    Visit the village and see how the Amish live, taste their delicious food and ride in their horse and carts. The village came in to being in 1734 and the people lived a simple life according to their beliefs but now they rely mainly on tourism, selling handicrafts, horse and cart riding and a wonderful buffet in the local restaurant. Visit the Farmers market or Museum.

    LOTS OF STONE 2 more images

    by Rich62 Written Oct 7, 2011

    Here are a few photos along the way:

    1. A great old stone structure (a barn? a house? I don't know)

    2. Definitely not an Amish Church, this is the Methodist Church in Bird-in-Hand. The Amish have their services in private homes, if I am not mistaken.

    3. An Amish farmhouse? Maybe yes, maybe no. There are power lines passing by the house, if any of them connect to the house, the answer would be no.

    If you want to see how the Amish live and work you must stop here. Take a tour of a farm and take a ride in one of the Amish buggies. As you will see that the Amish are very hard working people who are dedicated to their families, neighbors and their church.

    You won't find anything fancy in their homes but you will find such wonderful homemade crafts and canned foods!

    THIS IS THE BAKERY 2 more images

    A TYPICALLY WONDERFUL AMISH BAKERY. Fun to browse, fun to sample, great to eat!

    They also have a petting zoo on the premises.

    Favorite Dish: Shoo-Fly Pie! We had never had it until we bought a small pie here and leter wished we had bought 5 or 6 of them. Delicious, and don't worry, there are no flies involved. It is a molasses-based pie, and its wonderful.

    A NICE RESTAURANT

    by Rich62 Written Oct 8, 2011

    A nice restaurant with a full menu plus a buffet. Prices are reasonable, wait staff is excellent. When you see Amish families eating at a restaurant, you know it's a good place, and there were Amish folks dining here.
