    That's the first thing I thought when I saw the title of your thread! I have been into reading an Amish book series for about a year + now. I would love some day to go and visit Pennsylvania or Ohio. In the books Holmes County is mentioned quite often. I've also heard of goats mentioned in the books to:). I wonder if Ohio has more of the New Order Amish whereas I bet Pennsylvania has mainly Old order.

    Holmes County, Ohio is the world's most popular place for Amish people right now though! I just finished a book about Amish people right here in Holmes County, Ohio, I love living here in Holmes County, Ohio, have only been living here for 11 years though,there are a few goat farms around but it's mainly horses, cows, pigs, and sheep though, it is hard to come by a good goat vet around here anymore they only do small animals anymore there are a few that just do horses and cows, our vet bought a practice that we used in the past to a town that I grew up in, that's 45 minutes away.

    I know PA has a lot of Amish but there seems to be more here in Holmes County, Ohio though since we know a couple that are ex-Amish now and he said there's alot of Amish community here in Holmes County, Ohio than anywhere else in the world though and we have a Missionary that most of his support comes from Amish and Mennonites here in Holmes County.

    My mom and I also visited Amish Country! Let's see. . . . can't remember the town we were in. Warren?? Somewhere near there. . . . I can't remember it was a while ago. In 2004, my mom's sister was hit by a tree and is now quadruplegic w/ brain damage. :( It's very sad. :tears: My mom, grandparents, and aunts visited her many times and I went along one time. I can't remember where we stayed though but it was near Amish Country - we ate at one of the restaurants where they served homecooked, DELICIOUS food! Oh, it was so wonderful! :drool:

    How neat Olivia, that's so sad about your Aunt though. My Mom and I picked up a buckling in Warren, Ohio though which is like 2-3 hours away from us though. There is alot of Amish restaurants around here that have yummy home cooked meals that we go to every once in awhile.
