When it comes to technology, the Amish community takes a cautious approach, being hesitant to embrace new and modern advancements.
Across the United States, there are approximately 40 Amish affiliations. These tight-knit communities rely on their own manpower and hard work to coordinate and complete various tasks.
In March 2019, an extraordinary event took place on Joseph Hochstetler’s farm in Knox County, Ohio. Early in the morning, hundreds of Amish individuals arrived in horse-drawn carriages with a single mission: to manually move a pole barn from one side of the farm to the other, even in the harsh winter weather.
About 250 men gathered around the barn, positioned on all four sides, and began the incredible task of lifting and walking it, all in one piece. The women observed as the men skillfully maneuvered the massive structure, offering comments as they twisted and straightened the barn until it was safely placed in its new location, nearly 200 feet away across the field.
