    Golf Balls For Sale

    It’s funny I know exactly where these signs are located in Adams county because I have the same pictures! There are 3 little boys who sell the used golf balls out of a large Rubbermaid tote for 25 cents each. They collect them from the high school’s golf team practice field.

    I thought it might be in Lancaster

    Lancaster Host backs a lovely farm and it has a full golf course. I walk the trails behind it and talk to the cows… I would imagine that farmer gets tons of golf balls too!

    Enterprising kids

    How neat for these young ones to be so enterprising. I too am grateful for the background on this story. Thanks, Jodi Click.

    Going to MN

    Thanks again for another interesting insight. We were just musing about how few “English” children would have opportunity or motivation to have real work that contributed to their lives.

    We are driving to see Ed and Rurh right now! Should be in fertile, mn tomorrow by noon. Can’t wait to see them and meet our new grandson!

      Happy travels to MN

      Anne, travel safe, I am sure you will have a wonderful visit, and say hello to Ed and Ruth!

      For those who don’t know the back story, Anne’s son Ed joined the Amish a few years ago. Anne has been sharing her story in a series of posts dating back to 2012. We always enjoy hearing from her :)

    Ah, Erik, did you forget to post the photo I sent you a couple weeks back, the one I titled “Fore!”? Proof of Amish golfing. :-)
    We used to live next to a golf course and would pick of the strays. We never sold too many but they got used for batting practice, and targets for .22 shooting, and just whatever else a bunch of golf balls are good for.

    Amish Sign

    Here is a link to an Amish sign I never saw until… well until I saw it. Does anyone have an idea what it means?

      Oops

      Ha! Being as the Amish tend to list exactly what they have to sell and not generalize, I’m assuming they are selling hoes. For the garden. Probably not the other kind. 😉 That’s a great picture and classic example of being a bit behind the times by not knowing any better than to post that!

    Produce. vegetables & Fruits

    Have a produce stand in Northeast Louisiana. Looking for Amish growers to supply my business. Small markets are not quite suitable, need large producers to fill 53 Foot Reefer Trailers. I know they are out there, just need any contact info you may have. Any state is fine, we can travel anywhere to do business. Thanks Jack Buttitta. 318-503-6273

    Produce

    http://www.sweetcorncharlie.com/

    This company is not Amish. I don’t know of a local Amish concern that could fill reefers.

    This company has several local produce markets in season. As their name implies they do sweet corn. They have “branched out” into other crops.

    Fantastic local company.
