Reader Jerry brought to my attention a silent auction concluding today in Millersburg, PA, of an Amish-owned organic dairy farm. They’ve provided quite a few photos from inside the home, and of the property, which you can see below. These are some of the better photos I’ve seen of an Amish home and property.

Jerry writes that “These Amish are a spin off of the Lancaster group. Very progressive.” Millersburg is in Dauphin County, a community of 12 church districts. It’s also known as the Lykens Valley settlement. The reason given for the sale is that “Owner is relocating and motivated to sell.”

Some details from the auction listing:

Property Description: 63 Acre, Certified Organic Dairy Farm with large 6 bedroom house, 54 Tie Stall Dairy Barn, Large Horse Barn, Dry Cow area, 2- silos (1-16’ x 65’ & 1- 12’ x 60’), 40’ x 60’ Free Stall Barn, 40’ x 60’ Equipment Building, garage, large pond, pastures, ready to go.

Notes: Rare opportunity to buy a certified organic dairy farm ready to go, located in a Very desirable location and setting. Farm is in great condition and ready to go. Farm has been in operations as recently as December 2020. Owner is relocating and motivated to sell.

It’s a very neat and clean home and true to Jerry’s comment you can see various notes suggesting this is a more materially progressive Amish group. What catches your eye here?
