Here’s an interesting article on a produce auction in the largest Amish settlement in Tennessee (article no longer online). The settlement of ten church districts at Ethridge, Tennessee, is a conservative Swartzentruber Amish affiliation.
So it was interesting to see local Amish contributing to this article, as well as learn that the area has something called an Amish Welcome Center with maps of farmhouses in the area with goods for sale. Even though the community may be a conservative one, they are engaging the public in the form of the media and visitors in promoting their enterprises.
I’ve not yet had a chance to visit this community but perhaps someone else has?
