Although they are not certified organic, everything is grown using organic methods and organic standards.

Ralph Larsen still lives on a remnant of the Bountiful farm his parents bought in 1938. He has been farming since he was nine and is now 87. Jack Wilbur has been farming with Ralph for 16 years and alone at other locations for six years.

Additional farming endeavors include ownership of a portion of a family wheat farm in Idaho, but is it not actively farmed by 3 Squares.
