Geocache Description:

The Green County Barn Quilts project started in 2008, and by the end of 2010 the 100th barn quilt was installed. Barn quilts are painted wooden squares (designed like one block of a real quilt pattern), generally 8 x 8 feet in size. Some are located on "working" barns, and others are displayed on "retired" barns. It's not as challenging as geocaching, but hunting for the barn quilt locations is a true adventure in experiencing the roads less traveled of the Green County countryside.

The Huffman family farm land was purchased in the 1870s by Jacob Huffman, Jim Huffman's great-grandfather, and the barn was built in 1900. The farm has been in the family for many years, and the current owner, Jim, is the fourth generation to farm the land and use the barn. The original function of the barn for the Huffman family was a dairy barn. It is now occasionally used to house heifers and dry cows during the cold Wisconsin winters. The quilt pattern is "Wisconsin Star."
