September is here and that means it was time for our annual trip to the Topeka Livestock Auction to drop off lambs and kids. Kids as in goat kids, wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea!
Topeka has a large population of Amish, which means more buggies on the road than cars, white houses and barns, bicycles, and bonnets.
It also means a trip to E&S sales (bulk food store) which is in the neighboring town of Shipshewana. We are able to purchase a lot of food items that we cannot buy locally.
Today we found some grains; Spelt, Quinoa, Barley, and Kamut. I also buy Cheese in bulk, which I later shred and freeze. Spices are found there at a huge savings, and we never leave the store without browsing the candy aisle!

Since it is a trip we have to make I am glad that it has some interesting shops, and some scenic views.
Anyone else live by an Amish Community?
