Amish barn charm


Yesterday, I posted about a recent and quick visit to an Amish community.   Red barns are a common sight and they are very large. 


While the Amish don't use electricity,  there was an electric line running along the highway to service those who live nearby that aren't of the Amish community.  You can see the lines in the top of this photo. 


 Large silos are seen along side most of the barns.

A large shock stands front and center in the field on this farm which houses several nice barns.
