Payson Fruit Growers

As a co-op of eight family farms, Payson Fruit Growers originally grew Montmorency cherries, a varietal that originated in Europe and found popularity in the America as “pie cherries,” a cherry renowned for its tartness and color. A staple of middle American cuisine, the market started to shift for cherry growers in the 1980s.

Seeing an opportunity in the dried fruit market, our owners started to experiment with drying the harvested pitted cherries. The tart Montmorency cherry is unique — firm and intensely red, and not as tart as you might think for our modern taste buds. Payson Fruit Growers discovered dried tart cherries were delicious incorporated into salads, covered in chocolate, or just eaten by the handful.

“We’ve been customers for several years and love the dried cherries as well as the chocolate covered cherries. I love the milk chocolate and my husband loves the dark chocolate cherries. I usually order them in the cool months, but i took a chance and ordered them in June, and they were perfect! We’re having a cool snap and they are packaged in foam, so they arrived perfect! They make wonderful gifts for the holidays, everyone just loves them!” – Rose Obrien, Google Review

I have no words to express how wonderful Forage Creek is. The products they offer are high quality and most importantly they will assure you that what you are purchasing is organic and without hormones. The owner is very nice and what I love the most is that they allow you to do your shopping from home and online. It’s so convenient, specially in this difficult time that we are going through with the pandemic. Not only for the ease of ordering your products from home and pick them up, but because you are also supporting a local farmer and his business. Thank you so much!!!” – Thalia, Google Review

Great little farmers market. It’s not nearly as big as the downtown market, which isn’t necessarily bad, as it feels more intimate and easier to get through. There’s a decent selection of vendors and food trucks. We usually will walk around the farm afterwards, my son loves to see the animals after going through the market.

What a beautiful place! Love the Sunday Farmers market in the late Summer.You can get breakfast, or brunch and coffee. Not to mention all the amazing fresh farm produce and other eclectic vendors. BUT there is so so much more! From the historic farm, barn and animals, with all the activities associated there, there are beautiful ground with huge trees and ponds, walking and jogging trails. There are vegetable gardens and beautiful carved wooden sculptures from trees. Playgrounds, picnic area, tons of grass, pet friendly. Just a wonderful place to spend some time!

Acres of recreation, wagon rides, historic tractors, huge play structure, animals galore, and the best Farmer’s market this side of the valley. I can’t say enough about how great this facility is. My family and I have been coming here for years. We love this historic farm. The tour of the farmhouse is definitely worth checking out.

Rocky Top Fruit Farm

We specialize in u-pick fruit. Our goal is to provide a healthy alternative to what you can purchase in the store or at roadside stands. You know exactly where your fruit came from. You know exactly when it was picked. You know exactly who has been handling your fruit! We grow sweet cherries, peaches, apples and berries. We are extending the current dead end road to bring our customers right to our new shed. We have future plans for an animal display of chickens, goats, etc. to enjoy.

We have our own beehives and extract our own honey and you can buy it here! These hives NEVER leave our property.  The bees are not in some neighbor’s sprayed yards. We have sheep to the south and cows to the north. The honey is raw and has an excellent flavor. We extract it by spinning and screening and not heating.

Our philosophy is if we feed our animals and our trees with healthy nutrients, they will not get sick. We use as many organic pest control methods as possible. Occasionally we have to spray for something as we monitor pests, but avoid this at all costs when there is fruit ready to pick. Our cherries are definitely grown and cared for organically. We do as much trapping as possible in our peaches and apples. Our berries are never sprayed for pests after they begin setting blossoms.

We came to pick peaches, and we loved it! So fun, easy, and delicious. They take cards, which was a great surprise. Would definitely recommend.

My mom, sister, and I stumbled upon Phelps Fruit and Berry Farm 2 weeks ago. It is a hidden gem! Signs clearly mark the way to the farm. There’s parking very close to the fruit trees. We picked peaches and they were super delicious! It was easy to pay and we even picked up some jam! I brought my college roommates back yesterday and we were just as pleased! We each got some jam and this time we picked a whole box of peaches! We can hardly wait for them to ripen!

Paizlee’s Meats

Paizlee’s Grass Fed Beef offers the highest quality, sustainably raised, grass fed beef that Southern Utah has to offer. From our aged prime cut steaks, to our handmade small batch strip jerky; the decadent flavor and tenderness of our grass fed beef products will transport you back to the moment you first took a bite!

We hand select every cow we process right out of the field. For a cow to become a Paizlee’s cow, they have never been in a corral. Never have they found themselves being fed grains or any imported type of feed. If it doesn’t grow in their pasture, then they don’t eat it. Paizlee’s cows live a stress free life, they are all worked stress free in the traditional, horseback ways that have been handed down for generations. Slow and steady workings from horseback make these cows not only traditional in image and experience; but reduce, if not eliminate, any stress during the process of husbandry.

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.

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.
