Plain Kansas

Rosanna Bauman, age 25, is German Baptist Brethren. She is a writer, farmer, and speaker and lives on a rural Kansas farm she shares with her parents and 4 siblings. The Brethren Church, is often mistaken for Amish or Mennonites, but the Brethren have different historical and theological roots. The Brethren Church is a "Plain" church. Members dress plainly and, like the Amish, are pacifists, but they do use cars and phones.

    Please thank Rosanna for this wonderful article and photographs. In the hustle of daily living it is so relaxing and gratifying to read articles of this type and that is why I will continue to subscribe to your emails.

    I am wondering if Rosanna would be willing to sell me one of her cooked turkeys for my family’s Thanksgiving table.

      Thank you for the kind comments, I know Rosanna appreciates it.
      Hmmmm, I have my doubts she could get a turkey to you in time…I know if you were in Kansas, she could.
      But you can try calling Bauman Farms at 785-448-2239….tell Rosanna or whoever answers that I told you to call:) – Kevin
