Amish country

The nearest store to the retreat was a small everything- store, from bulk goods to brooms to diapers. It was an Amish-run store in an Amish area. I loved everything about it! 


  1. I've never been to Amish country, but would love to someday. Looks very quaint in your photos.

  2. Imagine needing to get groceries and when you get to the garage, there's no car but a buggy!! ={ You have to go outside, get the horse and the harness and get it all together and then bring the horse to the buggy and get that all together and THEN you can leave home!! With my luck, by the time all that is done, I would need to visit the bathroom again LOL :^) It truly is a different life style. I wouldn't trade.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I am fascinated by the Amish and love to visit their areas. Once when we were in New York, there was a brochure with a map of Amish farms that sell different things, so we went to a bunch of them. One had swiss cheese that they made, so I got some and it was delicious - not to mention very inexpensive! We also stopped at an Amish house in PA that sold donuts every Saturday - yum yum!!

  4. Looks like a really fun place to stop and shop. Where is it? I might have to road trip.

  5. We have Amish and Mennonites here and there in Iowa. The simplicity of their way of life appeals to me on several levels. We especially appreciate the baked goods, plants, seeds, and other products they sell to the public. Everything is first rate.
    We know we're in Amish/Mennonite country when we see yellow road signs warning us to watch out for horses and buggies.
