Comment on My top five Amish settlements by Al in Ky..
Good to hear more about Daviess County, Ind.,one of my favorites. If anyone is planning a trip there, try to go on a Friday, and go to the Amish produce auction on Friday morning and then to Dinky’s Auction Center on Friday night. I’ve had many interesting conversations with Amish people at the auctions. I, too, have found many friendly, nice Amish people in Daviess County — easy to talk with. If it’s your first trip to Daviess County, you do need to be aware of the gravel roads like Tom mentioned. They have some of the largest rock gravel I’ve ever seen and I always drive slowly on those roads. The main road, CR 900E, is paved.
About 35 miles to the east of Daviess County is Orange County
where there is a Swartzentruber settlement with three districts.
Many of the farms sell various items and I’ve had many interesting
conversations there also. It’s an interesting contrast to the
Daviess County settlement. The easiest way to find it is to go
north of Paoli on Hwy 37 about five miles and start looking for
signs such as “Tarp Shop”, “Produce and eggs for sale”, etc.
