If you want to know anything (and everything) about the Amish this is the website for you! Meet Erik: “My name is Erik Wesner. I study and write about the Amish. I have visited over 40 Amish settlements in a dozen states, and met roughly 5,000 Amish families (read how here). This is a daily (Mon-Fri) blog covering all things Amish. You’ll find over 1,500 posts and articles on all variety of Amish topics here, and 25,000+ reader comments. I hope you’ll make this a regular stop and join in the many conversations here on Amish culture, faith and communities. Erik also interviewed 60 Amish entrepreneurs to write Success Made Simple: An Inside Look at Why Amish Businesses Thrive.”
The Amish Cook Column
The column itself is penned by Old Order Amish mother of eight, Lovina Eicher. but true to her beliefs and lifestyle, you won’t find Lovina online, on television, or too much in the spotlight. Long before the din of reality TV and 24-hour media, the Amish Cook started being penned in 1991 by Elizabeth Coblentz and has continuously published every week since then. Lovina’s editor helps put her recipes and stories online.
