And off to the field we go.
Next is the plowing demonstration. Three different types of plows were demonstrated: the horse drawn, the tractor with iron sheels and the tractor with rubber tires. All were equally effective.
While the men are working away in the field, the women are baking bread in the oven of the cookstove, doing the milking and making butter.
The bread table was quite popular.
The Amish men and women are preparing chicken to put on their large portable grill. Zip says it's some of his favorite barbequed chicken.
Zip was my roving reporter for the day. He didn't get pictures of the milking or sheep shearing.
He liked the alpaccas!
After the sheep are sheared, the wool is cleaned and the spinners take over.
These women are members of the South Cumberland Fiber Guild which meets at the Shippensburg Public Library the 3rd Saturday of the month. They are all very good spinners, some are knitters and weavers also.
