Summer Camp Field Trip Visits
At Hilltop Hanover Farm, we welcome summer camp field trips. All visits include a guided education tour of the farm. On that tour, campers will learn about the seasonality of farming, crop production, pasture management, animal care, and composting. Depending on the season and educational tract chosen, campers will have an opportunity to harvest and taste vegetables grown using organic methods. Smaller groups may decide to hike our trails to complete the day.
