WEAVERLAND MENNONITE FARM

I took these pictures a few weeks ago not far from where I live.  What I thought unusual is in picture 5 - a TV disc attached to the pole on the right.  The Weaverland Mennonites do have electric and drive cars, but this is the first I have seen with a television disc.

G'morning Marilyn, Very nice place. TV Dish is more than likely from previous owners. I think satililte companies don't retrieve their equipment when people move away so that new owners can just call the company to begin service quickly with out having to go through installation.
Have a great day! Blessings, Carol

Good Morning Carol ,

I never thought of that. You could be right. It was still funny to see that there.

Blessing to you and yours,

Good Morning Angela,

Most of the Amish and Mennonites keep their land well-cared for. Not all, but most. Will have to see about cows. Think I have some more pictures of them.

Lovely farm and like you, I would wonder about the satellite dish. Carol probably has the right idea about it.

The satellite dish can also be used only for internet connection or a special weather station for farmers. My Dad, the farmer, had a weather station that was not TV and had a dish like this. Or they are all right, just left over. The companies say it is not worth their time to come take them down.

Hi dynnamae n,

It very well could be one that was put there by the previous owner. I agree with Carol, too,

Hi Anonymous,

Most Weaverland Mennonite don't have internet connection in their homes. I never thought of weather station. Also, I agree it could have been left by the previous owner.
