Like many new Rio Linda residents, Susan and Paul Hanks found a great spot to locate their modern homesteading operation in 2011. The hard-working Hanks produce high-quality, naturally grown, herbs, vegetables, lamb, eggs, and flowers for local restaurants, caterers, and CSA boxes. Married in 2010, the Hanks chose Sunflowers for their wedding theme, and the Sunflower quilt block that now hangs on their barn.
Swing by their place during Spring and Summer for some great produce, and get a good view of the Sunflower block from the road at 340 W. U Street.
When Debra and Martin Gonzales decided to decorate Rock’n G Ranch, Debra knew exactly what to do. As a member of the Rio Linda Elder Craftsmen Quilters, Debra spends a lot of time designing and creating quilts to benefit the community. Her choice for the barn: Joseph’s Coat, a traditional pattern from her favorite Bible story. With help from the design team, Debra chose colors that blended with her barn, her roses, and her love for the traditional pattern. “It represents strength and perseverance,” said Debra, who worked with the team to create the block. A final touch of purple added four yellow and purple butterflies to this very colorful barn quilt. Joseph’s Coat and the Rock’n G Ranch are located at 6240 W. 6th Street, in Rio Linda. Get a great view of Joseph’s Coat from the roadside just north of the ranch.
