    in fact ..
    there's a rather large Amish Population
    close in distance to the farm ..
    it is an easy drive ..
    to get to the Amish Market ..
    (and we also enjoy their Butcher Services .. )
    (they make the BEST Butter and Cheeses .. OH, my .. )

    I live 5 mins from the PA line and about 30 mins from Lancaster, which is definitely Amish country.

    Very interesting, and they do so many constructive things like making furniture.

    I sign every petition I can sign about Amish puppie mills. They seem to have a work ethic but not so much a animal abuse ethnic or a sexual abuse ethnic. However there have been horrific crimes committed against the Amish. I suppose many universities have studied the Amish but no one has applied the studies to the world we live in very well. The Amish have much to offer & they have many things they should quit doing.

    Personally I have been through Amish country a few times. I am not afraid of them. I feel sorry for them a little bit. I hope they are OK. I hope their children & their animals are OK.

    Not yet but I feel funny doing it as if I am going to a freak show. The Amish are keeping their religion and traditions intact. I respect this diversity and I'd like not to disturb them. I would buy their farm products at the local farmers' markets and have done so.

    Not in PA, but there is a community of Mennonites not far from where we live. We love to buy our vegetables there. We have also attended services at a Quaker Meeting Hall in Friendsville, Tennessee!

    There are quite a few settlements in Ephratah, Fonda, Fultonville,Cooperstown area of NY. My wife and I visit their cheese factory in the Nelliston, Fort Plain area.
    I have spoken to some of them and they are friendly. We smile and wave when we pass their carriages and they do so in return.
    I have seen them in parts of Reading area and Lancaster counties but I have not had a chance to speak with them. I hope that I get a chance to do that some time too.
    There's no time for sin and vice living in an Amish paradise.

    On my way back from my first presidential inauguration (January 2009), I felt very nostalgic about America, so I drove through Holmes County, Ohio.

    I was shocked, I actually saw a horse-and-buggy on the street around 8 AM in the morning, in the snow!

    We have many Amish communities where I live...it's quite interesting. I love shopping at the Country stores that they have and seeing the horses and buggies....

    sure have. Hartville, Ohio is not far from here, as a matter of fact the trotters (horse buggy races) are about halfway between hither and yon, or 20 minutes.

    In Nappanee, Indiana.....I like the Amish....they are very content and happy with their lives...don't bother anyone...but have managed to survive quite well with their skills...
    For me, their life would be boring....but they are doing well..they are secure with themselves....something few of the rest of us can honestly say...Good for them

    The most well-known Amish area is in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

    There are Amish communities in other areas of Pennsylvania too, as well as Ohio, Indiana, western New York state, and elsewhere.

    I would like to very much. Would love to try their cooking and maybe get an Amish quilt.

    I would love to have one but I always pass on them. $600 is way too much for a quilt. My mother used to quilt so I have one of hers.

    I have and have done business with them and have worked on construction with. They are wonderful, honest people. If you left a tool out, I guarantee it would be there for you if they found it. I don't agree with their policy of turning the other cheek, but that is their right to their own beliefs.
