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.

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!

Delectation of Tomatoes

Principles and ideas which inform the efforts of Delectation of Tomatoes include:

-Optimal human health depends upon consumption of a wide array of nutrient-dense fresh fruits and vegetables, free of harmful chemicals and contaminants;

-Such food is best acquired from backyard gardens or from local farmers who offer their freshly harvested produce through farmers markets, CSA’s, local restaurants and specialty stores;

-Big corporate farms tend to be profit-driven, impersonal, unconcerned about healthy soils and sustainability, typically concentrate money in the hands of the few, and can rarely match the quality, diversity and nutritional levels of locally produced agricultural products.

In light of these considerations, Delectation of Tomatoes offers, specifically to local gardeners and small farmers:

-Seeds of over 3,000 varieties of fruits and vegetables representing a remarkable collection of heirlooms from around the world, including 1,000 varieties which are not tomatoes (i.e. peppers, melons, squash, beans, lettuce, corn, etc.);

-Seedlings of more than 500 varieties each spring, customizable (with advance requests) to the needs and curiosity of individual gardeners and farmers;

-Fresh produce on a limited scale, based upon what is not needed for seed production;

-Service upon request, including lectures, workshops and onsite training about garden and farm planning, extending the growing season, raising food at high elevation, ecologically responsible and sustainable growing practices, seed saving, self-reliance, etc.

If you want to live, you must eat; if you eat, you might as well eat healthy; while you’re at it, please enjoy eating a wide diversity of tasty and interesting heirloom fruits and vegetable from around the world!  Gardening and eating fresh, local, naturally grown food are cheaper than psychotherapy and unnecessary doctor bills which result from diseases which can be largely prevented with good nutrition. The idea is to make these nutritious products so readily available, so interesting and so tasty that people will be far less tempted eat the faux food found in fast and processed “food”.  Enhanced physical, psychological, social and financial health will be some of the benefits that emerge from this endeavor.

Wasatch Cooperative Market

Earth First Eco Farms

On my small, urban Earth First Eco Farms I follow only ecologically sound farming practices, though I am not certified organic. I strive to use only non-GMO varieties. My crops are all open pollinated varieties, which ensure biodiversity and the ability to save seeds. I feel that I am a steward to the land—it is for that reason that I always give more than I take.
