The Farm at Spring Creek was recently added to the Appalachian Quilt Trail. In homage to the farm’s patriarch, a retired Lieutenant Colonial in the Army, the quilt square displayed is an 8’x8’ red, white and blue, heritage snow crystal. It is located at the entrance to the farm hung high on the barn for all to see. It is a prelude to the hospitality that waits up the hill for all who visit.
