power, a water collection system, composting, crop rotation, beneficial insects, and cover crops. These are better for the environment and create a better tasting product when it hits your plate!

Sometimes it’s not the quantity produced, but rather the quality of the product. Here at Frog Bench Farms we focus on bringing the most delicious ingredients to our local chefs.

Rino’s Italian Fresh

Rino’s Italian Fresh believes in producing good quality salsa, marinara sauce and pesto made from his own naturally grown heirloom tomatoes and produce.  Rino’s mission is to provide a product made from vine ripe tomatoes with amazing fresh flavor.

He couldn’t stand the thought of sitting at home after retirement. Rino has always lived a very active lifestyle and now has decided to pursue producing his home made sauces.

Rino is starting off with making his fresh sauces and selling them at the local farmers markets. He is selling his products seasonally for now so he can maintain the high quality sauce with his produce. Flavor means everything to Rino and he doesn’t want to compromise that with sourcing his produce elsewhere.

Reviews

I like Rino’s Italian Fresh because the varieties of produce they sell are quite different from what else you would typically find in Utah. The main products I would recommend are the grapes, figs, and basil. I haven’t found another farmer who sells products like the grapes and basil. And even cold-hardy figs are quite difficult to grow in the long winter climate.

Keep It Real Vegetables

Keep It Real Vegetables is an urban farming project located in Salt Lake City, Utah. I grow produce by hand on several small-scale gardens in the Salt Lake valley. I am dedicated to growing the freshest, highest quality produce available. I adhere strictly to organic growing practices, enriching my soils with massive quantities of compost, compost teas, cover crops, and organic amendments until the soil is sweet enough to deliver the flavor I am looking for.

        The quality of produce grown by these lovely people is second to none, it is the best Salt Lake City has to offer! I love knowing these two care for the earth and soil as much as they do for the vegetables they grow.

        Just made potato salad with your garlic scapes. OMG it is amazing!!!!!
        Thank you SO MUCH for introducing me to scapes. I have added them to a bunch of my old standby dishes as well as trying the things you suggested. I don’t know what I did before scapes. They are so good and add to everything I try them in!

        I’ve been following Tyler since the Sand Hill Farms days and his ever-expanding produce selection has–in terms of taste, nutrition and environmental stewardship–consistently been as good as it gets.

Copper Moose Farm

Copper Moose Farm is located in Park City, Utah—elevation 7,000 feet. Growing at this altitude, with over 300 inches of snow per year, is a challenging and exciting adventure. We are excited to provide the best organically/biodynamically grown produce and cut flowers for the Park City community.

Our farm is located on over 3 acres and is assisted by our 2,400 square-foot passive solar greenhouse and two hoop houses. Contact us today through our CSA, on-site farm stand, and local restaurants.
