About Us

We are not Amish nor have we ever been Amish or Mennonite in any way.

Anytime you go onto a website and look around and find a few things you like, you end up making sure you can trust the website owners. We want to assure the reader of our love and dedication to our websites as the owners and writers of this website. We also star in our own videos from the actual locations around the Ethridge area Amish community. We have expertise in the lives of the Amish people as we know many of them personally. This friendly context and background gives the website visitor our authenticity as people who would easily be called out as liers if they tried to fake their experience. We only type true and legitimate words here so that the visitor can have trust in us to tell them true and trustworthy sentences and if we don't know something, we write it in as something we don't yet know.

The Amish of Ethridge website is under the umbrella of The Progeny Adventure Group LLC who owns and distributes the content shown in this website. Mike and Josh are the main controlling members of The Progeny Adventure Group LLC and want to show the areas Amish people in a way that would attract visitors to come see them and have fun in Lawrence county and the surrounding area. This should make since being the "progeny" means kids and "adventure" and "group" mean the website companies under the umbrella all have adventure with kids as a central theme!

About the author - Michael Pilkinton

Mike is the main owner with a majority share in the company and all of the websites under the Progeny Adventure Group LLC . When his wife Tara had a 1 pound 13 ounce baby daughter Alana that spent 89 days in the NICU, he knew that parenting was a huge task and one not to be taken lightly. His passion turned into questions that led him to find answers from his 24 years of working in engineering to be applied to parenting with a purpose!

About the author - Josh Brown

Josh is the only son of an Army special forces father who was on a mission to keep Josh in line. He had to miss several fun things with his friends to mow grass or paint for others. He was a janitor who decided he needed to be teaching rather than mopping the floor. So he went to Trevecca University and received a masters in business science. Josh's father died before seeing him walk the stage or see his son David being born and this makes him want to be a great father. 

Growing up in Ethridge

So how do we know anything about the Amish in Ethridge? Mike grew up on 109 High Avenue across the street from his grandparents Henry and Louise Pilkinton and nextdoor from his uncle Donald that everyone called "Hopsing". Across from him was his great grandmother Lillian Wright who was a Dickson before she married. Mike would walk with his grandpa Henry to the Amish on Indiana Avenue and toward South Brace where the majority of Amish lived. They were friends with the Amish and Mike grew up around them. Josh would grow up in Lawrenceburg but befriended people in school who lived in the Amish community as English people. The Amish boys would also hang out with them so Josh got to know them as he grew up and out of school.

High Avenue was beside a store and the Farmer Co-Op feed store . The Amish buggies would bring a constant clopping of horse hooves on the road that would make us look out to see them. 

Mike And Brenda

Mike's dad who was also called Mike but had a different middle name to avoid the senior and junior titles was a feisty youth who would play tricks on the Amish people. Along with his brother Hopsing, they had a race car and would drag race at what is now the Ethridge Motorsports Park just down from where they lived. They have many stories to tell about Ethridge and the mischief they got into. In a way this website was easy to write and explain since the places and features are just like it was years ago. Time doesn't move things along here and the most common response we get from visitors is "It seems like I went back in Time" when they visitors tell us of their journey.

We hope you trust us with our opinions on this website and our many others. We have been all over the state of Tennessee visiting every Amish and Mennonite community to give visitors the best information. The traveling is nice but we must get back to writing and recording videos and live shows to give another perspective in our hopes to give you the best information possible. 

See our Facebook page as we tell visitors about the Amish of Ethridge Tennessee!

This store is not in Ethridge- We have been traveling and gathering in east Tennessee for our other page called The Amish and Mennonite of Tennessee and we found a store who has things from our Ethridge community! In Sevierville TN there is a store called Amish Creations and Country Store that has products from a few Amish people we know! See the photos below as they have the name and address of them and a few other products from our knife maker on Amish Lane off Yoder Road. There are a few items on the outside like swings and things that were also built by our Amish! It is neat to see just how many of these stores get things from out community! I am not sure I seen them all so point them out if you see anymore in the photo! Here is their page - https://www.facebook.com/amishcreationsandcountrymarket #amishmennonitetn


Bob's Cafe Opens Tuesday through Saturday 11am till 4pm and opens again on Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm till 9pm so you can eat and play pool in the back. Their smash burgers are some of the best in Lawrence county but they are more of a sit down restaurant and not a fast food diner so be patient and you will get a made to order plate that is fresh! #amishmennonitetn


It is Taco Tuesday at The Noble Fox. The Amish bee farms have been doing well and many sell bee supplies and queen bees to get started. With hunting season coming in, Bare Bones is who we generally send people to when they are successful to get their game processed. As the weather gets colder the Amish will do leather and wood works and the polywood factory at 172 Bridy Road in Summertown will be getting ready for next spring.. Bob's Cafe will open today for those who missed cheeseburger day. #amishmennonitetn


We went by last week to try the new Bee 🐝 Sting Pizza 🍕 from Hinie’s BBQ! We also got a safe pepperoni pizza (in case it was to hot 🥵) and a new appetizer! It was amazing and tasted great! It was to hot and spicy 🌶️ for my wife Tara but just right for me. Below is a photo of the bee sting and it isn’t a greasy thin mess but a good wood fired oven made pizza! We show the insides and the crust and close ups of these treats and you’ll see why we choose Hinie’s BBQ as our top recommendation for group travel for those visiting the Amish community!


The Amish lanes are already being used and the new traffic lights are up warning everyone of the new traffic pattern. We believe this may cut down in buggies getting hit. The rustic hinge store is at the light going back to cabinets to go so now getting out at this light will be easier so go by the rustic hinge during your Amish Adventures!


Is anyone going to combine their Amish Adventures with the Middle Tennessee District Fair? IT’s September 21st through 30th and while I don’t think I have ever seen an Amish person at the fair, the exhibit area and farm topics may be interesting!
