The five sisters and their mother stopped at this home for lunch. These folks had been neighbors when they were growing up, so were childhood friends. They even brought me a plate of food. While waiting This team of horses came in from the field so the horses could rest and the man could eat lunch. Then they headed out again in the afternoon, to continue the Spring plowing!

Early Morning Vapor

These cold frosty mornings it is good there is heat in this chicken house, as you can see by the rising vapor.

Early Morning Silhouette

Corn shocks on top of the hill are silhouetted nicely in the early morning. There are still a few Amish farmers her in Holmes County, Ohio, that shock their corn to let it dry before bringing it in from the fields.

Ear Corn

You don’t see much corn in cribs like this anymore. It brings back memories of years ago back on the farm. Of course Iowa farms are noted for their corn. Nowadays farmers usually store their corn as shelled corn, in bins. Probably Amish farmers are some of the farmers that do put away “ear corn”!

Fall Plowing

Plowing with Horses

The days work is done, giving the horses and the farmer rest.

Fall Harvest

Harvesting corn!

Interesting photo, with the chicken house in the foreground, then the cows, and then the neighbor’s farm. I suspect that with this setup the chickens would be classified free-range.

Amish Farmer in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA, still farming with horses, as is typical for the Amish.
