Barn Charm – Amish Country

You know your supply of barn pictures is low when you have to look back three years to find a Barn Charm photo.

Motor Man and I visited the Amish Country near Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the fall of 2010. This was just before I began blogging, so these pictures certainly weren’t taken with Barn Charm in mind.

So many interesting things in this picture: the pulley-system clothesline, the narrow “windows” on the barn, the tobacco drying inside.

It was harvest season, and quite a sight to see the farmers working the fields with their horses, rather than modern farm machinery.

Another barn, more tobacco.

There’s no shortage of barns in this area.

(I wonder how far back in my files I’ll have to go for next week’s Barn Charm photos…?)
