Schmidt’s Farm and Greenhouse is a locally owned and operated family farm. We are
one of only a few urban farmers left in the Salt Lake Valley. Our Greenhouse knowledge
lends itself to farming by growing our own tomato plants, pumpkin plants, pepper
plants and squash plants. In the greenhouse we also grow beautiful bedding plants,
hanging baskets and planter pots. On the farm we grow 45+ acres of the best sweet
corn in valley, 6 acres of tomatoes, and 30+ acres of pumpkins. We also grow squash,
peppers and melons. What we don’t grow i.e. peaches, we bring in from LOCAL farmers
from Brigham City to Alpine Utah. We work hard to provide you with only the best
local produce and greenhouse plants.
Welcome to Schmidt’s Farm and Greenhouses
The Schmidt family has lived in West Jordan Utah since 1911. Grandpa Schmidt decided
to move his family in order to raise them on a farm. His Grandson Richard, farmed
sweet corn as a hobby and would employ his children to sell the corn on the lawn
of the home he grew up in on Redwood Road. Soon, the popularity of the corn grew
and he decided to start farming full time.
Our New Greenhouse:
Inside our new greenhouses are state-of-the art contracting shade cloths and mechanical
roof panes that open and close to vent the greenhouse. We also now have bathrooms!
And a paved parking lot! We are also wheel chair accessible. Not to mention 12,000
square feet of floor space, chock full of beautiful flowers, pots, hanging baskets,
perennials, succulents, vegetable plants, potting soil and garden decor. It is beautiful!
Our Old Greenhouse:
There are things that we will miss about our old greenhouses; they were a hidden
gem, like a secret garden that was so fun to discover. So many people would find
us and say, “I never knew you here!” Stepping inside the greenhouse was like stepping
into a tropical oasis on another world. The good news is that it is still the secret
garden and tropical oasis that you have enjoyed in the past!
