Snuck Farm to Donate Annual Plant Sale Proceeds to Local STEM Education

SNUCK FARM of Pleasant Grove, Utah announces it’s Annual Community Plant Sale on Saturday, May 7 to be held at 504 W 1100 N in Pleasant Grove at 8AM until 1PM or until the plants are sold. A large variety of heirloom and other varieties of vegetable, herb and flower plants will be competitively priced for sale.

Heirloom plants grow from seeds handed down from generation to generation and are pollinated by insects or wind, without human intervention. The goal for the plant sale is to engage the community, promote local food production, and offer interesting, heirloom and other varieties of vegetables not readily available in the big box stores and other nurseries in the area. All plants available at the sale were planted from seeds and grown on-site in their greenhouses.

The farm specializes in growing all types of fresh greens for the local marketplace. Their produce can be found in restaurants and cafeterias throughout Utah County and is also available direct to the public at Good Earth Natural Foods and the Salt Lake City Farmer’s Winter and Summer Markets.

Snuck Farm works to produce the freshest, highest quality food in the local marketplace and to teach and promote industrious ideas about healthy food and sustainable, community-based food production.  The farm can be booked as a private venue for events such as small-corporate meetings and outings, team-building activities, farm-to-table cooking classes and dinners, and intimate gatherings or holiday celebrations.  Cooking and other community classes are also done at the farm.

The hydroponic systems at the farm are being used to grow pesticide-free produce using ecologically sustainable methods in technologically-sophisticated, climate-controlled greenhouses. The method can produce more than four times the yield using 90% less water than traditional farming. They provide customers with a reliable, year-round, local supply of produce grown under the highest standards of quality and food safety.
