My neighbors at work. A Deere 40 with a one-row head and a harness of six animals.

They invaded our county 22 years ago.
I wish everyone knew what I have learned about them from my personal experience.
Maybe they aren't like the ones here??

You mean because they can pay cash for their land? Confused

The initial ones here may have paid cash. I think there was some 1031 money involved. But if not I would rather take out a note to buy land with and provide my wife some decent house items to make bearing those 20 welfare babies that you and I pay for a bit less tedious. Tom

Tom,

I know several Mennonite and Amish families personally, and I can say for a fact that the ones I know are on no government programs. On the whole, they are hard working and honest people. There may be a few bad ones, but those are usually thrown out of the group and only pretend to still be members.

You might want to know what you're talking about before you open your mouth.

That's a 42. I just hauled 2000 bushel of organic ear corn from an Amish to a Mennonite. The Amish group cannot hire custom operators or use a combine. They ear picked the corn with an International 1pr and a New Idea pulled by 6 mules each. if they want to shell it, they gotta use a stationary sheller. For beans, they would have to use a reaper/binder and run them through a thresher.

I agree. The ones I know around Yoder, KS are very good hard working people. I have never heard of an Amish taking any form of government assistance. I kinda envy them on being able to opt out of Social Security as they take care of themselves which is the way I would prefer my association with Social Security.

Also you never hear of an Amish family pushing Mom and Dad into a nursing home to get rid of them. I highly respect the Amish.

They are across the road from me. Going on 12 years now. Just going on what I see and hear not always from the Amish but from those who deal with them in various relationships.

And remember they are PEOPLE and there are different personalities to deal with. As for the beginning farmer Loan this was a young man who had worked for me a considerable period of time. I don't doubt him.

When they go for medical and want it thru charity the medical profession writes it off but you and I the tax payer/patient (who pays his bill) wind up footing that bill.

23 gleaner and ridge farm I am glad your Amish and Mennonite acquaintances are upstanding. As for Matt and myself the experience has not been so good. Tom

4435,

Funny you should mention medical. One family’s wife had cancer and she had a historectomy at UW Madison. Her family ended up paying a huge sum of money for it. Her husband told me it was quite a struggle for quite a while. Most groups have a sort of mutual aid among themselves. If one has a huge debt due to a medical emergency or a barn fire, the others pay in to help the family out.

There’s nothing wrong with taking a young farmer loan - it has to be paid back, and it gives young farmers a chance at a loan that a bank isnt likely to offer. I’d rather see the FSA get more into young farmer loans and get out of the crop insurance scam...

Here at Arthur, IL, the 4th largest US Amish settlement, custom work for the Amish is a good business. We have several smaller farmers with smaller equipment who do custom harvesting and baling for the Amish farmers. Most of the Amish farmers here take care of planting, but hire harvesting. The full-time Amish farmers, which are very few here, as most have off-farm jobs working in wood shop manufacturing, do have harvesting capability. We have one guy here who has a John Deere 42 with a three row head hooked to a 4 cyl. diesel on a forecart. He can unload on the go with it. Quite a set up to watch. He has lights rigged up on it. Every Amish settlement has good and bad "apples", just like us. Good and bad. For the most part, the Amish are good hard working people.

One guy here racked up a huge medical bill
and told the hospital he couldn't afford to
pay the bill and the hospital bought his
story.
Later on he was trying to buy 160 acres
with $600,000 cash in a suit case.
