    Thanks for the information about this fairly new community. I’m going to add it to my list of Amish communities I’d like to visit.

    I, too, hope they prosper. I’d also like to see photos (should anyone go there) of it during the “green” part of the year.

    Is farming their main occupation (dairy or otherwise, being from Wisconsin)? How many people, total, live there now? It’s interesting to follow their progress, and good to hear another family has settled there.

    Tripp, South Dakota Amish

    Tom took a trip to Tripp. Thanks, Tom!

    An article titled, “Amish Furniture Tradition Alive In Tripp,” was written in Oct. 2013. Another article said that some of the local neighbors speak German.
    “South Dakota is home for many father-son businesses, but few are as unique as the furniture making venture found east of Tripp, where Amish father-and-son Amos and Levi Borntreger work together to create high quality, unique pieces of custom-made furniture.” “Country Woodworking is the name of the Borntreger’s business, located at 28381 414th Avenue east of Tripp.”

    If you can forgive seeing a Pennsylvania gray buggy at the beginning and end of the 3:43 video, an article from 2010, “The Simple Life,” is about the Tripp, SD Amish.
    “Every other Saturday, one of the Amish families hosts a bake sale that draws people from Tripp, and beyond.”

    And for Alice Mary, two photos from 2010:

    Thank you, Linda! (April 1st, 2014 at 20:27)

    Thank you, Linda!

    Thanks for sharing the photos. It’s nice to see green in the fields and trees leafed out. The photos with the original post made the area look so barren…now I can understand the attraction for moving there for more space.
