My recent artwork, Maple Grove Farm has been out traveling in exhibits - this farm is owned by friends in Vermont; here is the story behind it.
Maple Grove Farm, built in 1902 sits high on a mountain ridge in Windsor county Vermont. Surrounded by maple trees, this dairy and horse barn has been in the Maynard family for many years. These beautiful trees are also tapped for their delicious maple syrup production.
Maple Grove Farm has an interesting history….early on a family from the city offered to switch homesteads with the Maynard’s to try life in the country. The family agreed and this experiment continued for a few years! Eventually the families decided they preferred their original lifestyles and switched back. A new generation continues to farm Maple Grove as this iconic Vermont barn continues to age gracefully.
