Échanges avec les voyageurs
One of us (or both!) will be available to welcome you and answer any questions upon arrival. We are both active in our community, but make a point to be available if you need to contact us!
We have two small dogs, Sophie - a beagle/dashound mix and Benny - a Jack Russel Mix. We also have an indoor/ outdoor cat who enjoys spending most of his time outside.
Hi! We are Sam and Louise (Sam is writing). We are both natives of Lancaster County and love the place we call home. We are always excited to welcome people to my home, and try to answer any questions that visitors have about the local Mennonite and Amish Sects. We love helping guests find authentic local experiences: whether taking them to a "Mud Sale," showing them the best places to eat, sending them to our best back road finds, inviting them to Sunday services at a Mennonite church, or talking with them about the core values of our Anabaptist faith tradition.
Louise and Sam both come from families with rich agricultural histories and backgrounds. Louise's family is involved in the greenhouse business, so we love working with plants and flowers to create beauty. Sam's family has been involved in Dairy and Beef farming in the past. Sam's prior work involved helping large family farm operations understand their profitability and plan for taxes and capital investments. He is now in financial management at the largest feed mill on the east coast. Sam is always looking for opportunities to expand his involvement in local agriculture, and has undertaken several agricultural ventures. We love to garden, and have a flower and produce stand during the summer and fall seasons and can or freeze what is left. If you are visiting and have an idea for us, we would LOVE to hear it!
A Bit about us as individuals:
Louise works evenings as a nurse, and teaches Sunday School at our church, Forest Hills Mennonite. Sam is the church Treasurer and sits on church council. Since Louise works many evenings, Sam tries to keep busy. He serves as the vice president of the Ressler Mill Foundation, a local organization that seeks to preserve local agribusiness history and promote agricultural education. Louise and Sam have been involved in supporting a family of Syrian Refugees, along with a group from our church. It has been a highly challenging and rewarding process to help the adapt to their new home.
We share our home with a small dog (Sophie) and two indoor/outdoor cats. If you have any questions or concerns about us, Just Ask! We'd love to hear from you!
