The story of Snuck began long ago. The farm was first settled by the Fugal family in the late 1800's, around the time Pleasant Grove was first established. In 1945, Boyd “Snuck” Fugal and his wife, Venice, took over and began to cultivate the land where the farm and greenhouse are now located. They raised their children and grandchildren with a love of agriculture and a desire to be community servants. Boyd had been known as “Snuck” since childhood due to his innate tendency to sneak away from the group to play pranks on his friends, as he was known for. Therefore, when his granddaughter, Page, and her family decided to create the farm and greenhouse, the name "Snuck Farm" seemed fitting, as an ode to the past.
Page, a nutritionist graduate from Utah State, and Brian, an entrepreneur who went to the University of Utah, wanted more for their family. They had both always been interested in providing for themselves and growing their own food, and they wanted to experience a slower life and pace, offering something different for their children. Through their desire to cultivate the land, their family, and their community, the idea of Snuck Farm was born.The mission of Snuck Farm is to be a force for good in our community while working to 1. Produce the freshest, highest quality food in the local marketplace. 2. Teach industrious ideas about life and food while promoting sustainable, community-based food production that benefits us all.
With only three acres left of the original property, we want to revitalize the farm, preserve a piece of the family history, and give back to the community. Hydroponic and organic farming methods were chosen to take full advantage of the limited acreage left on the family farm and for its low environmental impact. Snuck Farm is a place to disconnect and reconnect with nature. It’s here that we eat well, and do good.
