Willoughby Heritage Farm

The Willoughby Heritage Farm has become a place where history comes to life through historic structures, original tools, replica gardens, and a restored environment. Groups may visit and see antique tractors, walk through the restored farm house, pet sheep and goats, stroll through trails, and tour the butterfly, produce, and herb gardens. Groups may also partake in a scavenger hunt, presentations on local wildlife, and discussion on the Rain Garden. Learn about the life cycles of bees and butterflies, identify trees, and more!
