During my visit to Tennessee this weekend my mom, my grandson and I went to a produce market owned by an Amish family. This family bought a farm which adjoins a farm previously owned by my mother's family. The trip itself was a beautiful drive along a winding road through
Around every bend in the road awaited more delights.
A lot of beautiful weddings and receptions are held at this wonderful place we passed along the way.
I guess they'll finish this fence later.
Fresh eggs for sale. Self serve, eggs were in an ice chest and a box was provided for payment.
This lovely cow needs milked! She's waiting patiently.
They have such a beautiful garden.
This is the Amish community swimming pond. It is lined with a canvas like fabric and has a filtration system of some sort. They don't use electricity. There is a platform and a rope swing. Some little boys were swinging out and dropping into the pond. I took this picture from the road, then turned down the drive beside it. I walked over and ask the adult with them if I could take pictures of the children swimming. He said, "We prefer you not take pictures. We believe pictures are to be of objects not people." So, I didn't take any more pictures of them and I edited the children out of this picture out of respect for their belief. But, they were beautiful. They wore knee length pants and tank tops to swim.
Roomy airy chicken coops.
Flower beds in front of building.
I didn't take any pictures of the beautiful building with its wide front doors and wide side door opening onto the deck providing a cooling breeze inside.
There were too many people inside and I didn't want them to think I was taking their picture.
Bounty from their garden.
Buttermilk Soap, Peppermint Salve, Corn Relish and Pinalope Preserves (Pineapple & Cantalope)
Banana Bread and 100% Pure Comb Honey
Lots of good fresh food from the Englewood Community Farm Market
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed a beautiful day.
