Ohio Amish Farm Field Day with 6000 Amish

Imagine an all day event with 6000 Amish and lots of horses and buggies. 

I get to invite everyone on here and on all of my Ohio lists, but tourist types are not really wanted–so keep it to real farmers, gardeners and foodies and anyone else as you are led. We brought 100 last year. This one is Sat Jul 17.

My story from last year including photos is here— with some personal moments that you will enjoy. It is being hosted by my friends on a 200-acre organic dairy deep into the world’s largest Amish settlement.

ALSO Ohioans may want to join Ohio Connections to Natural Food and Healing http://wholefood.meetup.com/165 so you can RSVP– but you do not have too.
(An added bonus is Ohio Connections to Natural Food and Healing members will have 30 minutes to meet each other. Plus this is the national debut of Annie’s and my new Living Food publication and our national, state and local sponsors– if you need new business–we need more advertising sponsors– or you can make some easy slow money and bartering tools as a local distributor, http://wholefoodusa.org/livingfood.htm )

BROCHURE for the event is here. Enjoy.

FIRST thing that pops up on my laptop over my first cup of coffee this morning is about to be presented to you. It was as if Christmas came early this year for me and for you. Santa (that’s me) and Mrs. Claus (Elizabeth) are bringing you, especially in NE Ohio, a way to set some goodies under your tree. The spotlight on an Ohio natural food store and delivery service is written by Elizabeth Walling, the Journal’s Alabama Correspondent over at The Nourished Life blog. I wanted to feature this store last summer after the open house I attended– but I got caught up into other things– but Elizabeth cooks this up much better than I could. Continue reading
