In addition to being amazing farmers who create delicious, healthy and wholesome foods sold locally, the Hutterites possess a variety of hard-to-find skills.
Despite common perceptions, and unlike the Amish, the Hutterites keep pace with modern technology. They use current farming methods, with some old-fashioned family-type harvesting, carry cell phones, use power tools, and drive trucks and tractors.
Like many religions in America, the Hutterites sought freedom from religious persecution in their home countries of origin, originally Germany and Austria. After moving to a variety of Balkan states in the 1600s and 1700s, they ended up in Russia in the mid-1800s.
Hutterites don’t believe in violence so when the Russian government revoked their freedom from military service, they migrated one last time in the 1870s to the United States.
Their principals of their religion are based on the Anabaptist movement from the 1500s. The basic tenant of Hutterite religion is entrenched in their belief that giving to their community, and living as one community, is the most preferential way to commune with God.
