At its peak between 1880 and 1910, Sailors’ Snug Harbor was producing fresh vegetables through its working farm. One hundred years later, Snug Harbor is trying to accomplish a strikingly similar task, but with a focus on education. We thought: why not feed, inspire, and educate the local community via our bountiful landscape?
The Snug Harbor Heritage Farm is Snug Harbor's most recent agricultural endeavor. As the name implies, the Snug Harbor Heritage Farm is cared for in an environmentaly viable manner so that it will claim permanence on Staten Island and continue to produce fresh fruits and vegetables for years to come. Currently, Heritage Farm is drastically changing perspectives, increasing awareness about the importance of eating locally, and improving the quality of life for those who live, work, or visit the New York City area.
