A couple of days ago I did this story of a restaurant in a Mennonite community in North Alabama. It was so refreshing to visit and be reminded of a more simple time and slower pace. These people are very family orientated, all the kids, parents, grand parents etc help out.
Just a few miles away was a Dutch Bakery run by the same community. It is a metal building out in the middle of farm country and is all family run.
This looked like an interesting section, all bags of fresh ground herbs and spices.
The whole store smelled like a country kitchen baking bread, cakes and cookies at Christmas. We did buy a few loaves of bread and some spices and jams.
As I walked around inside the bakery I felt I was back in time 50 years. Nobody had their pants down below their butt, or had nose rings or spiked hair. Made me feel good.
