In the 19th and first half of the 20th century, millet, mint, rape, brom corn, sorghum, hemp, onions, cabbage, and tomatoes were all popular crops grown surrounding Nappanee, Indiana among the Amish farmers. Ploughing, planting, cultivating, and harvesting were all done by horsepower using equipment and machinery long since passed by among non-Amish farmers.
Amish Acres is a working farm to the extent that horses, cows, chickens, geese, and pigs inhabit the barnyards, barn, and animal sheds. The Amish neighbor cuts and bales hay three times a year using horse-drawn equipment.
Domestic demonstrations are practiced throughout the day, often reflecting the seasons. Special outbuildings, built in 1874, feature a food drying house, brick bake oven, and smoke house. These buildings long forgotten, were restored in 1969, with the knowledge and assistance of Albert Kuhns, son of the last owner of the farm.
