Gorman Heritage Farm is a 122 acre working farm and outdoor education center. The farm, purchased in 1835 by Edward Brown, was passed through the Brown family and eventually, through marriage, to the Gormans. In 1943, siblings Jim and Dorothy Gorman took over the property and continued to farm the land, inviting neighbors, particularly children, to learn about food and farming. Today, Gorman Heritage Farm continues that good work. This farm tour will explore the historic property, including the three original buildings: the Farmhouse, Spring House, and Bank Barn. Visit the gardens, explore the farmyard, and meet the farm’s friendly animals. Before the tour, a biochar workshop will cover the history, production methods, and benefits of biochar in sustainable agriculture.
