Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0


In the middle of a cold Ohio winter, over 250 Amish men gathered together with one goal in mind.

pIt was Saturday, March 9, when the group arrived at the Hochstetler Farm, part of an Amish community in Geauga County.

The men, clad in their traditional clothing and hats, surrounded a massive red barn and prepared to lift the barn together and move it to another section of the farm.


Shortly after 9 a.m., the men gripped underneath the barn and in one seemingly effortless movement, lifted it off the ground.

Walking at a calm and steady pace, the men moved the barn to a new location on the farm.

Once they reached the desired spot, the team rotated the barn to face it in the right direction before gently setting it down.

At the end of the video, Amish wives and children were seen watching the men complete the task.
