The Amish grow a lot of fruit. They grow a variety of fruits, including apples, peaches, pears, plums, and cherries. They also grow berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. The Amish use their fruit to make jams, jellies, pies, and other desserts. They also sell their fruit at farmers markets and roadside stands.
CAPTION: Homemade blackberry crumb cake.
The Amish are known for their high-quality produce. Their fruit is often smaller and juicier than store-bought fruit. It is also more flavorful. The Amish are also known for their sustainable farming practices. They do not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, which can harm the environment.
If you are looking for fresh, high-quality fruit, then you should visit an Amish farm. You will be sure to find a wide variety of fruits to choose from. You will also be supporting a sustainable farming practice.
With spring in full swing and summer not far behind that means Amish menus are tending towards fresh fruits and veggies. Early items like rhubarb will give way to more and more fruits and veggies as the weeks pass.

CHERRY PIE AND CHERRY BARS: Cheery cherry recipes,Cherries are a staple in Amish kitchens. I wanted to share this photo of a beautiful cherry pie that comes from one of my favorite Amish bakeries, Mary's Bakery, in Pfieffer Station, Ohio. Doesn't this pie look yummy amazing? The sugar-coated crust tempers the tartness of the cherries. SIGH, I know you all want a recipe, but I don't have Mary's cherry pie recipe. I do, however, have a couple Amish cherry favorites which I'll share. Enjoy! click here!
HOMEMADE BLACKBERRY CRUMB CAKE: This is a supe recipe. Blackberries are a juicy staple of summer on many Amish farms this time of year.The beautiful berry finds its way into jams, spreads, salads, and even cakes. So in the spirit of the season, Rachel and I tried to make homemade blackberry cake last night. The recipe comes to me from Union Grove, North Carolina, a rather progressive Amish community and one of the only ones in the Tarheel State. I remember tasting this, so full of flavor, a perfect summer dessert!
