Utah County Farms

September 12th, 2012

What would you like to see when you open your refrigerator? At Communal, we could sum up our answer in one word: local.

That’s why we’d like to take a moment to highlight some of the fantastic farms that supply our food. Utah has some great
options for buying locally produced food. Whether you’re ready to go 100% local, or you’re just looking for a better source
for fresh produce, you can do it here in Utah.

In Utah County alone there are more producers than you can count on one hand. Harward Farms grows corn and pumpkins, along
with a whole smattering of fruits and vegetables. You can buy more than just fruits and vegetables here in Utah County too.
Amano Chocolate is based in Orem, and they make some of the finest chocolate you’ll ever taste.

Cook’s Greenhouse and Chavez Farms are also located in Orem, and between the two of them you can find any fruits or vegetables
you’re looking for. Allred Orchards in Payson grows some of the best fruit in the state, and if you’re in the market for a
good heirloom tomato just head over to Jacob’s Cove in Payson. Clifford Farms provides its own unique combination of eggs,
herbs, honey, and more.

If your fridge isn’t bursting open once you’ve visited all those farms, then you must have a big fridge like us! Don’t be
afraid to keep exploring. With East Farms in West Point, and Bangerter Farms in Layton, you can stock up on all the greens
and veggies you’ll need. Then you can head down to Pleasant Creek Ranch in Mount Pleasant to pick up the finest Prime and
Wagyu beef to be found. And don’t forget to pick up some pork chops at Christiansen Hog Heaven in Vernon, they’ve got the
happiest pigs in the state.

We love filling our fridge with healthy, local, homegrown food, and we hope you’re doing the same. So tell us, where do you
get your favorite local food?
