Hunt Hill Farm in New Milford has closed.  Also known as “The Silo”, the cooking school, museum, and art gallery, closed its doors on Monday.  Hunt Hill Farm was an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.  The Board of Directors determined that revenues were unable to keep pace with expenses and not enough money remained in the general fund to continue operations. Hunt Hill Farm dates back to 1968, and was owned by New York Pops founder Skitch Henderson and his wife, Ruth. It became a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2013.  83 acres were preserved as open space.
