Amish buggies pass every day, but especially on Sundays, around Lime Valley Road between the centuries-old Mill and the Mill Owner’s House on the hill above and across from the Mill. Early in the 20th century an Amish buggy drive spotted a fire in the basement of part of the Mill and the structure was saved. Due to floor damage the grist stones were replaced by rolling mills, making the mill far more productive.  Nowadays, the Amish buggies wave hello.

On one side of the mill is a 1700 yard-long mill race with swaying willow trees and on the other is a three acre orchard where an ancient log cabin used to stand. Continue along the Road and you reach the covered bridge crossing the Pequea Creek. It’s also lined with weeping willows and century old sycamore trees.

Diagonally across the street from the Mill is a two-story bank barn which is also located next to the driveway leading to the Mill Owner’s House. The higher floor of this barn is used for equipment as well as crop storage. On the street level the barn has several selling areas for natural, fresh produce, eggs, flowers, sunflower seeds, meat, and poultry. The higher floors are full of

    Lime Valley Mill Farm’s 118 acres is perfect to grow biofuels to develop sustainable sources of alternative energy. There are barns, big sheds and the mill itself to process biomass from corn, alfalfa, grasses, soybeans and more. Biofuels are usually produced from living plants, fungus and algae. Biofuels contain 80% renewable materials. Since the living, organic, produces are originally derived from the photosynthesis process, biofuels are often referred to as sourced from solar energy.
