Huron County is the most agriculturally productive county in the Province of Ontario. We grow and produce more agricultural product than Canada’s Maritime Provinces combined. Farming is the back bone of our economy and the rhythm of our life is closely connected to the planting, growing and harvest cycles of the land.
The Huron County Barn Quilt Trail was created in celebration of the 2017 International Plowing Match, Rural Expo (IPM), and to mark Canada’s 150th Birthday. At that time, 150 quilts were made in both rural and urban areas throughout Huron County for this beautification process. Since 2017, the number of barn quilts in Huron County has continued to grow and there are now well over 300 of these community artworks scattered across the county.
