Amish Country Inn often ask, "Where do I go to see the Amish?" Our area is home to the world's largest Amish community and there are Amish-owned businesses everywhere. The Amish also shop in area businesses so they are basically everywhere. There is one place that the Amish frequent: Mt. Hope Auction. Every Wednesday there is a local farm auction where the Amish go to buy livestock, hay, straw, etc. There is also a produce sale on the property. Everyone is welcome to look or to shop. Some locals say to be sure that you don't scratch your nose or you may have just bid on a horse.
