My favorite things to do in Amish country!

Attending An Amish Schoolhouse Benefit Supper

One of the advantages to living amongst the Amish is having the opportunity to attend Amish functions. This is something I never had a chance to do while living in California. Benefit dinners are one of my favorite things to do. (I often find inspiration for my books while attending Amish-related events.) Last week, one of the nearby communities had a fish fry that our family attended. The week prior, a different Amish district had a chicken dinner. (See photos.)

Over the weekend, our neighbors held their semi-annual sale, in which I picked up a few goodies for some of my giveaways. We would have bought baked goods too, but they had sold out. I did, however, pick up some yummy dandelion jelly!

What about YOU? Do you live near any Amish communities? If so, do you have a favorite event that you enjoy attending? I’d love to hear about your experiences! (If you don’t live around any Amish communities, what Amish-related event would you most like to attend if you had the opportunity?)

Our welcoming committee! :)

The events are usually well attended. Both Amish and Englisch enjoy the suppers!

Isn’t this little wall hanging adorable? I just might have to hang it up in my writing cottage!

Want to attend the next event?
