Midwestern family farming of the
Willoughby Heritage Farm is more than just a piece of property. As part of the Collinsville Area Recreation District (CARD), the land has become a place where the history comes to life through historic structures, original tools, replica gardens and a restored environment. Along with the barns, farm tools and live animals, farm staff and volunteers have created over three miles of hiking trails in the woodland and prairie.
Willoughby Heritage Farm has been made possible thanks to grants from Madison County Parks and Recreation Grants Commission, Madison County Planning and Development, IDCEO/Department of Energy and other organizations, as well as volunteer asisstance from area scout troops, the University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners and the Timber Framers Guild.
