The Heritage Farm Foundation is reaching out to its supporters to help fund new projects that will teach both the young and old about the history of the area for years to come. The foundation, which has operated the Heritage Farm Museum and Village since 2006, kicked off its first Friends of the Farm fundraising campaign with a gathering at the farm Oct. 29. "This is the first time we've had a campaign so we want to establish our friend network and raise awareness throughout the community," said Audy Perry, whose parents founded the farm nearly 18 years ago. "It's always been a wonderful museum, but phase two involves the village coming alive with artisans, docents and re-enactors. What Williamsburg is to colonial, we'd like to be for Appalachia."
