Very nice photo. I lived in NC a very long time and remember tobacco harvesting time.

A wonderful image! I remember when I first came to America driving through tobacco country and see the tobacco drying in the specially made tall barns. I saw them again recently in a living museum reproducing colonial times.

Tobacco is being harvested here, too.

I know many Amish folks and I'm always confused by the issue of tobacco. Well, I guess lots of things confuse me! Interesting that they seem to be drying the leaves in what appears to be a greenhouse. Thanks Felicia for sharing these views form your neck of the woods. Please visit again soon.

I didn't realize that tobacco was grown in Pennsylvania. One always thinks of Virginia and North Carolina. You learn something new everyday.

Like Linda, I didn't know tobacco was growing there and I certainly didn't know that the Amish people were doing it

Huh, that's interesting! I used to see lots of tobacco growing in Maryland but it has switched to corn.

Its a great cash crop for the Amish and this is a very modern barn for drying it!

Hello great shot of the barn. I have not seen a tobacco barn in Maryland. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

it is really different from the old tobacco barns I grew up with in GA. I bet it dries a lot better ..

The Amish grow tobacco? That doesn't seem right Michelle!

Great capture! Looks like a good crop. :)

How neat to see the tobacco handing in the barn to dry out. I have not seen it in way over 40 years. All the years I lived in North Carolina I did see it, but am assuming many of the tobacco farmers have been out of business for years. genie

Great shot! But, I, too, am curious about the Amish connection to tobacco :)

seems strange they harvest tobacco, mind you I guess they have to do something, do they sell it?

Beautiful farm....You don't see too much tobacco being grown any more. Most of the farms in my area have changed to other crops.....I hope you have a great weekend...
