(Good Things Utah) For years now, the hosts of Taste Utah have searched high and low for the most delicious and unique culinary experiences around the state. They’ve unearthed some delicious local gems and connected the community to some amazing local businesses.

“We love to tell you where to go dine, we love to educate you on the different offerings that chefs and restauranteurs are offering you,” says Katy Sine, host of Taste Utah. “Utah has such a unique agricultural history.”

In past seasons, Taste Utah has put a focus on local brands with a mission of being completely organic and sustainable. During their travels, they’ve introduced us to some remarkable local companies including:

Tagge’s Famous Fruit & Vegetable Farm

A well-established company based in Utah, Tagge’s Farm offers a wide selection of pesticide-free, organic fruits and vegetables.

Raj Patel – Author, Director, Host

“Often when we sit down at a restaurant, we see the fruits of a chef’s labor, and even the fruits of a farmer’s labor, but we don’t necessarily often think: Where did that food come from? Who are the hands that are growing it? And are we supporting those different agricultural practices that lead to sustainability?”
