Yesterday my mom and I went wandering around Amish Country. She said that the Amish were starting to make their wheat sheaves. Since it's been a while since I've taken pictures of those and they are pretty neat, we decided to head that way.
Just a shot of an Amish farm.
I kind of liked the looks of the barn.
You can see the wheat sheaves in the front of the barn. Next post will have some detailed pictures of those.
Somehow I can imagine this being a similar scene in the 1800's.
Another shot of the barn. I tried to get the wheat sheaves and the growth on the side of the road.
The wheat sheaves a little more prominent in this picture.
One more shot of the farm.
A shot of the farm and the plants on the side of the road.
This isn't an Amish barn but I did like the advertising on the side of it. Sadly, barns getting painted seems to be a dying thing.
A closeup of the sign.
As we approached another farm, I saw a goat tied outside.
A closeup of his face.
And something you don't usually get to see.
As I was watching, I realized this was how they started the wheat sheaves. The machine takes them and puts them in bundles and spits them out.
Then I think they come back and arrange them in the familiar pattern.
One more shot.
Another barn on another farm. Although it looks similar to the first one I took.
