I love Lehman's! Now we have to go. I could use a new fermenting crock ...

Hand cranked, or perhaps there's a Cuisinart horse powered ice-cream maker. Of course you need a gas or kerosene powered freezer to keep it in, available at Lehman's.

I thought that is what you called me, fermenting crock?
East of us is http://www.middlefieldcheese.com/
Most of the stores and the bank in Middlefield have hitching
rails and piles of manure in the parking lots.
Cheese?! Now you've got my attention. My family used to be in the cheese business back in the 1800's - I think it's in the genes. I love cheese!

Cheese, hand tools, horse ice cream, old crocks - where do I sign up?
Any room for photography next time around? =)
I think you need to reevaluate your priorities.

- put the cream and sugar and strawberries in the inner bucket
- turn the crank... and keep turning the crank... and keep turning the crank...
There is a variation with cream and stuff in a jar, placed in a paint can packed with ice and salt, the can is then rolled/kicked back and forth on the front porch.
True, the Amish don't like having their picture taken, though there are exceptions if you ask first - usually if the picture is taken from the back or is as a 'generic working figure' and taken from a distance. There are all sorts of restriction variations among the Amish: some allow DC electricity but not AC; some allow electricity for the milking operation but for nothing else; some allow 2-stroke engines but not 4-stroke; some allow telephones but only if they are located in the barn. We need to find a sect that allows analog photography but not digital.
Some Amish 'rent out' their farms to painting and photography groups, it usually includes a huge home-cooked lunch. If there is interest I can see if I can locate the family that did the rental bit for my Mother's painting group and we can see if they will accommodate photographers.
