Comments

  1. I must say, I admire the tranquility of their lifestyle, and understand why they live the way they do. Out here in California, it does get crazy. So when my daughter and her husband found peace on a Native American reservation my wife and I also made it a place of refuge for us to escape to. Not only is the quiet a beautiful experience but to look up at the night sky and see the wonder that God has made is quite moving. To live in harmony with our fellowman as well as nature is a blessing

  2. i am bringing my grandchildren 11 & 12 to lancaster area next spring & would like them to see how the amish live & work we would like to say for 2 nights on a woking amish farm any suggestions? Thnaks!

  3. Why are all these Amish posing for pics? How real is this?

    • I’m not sure what you mean by “these Amish”. No Amish posed for any pictures on this website. Generally, you’ll find that the Amish do not pose for photographs. They believe that doing so violates the second commandment. Learn more about what the Amish believe.
