WEST VALLEY CITY — For more than 40 years, Fred and Glen Brock have been growing produce and selling it at their produce stands in West Valley City.

They have grown many things over the years, including peppers, cucumbers, zucchini squash, and red potatoes. But these days they mainly grow sweet corn and tomatoes.

But after many hot summers of hard work, they decided this year would be their last.

"It's just 'cause we ran out of gas, is what it amounts to," Fred said.
