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
