Hi, This is Kathy at the Village Shops at Down A Country Road near Cashton, WI. We have closed our retail gift shop business as of Oct 28, 2023. You have reached our website because we have chosen to leave it up until we have figured out the next step. At this time I am taking some time to discern those next steps after closing our 30 year retail business and "retiring". I am currently not taking orders for any merchandise, questions about the Amish or their businesses or any other "business" activity. Please respect the fact that I need some down time to transition into my new reality. My husband had a massive heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery a few months ago and we are now also in the process of cardiac rehab, dr. appts. and such. Having said all of the above, I likely will not check this email until some later time in the spring or summer. If you have AN URGENT REASON TO CONTACT ME, PLEASE CALL ME AT 608-654-5318. Thank you for understanding. Kathy


Kathy grew up in the Cashton community and was just 6 years old when the Amish began moving to the area. She had Amish neighbors as a child and over the years grew to be very knowledgeable about the Amish and their traditions, customs and of their long and rich history. From the friendships Kathy has formed with the Amish to the vast amount of time spent traveling to Amish communities throughout the U.S., she has much to share with your audience.

Kathy will travel to your group to speak about these experiences and can also focus on such topics as those that affect a community when an Amish community moves in, what your hospital or clinic staff should know and more. Your audience will delight in Kathy's heart warming stories of her experiences.

As the author of "Down A Country Road with the Amish", Kathy also provides book signing events where she will share a bit of the Amish culture with a short presentation for your group. Whether your group is a small or large, you will be intriqued with her knowledge.
