Troyer's Country Amish Blatz, Fairview

One wouldn't expect to find an Amish store outside Asheville but this one is wonderful  I drive past the sign for this off Route 74A but have never stopped until a few days ago. Situated in an old farmhouse, the gardens surround the front and back entrance.  The front porch has seating areas for eating lunch and the interior is attractively laid out.  Shop for fresh bread, deli meats and cheeses at the counter or browse the shelves for jams, crafts  and other homemade goodies.  Upstairs you will find beautifully made Amish quilts and furniture  - a few pieces are for sale but most is made to order.

The owners descended form local Mennonites and still belong tot he Mennonite church in the area.  They frequently visit the Amish areas in PA, KS, IN and OH and bring their good back  here. If you are wondering what "blatz" means - just PA German for  "place".

Out behind the store is parking, a few out buildings, a windmill and a donkey or two. The sheds and chicken cops can be built for you on your land.  The windmills are also for sale. Just a great setting for a bit of shopping and lunch!  For more info go to Troyer's Country Amish Blatz.

Waiting for Pop to come out with a lunch to share!

I'll bet the breads and other baked goods are fabulous. I'm hungry. LOL.

Looks like a really neat shop to browse through, and perhaps splurge for one or two items. :-)

BTW, such a pretty header, looks terrific!

Oh this brought back memories of our many trips to Lancaster, Pa. We love the Amish and feel such peace when we are around them. Takes a day or two to get used to the horse exhaust aroma but it really isn't so bad. Wish I could visit this place but it would require a 5 hour drive. Thanks for sharing.

That looks like a great store. We have an Amish community only 10 miles from where I live. The people are kind and industrious.
