Utah Organic Farming and How It Affects Us All

(good things utah) For years, Taste Utah hosts have searched high and low for the most delicious and unique dining experiences in the state. They unearthed delicious local gems and connected the community to amazing local businesses.

“We love to tell you where to dine, we love to tell you about the different deals chefs and restaurateurs have to offer,” says Katy Sine, host of Taste Utah. “Utah has such a unique agricultural history.”

In past seasons, Taste Utah has emphasized local brands with a mission to be completely organic and sustainable. During their travels, they introduced us to some notable local businesses, including:

The famous Tagus fruit and vegetable farm

A well-established Utah-based company, Tagge’s Farm offers a wide selection of organic, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables. You can find them at many local Utah stores near you, giving you a quick way to get organic produce straight from farm to table. To watch their episode on Taste Utah, click HERE.

Raj Patel – Writer, Director, Host

“Often when we sit in a restaurant, we see the fruits of a chef’s labor, and even the fruits of a farmer’s labor, but we don’t necessarily think: where does this food come from? What are the hands that cultivate it? And are we supporting these different farming practices that lead to sustainability? »
