Amish Barn Charm

All of the photos here and elsewhere on my blogs enlarge when clicked on.

That being said I thought I would show this barn we came across up north near Shipshewana.
I thought I would zoom in for a somewhat closer view...doesn't it look like such a busy place. And you just know they are productive.
And below is the view from the side...quite a big place
We were stopped, and I was actually out of the vehicle getting this shot. I looked on down the road and here came an Amish buggy. I thought I would just get in our Rav and us be on our way. When we actually passed the buggy it had a couple young boys in it, and they were smiling real big. They were pulling a small jon boat behind the buggy!

I am posting this for Tricia's Barn Charm Meme...I hope you have a barn to share!

I love the white barns against the green. Such a big barn as well. Probably a stupid question but what is a jon boat?

bon bon said...

TexWisGirl said...

looks like a huge and well-used place for sure!

Love the bottom shot. Very nice job using the trees and fencing as a frame.

Ginny said...

This is the biggest barn I have seen you post so far, and extremely well kept!

George said...

This is one of the larger barns that I've seen. The story of the boys towing the boat with their buggy is cute.

Wonderful. It's so nice to see well-kept working barns. Life is good in the country. :)

Angela said...

What a neat story about the Amish boys! That is a very big barn! Looks like it would be 3 stories tall.

Mama Zen said...

Super pics, Rose. I love the second shot. Life is all around---the bike, horses and trappings of family.
I hope the boys had a good time. MB

Lovely barn and yard. Seeing the boat being towed by the buggy must have made you do a doubletake!

Neal said...

That is a nice barn Rose. I think the first shot is my favorite.

Tricia said...

They know they have a nice place & they knew what you was taking the pic of, huh! It sure is beautiful... the horses are an added bonus & I like how you framed the last shot.
Such a gorgeous roomy big ol white barn, love it! =)

Thanks, Rose

That is a serious barn! Actually, it looks like a little barn village there. What a beautiful day too.

A fine shot of this huge Amish barn and complex. The few Amish farms I've seen have all been very neat and well organized. This one is no exception. Fine shots.

Beth said...

So clean esp. for white--it's obviously well-cared for and greatly valued--the way it should be. The whole place looks happy and as you said: productive.
This was a great find.

As for the buggy and jon boat---we have a lot of that here. I will pass them on my way to work. There are a lot of Amish living around Seneca Lake here in southeastern Ohio and fishing the lake is a big deal for them.

Oooh, Rose! That second photo is my favorite.

Ms. Becky said...

Lovely barn. So clean and white. I am heading into Ohio Amish country in a couple weeks to catch some of my own barns.

This Amish barn/farm is well kept. That looks pretty neat to see a buggy pulling something doesn't it?

EG Wow said...

I am always amazed at how well-kept Amish farms are and how healthy their gardens look.

Mary said...

They do have nice farms and keep everything so neat and tidy. I bet that was cute with the buggy and boat :-)
