    I’ve never been to a Swartzentruber settlement, I might have to look into that. They’re SO “rustic” though, it almost makes me think of camping. There’s not anything wrong with it at all, don’t get me wrong, in fact it makes me even more curious, but that seems like a tough life. Love the pics!

    Do you know where I can get an authentic Amish crafted buggy?

      If you live near one of the larger Amish settlements, they will have periodic auctions where anyone can purchase a buggy. There is also a newspaper called The Budget – http://www.thebudgetnewspaper.com/.

      Sometimes you will see advertised auctions and/or buggies.
