NORTH SALT LAKE—Not everyone realizes the food they eat didn’t just appear on store shelves – someone had to grow it. At Cross-E Ranch, one of the oldest cattle ranches left in the area, the goal is to teach visitors about what it means to run a farm.
“It’s an educational thing for us,” said owner Dalon Hinckley. “It’s learning but we make it more fun. We talk about how a farm works and explain when you eat meat an animal has to die. We have to be responsible for our resources.”
In addition to farming the ranch has baby animal days, mega slides, jump pads and hay rides. “Our apple cider donuts are pretty famous and we have caramel apples and kettle corn,” he said. “We grill our own beef hamburgers and other food. Everything is made fresh.”
