Located at 1000 Richmond Terrace, the Snug Harbor Heritage Farm is Snug Harbor’s most recent agricultural endeavor. Between 1890 and 1910, Snug Harbor produced fruits and vegetables from its on-site working farm. A century later, Snug Harbor is trying to accomplish a similar task, but with a focus on education. Heritage Farm at Snug Harbor aims to feed, inspire, and educate the local community through educational programs, workshops, and field trips, and by increasing awareness about the importance of eating locally. The Snug Harbor Heritage Farm is cared for in an environmentally viable manner so that it will continue to produce fresh fruits and vegetables for years to come.
Snug Harbor’s Heritage Farm currently has a partnership with local restaurant, Blue, providing fresh produce directly to Blue’s tables at 1115 Richmond Terrace. Heritage Farm also hosts a weekly farmer’s market, providing fresh, locally grown produce to the Staten Island community. For more information on Heritage Farm, visit http://www.snug-harbor.org/
