Invest in a Utah Ranch for Sale and Make Your Farming Dreams Come True

If you want to be a farmer, then Utah is definitely the place to be. According to Deseret News, sales of locally produced foods are experiencing significant drops all across America, and farms everywhere are growing at a snail’s pace. This seems to be a trend happening nationwide. Everywhere that is, except Utah. According to the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food, strong gains have been observed in the number of farms in the state, and the revenue they have generated, contrary to the national trend. The latest numbers show that the number of farms in The Beehive State—particularly those that practice direct-to-consumer sales—grew by 18.4 percent, from 1,584 in 2007 to1,875 in 2012. Meanwhile, agricultural sales value rose nearly 58 percent within that same time frame, from $10.1 million to $15.9 million.
