The Amish are distinctly recognizable from film and television. They are a religious sect of Pennsylvania Dutch with their origins in the Swiss Anabaptist tradition. They’re best known for their simple lifestyles and their unusual forms of plain dress as well as a stout refusal to dabble in any form of modern technology.

In general, the Amish are considered to be a harmless, if unusual, group of people. But there are things that the Amish don’t want you to know and with very good reason.

Here we take a look at 15 things that you don’t know about the Amish and why.

This allows them to do something in their community instead. You might be surprised to learn that this is completely legal.
