Amish Country

We headed to Amish country early yesterday.

The countryside was glorious with all of the Fall colors at their peak.

We found this cute farm store.

With all of my favorite things.

They had all the different species of pumpkins and gourds.

A play area for children.

And all sorts of local Amish foods.

They sell their own honey made by these bees which you get to see working.  Click any photos to enlarge.

Apple Castle was fun!

Their apple orchard was right across the road.

Then we headed down the road to see what else we could find.

We saw lots of cute homes.

Teddy was thrilled to see "big puppies" (cows and horses).

The scenery was breathtaking.

And then I saw field after field where the farmers had done this with their cornstalks.

I want to live next to a field filled with these. More of the trip tomorrow.
