History of Fall Creek Mennonite Community

Fall Creek Mennonite Community - Baked Goods

Fall Creek Mennonite Community was established in the spring of 2012. Desiring to relocate, a group of about 60 families from Kentucky purchased 5,000 acres of land in Van-Buren county in Spencer, Tennessee. Over the last 9 years the previously raw land, which was mostly logged off, has seen quite the transformation. Many homes and barns have been built, pastures have been created, and lots of different crops are planted and harvested each year. In addition, 25 businesses have either been relocated or newly established.

About Mennonites

Fall Creek Mennonite Community - Fabrics

Mennonites are a Christian group which formed during the Protestant Reformation. Mennonites are not Amish. Although they have many similar beliefs and often dress alike, the Amish are a group which separated from Mennonites in the late 1600s due to differing beliefs in how to live separate from the world. Typically Amish follow a stricter doctrine. As for the Fall Creek Mennonite Community, they don't drive cars or use electricity in their homes and they dress very simply. You will see them traveling using horse and buggy as well as bicycles. They are permitted to hire drivers for long trips and for business purposes.
