Mission: Bridging the Gap Between the Urban/Suburban Community and the Farm

 

Flint Hill Farm Educational Center, Inc. is located on Flint Hill Farm, 26-acre preserved farm in Lehigh County, PA. The multifaceted Agro-Educational facility is actively expanding its programs to meet the educational and nutritional needs of the rapidly growing region and promote the awarenes of being good stewards of our land, water, and air.

Food is the common thread for all cultures.  When the school students, family members and teachers come together at Flint Hill Farm Educational Center, Inc., the question is asked before the tour "How many from this group can remember a parent, grandparent or other relative who lived on a farm?".  Usually 80% of the adults and students can remember at least one family member.  With so much in our present culture that causes individuals and groups to focus on differences, what a blessing to all come together to enjoy two hours of a unifying experience for all ages.  The Educational Center wants to acknowledge the farmers of previous generations and give a special thanks for the families of the Cicion's and Hassick's who farmed here from the early 1910s to 1997.

 Family “farm stays” allow families to experience life “on the farm” together one day at a time. While here visiting “farmers” collect their own eggs for breakfast, help milk the cows and goats, assist with the feeding and handling of the horses, sheep, chickens, pigs and goats to their level of comfort. Get back in touch with the world of your parents or grandparents. Over night accommodations are available at the farm house.

Our farm store is open to the public daily selling pastured duck and chicken eggs, Alpine goat and Jersey cow milk, artisan  cheeses, yogurt, smoothies and fresh cream butter. We are a Certified Raw Milk Dairy through the PA Department of Agriculture and proudly display the PA Preferred labels on our food.
