A three-day barn raising in one minute

A crew of 60 men from Iredell County’s Union Grove Amish Church spent three days this week constructing a new workshop and equipment shed at Hickory Nut Gap Farm in Fairview. According to a recent press release from the farm, the barn raising kicks off an expansion project slated for completion this summer that includes plans for an on-farm butcher shop, inspected kitchen and larger retail space.

Check out a time-lapse video of the build:
