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.

Owners & Farm Manager
Joe and Paula Sargetakis looked for a 2 acre piece of property for ten years to build a city farm. During the ten year search, they immersed themselves in the processes and business of farming, attending classes at Utah State, our States Land Grant College, as well as Colorado State. They visited various wineries and farms every chance they had while traveling. This allowed for fruitful conversations with those actively doing the work so they could understand why and what processes worked for them.
Frog Bench Farms started actively farming in 2012. The main goal of the farm is to be sustainable in approach while educating the community and providing a rich asset to the local ecosystem.
