The children representing each of the four families who helped to found The Farm of Door County will be on-hand October 12th to talk about life in the early days of the effort. The Farm bills itself as a living museum of rural America and according to Julie Schopf Heroux no one knew if it would work. It took years to become profitable.
Heroux says she has lost touch with many of the children of the other founding families over the years. That makes the colloboration on this presentation so special. Heroux says she has had a blast collecting different photos and mementos to display at the talk which will happen at Crossroads at 1 PM on Saturday.
