The Farm


“My ancestor, Ephraim de St Joer built this log cabin near Clover Utah. He later sold it to the Orr family. In 1989 it was relocated to Gardner Village, in West Jordan. Today it serves as a small shop, and is well cared for.” —@ferroequine

"One of my favorite locations I found this year for photo shoots is at Gardener Village. I first went there to shop at the antique store...I found some beautiful treasures here at #auntelsiestrinketsandtreasures like my antique, hand-painted French tea cup set. I’m a little apprehensive about sharing my favorite spot because I want to keep it to myself but it’s a beautiful space.” —@chelsea_captures
