The story

Our farm has been in the Steckle family for 150 years, the original parcel being purchased in February 1867. The farm has passed down through 5 generations of Steckle’s. The early years had a water powered saw mill located on it For years it operated as a mixed farming operation, but in the last 50 years has had fruit & vegetable market gardening and now a greenhouse business. This quilt was chosen because a greenhouse business was started by Dave & Carol in 1973, on this farm and is being carried on in the next generation. Currently 3 generations of Steckle’s work in the greenhouse potted plant business known as Huron Ridge Acres located on the family farm.
