Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Jade WalkerrIn August, the Payson Santaquin Chamber of Commerce congratulated a little known but much loved Santaquin business. On the edge of Santaquin’s south border lies Little Opee’s Produce and Sales. This business was voted as the Business of the Month for August. If anyone recently went to Payson Market and bought delicious strawberries at a great price, these were brought to you by Little Opee’s Produce.

In 2002, Kristi and Mark Openshaw recognized while marketing a large sweet cherry crop for multiple farmers that people love local fruit and ask for it in supermarkets. Realizing that supermarkets seek volume purchases to be able to meet all their location’s needs and lower cost, Kristi and Mark formed Little Opee’s Produce.

Since then Little Opee’s Produce has grown. In order to provide Utahns with fresh produce year-round, Mark and Kristi began developing relationships with fruit and vegetable growers around the country and outside of the United States. Today, Little Opee’s still helps local Utah farmers sell their crops. However, Little Opee’s now brings fresh fruit and vegetables to Utah from California, Washington, Idaho, Texas and countries throughout Central and South America.
