Greener Pastures: Why farmers are moving to Millard County

Several farmers who used to till land, raise crops and run cattle in Salt Lake and Utah counties now do those things about 100 miles to the south. Urban sprawl and commercial development during the past 30 years in the state’s two most populated counties and neighboring counties forced full-time farmers to rethink their operations. Some profited by selling land in northern Utah to developers. And with those profits, they purchased less expensive land farther south in spacious, sparsely populated Millard County.
