Fort Hill Farms is a diversified farm located in the quiet northeastern corner of Connecticut
in the town of Thompson. Much of the land that the farm owns today comprises the original
land grant to Major Robert Thompson from the King of England dated May 16, 1683 and has
been in continuous agricultural production for greater than 300 years.
Today, Peter and Kristin Orr operate, with three generations of family involvement,
many agricultural pursuits on this scenic and historic site. Once again, milk is offered
for sale from the farm's award winning Dairy herd to the public in partnership under
The Farmer's Cow label. From the peak of Fort Hill a vista of three states can be seen
which makes for a spectacular setting for featuring many unusual plant offerings, an
educational corn maze, and a Lavender Labyrinth for visitors to enjoy. The farm also
grows strawberries and blueberries for pick-your-own.
Fort Hill's pictorial settings have been featured in Yankee magazine (twice), Reader's
Digest,The New York Times (twice), and numerous regional newspapers. The farm has become
a popular destination for people to enjoy. Thank you for your interest, and enjoy our
