You may know them as the home of an adorable goat herd, but there’s a lot more to Upper Saucon Township’s Flint Hill Farm than ridiculously cute ruminants.
If you visit their stand at the weekly Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market in Hellertown, the farm’s talent at churning out delicious dairy products quickly becomes apparent.
Cheeses including goat’s milk manchego, whole milk ricotta, cow’s milk mozzarella, traditional goat cheese (chevre) and a variety of cheddars are available along with freshly-churned butter, pasture-raised eggs, buttermilk, raw goat’s milk, raw cow’s milk, kefir, drinkable yogurt smoothies made from cow’s milk and classic cow’s milk yogurt.
Flint Hill Farm isn’t just a working farm, either. It’s also an educational center which hosts a variety of activities year-round, including summer camps, farm classes and horse riding.
“Our mission is to bridge the gap between the urban/suburban community and the farm,” the Flint Hill website states. “Flint Hill Farm Educational Center Inc. is located on Flint Hill Farm, a 26-acre preserved farm in Lehigh County, Pa. The multifaceted agro-educational 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.”
