The word 'Kovia' derives from the Inuit Eskimo word 'Koviashuvik' which means, "Living in the present moment with quiet joy and contentment."
Round Barn Video Segment
Enjoy a look at some
of Wisconsin's historic round barns as Tom Laughlin produces a five-minute
segment on the subject for Farmer's Almanac TV, which is found on PBS
stations across the country. Tom shot the story during the Summer of 2006,
profiling the round barns of Vernon County, Wisconsin located in the
southwestern part of the state. These round barns are especially significant
because they were built by a skilled African-American tradesman named Algie
Shivers, whose family helped found Wisconsin's first interracial community
in the 1800's, "Hillsboro", which still exists today.
