Richard Lovekin came to Canada from Cork, Ireland in 1796. He had been granted 1200 acres in Clarke Township which is now part of the Village of Newcastle in Clarington. Lovekin Farm, an on farm market, is the next generation of the family heritage of agriculture. The sunflowers and vegetabes represent the ” crops” grown and the mules are to pull a covered wagon. This quilt shows a strong family heritage to community and agriculture in Ontario.
