Beautiful Country Home

Taking Notes

Hydroponic Fish Farm Tour

The upper photo is of a plow that is manufactured locally for the Amish, many who use horses for their field work. In the lower photo, you see a plow in action!

Snow

A beautiful scene of an Amish farm. This photo was from Valentine’s Day, here in Ohio, but we also had a layer of snow on the ground, this morning, five days before it is officially Spring! Stay Safe!

Dusty Lane

Serene country farm in Ohio. This sect of Amish think gravel, would be a luxury, not to be indulged in. Or for sure, concrete or blacktop for their driveway. Of course not much could hinder the passage of a carriage (buggy)

The Amish farmer who bought this farm in 1998, is glad he decided to continue with the apple orchard, instead of dozing the trees, and having a dairy farm!

Snow Arrives

My attempt at taking a photo of this Amish farmer in the field with his team of horses, fertilizing with cow manure. I thought it would be a nice addition to the corn stalk shocks! It is unique, though you might need a magnifying glass to see the farmer. It doesn’t help that there was a post between the horses and me! I am still pondering whether to get a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000.

Amish Barn-Raising

They didn’t want people getting up close during this barn-raising, and since I don’t have a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000, this is the shot I got this morning. this event might only happen in this community, once in three years. Two weeks and one day ago, the original barn was on fire. This is how it looked at 9 am this morning. I suspect it was finished by the day’s end. The Amish church community got together, and by today the farmer had another barn! For years this was done without the help of the machinery, to lift the rafters etc.
