Many small farms like this are found in rural Chester County, PA.  This farm belongs to a single Amish family.  The rich soil provides ample feed for a small herd of milking cows and fresh produce of excellent quality.  Fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, beans and corn are readily available from road side stands.  One of the benefits of living in Amish County.  Less the an hour from Philadelphia, rural Chester and Lancaster County stand in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the urban areas.  Horse drawn carts and buggies are the only source of traffic jams in our area.  For me, they are not a nuisance, but, a reminder to slow down and enjoy life.
