Amish Community - located in Ethridge, TN. Come visit us now for fresh produce daily. You will see the amish sitting next to the road with their buggy full of produce or you can visit their home and purchase. Bring cash because they do not accept credit cards. Explore in a horse-drawn wagon, visit Amish farms, purchase handmade crafts, furniture and fresh vegtebles. You can get maps and drive thru the community yourself or you can take a wagon ride and have the tour guide explain the history of the Amish. We actually like to do both. If you have questions you can always visit the Amish Welcome Center at www.amishwelcomecenter.com for more information. Great family adventure and perfect field trip.
