CSA Farm Highlight: Backyard Urban Garden (B.U.G. Farms)

Written by Desiree Van Dyke | Wednesday, 31 January 2018 15:34

Backyard Urban Garden (B.U.G. Farms) farms is located in Salt Lake County. B.U.G. Farm’s model is based on cultivating large, unused backyard plots in an urban setting to produce food for the Salt Lake City community.  B.U.G. Farm’s customers live within 5-10 miles of the farms.

B.U.G. farmers are experienced organic gardeners that have been gardening since 2010. The certification process can be burdensome and many organic farmers, like B.U.G opt not to certify.

Carly Gillespie, Farmer and Co-owner, has been involved with B.U.G. Farms since its inception in 2010.  An experienced organic gardener, she has experience with gardens of all sizes, and even helped start the small, organic, Duckelberry Farm in Beaver Creek, Oregon. Carly currently serves on the board of directors of the Slow Food Utah. She also coordinated Wasatch Community Gardens’ educational workshops and community events, providing thousands of Salt Lake residents with the knowledge and skills to grow their own food organically since 2009.

Coleman Riedesel, Farmer and Co-owner, born in Salt Lake City, UT, has been farming "off and on" since 2010.  Inspired by his experience as an intern at Flying Cloud Farms in Fairview, NC, Coleman returned to Utah in 2011 to join Sharon Leopardi at B.U.G. Farms. He is delighted to be in the fields farming and even more excited to be the co-owner of the B.U.G. Farm since 2015.

B.U.G. farms typically provides 100 CSA shares per season (spring, summer and fall). They offer home delivery as well as pick up locations in Salt Lake City. Shares include 5-12 vegetable and herb verities per week and come in re-usable bags. Additional fruit and egg add on options are also available. Depending on which option you choose expect to pay between $325-$600 for the season. They have a great You Pick Flower event as well as volunteer opportunities for those who are interested.
