About Us / Beck Family Farms History: The market is officially open from the first of September to the first week of November, but some of the experiences we offer are available almost any time. We usually have fruits, summer vegetables, and eggs available by the end of July but not enough to justify setting up the market. If you're in the area during the off-season, call ahead. We also take orders for pumpkins, hay, and straw all summer. The peak of the harvest is late September to mid October. We sell in any quantity you can imagine, from a single juicy plum to truckloads of pumpkins and squash. The market is always closed on Sunday.The Beck Family has been farming and selling produce in Centerfield since the valley was settled in the 1800's.Our pioneer ancestors farmed and built the first store in town. Today there are still 4 generations of Becks working on the farm. The current Farmer's Market has been operating for about 30 years. At first the Beck kids would load up a red wagon and pull it 4 blocks to the lot where great grandpa's store used to stand by the highway and sell to neighbors and travellers to earn a few dollars of spending money. Eventually enough people knew about our produce and the market was moved out to the farm. It took nearly 10 years to gain enough customers to sell the produce we could raise on one acre. Fortunately the demand for fresh, local produce has grown and this year we will deliver 2 million pounds of jack-o-lanterns directly to Utah's grocery stores. Our pumpkins always arrive fresh at the store because there is no middle-man and we pick and deliver them ourselves. If you're as picky about fresh produce as we are, then that's not fresh enough and you'll be happy to know that anyone can come to the farm and buy our produce fresh from the vine, stalk, or stem. Pumpkins are our commercial specialty, but the Farmer's Market is so much more. There is too much to list, and it is fresh, and entirely seasonal, so this is just a list of the most common produce. You can find up to 100 varieties of squash and gourds including a lot of heirlooms, all being sold within a stone's throw of the fields where they grew. We offer sweet corn, hand picked and always fresh - in fact, yesterday's corn is fed to the calves and chickens every morning. There is usually fresh fruit from our trees, but if it is out of season you can buy mom's famous homemade jams, jellies, and preserves that were made earlier in the year. We also have a mini-baler and sell several sizes of straw bales for decorations. Hay can also be baled into a daily ration size for horses, but you must pre-order because we have plenty of demand for our hay in 1000# bales for local dairies. Most of the produce is grown on our own farm, but we do invite our neighbors to offer surpluses from local gardens. It is hard to know in advance what they will bring, but usually there are tomatoes, peppers, more fruits, fresh local meats and eggs.Beck Family Farms is not only a great place to get fresh produce, but we are happy to share our peaceful rural experience with your family. There are covered patio areas with picnic tables, horseshoes, volleyball, kids play areas, and a fire pit. There is an acre of flower gardens with paths for you to wander and enjoy. We often host family reunions, youth groups, and even a few weddings. Local elementary kids enjoy a field trip that includes mini-golf, picking a pumpkin from our patch, and meeting some of the farm animals for about the price of school lunch.In the 1990's the Beck kids came home from college one summer and decided to design and build an 18 hole miniature golf course complete with a waterfall, koi pond, mini-cathedral, pioneer fort, and a golfer's outhouse.If you can't make it to the market, ask your Utah Smith's, Albertson's, Harmon's or other grocery store if they carry local produce from Beck Family Farms.
