Meet Your Farmer: Riley Farms

Upon returning home after World War II, William Howard Riley developed a taste for the simpler life and began a fruit farm. Now William's son and grandsons Alan, Jordan, and Christopher, respectively, run Riley's Farm Fresh in two locations, 200 acres in Box Elder County and Utah County. "My dad, Alan Riley has farmed all his life and my brother, Christopher Riley began taking over in 2010.  I was teaching school in 2014 when the opportunity to lease an orchard in Brigham City arose.  I finished out the school year and moved my family to Brigham City," says Jordan. Family is very important to the stewards of Riley Farm Fresh. Jordan continues to farm, in part, because he wants to work alongside his daughters when he grows old. This weekend keep your eyes peeled for Riley's colorful selection of cherries, tomatoes, peaches and apples. Photo courtesy of Riley's Farm Fresh Facebook page.
