Heritage Farm heats things up for November Way Back Weekend
Heritage Farm Museum & Village will be showcasing the industries that fueled the Appalachian progress of the 19th century on November 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for their Hot Fuel, Way Back Weekend. Prepare to engage all senses for demonstrations of glass making, early pioneer pottery firing, apple butter & cider making, blacksmithing, open hearth cooking and more.
“We like to heat things up when the weather starts to cool in November. It’s always neat to see how pottery, glass, and food were made in the early pioneer days. I think it gives everyone a chance to see the things we take for granted today in the 21st century,” said Audy Perry, Executive Director of Heritage Farm.
To attend the Hot Fuel, Way Back Weekend tickets are $15 per adult and $10 child (2 and under, free) or purchase an Annual Saturday pass, which will give entry into every Saturday, including Way Back Weekends, valid for one year after purchase date. Individual passes are $30 each, and family passes, which cover two adults and any child under 18 in the home, are $75.
