Backyard Urban Garden (B.U.G) Farms is a top 40's heavy but mostly medium listening, muckraking Community Supported Agriculture project that aims to provide the freshest, tastiest, sustainably grown vegetables for our patrons in bustling Salt Lake City.  Following the innovative and practical SPIN farming model, we cultivate a constellation of backyard plots that equate nearly an acre of urban farm-lets that have enabled us to feed up to a 100 families and select restaurants.  In addition to growing produce, we also whip, stew and squeeze-up a keen selection of prepared soups, packaged foods, and juices
