“On the Great Hill” is the expression George M. Hendee (founder of Hilltop Farm) used to describe the location where he built his magnificent Georgian Revival-style barn in 1914. It is estimated that the enormous white oak was planted around that time. FOFAH has adopted this as a symbol for defining the potential of an idea like a tiny acorn, growing strong.

Many thanks to everyone who voted for The Hilltop Farm entry in the “Historic Barns of Connecticut” Photography Contest this summer! Our “friend” Ray Pioggia won viewer’s choice with his image in the Black & White category! This “dollar-per-vote” fundraising event served to net over $7,000 in support of the group Preservation Connecticut. The proceeds from the sale of the original exhibit framed print will be gifted as well.

Preservation Connecticut supports groups and projects like Hilltop Farm with valuable professional conservation resources.
