Historic Farming with Horses in Berks County


For nearly 25 years, I worked in field research and museum exhibits with the American Folklife Institute, located in historic Kutztown, Berks County, of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

I have taken these last 20 months, and countless hours, to write about my experiences of life, work, research, and discoveries which revolved around the rich Pennsylvania Dutch culture of over 330 years to present. It is hoped the pieces I've written are enjoyed by many.
