Spring In Amish Country!
Yoder’s Amish Home was purchased in 1972 by Eli and Gloria Yoder. Somewhat unsure of what to do with the badly run down farm which had been rented out to Amish families for 10 years, Eli and Gloria decided to do what they had in the back of their minds all along. After extensive repairs (the little house was being used as a chicken coop!), Yoder’s Amish Home was opened for visiting in 1983. Eli had been part of the Old Order Amish faith until the age of 21. Gloria was raised “English” in an Amish community, having gone to a mostly Amish school until the 5th grade and lived just about 1/2 mile from Eli. With both of their heritages rooted in this culture and community, they thought it would be a great idea to share this unique culture with visitors from all over the world. For the past 20 plus years, Yoder’s Amish Home has been Keep Reading>>
David Warther Carvings & Gift Shop is the newest attraction to open in Ohio's Amish country. Opening in late April, the carving exhibit features the artwork of David Warther, a nationally recognized maritime artist. Located between Walnut Creek and Sugarcreek, at 1775 State Rt. 39 Sugarcreek, the exhibit of intricate carvings opens to the public in a new 10,000 square foot facility.
The carvings created by Warther depict the “History of the Ship“ from 1st Dynasty Egypt, 3000 B.C., to the present day, and collectively form an artistic and highly educational exhibit. With over 80 major works in the collection, David carves daily in his on-site workshop to add to this unique and amazing display.

Grilled Vegetables Are A Succulent Change of Pace.
I have cooked a lot of things on my grill but until this summer, I had never done vegetables. I hadn’t really given it a lot of thought but it makes sense to throw vegetables on the grill, if you’ve already got it going. Why heat up the kitchen or dirty another pan? Plus it adds a smokiness to the vegetables. I’ve listed a few veggies that are great on the grill but don’t let this list stop you from throwing your favorites on or whatever you have in the kitchen.

Picture yourself walking across the threshold of a quaint little cottage hand-in-hand with your sweetheart. As the two of you pour yourselves a glass of sparkling cider, you take in the surroundings of the beautiful cottage and make yourself comfortable. Tucked in the corner of the room is a heart shaped Jacuzzi for two, surrounded by candles and rose petals. The fireplace flickers along the far wall and emits a soft, warm glow as you cuddle up close to your significant other on the couch. You feel totally secluded from the busy city just outside your window.
Storefront after storefront grace State Route 39 as it passes through the heart of Berlin. People bounce from door to door with shopping bags filled to the brim with goodies they have purchased and vehicles constantly buzz up and down the busy street.

The Theater at Carlisle Inn Sugarcreek is announcing two productions coming in its second season. This summer, Beverly Lewis’s popular musical, The Confession, will return to the theater-in-the-round at the Carlisle Inn; and in the fall and early winter, audiences will be treated to a new comedy, Half-Stitched from Wanda Brunstetter. Fans of Amish fiction will recognize both authors’ names. In keeping with Dutchman Hospitality’s dedication to providing guests an experience that celebrates the culture of the Amish and Mennonites, both musicals are set in Amish communities. The appeal of these stories, however, goes far beyond the locale.
The Confession presents the story of a young woman, adopted into an Amish family as a baby, now in search of her birth mother while wondering just where she belongs in life. Half-Stitched throws together a group of very different characters with conflicts, pain, and Keep Reading
