    Here is the height of irony, an Amish general store, possibly hardware store, with a web site, specializing in non electric living. http://www.lehmans.com/ If that doesnít send you back to bacon maple ice cream I donít know what will.

    We could have a pilgrimage there or any of the many high percentage of Amish people towns, but there are at least two problems. They stay away from the towns on weekends because the tourists are looking for them. They do not like their pictures taken for religious reasons. I have ethical problems with us violating that religious preference even though I donít personally agree with it.

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

    I guess we'll just have to leave the cameras at home - Amish butter, cheese ... I wonder if they make ice cream too?

    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.

    Seems to me like a gas powered freezer would be cheating ... shouldn't it be wood fired, or maybe hand crank?

    Lehman's is south of us.
    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!

    I think you need to reevaluate your priorities.

    Non-electric ice cream...harumph, I'm awfully young and I remember how to do it:
    • block of ice in a gunny sack
    • smack it with the side of an axe
    • put the crushed ice in the wooden bucket with rock salt
    • 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.

    Sounds interesting!

    Tell them we do Amish-style photography.
