Welcome to 3 Squares Produce

3 Squares Produce is a small family farming operation in Davis and Salt Lake counties.

3 Squares grows fruits and vegetables naturally, meeting or exceeding organic standards. We grow on nearly 10 acres, spread over two counties and nine separate plots of land. We have two very small orchards in Davis County, two vegetables fields in West Valley City, in Salt Lake County, and five private resident gardens in Salt Lake County.

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, kale, spinach, salad greens, beets and more.

our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and
pays the freight both ways.

    Spring

    We will do a four (4) week spring season for 2018 starting May 9 or 12 depending on your pick up day. The summer season will start the week following the end of the spring season. 

    Spring shares will mostly include head lettuce or mixed salad greens, spinach, arugula, mizuna, endive, and radishes. Items that may or may not be ready by the end of the spring season include Bok choy, kale, peas and Swiss chard. 

    Spring share = $40.00

    Summer

    The summer season will run 18 weeks. Full shares are usually 2x the size of half shares. But sometimes there are items in the full shares that are not in the half shares because we didn't have enough. One item that comes to mind from 2017 is garlic scapes. We planted more hardneck garlic (the plant that produces garlic scapes) so hopefully there will be enough for all. Summer season begins June 6 or June 9 depending on pick up day

    Summer 1/2 share = $180.00

    Summer Full share = $360.00

    Fall

    Fall Share = $60.00

    Our fall season will run four weeks from Oct. 10-31 or Oct. 13 - Nov. 3, epending on pick up day.

    Eggs

    We are offering eggs again from Clifford Farms in Provo, Utah. Spring season  and fall season eggs are one dozen per week. For the summer season, you may buy the 9-week option and pick up eggs every other week, or the 18 week option and pick up eggs weekly. You pick up eggs at the same time and location you pick up your produce share.

    Spring 4 week egg share = $16.00

    Summer 9 week egg share = $36.00
    Summer 18 week egg share = $72.00

    Fall egg share = $16.00

    Pick up Locations:

    Our pick up locations are self serve from outside private homes. Shares will be staged outside. They will be prepackaged for you. Items that need to be cool will be in plastic grocery bags in coolers. Items that don't need to be cold will be in boxes. Some weeks you will have only a bag or a box, and other weeks you will have both. I try to send an email at least a day or two before your pick up day with those kind of details each week.

    Shareholders must pick one primary location and day for their weekly pick up. Alternate arrangements for specific weeks and change of permanent day or location mid-season will be entertained on a case by case basis.

    We are planning on four pickup locations for 2017:

    • Bountiful--Saturday, 9:00 am to sunset (approx. address: 1625 S. Orchard Drive)
    • Murray--Wednesday, 3:00 pm to dark (Approx address: 5400 S. 450 E.)
    • Salt Lake City--Wednesday, 3:00 pm to dark; or Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (choose one) (Address: 623 E. 1790 S.)

    2013 marked Ralph Larsen's 75th anniversary living at the little orchard on Orchard Drive. Once 20 acres, the place is down to about one acre now, but Ralph still runs it like a farm. Combined with about three acres of borrowed and leased land, 3 Squares Produce Farms, formerly Larsen Farms, is still a going concern. The short book we wrote about the Bountiful homestead from 1938 to present is now available. Below is a link to a free electronic, pdf version. Below that is a link to the publisher's website where an inexpensive hard copy version is available.
