This is our one major fundraiser for the year to help support our charitable programs in our community. Each year we donate over 3 tons of fresh, organic produce to people in need. We also provide free tuition for at-risk children to enjoy a summer respite in our Snipes Farm Day Camp. As part of our mission, 10% of all organic vegetables produced at Snipes Farm is donated for hunger relief, given to needy Bucks County families through local social service agencies.
