Trip to Amish Country

Yesterday we went to spend the day with Hubby's brother and sister-in-law who were spending a few days down there.  On the way down to meet them it got pretty foggy.

This was our first stop. The truck patch.  They have fresh baked goods and vegetables and fruit.  They also have lots of animals you can pet.  

They also have wagon rides to the pumpkin patch and buggy rides.

Here is a very large work horse.  This is hubby standing by him.

Lots of Pygmy goats.  These look like Terry's neighbors goats.

Large bull.

One day old baby Pygmy goat. 

Large long horn steer.

Two day old baby pygmy goat having his breakfast.

Can you see the goat on the roof?  They have a ramp they can climb from the pasture to the roof.  You can feed them by way of a bucket on a rope that goes to the roof.

Next stop was Ashery's bulk food.  I always come out of there with lots of good things.

We then went to Kidron to Lehman's hardware.  They have anything you could ever want and then some.  Lots of non-electric items for the Amish.  From there we went to Walnut Creek for a late lunch at Der Dutchmen.  Great food.  This picture is the view off the parking lot to the north.

Then we just drove for over 2 1/2 hours on back roads enjoying the views.  It was a good day but very long for me.


  1. It sounds like a long day, but you had great weather for it! :0)

  2. I loves going to the amish, the little come running out from everywhere,we take them candy. sounds like you had a good day.

  3. I wish we had a store like that near us. I find I am using less and less electrical items just to keep the bills down. Next item is a bike with a cart so I can bike 7 miles into town for the shopping lol. Fantastic day out: wish I live closer lol.

  4. I would have loved to have gone with you! looks like you had a great time. That horse is big! I would have loved to have seen him in person. I have never been to a dry goods store like that, what fun that would be.

  5. Looks like you had a wonderful day. That blue sky is amazing after the fog
