    Thanks for this article, Erik. My husband and I are considering retiring in Montana, near an Amish or Mennonite community. We know there are several. We have been looking at Lewistown.

    This is an interesting article.

    Whenever I think of Montana, I think of a song we learned in school…”My home’s in Montana,I wear a bandanna, my spurs they are silver, my pony is grey, When ridin’ the ranges, my luck never changes, with foot in the stirrup, I gallop away.”

    That said,it’s a little bit difficult for me to imagine the Amish there, but I hope they can make a good enough living to grow their communities.

    I’d be interested to hear of more visits to the Amish there over the last year or two.

    I live in “The West Kootenai”, and will say Erik’s write up on here describes the Amish community to a T. (I’m not Amish) Yes, its a beautiful place to live if you don’t mind traveling 28 miles to the nearest gas station, or 70 miles to the nearest hospital, etc. Its an adventure, but to describe it as a ghost town is rather amusing! Must be the world outside the W. Kootenai view us residents back here as stranger then we thought!! :)

    Comment on Lancaster has whoopie pies and chicken corn soup, but what about in Montana's Amish settlement? (October 22nd, 2012 at 13:15)

    Lancaster has whoopie pies and chicken corn soup, but what about in Montana's Amish settlement?

    Montana is a beautiful place and I’m sure even more so now with some of the Amish settling there, and like Lancaster that has say “chicken corn soup and whoopie pies” I wonder what that area has as a specialty in regards to food. I love checking out local favorites in different states so I wonder if the food theme in these Montana Amish communities takes on a sort of western taste!

    Alice Mary, we learned that song, too.

    Tricia Goyer has authored Amish fiction books with a Montana setting.

      Hutterite Family Style Dinner

      To answer Steve Behringe about a Hutterite style dinner. We presently live in Eureka, MT. We had lived in The West Kootenai for a number of years so we know the area well. There is an Amish style dinner served at The West Kootenai Store each Friday evening. I have never heard of a Hutterite style dinner being served anywhere near Eureka or The W. Kootenai. I’m assuming someone got The Amish and The Hutterite mixed up.

    Many thanks!
