Description

Founded in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) educational organization, our "outdoor classroom" is located in Morrisville, Pennsylvania. The Snipes family, farming in Bucks County since 1688, has offered the use of the farm for the establishment of our 501(c)(3), a nonprofit educational organizatio

History:

In 1682 James and Joan Burgess Moon immigrated to Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Led by William Penn, they accompanied a wave of Quaker refugees fleeing religious persecution in England. These Friends hoped to live a "Holy Experiment" in the New World, where political and religious freedoms would allow the Light in every person to shine. Born of James and Joan, the Snipes family are direct descendants of this movement. They have resided at the present Snipes Farm since 1808 and are the 11th generation to farm in Bucks County. The Snipes family has generously offered the use of their farm for the establishment of Snipes Farm & Education Center.
