Heritage Farm Celebrates Snug Harbor's Agricultural Tradition

Before it was a cultural center, Snug Harbor was a self-sustaining home for retired sailors. Within the 83-acre grounds there was a working farm that produced food for the "Snugs".
In its inaugural year, the two-acre Heritage Farm reflects upon the site's past, producing tons of delicious vegetables which are both donated and sold. In fact, you can buy your own locally grown tomatoes, eggplants, and more from the Heritage Farm on Tuesdays from 2-6pm. Be sure to get there early - they sell out almost every week!
