Beginning next Saturday my pottery will be available at the Reece Farm & Heritage Center in Blairsville, Georgia. The Reece Farm is open April through November on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm.
The Reece Farm was the home of the acclaimed poet and novelist Byron Herbert Reece (1917-1958).
During his life Reece published four volumes of poetry and two novels. Reece was the recipient of the Guggenheim fellowship for fiction in 1952.
The farm is a place to learn about Byron Reece and about living on a farm in the Appalachian Mountains during Reece's lifetime. Situated alongside Wolf Creek and surrounded by mountains, the grounds have wonderful displays of authentic farm buildings and equipment utilized during Reece's lifetime.
The farm consists of the Visitor Center with Gift Shop, the Reece Writing Studio, the Main Barn which houses farm exhibits and the Reece Gallery, the Corn Crib, the Chicken House, a Smoke House, and the Spring House. This year the farm plans on establishing a vegetable demonstration garden in conjunction with the Blairsville Farmer's Market.
The Reece Farm and Heritage Center is located a mile from Vogel State Park and entrance is free. On the grounds there is also a pavilion available for weddings. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
