About the Educational Center
Our mission is to bridge the gap between the urban/suburban community and the farm.
Flint Hill Farm Educational Center, Inc. is located on Flint Hill Farm, 27-acre preserved farm in Lehigh County, PA. The multifaceted agricultural education facility is actively expanding its programs to meet the educational and nutritional needs of the rapidly growing region and promote the awareness of being good stewards of our land, water, and air.
Food is the common thread for all cultures. When 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 acknowledges the farmers of previous generations and gives special thanks to the Cicion and Hassick families, 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, and 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, ice cream, 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.
