Yoder's Country Cupboard


On the weekend while we were out driving. Look at the size of the veh-hicle that passed us! What a monster. When it was way ahead and approaching we wondered what in the word it was. It was hogging our side of the road and still was as it passed. We were on our way to Yoder's Country Cupboard. It is a lovely Amish store.













They have a beautifully landscaped property and this is on the side of their driveway.


























This is their store. On Saturdays it is only open until noon. The place is pretty full whenever we go on Saturdays.














This is a side view of their home. It is lovely and I should have shown it on BLUE Monday with Sally.














These are some of their delicious pies and baked goods. They sell right out of them. Our neighbour at the lake, Bob, who has the "community garden" in his yard often brings us a piece of something they've picked up from Yoders. Yum... (we repay by giving them some of our baked goodies like the Apple Raisin and Walnut Cake I baked on the weekend). Fun to potluck with neighbours....













They have a lot of packaged goods for baking and making wonderful soups....














One of their carriages was covered at the side of their barn...











These white ducks or geese were at a distance but I thought they created such a neat country picture....














so did the chickens in their coop...freestyling it chasing one another. There was some kind of brawl of courtship going on there. We couldn't tell....












A couple of weeks ago I saw this tree close to the cottage. I thought it was way too early and didn't recall seeing any others changing their colours.











But oh no....look what was right on the lawn this weekend. *huge sigh*. You know I don't want this happening yet.....













THEN to top it off I saw this truck with pumpkins ahead of me.....I grabbed my camera and took a shot....












We have continued to have such lovely weather...I hope you are enjoying your day...Judi xoxo

That Amish store and the property are so peaceful looking and homey. We have a large Amish community about 30 miles from us. They have a small store, restaurant, and a woodworking shop. I have bought some furniture there and some of the baked goods. Your pictures are always so interesting.
I'm glad your weather is good. We've had rain for over a week now. I still have a 20 foot long pile of yard sale things getting wet. They are covered but after a week of rain, who knows.
I hope your good weather continues.

That Amish store looks really neat! I bet those pies and the food is delicious. Great pictures and that truck had a BUNCH of pumpkins!!

It is hard to believe all the rain we have had but I really don't mind (I just feel sorry for Marilyn since she needs to have a yard sale). It has kept our temperatures so much cooler than normal.
