Each time I go to La Plata, Missouri, I
like seeing and visiting with the Amish there. I try and save
time on Saturday, their day to shop, to go to the Amish Store and the
Amish Bakery west of La Plata on Hwy. 156 in hopes to meeting
them. The Amish always enjoy talking about farming, and I was
born and raised on a farm so I can converse in that area. They
also are proud of their horses and buggies.
Ben Myers, fellow Field Reporter for TrainWeb.com, told me that the
Amish Store had moved, so I looked for their sign while driving west of
town. I noticed the sign and pulled in, remarking to my son
that the sign sure was small and easily missed. Then I realized
that it was large enough for someone driving a harse and buggy to see
with no problem.
