Last week I visited the rolling hills of Knox County, Ohio and just fell in love with the scenery and peacefulness of the place. I’m sure I will be going back. Plus members will be treated to a fascinating series of stories and recipes about the unique food collaborative between Kenyon College and Amish growers. Knox County is a hodge-podge of different Amish orders. This buggy belongs to an Andy Weaver Amish church member. The Andy Weaver church was formed in 1952 from a church split. The Andy Weaver Amish are more conservative than mainline Old Order Amish, but they aren’t Swartzentruber conservative. For instance, notice the orange safety triangle displayed on the back of this buggy. This time of year produce is plump and plentiful and farm-stands are getting rid of the last of their garden goodies. Some forecasts call for a first frost in this part of Ohio within the next 10 days. Brrrr…but these veggies warm one to look at! These come from my new friends at Nisley’s Organic Produce. Hot peppers really are a mainstay in most Amish gardens these days.
