Every time we take a field trip,
Buster brings something home.
Like when he took a dinosaur fossil from Rainbow Rock State Park...
then he accidentally took a detective's badge
out of the police station...
and, from the fudge factory, he brought home a stomach ache!
I wonder what Buster will bring home today!
Now, that's a machine!
Bet you can't catch us!
Say goodbye to the 21st century, class.
This is Amish country.
-A country called Amish?
-Buster, were you paying attention yesterday?
-That's a trick question!
The Amish came to America from northern Europe
to live according to their beliefs.
-What kind of beliefs?
-What do you see out the window?
They're not using that big machine.
Correct. The Amish don't rely on the modern conveniences we do.
-Do you know why?
They choose not to use them.
They believe their lives should be as simple as possible.
The don't use cars, phones or even electricity.
-Or any other technology that makes modern life possible!
Yeah! Or TV!
Hey, look! A buggy!
Hello, children. Welcome to the Latt farm.
We Amish believe our community should keep to our own ways,
separate from the outside world.
In the 200 years since we came here, the outside world has changed,
but our farm hasn't changed much. Come inside and I'll show you.
-Hi. I'm Buster.
-Hello. My name is Daniel.
-We make a lot of our own furniture.
-Who builds your pianos?
We don't believe in playing musical instruments.
We make quilts and clothes.
-I'm not allowed to wear these.
Too fancy! No zippers, either!
As Mr Ratburn told you, we don't use electricity.
We use gas or wood for cooking.
-A butter churn. We even make our own butter.
Can I try it?
-Look at me! I'm making butter!
-OK, Buster, that's enough!
You want to try something really yummy?
What's going on?
Our friends and neighbours are helping us build a new barn.
It's called a barn-raising.
A barn-raising? Can we help?
We are a little ahead of schedule.
We're doing a barn-raising!
It would have been more efficient with a power saw!
Mr Ratburn, can we come back tomorrow to put the roof on?
No. Sorry, Buster.
Thanks for helping us.
I should thank you! I never made anything with my own hands before!
You guys know how to live!
You don't have to be Amish to live this way! Try it at home.
-You think so?
-This will help you get started!
-Awesome! Thanks, Daniel!
Pretty cool, Buster!
It's way more than cool, Arthur!
-It's my inspiration.
To live the Amish way!
I'm going to live simply and make everything with my own hands.
-Who's with me?
They put us to work, Daddy! I chipped a nail on a stupid saw!
Buster, it's virtually impossible to do without technology!
Think of the advanced machinery we use every day.
He's right! Remember - you couldn't last a week without TV!
I'm through with modern junk!
Take my jacket - it has buttons.
Buster, I don't understand! Why can't you go in the car?
It's not the Amish way, Mom!
Well, OK... Would you like anything special for dinner?
A stew of corn meal ground by hand
and fresh kale and sweet potatoes slow-cooked over a wood stove.
Next time, we have to make our own pizza.
-We can make our own dough.
-That might be difficult -
-I have to work! But a candlelight dinner was a nice idea!
-We can't use electricity!
-Of course we can, dear!
-That's not the Amish way!
-Don't answer that! We can't use phones!
-I'm not Amish
-and neither are you!
-But we should be. They know how to live.
-Maybe, but I'm not living that way!
-Well, I am!
Tell you what - you can be Amish in your room!
-You mean I have to go it alone?
-I'm afraid so.
But Amish families stick together!
I found this self-powered flashlight.
Don't ruin your eyes.
Just crank this handle to charge it.
-Whoo! It's cold in here!
-I had to turn off the heat!
-I don't think the Amish sleep in freezing rooms!
-They probably have wood stoves that heat the house.
-But we don't!
Sweetie, do you need to be completely Amish?
-Couldn't you just be a little Amish?
Is Bionic Bunny a little bionic?
Oh... Sleep tight, dear.
Buster, you'll be late for school!
I can't find a coat without buttons or zippers!
Mr Ratburn, can we do a barn-raising in Elwood City?
I'm pleased you got so much out of yesterday's trip,
but I don't think we need a barn.
Given the lack of farmland, I doubt you'll find anyone who needs one.
-Buster, wanna play tag?
-No thanks. I'm sewing a quilt.
Guten Tag, my Amish lad! Hungry?
I bet that tuna surprise was made in an electric oven.
Is it Amish enough for you?
I'll just have an apple.
Well, I'll be...!
Never thought I'd live to see Buster Baxter turn down food!
This homework is hard on the arms.
Look what I found at the farmers' market! They look delicious!
What's that smell?
I tried to make butter - I think I made mayonnaise instead!
-That's it! You're not making butter in your room!
No buts! And you're sleeping with the heat on tonight!
Bet you can't catch us!
-Go get them, boy!
Come back! Come back!
Your report on your favourite educational programme is due Monday.
Mr Ratburn, watching TV is against my beliefs.
Well, write a report on your favourite educational book.
-No picture books!
Eat up, Buster! I made it myself -
for the boy who used to be my best customer!
Buster, I've spent a lot of time with the Amish,
and whatever it is you're doing, it isn't Amish.
They don't own cars, but they ride in them and eat whatever they want!
Do you think it's Amish to be cold, hungry and miserable?
No. Actually, everyone at Latt Farm seemed happy.
-Why do you think that was?
-I don't know...
Cos everyone worked together, like at the barn-raising...
But here you are all by yourself.
It's no use cooking dinner for six if you end up eating alone.
Hi, Arthur. It's me - Buster.
Yes, I'm using the phone again.
No, I'm not Amish any more,
but there's one Amish thing I'd like us all to do together.
Hey, Pal! Come here, boy!
Mmm! This is the best pizza I've ever tasted!
Maybe because I made the dough myself from scratch!
What's wrong? I thought you liked it!
I do! That's why I'm going to take it home and save it.
The first pizza crust made from Baxter hands!
