The Forbes Family Farm

We love connecting people in our community with locally grown food. We sell our produce through a Community Supported Agriculture model where families purchase a membership share and receive a box of fresh produce every week throughout the growing season along with an option to add-on a pasture-raised meat share. We grow over 70 different crops ranging from root veggies and greens to classics like tomatoes and cucumbers. Each week from May through October members receive approximately 8-12 produce varieties. The early weeks of the CSA will feature a variety of greens (lettuce, kale, arugula, spinach), root crops (radishes, carrots, beets, turnips) and peas, Swiss Chard, bok choy, green onions, herbs and garlic scapes. These boxes will be a bit smaller as produce is just coming on here in our high-altitude setting. As we move into the summer, your share will begin to include crops such as green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, summer squash, garlic and strawberries. By the fall we will also be able to include winter squash, apples, plums, melons, onions, leeks, fennel and potatoes.

All of our animals are raised out in the sunshine, moving to fresh grass daily. They are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. Most of our animals are heritage breed stock and are allowed to exhibit all the natural traits of their species. We raise chicken, ducks, turkeys, pigs, cattle and yaks.

We also run a guesthouse and covered wagons through Airbnb that allows us to share a piece of farm life with those looking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle. As a remote property along the scenic Sheep Creek Geological Loop, this is the perfect place for star gazers, outdoor adventurers, garden enthusiasts, and anyone looking to spend time on a working farm.

We’re passionate about teaching people how to confidently cook farm to table meals at home, so provide a variety of online courses and resources teaching people how to stock their kitchen, acquire the best ingredients, build a seasonal menu concept, and enjoy the Farm to Table experience at home.

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.

        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.

This is an adorable country store! The atmosphere draws you in. The food sold here keeps you coming back. Make sure you try the ice cream, it is the BEST. And the ice cream may seem a little pricey, but the portions are enormous!

Wilkerson Farm

Wilkerson Farm produces a variety and fruits and vegetables in the summer exclusively for donation to local food banks and pantries. We invite members of the public to donate towards the direct growing costs and also to volunteer on harvest days. How is this different than donating directly to the food bank? The vast majority of donations given to food banks are shelf-stable, canned, and pre-packaged. Fresh and healthy food is often inaccessible to lower income families due to cost. We are able to grow bulk crops and improve the quality of food they receive.  Every dollar donated here can help us provide 10 pounds of produce!

Wilkerson Farm hosts a Fall Fair each September through November that includes a carnival, hayrides, corn maze, and pumpkin patch. We create a safe & fun environment for families of all ages to experience the beauty and bounty of local farmlands.

Our family went to their pumpkin patch/corn maze and had a magical night! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! The rides were fun, the activities were great, and it was just the right size for our family to really enjoy without feeling overwhelmed and crowded! The grandchildren were in heaven and even my grown children had a ball! We left with a little pumpkin for each of the kids and everyone was thrilled! Thank you for providing a great night!
