While I often share Amish homes which are already off the market, here is one that is for sale right now. This farmhouse on 40 acres of land is found in Marathon County, Wisconsin, in a small two-district settlement.
It’s four bedrooms and one bath. As you look through the photos, see if you can guess the price, which I’ll share at the end.
There aren’t a ton of inside-the-house photos, but they are quite large so we can see detail. Here is the kitchen and dining area.
The greeting cards strung across the line is a very common form of decor in Amish homes. Hats hung neatly on the wall. We can see into another room in the back…
…which looks to be this room. We see hats and shoes stacked neatly on shelves. An ironing board. What appears to be a ceramic heating stove in the left foreground.
Note that most hats here lack a black band. Going by that, and some other materials visible, I would say they probably have a little business making hats here, and possibly other clothing items.
The one bathroom.
And a look in the mud room.
Next comes a series of photos showing the outside of the property in the opposite season from the top photo – what looks like the dead of winter.
Finally, a stunning aerial view showing the 40-acre property from a different perspective. So what does all this cost?
The price is $180,000, which was cut by $45,000 in early September. I found this listing on Zillow.

Loved the farmhouse pictures
If we didn’t abhor the cold, I would be so interested, and we are not even farmers!
I don’t know why, but looking at these pictures put me in mind of it; I’m wondering if some of the Amish sometimes tap Maple trees and make their own syrup. A number of years ago I went to Maine for a maple syrup festival in late March and it was the first time I ever had maple syrup drizzled boiling hot onto snow–it seems like something many Amish people would enjoy doing. I would imagine they would tap the trees with buckets then go around with a horse drawn sled to gather the sap and take it to the sugar shack which is an old fashioned way to do it as most modern operations have lines that lead directly from where the trees are tapped right into the sugar shack for boiling down.
Absolutely beautiful. Love the flat land!!
