an amish farmer resting his horses

Farming the old way.

We watched this Amish farmer tilling the soil with his tem of horses. In this picture he had just come to the end of the field and was taking a rest. If you have a chance to catch this work you will see that the farmer is toiling mightily what with handling the reins and maintaining his balance. This was shot West of Harmony, Minnesota

I find the Amish to be interesting, it feels as if your at a living history farms when seeing the Amish community. It is just amazing to me that people in the US are still living like this today.
