Photography Policies

Whether you’re a professional photographer whose specialty is weddings and corporate events or a nature enthusiast who enjoys taking family photos in pastoral settings, Hilltop Farm makes for stunning backdrops.

As a nonprofit with substantial annual maintenance and improvement costs, we appreciate your financial generosity.​

Personal Photography Outside

Although we don’t charge for personal-use photography on our grounds, please consider making a donation of $3, $5 or whatever you can afford. 


We accept donations here.


We simply ask that your photographs are tasteful and respect the rich agricultural and historical heritage of Hilltop Farm.
