Group Of Amish Men Lift Then Move Massive Barn

Ever heard of the saying, "There's strength in numbers?"
We all need some sense of unity and togetherness to overcome obstacles. Since the beginning of time, no man can function effectively on their own. They hunt in packs to protect one another or form small communities to share ideas and solve problems. It's no question that humans gain strength whenever they band together for a single cause.
In the clip you are about to see, the Amish people perfectly display the power of cooperative endeavors. Not only do they strive to build this structure together, but they also team up and MOVE the building by hand. It's a wonderful sight and a great lesson about teamwork for all of us.
The Amish people are a group of people living United States. They're known to live away from busy cities, opting for a quiet life in the countryside. Farming is one of the most important aspects of Amish lives and serves as their primary means of income. That said, the Amish are reluctant to embrace new technologies.
Perhaps this is why this Amish group had to lift an entire barn with their hands. Self-propelled farming equipment is frowned upon by their society, so a majority of labor has to be done manually. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially when you have a lot of helpful and willing neighbors who're as eager to get the job done.
The incredible video took place in Joseph Hochstetler's Farm on Snively Road. Shortly past 9 a.m. on a Saturday, around 200 Amish men arrived in their horse-driven carriages. Their mission was one thing: Lift and then move the massive barn to its new location.
The men proceeded to carry the barn over 150 feet, even turning it 90 degrees before finally settling it down. Take note, the entire process finished in just a few minutes. Incredible! This proves that at the end of the day, we can accomplish great feats when we work as a unit.
This isn't the first time the Amish were captured lifting and moving large structures. Their tight-knit communities are known to band together to get jobs done as quickly and efficiently as possible. There are several videos online that prove that, but the number of Amish men that showed up at Hochstetler's Farm is definitely one for the books!
Looks like you can really get by with some help from your friends! This begs the question: Why pay thousands for farm equipment when you can always gather a hundred friends and family?
