Amish Community

The Amish are mostly found in 19 states of the USA, mainly Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, where they live in rural areas and preserve their culture of origin with their specific dress codes, language and religion. They live exactly as they did 200 years ago, where no electricity is used, and still travel with horse and buggy. They are not allowed to drive cars, since it is against their principles. The Amish cultivate they're own produce, and work the land with equipment and machinery that no longer exist today. When the equipment wears out they must repair it. This being said, it is obvious by their way of life that nature and environment can only do well! Some Amish communities now use electricity and telephones to facilitate their work, and sawmills allow large machinery such as loaders and trucks on the premises to help out with larger pieces. Nevertheless, they are still equally ecological and conservative in their customs. The Amish live in fairly closed communities, which means that meeting them without knowing anyone is not obvious. Very few foreigners or outsiders can enter an Amish citizen's home. Here at Can-Am Logs & Lumber, the president Jean-Pierre and his daughters, Stephanie and Sabrina consider themselves extremely privileged to be among the Amish during their business visits!
