In 2023, the fun, family friendly musical entitled "Down in the Holler," will tell the story of Heritage Farm through the eyes of its two original lovers, Mike and Henriella. Former MU professor Jesse Nolan, whose family used to come to the Farm every week prior to their move to Florida, has created a masterpiece. The two-person show is about 40 minutes long and is perfect for presentation to the general public at the Farm and motor coach groups or even as a traveling show to schools and other venues. Jesse and his wife will be premiering the show at our May 6th Spring Festival.
