If they do not have a sign posted at their driveway that they are offering items for sale, you are trespassing to enter upon their property. How would you feel if strangers drove up to your house and began "snooping around," even peeking into your windows?
This is exactly what happened last week, not at a home but (worse yet) at an Amish schoolhouse. Two men in a mini-van with NJ plates drove onto the property while school was in session & began peering in the windows. The alarmed teacher feared the worst & quickly herded the students outside.
The men were believed to be "clueless tourists," but pretty inexcusable behavior when you recall the Nickel Mines schoolhouse tragedy of a few years back.
