Hilltop Farm was built by Indian Motorcycle co-founder, George Hendee, starting in 1913, as a gentleman’s retirement farm. Today, The Friends of the Farm at Hilltop (FOFAH), our nonprofit, owns 7.9 acres where the “Big White Barn” and outbuildings sit. We lease 76 adjacent, conservation acres from the Town of Suffield through a 21-year agreement.

We’ve been renovating the buildings and maintaining the property since 2004.

Our mission is to:
Maintain a fun, recreational destination for your entire family to enjoy.
Bring this historic farm back to life with crops, animals, conservation areas, and hands-on learning opportunities

Follow the green route on our farm map for a one mile hike to the Connecticut River and back. Other trails connect adjoining property.
Kite flying on our grassy banks is fun for all ages.

Grab your camera for captivating picture taking year-round.

Strap on your snow shoes or cross country skis for an energizing winter trek.

Carry along your binoculars, or use our permanently mounted boardwalk scope, to observe our bald eagles and dozens of other winged friends.

Walk your dog and bask in the serenity of the sloping fields and woods abutting the Connecticut River.
