What I couldn't get a picture of was the swimming pool in front of the barn in picture 3.  Yes, there was a swimming pool.  When I first drove by, I saw people swimming in it.  Also, because they have a garage doesn't mean they drive cars.  Many farms purchased by the Amish and Old Order Mennonites, in our area, were owned by Englishers.  They use the garages to park their  buggies.
Jean has a two car garage attached to her house.  They purchased their farm from Weaverland Mennonites who drove cars.  Jean and David but their buggies in the garage.

This seems not to be an Old Order farm, what with the tractor with rubber tires.

Good Morning Thomas,

They could be Weaverland Mennonite. The tractor was sitting on their property, now maybe it is someone else doing some work for them on their farm. This picture was taken in Lyons.
