A National Geographic documentary that highlights Amish teens and twentysomethings leaving their order will showcase Sarasota's Pinecraft village tonight.
You can watch it on the National Geographic Channel Tuesday at 9 p.m. and catch a glimpse of Sarasota's Amish and Mennotite community in Pinecraft.
Pinecraft will also be featured on the season finale, "A Very Ex-Amish Christmas," which airs at 9 p.m. June 19. In that episode, three Pinecraft residents are flown to Missouri for filming. Stay tuned to find out who.
The series follows the lives of Amish and ex-Amish teens and twentysomethings challenges and triumphs in deciding whether to stay with their Amish beliefs and ways or depart and potentially be shunned by their community or family.
