A Ride Through Amish Country

Ginnie BakerI live in an area with numerous Amish communities. We regularly have buggies and wagons going up and down the road, the horses' hooves “clipping and clopping” as they go ….

We also do business with the Amish in the area, from chainsaw sharpening, purchasing tractors to buying fresh produce and baked goods.

Here are a few photos I took on one of the recent drives to Fisher’s Engine Shop, owned by a local Amish family.

I hope you enjoy the scenery!
