Living around Amish communities.

These are some sites around town here in Topeka. This is a Amish school and while the kids are on their lunch hour they enjoy playing outside.

This is Tuesday and hay is for sale at the Topeka sale barn. The hitching racks are full as Amish come to buy hay for their horses. As you can see their hay bin is empty and they look like they're ready to eat, and by looking at their size I bet they can eat a lot of hay.

This is the way the Amish pick their corn a little slower then the way we do it, but it is sure faster then picking by hand!! This corn will be taken to the mill for feed for their horses and cattle.

My husband's name is Jed he and his brother Jim are the owners and operators of Hog Back Hill Holstein. They are dairy and crop farmers we live on a 150 acre farm in northeastern Indiana and we are surrounded by Amish farmers.I enjoy working in my garden or one of my flower beds. Jed and I were both 10 year 4-her's and so were all three of the kids. Our favorites were showing sheep and contest horses we went to MANY show. I also enjoy riding horses we are lucky to have many trails through the woods or work in an arena. We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
