    Maybe not Lipton’s tea, but “ditch tea” (peppermint) certainly. Every Amish home I’ve been to served either coffee or peppermint tea. The article just doesn’t ring true. Probably someone just cashing in on the interest in all things Amish.

      Agreed, Joyce, something is “off”

    I live in Hutchinson, a 10 minute drive from Yoder-I agree, the blogger had some weird things to say-other discrepancies I noticed besides what you did, Kevin-the Yoder Amish do NOT wear dresses with flowers on them-NEVER! Also, they do not have a church. Yes there is a school the Amish kids go to-but they meet in homes, never a church. I’ve never heard of the Grandpa Bed n Breakfast, but that could be possible I guess! Most likely, tho, it would have been called a Daudy Haus! Seemed like the blogger had a pretty good imagination!

      Joyce, you make a good point about the flowered dresses, that is not something I’ve ever seen an Amish woman wearing….and if you haven’t heard of Grandfather’s and you live there then I am even more dubious than I was!

    Re: Amish country visit. I do not know if this person was informed regarding Amish not wanting their pictures taken. It seems a little insensitive for him to do so. Perhaps he was not aware of it at the time. One year while I was in Tn. visiting my brother he took me to Bowling Green Ky. to Amish land. We went to a stand that sold homemade Amish goods. While we were there I asked the gentleman if I could take their picture, of course he said no. I knew nothing of the Amish, or their rules. I am certainly glad I asked. Sense then I have done a lot of research on line, along with your informative articles I have learned a lot. Thank you Keven.

    I am unable to open the blog noted in the first post, can you help me? All I get is a page to download music.

    I am only vaguely familiar with Amish and their ways, but I have found in my dealings with them that they do not try to hoist their way of life on others, so if there is a B&B in KS and it is run by Amish, I just feel certain that they would still provide coffee or tea for their guests. I love the Amish ways of life and think very kindly of all the ones I have been around and dealt with.

      Agreed, Ledonna, interestingly the post about the B&B was taken down shortly after we featured it, I think it was fiction!
