Members of the Amish community near Edgewood left the settlement because of economic differences they had with the Bishop &nbsp;about how much time they could work off the farm. In the capital intensive agriculture industry it’s hard for anyone to work the land without a second income. As the Amish are forced to become more progressive it’s pitting them against the eroding Midsize American farms.</p> Tue, 09 Oct 2012 10:23:46 +0000 Clay Masters 9090 at http://iowapublicradio.org New Amish Settlement Competes for Land in Delaware County
