Snipes Farm and Education Center has received two state grants, with the help of Senator Steve Santarsiero. The grants support Snipes Farm & Education Center’s mission to share produce with seniors in our community and provide education to low-income children through its summer camp program. With the grants, the farm purchased new refrigerated trucks and host 21 children living in the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter as campers for the summer. Senator Santarsiero visited the farm in Falls Township to see the new vehicles in action and meet some of the campers. The refrigerated food delivery vehicle is being used to deliver fresh produce, grown on the farm, to senior centers and partners across Bucks County. The electric UTV is a great way to get around the farm and is helping Snipes meet its commitment to sustainable energy.
