    Fall Amish consignment auction

    Can anyone tell me the exact date for the Amish consignment auction near St. Charles, MN again this fall? I think it is on Saturday, Aug 30, 2014 but am not for sure.
    We really enjoy them.

    Not real sure, however, they are located a short distance from the Mayo Clinic. so, why not just website to the St Charles City Hall for example. obviously, those people will have the info that you’re looking for.

      St Charles. MN Obviously will have their own website for local Amish Information, that people asking were looking for. I’ve had tours. and its a wonderful and warm community.

      My advise is to go by Private Car, the tour driver will drive for you.
      . Do NOT and I mean, do NOT take pictures of Amish people or any pictures of their houses and barns. however, the tour driver will give you more instructions. .

    Why no Amish in ND? (January 9th, 2015 at 12:15)

    Why no Amish in ND?

    With many Amish living in MN and some close to the ND border, it is interesting that we do not have any Amish in our state. There are many farms and pasture land for sale in the eastern part of the state. There is one county close to the MN border that has a lot of pasture land and land that is coming out of CRP in the near future. This land typically sells for much less than land that has been farmed. I think the land prices overall are very reasonable compared to other parts of the country. Maybe one day the Amish will take a good look at ND.

      ND Amish (January 9th, 2015 at 14:46)

      ND Amish

      I should note that we did have Amish in ND from 1894 until 1956 when only 3 members remained according to GAMEO.

    • Will Amish settle in North Dakota?

      It will probably happen again someday; I’ll make a “bold” prediction and say that within the next 5 years there will be a North Dakota Old Order Amish community (an arbitrary guess based on general Amish westward migration).

      As you say the state has had an Amish presence before (at least 4 different communities) and Amish currently live and survive in similar latitudes. You’ve also got Amish in three neighboring states (Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana), so I’d bet some adventurous soul(s) will take a look at some point fairly soon and take a crack at North Dakota, assuming there’s not some factor I’m unaware of which would make ND unattractive.
