During May 2021, we broke ground to begin an exciting project that will better serve our visitors and customers as well as provide additional space for our educational programs.
The Hillside Pavilion will be in the vacant area behind the Mercantile, near the Greenhouse. This open-aired wooden structure will provide comfortable seating for up to 70 individuals. While Hillside has numerous picnic tables and benches throughout the farm’s public footprint, we understand the need for seating closer to our ice cream parlor, Dairy Store, and Mercantile.
At the Hillside Pavilion, customers, students, and guests can gather to enjoy an ice cream or other items sold here at the farm. The pavilion will also provide a space for respite, free from the elements, after walking the grounds and visiting with the farm animals.
Hillside Pavilion is made possible through the generosity of a private donor. No public funds or donations from individuals were used for this construction. We are offering a unique opportunity to help support our education programs while honoring a loved one. Hillside Pavilion will include Frog Furnishings ecofriendly tables.
These tables are created from a minimum of 30% recycled material that is 100% postconsumer. The tables are sturdy, comfortable, built to last, and better for the environment. They will not chip, peel, or release harmful vapors into our air. In short, Frog Furnishings tables are consistent with Hillside’s mission.
Your donation of $1,500 to Hillside’s Green Guides Education Program for Vulnerable Children will secure one table of your choice. This table will include a custom plaque, tastefully engraved, that will remain in perpetuity. Here is a wonderful opportunity to honor someone who has made a difference in your life; someone whose life deserves reflection and reverence. Honor a wedding, a significant milestone, or achievement unique to your heart. Businesses are welcome to partake as well!
To donate and secure your table, please visit our donation page, select the "Choose Your Own" Donation Tier, and enter $1500.00. Or you may send a check to:
