Students:  As a Friend of Snipes Farm you could help our programs to reach, educate, and inspire even more children. On any given day, you’ll find farmers tending crops, animals giving us food and fertilizer, and children exploring and learning about the solar panels that power the farm using energy from the sun.

The Farm:  As a Friend of the Farm, you would take part in maintaining this dynamic and beautiful place. Set on a historic 6-generation farm in Morrisville, PA, our non-profit organization has served the community in exciting ways for more than five years.The farm staff grows food for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and our members enjoy organic vegetables and fruit from June to November. 

Community Sustainable Agriculture (CSA):  As a Friend of the Farm you would support this important life-giving work, and help provide needed equipment and materials to reach even more people. Snipes Farm and Education Center builds community through volunteering, and health and vitality in our members by providing diets infused with fresh produce. Sustainable practices improve the soil’s fertility with the help of animals, crop rotation, and cover cropping. 

Giving Back:  As a Friend of the Farm, you will help fresh food reach families in need. Finally, and we think most importantly, fresh food from our farm is donated to Rolling Harvest and Farmers Against Hunger and distributed to area soup kitchens and food pantries.
