The Hill family legacy in the Northeast Kingdom spans 8 generations, stretching back to the arrival in Greensboro of father and son, Peleg Hill Sr. and Peleg Hill Jr., in 1788. The history of the Hill family includes the founding of Greensboro and North Greensboro, the building of its first roads, mills, and its first tavern in 1809. That tavern—owned and operated by Aaron Hill—has direct connections to modern day Hill Farmstead Brewery, with our logo taking inspiration from that original tavern sign.
Over the decades, numerous family members have worked the land in and around Greensboro, including Shaun Hill's grandfather and his 13 siblings, all of whom were born and raised on the land upon which sits Hill Farmstead Brewery today. For much of its history, this swath of land has been working dairy and crop farming and continues in active agricultural use, producing forage hay for Tom Hill's cows.
