At Snipes Farm and Education Center, our mission is to model and teach sustainable farming, while building community and re-connecting people to the land. We envision a world where everyone has access to healthy food, open space and the experience of farming, where local economies are strengthened by the preservation of small farms, and where priority is given to sustaining the earth and its natural resources. As farmland disappears under sprawl, and evidence mounts about the breakdown of natural systems that support life on earth, small groups of people are coming together to envision a new way forward. One such group is the dedicated board, staff, and volunteers of the Snipes Farm & Education Center. Founded in 2008, as a 501(c)3 educational organization, our “outdoor classroom” is located in Morrisville, Pennsylvania. The Snipes family, farming in Bucks County since 1688, has offered the use of the farm for the establishment of our 501(c)3 a nonprofit educational organization.
