Amish Community

Travel to a tucked away hidden corner of earth, a Beautiful Amish Community secluded from the rest of the world; extremely retro and delightful. Amish and Mennonite families often make and sell products, giving us a glimpse of their unique way of life. I have never been to an Amish Community until I moved here and it’s wonderful just like what you see on TV They sell live animals, goats, chickens etc.., hand built sheds (very up scaled) and last but not least their Farmer’s Market. The Farmer’s Market have the best organic honey money can buy and the gentlemen who run the place are very nice and humble. It’s a joy to visit this lovely community and I go every chance i get.

The journey includes  hiking, swimming on John Muir trail along Hiwassee river with wine tasting at Morris Vineyard for only $120 per person.
