    Default Mennonite Produce Auction

    -horsesmenos-jpgPicked up my yearly supply of pumpkins last Friday at the Mennonite produce auction. They hold two auction a week through the summer. They are my neighbors and the auction shed is just around the corner from my farm. The Mennonite farmer bending over the box of pumpkins is my next door neighbor. That's two of his Belgins pulling the wagons.

    There are a lot of Mennonites in this area. Their produce is great.

    Very interesting. Mennonites mostly left this area. It's a two hour drive to any of the communities I know.
    Thanks for posting.

    The local Amish do the same here in central Ky. Sells for less than you can produce it, however, that takes away all the fun and fresh air involved in raising it yourself. Ken Sweet

    Nice tractor you have there. Looks like a DC. I've got a 47 Case SC in my collection. I've also got a Case grain binder that I plan on putting behind the SC, when I get it running. My icon is of the Allis WD hooked to Case binder.

    There is one near here (Amish), I've never been to one of their auctions, but apparently they do a big business!

    In the last few yrs have been getting Amish from KY,Ohio, and NYS moving up in the north country. Tons of BIG teams pulling plows and farming. I haul Milk for a living. Got 12 Amish farms on the rte now. Steel wheels on the wagons and milk cows by hand. Nice to have people moving into the area and not signing up for gov assistance and then stealing anything thats not tied down.
