A Sunday night on my front porch.

video--PLAY ME-- HIT THE ARROW BUTTON AND HEAR-On a Spring Sunday night there is a small Amish party down the road. A few young Amish boys and girls playing Volleyball and hanging out. But around 9:00pm things wrap up and the kids get around to go home. One by one the buggies go by with their flashers on and their bass music playing, yes the bass you hear is coming from one or more of these Amish buggies!! All darkness, flashers, a little bit of bass and a whole lot of CLIP-CLOP!!

Jordan was "ALL" hands on when he came to Mirror Lake and Hogback Hill.


Jordan tried everything when he came to Hogback Hill. He helped feed the baby calves and helped make bottles for feeding. Kent shows Jordan a few things about milking a cow, Jordan holds the Tet and pulls trying to get milk. After Jed showed Jordan how to make the bottles and put the nipples on the assembly line started. Soon they were off feeding the babies.




Jordan was very comfortable and confident when it came to riding Bailey. So after he proved his riding ability I let go of the extra lead rope and let him "do it all". *Helmets are offered and available but not required.








Jordan takes time to play with the farm kittens.

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.
