The Far North Quilt Trail was initiated on the traditional territories of the Dena Peoples of the lower Tanana River - we gratefully acknowledge this in thanks to the original inhabitants that stewarded this land since time immemorial.
Hen and Chicks
Calypso Farm and Ecology Center
A collaboration between the head farmers at Calypso Farm and Ecology Center and local artist Somer Hahm brought this design of "Hen and Chicks" to the Calypso's sheep and chicken barn.
Tom and Susan, owners of Calypso, had a lovely children's book titled The Quilt Makers Gift that inspired the design. Together the artist and the farmers selected the colors, and the barn quilt was constructed and painting in April 2021.
The "Hen and Chicks" barn quilt was made possible by the generous funding from the Rasmuson Foundation. My heartfelt and deep gratitude to the Rasmuson Foundation and everyone at Calypso Farm - thank you!
