hardin county amish farm

The picture above was taken at an Amish farm in Hardin County, Ohio (we’ve mentioned this settlement already this summer, see the unusual buggy post).

Can you guess what’s happening here?

The family only does this once a  year.  Luckily, that was the day I stopped by!

UPDATE: if you guessed apple butter, well done! See below in the comments for a bit more background on this photo (this took place in mid-August, for those who were wondering). And here’s another photo of the final product (from last year’s batch):
