    Current trend, for sure

    Small local farmers in my area (though not Amish) do the same thing, supplying everything from herbs to eggs, corn, beef, pork, chicken, flowers, etc. to local restaurants and markets. It’s called, I believe, the “farm to table” trend of supply & demand. Seems logical…hopefully, it’s healthier, although I sometimes wonder about chemicals left in the soil from decades ago (or illegal dumping of chemicals, etc., going on today).

    Nice to know the Amish are able to make a living by remaining on the family farm.

    I read previously that there are less Amish farmers than before, and that more are leaving to industry, service, and small business. I think that isn’t really true. Maybe as a percentage there are less Amish farming, but as a whole there are more Amish farming today than in the 1980s or 1950s.

    The growth of the Amish population means that not all of them can become farmers, but many Amish, especially the more conservative ones are buying up farm land all over the place. They’re buying up farms in NY, Maine, Kentucky, etc. So they’re doing fairly well as farmers and growing as farmers.
