3 Squares Produce is a small family farming operation in Davis, Salt Lake, and Utah counties. We grow We grow on about an acre in davis Co. 1.5 acres in Salt Lake County and about 3/4 acre in Utah County. The family owns the acre in Bountiful. The Bountiful property is what's left of the old 20-acre family farm Ralph Larsen has lived on for 75 years. Most of the land is in fruit trees, mostly peaches. We have some small garden areas among the trees in Bountiful. The rest of the land we use is leased or traded for produce. We grow a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs for local farmers markets, on-farm customers, and local restaurants. We also run a small CSA. Check out our CSA page for more information on that program.
We make the most out of a small amount of land using vertical growing techniques and concentrated plantings. Wonderful Utah peaches are available mid-August through mid-September. We also grow cherries, apples, tomatoes, peppers, summer and winter squash, garlic, onions, potatoes, melons and more.
The farmer is the only man in
our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and
pays the freight both ways.

As of December 2, 2013, we still have soft neck garlic available: $.50 each bulb. It is still fresh and should last well into winter.
