. John copes dried corn has been a local Lancaster favorite since 1900. In fact i would say that most of the restaurants serving Amish style fare In the Pennsylvania Dutch area serves their dried corn. I've been eating this corn now since i was a child, and if you were to look in my kitchen cabinet, you would see a few cans and a packet of their delicious corn.

I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
