I love being connected to my food source and spending time on the farm away from computers, cell phones etc...
The Amish here in Minnesota are a more conservative branch. They use only wood to heat their houses, no gas, absolutely no electricity. So even in the summer they heat up the wood burning stove for baking, canning and heating water for dishes or laundry. I never complain about house work after a visit to the Amish.

In June their milk barn burned down. They lost 3 cows and all of their laying hens. It was an arson case and 3 teenage boys were charged. This kind family quickly forgave and announced that they were offering prayers for the boys involved. A very forgiving culture.
