Not many people know this, but just a few miles north east of Versailles in Mennonite Country.  It has plenty of beautiful, scenic country to drive through.

We go every year to Weaver’s Country Store to buy old fashioned candy and if we’re lucky pick up a fresh homemade pie!  I even purchased lavender stems in bulk from Weaver’s when we planned our daughter’s wedding.  (We tied the lavender into small placemat bundles for each of our 250 guest to smell!)

My mom goes to the Mennonite local market all the time to pick up flowers for our properties, as well as purchase and later can their wonderful produce.  This is also a great experience for kids — a “bring the whole family” trip.  It gives kids a chance to see good see how goods are brought to market and sold through an auction.

If you’re looking for something out of the norm, take a visit to the Mennonite Country!
