    I didn’t think I’d been to that many, but when I looked at your list, I’ve actually been to 21 including two you haven’t been to. (McBain and Evart, MI). I was surprised at how many I HAD been to. I wouldn’t have thought it was that many. Anyway, where next?

    Kevin – thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into researching your articles. I am a nurse, and for many years, one of the nurses would cut out the Amish Cook article from the newspaper, and hang it up at the nurse’s station for all to read. You can imagine how long ago that was! Now, we continue to enjoy it on line. I just wanted you aware there is a large Amish settlement in Jamesport, Mo (northern Mo.). Stop by if you are every driving through. They’re very friendly. My brother sells them a lot of hay each winter for their horses. He says that they will be unloading the big bales with rope and horses, all the while talking with him about the weather forecast or upcoming crop season! Continue your good work! Sue

      Thank you for the kind words, Sue….Jamesport is probably the largest Amish settlement I’ve never been to…I definitely want to make it there someday!

    In the last couple of years, we have had the pleasure of meeting and working with several Amish families both close to us and far away. We live in NE Oklahoma and have a couple of small communities close to us, Chouteau and Welch, OK; Bartlett, KS; we’ve also been to Saint Charles, Minnesota and Liberty Kentucky. All of them made us feel very welcome and invited us into their homes!

      You’ve been to several Amish settlements that I’d love to visit, they all have variations and customs of their own….Liberty, Kentucky is closest to me of the ones you mentioned.
