The Farmer’s Daughter at Hillcrest Farm

All of the produce, food, plants, shrubs, trees and beef sold to you at Hillcrest Farm are locally grown and sold directly to you from our Garden Center/Farm Stand, “The Farmer’s Daughter.”

Our theme, “We grow it, so we know it” emphasizes our desire to provide local farm freshness to our customers.


Year Round

All Year: Our beef herd is being cared for all year long. In the good weather, the beef cattle (Simmental and Polled Hereford) are grazing in the pastures. In cold weather they enjoy the comfort of the “beef barn”. Our beef is grass fed, no hormones, stress free. It has a wonderful flavor.

We believe in providing our customers with fresh local food so in addition to great beef, we offer local milk (Elmhurst Dairy – Millbury), local eggs (Johnson & Son Farm – Westminster), local goat cheese (Crystal Brook Farm – Sterling) as well as a large selection of preserved fruits, spices, relishes, jams, jellies prepared by our local ladies.

We invite you to visit our farm. We are proud to provide you with the food/plants produced on our farm and sold directly to you.

Spring

Spring is the time of year when all the greenhouses are buzzing. Seeds and plugs are being planted to provide a wide array of annual flowers, perennial flowers, herbs, vegetable plants, trees and shrubs. Our perennial flower selection is the most extensive in the area with new varieties being added each year.

Summer

During the summer we continue to add even more flowers, trees and shrubs to our collection. Summer is also the best time to plant herb and vegetable gardens, landscape your house and plant your fruit orchard. Our selection is outstanding and not only includes our own vegetable plants but Burpee vegetable plants, Sarah’s herbs and Plants that Work herbs.

Fall

As the spectacular color of fall arrives our crop selection changes. Our pumpkins (8 varieties) and winter squash (10 varieties) are being harvested, corn stalks are being cut and happy fall plants such as perennial Mums, bright Asters, stately Heucheras, giant perennial Hibiscus, long blooming Hydrangeas, rich appearing Rose of Sharon arrive. We have everything you need for a beautiful fall yard.

Winter

Winter is the time of tradition. At the Farmer’s Daughter, we believe in tradition, it is a wonderful place to find the Peace of the holiday season. We offer eight varieties of Christmas trees, decorated or plain wreaths, swags, kissing balls, roping and cemetery baskets. Our Christmas shop is filled with ornaments and unique gifts.
