    Good morning Kevin, I have always been interested in the different colored Buggy tops. We have visited this market many times. You will find all colors and types of buggies. Just had to share. http://amishamerica.com/big-valley-auction-at-belleville/

    Having lived in Ohio/Pennsylvania growing up, I loved to ride through the Amish towns and see all of the different styles of buggies that each had. Most Amish can tell just by looking at a buggy if it is one from their district or from another district. To me, except if they were a different color, they all looked alike. However, to the Amish, they were different if even in a very slight way.

      You are correct, Melissa, most Amish can tell where another Amish is from even from the slightest buggy variations…I’m not that good yet:), although I can generally narrow down good guesses as to where a buggy might be from from the style…

    Kevin thanks for such an interesting column and some great recipes. I’m wondering if any of your readers could provide me with a source for Cinnamon Pickles? While driving thru NY state many years ago I stopped at an Amish farmhouse where many baked goods and many canned goods were being sold. I bought a jar of the pickles and they were wonderful! I cannot find them anywhere!! 🙁 I live near Plain City, OH. ..(lg Amish area), visited Berlin area, often, and IN area, but no Cinnamon Pickles to be found! Thanks for ANY help! Joy

I love that you actually know what they are..most people don’t. If you want,send me your mailing address via Kevin’s email(I hope that’s ok!)and I would happily send you a jar!!
