This 150 acre farm was purchased by Morley`s parents, Henry and Edna Hodgins in 1927. They had mixed farming and raised 6 sons and 1 daughter.
Morley and his brother Norman bought the farm in 1964 and they fed beef cattle and grew cash crops of corn, wheat and white beans.
Morley married Jeanette in 1965 and together they raised 2 sons and a daughter, all who live in this area. Morley and their eldest son, David began working together and carried on raising beef cattle and growing the cash crops. David now runs the cash crop operation of the farm.
Jeanette has been quilting since 1993. She had no difficulty choosing a Barn Quilt design, as she has always been enthralled with the stained glass windows in all the churches she has visited over the years. ”Cathedral Window” was a must for this quilter! The colours of burgundy red, lime green and cream were chosen to stand out on the grayish steel of the barn.
Jeanette and Morley`s granddaughter, Emily chose the design-“Maple Leaf” for the shed, as a tribute to our Canadian heritage. Both designs were well chosen!
