Maple Leaves

The quilt depicts a solid, eight-pointed star in its center with stylized maple leaves in each corner. This design highlights maple syrup production, representing one of a number of agricultural products produced on this working farm. The farm is named for Adam Smyrski who emigrated from Poland in the early 1900s.  It was a dairy farm until the mid-1980s. In 2008 the farm was donated to Weantinoge by sister and brother Sophie and John Smyrski, the last remaining children of Adam Smyrski.  Currently, the 220-acre property is a working farm producing hay, livestock and maple syrup, and is used for environmental education programming.
