Comment on How many Amish live in North America? by Erik/Amish America.
I’ve always assumed that Massachusetts or Connecticut would be very pricey and would guess that’d rule out Amish going to those states. But as you say sounds like some Massachusetts land is not that expensive.
You have also piqued my curiosity as to why Massachusetts might not be a good fit for Amish culturally. I’ve only visited once, Worcester and Boston, so don’t know what MA small town/rural life is like.
