Promoting Agriculture, Conservation, and Preservation

Program Offerings
Hilltop Farm is a community resource for education.  The Friends are excited to be able to share these programs with the community:


Community Gardens
For the past 19 years FOFAH has been working with local farmers, state and federal agencies to prevent erosion, and improve and maintain the soils in the open space at Hilltop. The FOFAH board is delighted to be able to share the farmland with the local community, offering garden plots to individuals, groups, and families. Have fun and enjoy gardening at Hilltop Farm.  Learn more.

Participants will learn about nature, science, make friendships while building self-confidence under the guidance of scientists and teachers.  Learn more.

High School Workdays

On "The Great Hill" sits the landmark Hilltop Farm, a classic dairy barn. Designed in Colonial Revival style, it covers 18,700 square feet. The upper story haymow and two massive grain silos were typically filled to the rafters. Feeding and bedding stalls were on the lower story, along with a milking parlor and creamery. The finest materials available in 1914 were used to build it.
