Part of our mission at Snuck is to be a force for good in our community. A portion of that process is to find more ways to connect you with the highest quality food in the local marketplace, and to support others who are trying to do the same.
Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of working with New Roots, an agricultural program operated by the International Rescue Committee (IRC). The New Roots program provides newly resettled refugees opportunities to “celebrate their heritage and nourish themselves” by participating in a variety of farming possibilities. Part of the New Roots initiative is a Micro-Training Farm Program, where over 36 refugee farmers, from a variety of countries, are able to grow on IRC-owned farm land and market a variety of their crops. Each vegetable sold provides a greater opportunity for their family to become more self-reliant and economically independent.
At the Snuck Farm Shop, you are able to support these refugee farmers through the purchase of their produce. When available, we will be sourcing fresh vegetables from their farm for you to enjoy. We hope you will join us in continuing the support of these local farmers as they work to establish a new home in a foreign place.
You can learn more about the New Roots program and how you can support the work they are doing here.
Produce will be available for purchase Monday-Friday 9am-6pm or Saturday 9am-1pm at the Farm Shop.
