The Hill and adjoining land were
part of the original gift of land and
money made in 1881 by Charles and
Augustus Storrs to establish what is
now the University of Connecticut.

Today Horsebarn Hill is a multipurpose
shared landscape. It is part of a
working farm operated by the College
of Agriculture, Health and Natural
Resources in support of its teaching,
research, and extension programs. The
fields are used for pasture and to grow
corn and hay for the College's livestock
(including cows that produce the
milk used to make the ice cream you
may be eating right now!).

Hay is harvested throughout the
summer and into the fall. Corn is
chopped in the fall and preserved
as silage.
