Come on down here where I live DP, we are surrounded by Amish. It is not unusual to see them shopping in Wal Mart here either.
When I lived in Iowa for a short time, I bought some ice cream from them at a county fair. When I saw men in suspenders rolling out wooden barrels and hand-churning the ice cream, I knew it was going to be good! And, it was the best I've ever had.
My greatgreat paternal grandfather left the sect he was in (I believe it was called "the River Brethern") started our family during his 'rumspringa' (sic) a time when youth are permitted to leave for a short time to see the world.
I guess he liked it a bit too much and never went back!
My aunt and uncle still live in the heart of Amish country, Lancaster County, PA. And yes, I've had their hand churned ice cream, butter and whatnot. Actually, they made their own potato chips! Those were awesome, totally fattening!
they are always there when people are in need.. this is nice in todays society as most people dont want to help out another fellow human being
This has not always been so. Its just recent that they have come out to enjoy more " earthly things and comunicate with people in there own comunities. Years past they did not mix with the public, and would shun outsiders .
I, along with my DH Dustin used to work at an AMish furniture store here in Northern CA. Our boss, my husband's best friend's dad owned it and knew a bunch of Amish folkes in Holmes County Ohio. It was the best, solid Oak or Cherry furniture that money could buy... in fact, our wedding present from them was this awesome oak table I'm typing on now!
Roo--my family had a camp in Mifflinburg, Pa. Right in the heart of Amish country....my grandfather was Penn. Dutch. We passed through there last year to show my Southern husband all the beautiful land and farms. He loved it.
