Smithfield is a small bedroom community to Logan with a population of 14,425 as of the 2022 census, and lies on the north east end of Cache Valley between Hyde Park and Richmond.

Robert and John Thornley and their cousin Seth Langton settled Smithfield, first known as Summit Creek in 1857.   They were sent to the area by Brigham Young to establish a community on Summit Creek.  Story goes, Robert returned with his wife Annie and spent the first winter in a wagon box.  A Cache Valley winter in . . . a . . . wagon . . . box.   I’ll quit complaining.  So how did it get the name Smithfield?  John Glover Smith became the first bishop in the area and the settlement took his name.  

Smithfield is a great community, close enough to Logan, for work and shopping but far enough away to enoy the quiet neighborhoods.  It is the location of a second temple in the valley for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  Completion date is late 2025, early 2026.

Smithfield has a great rec center, and several parks for all sorts of sports from pickle ball to baseball, reunions to picnics.  Smithfield canyon is groomed in the winter for cross country skiing but is also great for snow shoeing, hiking and fishing.  The  Smithfield Dry Canyon trail is an 8.6 mile out and back trail for backpacking and camping and amazing peace and quiet.

Come enjoy a game of golf at the Birch Creek Golf course, enjoy a meal in one of the great restaurants, or enjoy some quiet time is the beautiful Mack Park.
