AMISH FARM AND HOUSE

The two mama goats above, Raven and Cilla, and their respective twins were from May of 2017. 


In May of 2018 Raven, the black goat, had triplets.  Our queen goat, Gracie Leah, also had triplets.  And Tessa, whom you see a few photos above wearing her "Therapy Goat" vest, is now full grown and on May 29th totally surprised us with quadruplets!  First quadruplets we've ever had at the farm, at least in all the years I've been there!  It's not the best photo, but I think you can make out all four:  Teddy, Tommy, Tillie, and Tiny Tim (the little white one, one of the smallest goats we've ever had).  All are doing fine, including little Tim.

 There aren't many things cuter than a baby pygmy goat!

The farm has countless patches of clover all over the place.  If you search long enough you just may find a four-leaf one.  It's pretty easy to spot the one in the left photo, a little tougher to discover the one in the right picture.

If you back on this page you'll see our lone ginkgo tree in a number of the photos.  It doesn't always look green!  Following are some shots from later on in the season.


From the beginning of April through the end of October, Monday through Saturday, I'm the "Resident Woodcarver" at The Amish Farm and House, a well known museum farm in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Guests from all over the U.S. and many foreign countries visit this site that is tucked right in the middle of all the 20th Century hustle and bustle.  The farm brochure says "Where Today Touches History."  Very true!

The main part of my shop is the back third of this barn, but, besides a lot of old farm equipment that is on display in the front of the barn, I have  a number of pieces displayed in the front two thirds of the barn.

Bring a bag and you can take home all the ginkgo fruits you want!  (We'll even supply the bag!!)  NOTE:  The fruits don't smell good at all, but what's inside the seeds is supposed to make your I.Q. go up about 40 points!  (Hummmmmm)

 (We're very careful to never tell him the meaning of his name as it relates to chickens.)
