My old army buddy over in Hart County KY says that the Amish will buy some worn out land and make it into a prize farm in a decade.

Common practice in this area. They buy over grown farms, clear and grade, renovate the pastures, build their own infrastructure and suddenly, its the nicest farm in the area.

The Amish I've been around and got to know a little here in KS have impressed me.

I've told ones around here what bulls have sold for at different Seed Stock Sales I've attended in the past and it's like a gasket blows out upstairs. Guess it may be a reason why cattle is getting very thin in WKY especially my county, when the prices got high at the sale barns everyone tried to hit the jackpot and sold everything. Was too expensive to buy new herds, bulls, etc... Went to cropping all those cattle acres and began to watch them wash away. Although now several are cashing them out to the Amish for big money. I suppose the Amish will fix the gullies and ditches.

I went to Crittenden County yesterday to look at some cows, there still seemed to be quite a few cattle there, and an Amish store, too. We crossed the ferry on the way down, and crossed the bridge at Shawneetown on the way back. It did look like a lot of smaller empty feedlots were around, and a couple empty auction barns as well.

Yeah Clodhopper Crittenden and Union counties have been larger cattle counties in WKY but are lots less than in the late 90's & first 2000-10 decade. The sale barn been closed for I guess about 2-3 years or so. Still buy some feed at the feed mill in Marion but its expensive considering how cheap grain and cattle are. Need to find the Amish store. I've crossed the ferry and the bridge a few times but don't get up in Illinois very much. It's really amazing how different the regions and appearance of Kentucky is.

Western Kentucky is where they have Burgoo and barbecued mutton. I loved the burgoo that I had in Guthrie KY a few years ago.

My Grandmother made the best burgoo, really miss it. I've had barbecue mutton in Guthrie pretty good. Sometimes I just have to drive east and get into the central part of the state when I get tired of looking at grain field after grain field driving down the road.

Mike. This summer, meet me in Lexington, we'll go to Smithtown Seafood for lunch and then we can tour through the appalachian mountains of eastern Kentucky. It will be a dramatic change from that boring row crop country.

I am in the eastern half of the state, but have relatives in Owensboro KY. When we go there to visit, we almost always eat a barbeque restaurant there. Usually get mutton, because we don't have it here.

Ron, I know it would be! Thanks for the invitation would be nice to meet you, I'll check my calendar and planner. Have lots of things going on this summer and trying to plan a long get away this Fall to New York and to go by the Hudson Pines Dispersal. I'll PM you if I can work it in and see if it will work for us both.

Sorry imitation of Brunswick Stew made with wildlife rather than good old beef. I won't eat the stuff.

WalnutCrest, it's like a spicy stew or soup. Many variations. Bing or Google it.

I'm as Southern as it gets I just don't care for Bird Pooh stew. Oh, and Kentucky BBQ is sub par as well.
