Utah Farm Bureau

by Eleven 2. July 2014 10:51

The Utah Farm Bureau Federation, an affiliate of the American Farm Bureau Federation, is a voluntary organization that supports Utah's farms and ranches. One of the many things they do to support Utah farmers is the Utah Farmers' Market. If farmers in our community aren't able to sell their produce, they are unable to continue, and Utahns aren't getting fresh, healthy, locally-produced food. Because of their local competition, farmers diversify their crops in order to gain more attention to their booths, which benefits you with a wider variety of fantastic produce.
