Amish Store:Farm Oaks Produce Near Keytesville Missouri

When hubby and I traveled to Missouri, we noticed that they have road signs of buggy. It is a common road sign in Amish country. I was in great awe upon seeing the sign because it would mean, I can now see a real Amish (face-to-face). Few years back, I saw a movie about Amish and I admire their way of life. My brother-in-law told us about the Amish store in nearby town. The picture below is the first Amish Store that I ever went to.

Amish people are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. They only marry the person within the faith. Ordnung is the rule of their church and must be observed by every member. The rules cover most aspects of day-to-day living such as limitations on the use of power-line electricity, telephones and automobiles as well as clothing. Most members do not accept government assistance such as Social Security. They have their own church, their own school and their own way of life.

Before we arrived the home of my brother-in-law, hubby and I were lost. We drove to a dirt road and we can't find our way. We were lost in the middle of nowhere. We saw plain houses with buggy parked outside their property. We don't see anybody .... not a single soul. We drove around the area ( really lost our way) for 45 minutes or so. Then, we saw a car finally... and we asked for direction to Lake Nihai in Keytesville where my brother in-law lives.

Anyway, back to Amish Store … hubby bought some cheeses. My sisters-in-law bought some Amish baked foods and chips while I have caramel popcorn. The store is full and most of their products and produce are from the Amish community.  The  salesladies were young Amish and they were wearing their traditional clothing. They were pretty and friendly. I enjoyed my little shopping in the Amish store.
