Amish country, a pleasant visit


Saturday, another trip into Amish Country.

My husband needed a part for his garden tiller.  He was told that an Amish welder and fabricator could get the part he needed.  So, off we went to Chester County, Pennsylvania.

The Amish are honest, hard-working, family oriented people.  They pay taxes and drive their buggy’s and carriages on the highways.

We passed a buggy on the way to the welding shop. When we arrived I stepped out of our truck to look around the area.

In the distance I saw a buggy moving along the county road.  Soon, it turned into the driveway of the fabrication shop and drove past our truck, then turned into a shady spot that seemed to be a designated parking spot in the shade.  I asked the driver if I could photograph the horse and buggy.

“When I am away, you can photograph anything you want,” he replied.

I had heard that the Amish did not allow anyone to photograph them, but while he was taking care of his business, I was able to snap a photo of  this beautiful horse and buggy, that appeared to be new.

As if standing at attention this beautiful horse was patiently waiting the return of the driver.

Looking around the neatly lined up displays I noticed a mower that appeared to be pulled by a horse.  And the boy, still mowing with the mechanical trimmer.  I don’t know what the thing is that has the legs and what appears to be pipe above the tanks.

Notice the metal wheels on the hay mower.

We bought the part for husband’s tiller and back to Maryland.

Look what is in  the road up ahead…..a load of hay, pulled by another Amish farmer.

Driving can be hazardous.  This farmer with a loaded wagon fills the road ahead.

He was close to home and turned into his lane. I had a better look at the huge bale of hay and the two draft horses pulling the load. KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

    • It is both beautiful and peaceful. We are fortunate to have neighbors who are Amish farmers and we do enjoy seeing the young parents and the children. We are so close to the many farms, stores and often see the carriages on the road. It is strange to see some of the very large families have children riding in a red wagon behind the family buggy that cannot accommodate the whole family. Hope to be able to photograph one of those one day.
