Hilltop Hanover Farm and Environmental Center is a working crop farm and environmental educational center located in Yorktown Heights, NY. The farm was a former dairy farm dating back to the 1600’s. Today the farm is a regional education center that offers programs on healthy and sustainable food production and teaches skills for small-scale suburban and urban farming techniques, illustrating sustainable living practices for the region and local communities.
The farm features demonstration models for backyard farming, rainwater harvesting, composting, and greenroof technology. Visitors can hike the farm’s 3.5 miles of woodland trails, picnic on the farm grounds, purchase a CSA share, or produce from our farm stand or at U-Pick during the growing season, attend any of our numerous classes and lectures, and visit our chicken coop and goat barn. Hilltop Hanover Farm offers tours, classes and field trips to school groups, garden clubs, and scout troops.
The center is committed to donating 10% of annual vegetable production to local food pantries and warmly welcomes volunteers.
