an amish barn raising vol 2 dvd

An Amish Barn Raising
Vol 2.

From the back cover: It is the Amish tradition to help on another in times of need. A barn raising is one of those times. An Amish family might need a new barn because of fire from arson, lightening or because they are beginning a new farmstead. Friends and neighbors through verbal invitation, gather from all around to help. In early colonial America, a barn raising was commonplace, and the Amish have continued this American tradition.

A barn raising completed in one day is a complex and challenging undertaking. It requires weeks of advance preparation and lots of good old fashioned muscle power, working shoulder to shoulder as a team.

Te barn could't get off the ground without the help of the women, many of whom have been cooking for days, making their pan fried chicken and delicious homemade pies. It's also a tradition to make sure the help is well fed!

On this DVD you will have rare oppoartunity to witness

  • wall by wall skeletal frames being erected
  • young boys pitching in carrying lumber and keeping the work area clean of debris
  • the huge lunch hour where they eat cafeteria style in groups called hitches

Digitally filmed in a beautiful sunny in 2001, you'll feel like you stepped back 100 years in time. Inspirational to watch for both young and old!
