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.

New Roots Farm

Many refugees and other New Americans come to the U.S. with backgrounds in agriculture. New Roots, a farmer training and food access initiative of the International Rescue Committee in Salt Lake City, provides these communities with a way to reconnect with land, grow culturally appropriate vegetables, and leverage their farming skills to earn supplemental income.

New Roots farmers earn income through produce sales to local schools, restaurants and Whole Foods Markets in Utah. They also operate three workplace CSA’s, delivering vegetable shares to employees of partnering businesses. New Roots founded and continues to operate and sell at the Sunnyvale Farmers Market and new for 2019, New Roots Farmers Market at Central Park.     

New Roots farmers grow a number of crops familiar to the American palate, including Beets, Carrots, Heirloom Slicing Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Spinach, Kale, Spring Mix, a variety of  Peppers, and Eggplant. Additionally, they grow speciality ethnic crops like African Eggplant, Aleppo Peppers, Amaranth Greens, Molokhia (Egyptian Spinach), Thai Chili Peppers, Tatume Squash, and long beans, among others.

All proceeds from sales go to the program’s 35+ farmers who originate from Sudan, Burma, Bhutan, Chad, Somalia, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The farmers collectively manage 15 acres of leased land spread throughout Salt Lake County.

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.

Ephraim Community Garden

The garden’s mission is to build self-reliance within the community by giving access to fresh, local food and the space, tools, and resources to do so. The garden is for teaching and demonstrating gardening techniques to community groups such as students and citizens. Stop by the garden to learn more about pioneer methods and heirloom species—after all, the garden is located in historic Ephraim Square.

We encourage participants to “grow a row” then donate their produce to the food bank and families in need. It is also possible to rent a plot for just $20 per season. The plot includes water, seeds, seedling starts (while they are available), and access to garden tools. Participants can also work in the public area of the garden at your convenience to accumulate credits for fresh produce as it becomes available.

Support the community garden, and local private gardens, by buying veggies and locally-made goods at the farmers’ market or Bishop’s Storehouse as veggies are harvested. We’re grateful for and always in need of volunteers who can give time to the garden. If you don’t have time then you can opt to donate cash or materials. We invite you to come play in the garden!

3 Squares Produce is a small family farming operation in Davis and Salt Lake counties. We grow fruits and vegetables naturally, meeting or exceeding organic standards. We grow on nearly 10 acres, spread over two counties and nine separate plots of land. We have two very small orchards in Davis County, two vegetables fields in West Valley City, in Salt Lake County, and five private residential gardens in Salt Lake County. We also have a small orchard and CSA in Bountiful, Utah—the last orchard on Orchard Drive.

We make the most out of a small amount of land using vertical growing techniques and concentrated plantings. Wonderful Utah peaches are available mid-August through mid-September. We also grow cherries, apples, tomatoes, peppers, summer and winter squash, garlic, onions, potatoes, melons, kale, spinach, salad greens, beets, and more. Choose local and taste the difference with 3 Squares Produce.
