I wrote yesterday about my stop in the Preble County, Ohio Amish settlement. My second stop was to turned out to be a visit to a Preble County, Ohio Amish refrigerator!
I was enticed by a sign advertising local honey for sale. I can rarely resist stopping at a home-based Amish business. It really is the best way to learn about Amish culture and a win-win for everyone. If there is a sign advertising fresh eggs for sale or honey, then obviously they want people to stop by to buy. And that's a great time to take in the surroundings and start a conversation with the proprietor. Time is money and I find many Amish especially sensitive to that adage so I try to to be quick in my engagements. If I buy a $2 plate of cookies and then I expect the Amish person to stand there and talk to me for a half hour, that's not really a fair trade. The Amish are like anyone else: they're busy. Anyway, I was enticed by the sign of local honey for sale...
Visit a Preble County, Ohio Amish refrigerator!
When I pulled into this Amish home on Wolverton Road in Preble County I saw a refrigerator sitting on the side porch. Turns out it is a little "refrigerator self-serve shop", which I thought was so fun.
A HONEY OF A SELECTION!
Definitely worth exploring Wolverton Road in western Preble County, Ohio to experience the growing Amish ambiance there!
