The first Amish farm inhabitants arrive.

IMG_0206

Last week we arrived at the Farm from Stonington to see our first Amish inhabitants. They were in a newly created pasture fenced off with barbed wire. The smaller horses are used for tranportation while the draft horses are for farming.

Our new farmers, Enos & Barbara Miller, are now in a race with the weather. They are busy cutting the trees (from the Gingerich property down the road) and milling the lumber to build the structures they need. Right now they will build a medium size building that will house winter shelter for the horses, their farming equipment and a small 24′ x 24′ dwelling space for themselves. The outhouse will also be under the same roof. Since they will not need electricty or plumbing of any kind, building the dwelling will go fairly quickly.  In the Spring they will have a barnraising for the larger barn structure.
