    Very nice!! I enjoyed the tour..I hope Aster gets the kitchen playset! Is Wickey a common Amish name? It’s one I’ve never heard.

      Barb, Wickey is a pretty common last name in some Amish settlements, namely the Swiss Amish of Berne, Indiana….this settlement is sort of a daughter community, has a lot of family ties with Berne….Wickey is a convert, someone with the last name of Wickey joined the church generations ago and the name has spread in some settlements….

    As it turns out, I was less than a mile from this store last Sunday during a “Sunday drive”. After seeing a number of Amish folks in the area, I turned to Google to learn if there was a significant population and that’s how I found your article. Now I’ll need to return so I can check out the store. (Plus, it’s a beautiful area for a drive!)

      Welcome to Amish365, Teehan…You should go back, that community and Wickey’s in particular will give you a truly authentic Amish experience unsullied by the tourist buses, etc. You live near there? I was amazed at just how rural and hilly that area is!
