I’ve been around the Amish Community my entire life. I was born and raised in Davis County, Iowa. We have a very large Amish community in the area and tons of Amish businesses. There is nothing more exciting, as a kid and maybe even now as an adult, than to see an Amish horse and buggy drive by your house. Always a friendly wave or a hat nod to be seen and there is always that wonder of how they do it. We have cars, technology, electricity, and running water. They live life simply. There is something endearing about watching this simple, yet hard-working community bear the fruits of their labor in the beautiful countryside of Bloomfield, Iowa. I have had the privilege to work with members of the Amish community, and I can say there are hard-working people in the world and then there are the Amish. There are humble, faithful people in the world, and then there are the Amish. There are kind, generous people in the world, and then there are the Amish.
