Welcome to B.U.G. Farms!
A backyard, organically-grown, urban CSA farm based in Salt Lake City.
Backyard Urban Garden Farms or B.U.G. Farms is a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) based in the Glendale neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah. Since 2010 we have been using organic methods to produce a wide variety of vegetables. Our model is based on cultivating large, unused backyard plots in an urban setting to produce food for the Salt Lake City community. With just over an acre of land we can support 100 members.
Our 2018 Season will begin at the end of May. Check out The B.U.G. CSA link for more information about our CSA.
2018 CSA Season Starts on Thursday, March 31st

Please let us know if you do not receive the email, so that we can make sure you receive the information you need now and the weekly newsletter throughout the season.
