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.

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.

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.

We love Black Island Farms! We have been coming here for years. I have seen others complain about the prices, but you get what you pay for. They are really quite cheap compared to other mazes. There is so much fun to be had, so much to do. They have 3 different mazes, a hay ride to the pumpkin patch where you get to pick your own pumpkin (included in price) as well as slides and swings, turkey and pig races. I highly recommend bringing your family out here!!!!

The best part about it is that it’s open Sundays (literally the only patch that is!). But even with it being the only one that’s open, it wasn’t overcrowded at 2PM (in fact, the tractor ride and two smaller slides didn’t even have lines). There’s parking on both the West and East sides of the street, but the maze and everything are on the West side. When you first walk into the gates, there are ticketing booths to the South and the Hayride line to the West. Buy your tickets first before going to the Hayride. Once past the ticketing booths, there is a small “farmer’s market” with several types of squash. Then comes The Courtyard, a big open field surrounded by pens of animals (calves, turkeys, pigs, goats, chickens/roosters, geese), a Turkey Race track, Piglet Race track, tire swings, three sizes of slides (slick plastic sheets overlaying haystacks or the largest is a big tube 2.5 stories up), a barrel tractor ride (adults under 250lbs can ride, too!), a corn kernel “sandbox,” and one little food truck. There’s live music by the food truck, which was kind of unfortunate placement in that ordering was made more difficult by the loud music. The food is a bit overpriced and my chicken tenders were still cold in the middle, but it was palatable. The Corn Maze is fun, though by this last weekend there were well-worn “shortcuts” from people just walking between the stalks, so it wasn’t as challenging. Overall, we had fun and my toddler nephews loved it, so we have made note to go back again next year! Maybe we’ll try to the Hayride because it looked fun (and it’s not a bad deal since it comes with a pumpkin that you pick out on the ride).

I was surprised at how much fun this place was to spend our Halloween. There was hardly anyone here. We played endlessly on the slides, loved the little train (we went twice), and had so much fun we didn’t even get time to go in the corn Maze. The hamburgers were DELICIOUS which I wasn’t expecting. We hung around the bonfire after dark and were very happy we spent our day at BIF.
