Farmland in Utah is chiefly concentrated in the area west of the Wasatch Front, where soils are fertile and streams and rivers from the mountains provide water. In addition, there are productive farming areas in the river valleys. Nearly three-fifths of the non-federal land in Utah is rangeland used for livestock grazing. This has helped make beef and dairy production very important. In 1999 the sale of livestock and livestock products accounted for 75 percent of the farm income earned in Utah.
Huntsville Utah was founded in 1860 by Jefferson Hunt and was incorporated in 1903. The first mayor was L.M. Nelson. A city hall was built, as was an electric lighting system, extending from the dam in Ogden Canyon to the city. Nelson's home is still standing and is on the Utah Historical Register. (At one time it was a restaurant known as the "Valley House."). On December 18, 1909, Huntsville was disincorporated because the City was bankrupt. Also interesting is the fact that originally Huntsville was incorporated as a City, but was reincorporated as a Town in 1924. The differentiation is based on population.

Of course the day to day activities of hiking, biking, swimming, running, etc. further accompany this outdoor environment.
The small townships of Huntsville, Eden and Liberty have seen record growth over the past few years due to the more recent demand for resort based real estate and its overall proximity to the big city. This is largely due to the facts of over 75 Million Baby-Boomers retiring in the next decade, as well as increased property values in surrounding areas such as the Wasatch County (Heber City), Park City and Salt Lake Valley seeing record increases throughout the past few years.
Growth can also be contributed to the exposure that the 2002 Olympic Winter Games brought to the Upper Ogden Valley including Snowbasin Ski Resort which hosted the Men's & Women's Downhill, Combined Slalom and Super G events.
