Richland - Shelby Chapter meeting
Moving Off the Farm and Trying to Stay Amish
Presenter: Dr. Susan Trollinger, University of Dayton
By now most Americans likely know something about Amish life—that the Amish depend on horse and buggy for transportation, that they do not plug into the electrical grid, that their cuisine is delicious, and that they live according to a much slower pace of life than most Americans do. What many people do not know is that Amish life is changing in some very significant ways due economic pressures that have pushed them off the farm. In the course of this presentation, we will look at what Amish life has been like for the better part of a century in the US and how it is changing now as a result of what has been called “the Amish industrial revolution.” We will explore these changes and ask the question—can the Amish remain Amish?
