Earth Day at Quaker Farm

Earth Day at Quaker Farm, a Quaker inspirational video, was created to share the importance of sustainable living choices as they relate to climate change. Our earth is precious and we need to take better care of it. We hope our Earth Day video inspires you to cherish the planet we share. Please pass it on, we hope it can be of use to others, especially perhaps elementary school teachers and home schooling families. Viewers especially like the horse birth and the muscovy duck hatching from an egg!

Barn at Quaker Hill Farm, Alcona County Quilt Trail Project

The Quaker Farm barn is a host site for a Alcona County Quilt Trail Project. We have a 8'x8' quilt block with the "North Star" design to commemorate the life-saving work of the Underground Railroad which the State of Michigan and Quakers played major roles in.
