Program Offerings

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

Nature Programs at Hilltop Farm

Summer nature programs offer children the opportunity to explore the out of doors while having fun in a relaxed, safe environment at Hilltop Farm. Participants will learn about nature, science, make friendships while building self-confidence under the guidance of scientists and teachers.  LEARN MORE

Beekeeping and Honey at Hilltop

The Friends of the Farm at Hilltop did not have a lot of luck with our first attempt at beekeeping, so for 2016 we're partnering with New England Apiaries. LEARN MORE

High School Workdays

Since 2015 Hilltop Farm has been the beneficiary of an innovative partnership with Pine Meadow Academy of Windsor Locks.  High School students from PMA receive public service credit for time spent working on the farmstead and in the tow-owned open space. LEARN MORE

Community Gardens

For the past 15 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.
