Assist New Milford in protecting and preserving our surviving farmlands

Our Mission!

Hunt Hill Farm Trust, a cultural, culinary and countryside nonprofit endeavor is housed in a repurposed 19th century bank barn. It was founded in the early 21st century by famed 20th century bandleader Skitch Henderson and his wife Ruth with a mission of “cultivating love of the land, food and the arts.”  The red heart on the upper left corner of the barn quilt block symbolizes “love”; the flower in the upper right hand corner, the “land”; the basket of fruits and vegetables in the lower left corner, “food”; and the artist’s palette and musical notes in the lower right corner, the “arts”.  The 137-acre farm complex was created by the Hendersons in the 1970’s by combining two adjoining farms, formerly owned by the Hine and Buckingham families.
