Part of the reason for our day trip route a few weeks ago was to look for Amish buildings. We love looking for them – because often the Amish will also have a home store or stand where we can buy baked goods or other hand-crafted or home-grown items. This trip did not fail us; we bought bread, pie, and candy. All healthy and all tasted wonderful.
This blog contains bits of Amish life – buildings, work, and transportation.
First we have photos of Amish homes. Note the large size of the homes with additions — all painted white. Out buildings are often painted red.
Below is a schoolhouse – small and serviceable to a rural neighborhood.
And an outbuilding –
Below is an Amish-run sawmill. It looks like they have been busy.
And then there is farming and haying …
And finally, there is the preferred mode of transportation …
And the end of the day …
And there you have a quick glimpse of Amish life.
Thanks for reading. I hope you return.
