I mentioned before about our trip to the Amish Community in Tennessee in my Odd Stops Along The Way post. It was really one of the neatest things I have seen.
Some of the homes have signs up that say they have certain things for sale (peanut brittle, apple butter, peanuts, jelly, bread, baskets, furniture, etc). We just pulled in the driveways and shopped from their porch!
This is where they park their ride...
There is an Amish teen hiding in this picture. Can you see him?
The children were all working hard. We went on a Saturday so they weren't in school.
They don't have electricity, but several families have gas generators at their homes.
The Amish do not like to have their picture taken because they believe it is vain to pose for pictures and they consider photos graven images. Out of respect for them, these pictures were taken very discreetly (thus the poor quality of most). Most of them were taken from inside a moving vehicle!
All of their homes looked basically the same. Wonderfully simple.
This tickled me. Their were several buggies & cars in the parking lots and on the road.
I love this picture... I thought every one of the children were adorable.
The scenery was really beautiful.
Anybody know what this is??? I am sure glad that I don't have any personal experience with an outhouse!
This is either their school or church.
This boy was feeding the cane through the grinder for syrup.
We watched him for a bit. he had his eye on my daughter...she was not nearly as amused by this as I was.
Did you enjoy the tour?
Have you ever been to an Amish Community?
