Blue Spring Farm grows to organic standards, but hasn’t been certified. Tamara and Randy Hed grow all kinds of vegetables. About the only thing they don’t grow according to Tamara is corn because it takes up too much space and is too easy to cross pollinate with feed corn.
The Heds use natural organic fertilizers and no chemical pesticides in the growing process.
“We, personally, don’t like to have a lot of pesticides in our food. We don’t want to eat them. We won’t grow it and sell it to somebody else,” says Tamara.
Tamara grew up in a farming community, and her grandpa was a farmer. She studied ornamental horticulture in college.
“We decided we wanted to grow food,” says Tamara.
Blue Spring Farm products can be found at the Downtown Farmers Market in Salt Lake City. They also participate in a Community Supported Agriculture program that runs for about 18 weeks during the summer and early fall.
Cantu’s Culinary Creations uses Blue Spring Farm as one of the places that it sources its vegetables from.
