Amish people believe in a very simple lifestyle that does not draw attention to the individual. Their paint is specific down to the mixture.

In the Indiana Amish enclaves there are a lot of red barns, maybe because they are Indiana Hoosier fans???   ^_~

White paint is cheaper than any other color and the Amish are very thrifty Will Hamm . My wife is the daughter of a Mennonite farmer and they splurge on red for their barns.
