Mid-spring in the Valley, 2001

The lady of the house where we used to buy organic eggs, poultry and meat allowed me to take a picture of the family's aprons out to dry on one warm, breezy afternoon.  The Yoders were (they've moved since, and another family of Brethren has taken over the farm) Beechy Amish Mennonites, one family of a community of Anabaptists around Stuart's Draft, Virginia.  The Stuart's Draft Beechy Amish have ties with the Cold Springs, South Carolina community I worked with around the same time.  I have more documentary photos of the that community.
