Spring Has Finally Sprung! Issue #002 -- Amish Country Experiences
May 06, 2009
Ohio Amish Country Experiences
Dear Ohio Amish Country Enthusiast,
Well, the long winter has officially ended and spring is finally really here in Northeast Ohio! Spring is another beautiful time of the year to be in Ohio Amish Country.
The fruit trees are blossoming. Tulips, daffodils and lilacs are in bloom, the air is filled with the fresh smells of spring. And, of course, the fields are yellow with the "signature flower" of spring - the notorious dandelion!
This is also an extremely busy time for the Amish. Fields must be plowed and fitted. Gardens and crops need planting. The "litter" from a long winter gets cleaned up.
All this makes for some great site seeing! Enjoy the beauty and freshness of the season and watch for signs of the Amish farmers working in their fields.
You'll definitely want to make time to experience Ohio Amish Country during this transformational season! Don't miss it - make your plans to visit now.
In this issue we'll be highlighting . . .

3. May Events - Find out what's happening - where and when in Ohio Amish Country.
Featured Establishment of the Month
The Orchard Guest House at Honey Run
The Orchard Guesthouse is located in the beautiful Amish country of Holmes County, Ohio.
Come enjoy the peace and serenity of a spacious 3 bedroom home in a country setting. Vacation with your family or friends.
Plan a retreat, or come for a weekend of scrapbooking or shopping - all set in the midst of their Orchard at Honey Run.
No smoking or pets are permitted in the guest house.
Our family spent a couple of nights here. We loved every minute of it!
We really liked having the conveniences of home - like a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor gas grill on the deck just outside the dining room.
We also liked the walk-out deck off the master bedroom to be able to do some star gazing on a beautifully clear and stary night.
Breakfast at the Inn at Honey Run each morning was a great plus as well!

Tip of the Month
Amish Salvage Grocery Stores
Need to make your grocery dollar stretch even farther? If you live within an hour's drive of Middlefield, Ohio, it would be worth your time and gas to "shop the salvage store circuit!"
We've compiled a list of salvage stores around the Middlefield area. While not all are owned and run by the Amish, many are and the concept is all the same.
These stores buy salvage groceries by the pallet and truckload. The slightly damaged packaging or scratch and dent cans & boxes are sold at greatly reduced prices. This spells a bargain for you.
Granted they do not stock the same standard items at all times like Convenience Stores, but they do stock lots of bargains.
You'll want to check out every one of them as they each carry many different items - and prices vary.
For more information, a map and a list of stores go to:
