Amish Buggy

The Pennsylvania Amish of Lancaster County are America’s oldest Amish settlement, where thousands still live a centuries-old “Plain” lifestyle. Arriving in PA Dutch Country allows you to step back in time to enjoy a slower, more peaceful pace – one where the horse & buggy remains a primary form of transportation, and where windmills dot the landscape, providing power harnessed from nature.  I had a wonderful experience when I visited an Amish farm and took a buggy ride around their property. 

Come along with me for a ride in the video below.

  1. What an experience. Lots of conservative Mennonites here in Belize who are from the same radical “peace church” tradition as the Amish and many use horse and buggies and plows but a lot use tractors and modern implements and have pickups. You need to bring your camera and photo gifts to Belize to hang with me, gal. You’d burn up your camera with so many photo pops. My little point and shoot just can’t do justice to Belize but just can’t afford a real camera at this point in paradise.

  2. Nice post, Francine. I haven’t seen you around much – are you okay?

    • Hi Pat. Thanks. I was under the weather then got a little tired and had to undertake some other unexpected responsibilities. I was unable to post for about a week and a half. I am just now catching up. Thanks for thinking about me.

  5. A great post, Francine. That buggy ride sure does seem like a nice way to spend some time on a Summer’s afternoon.
