We're Planting the Seeds. . .


... for an educational center at Hilltop Farm where everyone benefits from the lessons of the land and its beauty.

George M. Hendee of Indian Motocycle (the "r" was originally dropped) fame founded Hilltop Farm in Suffield, Connecticut, in 1913. Friends of the Farm at Hilltop now owns the 7.9 acre farmstead and holds a long-term lease to manage the adjacent town-owned open space.  The farmstead and the open space are part of the Hilltop Farm Historic District which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
