Country Farm

A Cultural Experience in Amish Country Indiana

Anyone who is not from the Midwestern United States probably has not seen a lot of Amish people. In fact, a friend of mine from Australia recently told me that Amish people are more legendary than factual where she’s from; they’re like leprechauns or unicorns. Not so in the state of Indiana! Indiana is full of the rich legacy that comes from the Amish. Now take a tour to Nappanee, Middlebury, or Shipshewana.

As you first drive into the township of Nappanee, Indiana, you will observe the 19th century storefronts, filled with bakeries, great family restaurants, and even home decorating boutique stores. A mix of a active business district and serene countryside, Nappanee was once called one of “America’s Best Small Towns” by TIME publication. You won’t wish to miss some of their most famous attractions like Amish Acres Farm and Heritage Resort. Roam the grounds of the 80-acre farm and experience all the wealthy history that they have to offer. All ages will love the big family meals, wagon rides, and witnessing first hand the manufacture of brooms, quilts, and much more! If you’re looking for a more quixotic evening, there is an available romance option at Amish Acres starting at $179.00! Plan your trip now and stay awhile.

Middlebury is one of the lesser-known towns when it comes to Amish communities, but there is still a lot to see and take in when you visit. Take a tour to the historic business district and visit the town butcher, the hardware store, and other proud shop owners. Also, don’t fail to remember to take the journey down the 17-mile Pumpkinvine Nature Trail, taking you right through the center of town along Krider Gardens and crossing the Little Elkhart River.

One of the most famous Amish towns is Shipshewana. Experience Amish traditions like you not at all have before, when you visit more than 95 specialty shops in the bustling village of Shipshewana. Home of the Midwest’s major flea market, this town has the whole lot to offer from horse and buggy rides through town and into the countryside, to awesome entertainment choices such as the Mousetrap Puppet Theater, the Blue Gate Theater, and the Hostetler Hudson Auto Museum. You can as well find out the reasons behind the Amish and Mennonite lifestyle by visiting Menno-Hof. understanding their entire story by hearing the fascinating history of their origins in Switzerland, their arrival to America so many years ago, and their present location in Indiana.
