    Comment on Searching for a friend .. (September 24th, 2013 at 15:51)

    Searching for a friend ..


    For several years now I’ve been trying to locate a friend and her family who converted to Amish. They live in Michigan, and I believe they joined a church not far from Flint.

    They joined the Amish church sometime between 1997 and 2000, but I’m not sure of the exact year.

    The woman’s name is Denise, and her husband’s name is Greg. When last we spoke, Greg was running a trucking business for the Amish. They had three daughters, two of which were named Samantha and Amanda. At this moment, I can’t recall the third daughter’s name.

    I lost their address, and would love to find them and reconnect. I’ll be happy to give you my mailing address if you like — just let me know.

    Your assistance in finding Greg’s business or their home address or the web site of his business would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,
    Shirley Smith

      Greg and Denise Rich


      I asked my son, Mark, who is Amish if he knew of these people. He said that he did. Greg and Denise Rich came from the “outside” and joined the Amish church at Evart, Michigan. Since that time they have become a part of a Beachy Amish community in Kentucky. He will try and find out their address for you.

          Thank you, Paul, for the business name. I’ll check to see if Greg is still working there as they’ve moved from Michigan to Kentucky.

          I appreciate your help!

        Greg and Denise Rich

        Hi, Don:

        Thank you (and your son, Mark) so much for your information — it’s sparked other responses, too, and I should be able to contact my old friends soon!

        I’m glad you got their last name right .. don’t know why I had it as “Lee” — that may be Denise’s middle name. Silly me 🙂

        I now know their last name; where they were and where they are. I’m not sure if Greg still does the trucking business thing, but I’m sure I’ll find out soon.

          Amish in Letart, WVA

          There is a community at Letart, which looks to be about an hour from Parkersburg. One of our readers visited and shared a few photos and info on this small community:

          There is another even closer, at Palestine, that looks like it’s within 45 minutes. These are small communities so don’t expect Lancaster County, though you may find a few Amish businesses. Our reader reported that there is a small store selling bulk foods in the Letart community, check the post link I shared above for more.

    Still looking . . .

    Hi, Erik:

    I know your comment wasn’t for me, but would you have anywhere in your listings the names of Amish trucking businesses? Greg Lee, the husband of my friend, Denise, runs such a business for other Amish.

    I would very much like to find him/them, and would be grateful for any information you might pass along.

    Thank you.

    Comment on Amish Business Directory (November 27th, 2013 at 14:12)

    I don’t know the exact location, Erik. All I remember is that prior to joining the Amish church and moving into a community, I think they lived in or near Flint, Michigan. Denise told me once, but I didn’t write it down and have forgotten.

    Is there a specific Amish business directory for that area?

    Thanks 🙂

      Shirley I don’t know if there is a business directory specific to that area; the Michigan Amish Church Directory published by Abana Books does list some businesses however. I just checked the 2010 edition and there were no businesses of that type listed.

    If you want the rest of the Amish stove builders you should ask,

    Vaughn Range Boilers
    Ed Semmelroth is friends with these builders and pictures all the Amish built heating products for sale on his website at http://www.antiquestoves.com/general%20store/generalstore.index.htm

    The Kitchen Queen website is also Ed’s. Duane the owner didn’t know his product was on the web until I told him. But he’s OK with it and will do business directly as well.

    These builders are horse and buggy, so they take a check by mail and get your parts and products out when they dooo.

    Amish Scooters & Croquet sets

    Erik: I can’t remember which of your readers told me about this company, but I think it was Dr.(?)Richard Stevick.

    Anyway, as of 2011 they were doing business as Groffdale Machine Company, 194 Groffdale Road, Leola, Pa 17540. Phone 717.656.7657

    I never got around to ordering one, but their scooters look like they would be an absolute blast to ride. Our town has some nice little rolling streets and I can just see myself nearly killing myself on a scooter flying down one of them. Nevertheless, I think I am going to do it anyway!

      Comment on Ordered a scooter today! (December 3rd, 2013 at 20:41)

      Ordered a scooter today!


      I contacted the people at Groffdale Machine Co. yesterday and they are still very much in business. In fact the price sheet that they sent to me in 2011 was still in effect, except that shipping had gone up $2.00. I ordered one today, which is my Christmas present from my wife and son to me. , I know, we do things in a somewhat unorthodox fashion in our family.

      The surprising thing (to me) is that when I was talking to them on the phone on Monday they asked if this order was for a Christmas present. When I told them that it was the man said that he could not 100% guarantee that it would arrive in time for Christmas, because they have so many orders coming in.

      So I asked if he was Plain & he said that he was. Then I asked if scooters are used in his community … again he answered in the affirmative. So I asked: “Are more orders coming in from Amish folks or English folks for Christmas?” He said a lot of English do order from them, but most orders are for Amish people. So I confirmed with: “And these are for Christmas presents?” He said: “Oh, yeah”

      I guess Christmas gift giving is a bigger deal in some Plain communities than maybe I thought it was.

    Amish (made) harness shop

    I know of a non-Amish owned harness shop, which only sells Amish made harness. They were in the Pacific NW somewhere, maybe Oregon, but the lady that owns it relocated to the Dallas, Texas area to be near her daughter and grandchildren … I think. When I can find her contact info I will post it.

    I’m a student from Belgium making a paper about the Amish and their economic activities. I have a question for you.
    How can you explain the success of the Amish business? Because we had an financial crisis. Did the Amish feel the same financial crisis as we Europeans did, why not?

      Margie there are many variety and dry goods stores where Amish shop and which have books. We have plans to add these to this directory but it will be a little while.

      Gordonville bookstore in Lancaster County, Gospel Bookstore in Berlin, Ohio, and Pathway Publishers in Lagrange Co, IN are three of the strictly-bookstores patronized by Amish which come immediately to mind.

        Hi Erik,
        Just wanted to touch base with you on the addition of stores that actually cater to the Amish. If you are not able to add these to your Business directory at this time, is it possible to list the dry goods stores,general stores, or houseware stores in those communities. The stores that you recommended to me are actually accounts with us at the present time and do quite well with our children’s books. Recently you visited Choteau, Oklahoma and mentioned Creekside Sales there in the community that sells to the Amish. I was able to contact the owner and have already sent him free review copies of some of our books and look forward to doing business with him in the near future. I really appreciate seeing these stores mentioned in your articles on the communities you visit as they are leads for me in obtaining new business in my territory. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Comment on Amish Businesses (April 21st, 2014 at 07:54)

    Amish Businesses

    I can tell you a little secret that when looking for an Amish business. They aren’t allowed to use the word “Amish” in the name of a store because that would be capitalizing on their religion to market their goods.
    If you see a store with the word “Amish ” used in the name then they “MIGHT” sell “SOME” Amish made goods, but it’s not an Amish owned or operated store so the store is probably a rip off.

    • Non-Amish-owned businesses selling Amish products

      That’s only partly true. Generally it’s correct that very few Amish businesses have used “Amish” in their business names. But Amish feel differently as to how much to reveal about their background in a commercial context.

      Some will reference their Amish status in company literature for instance. Some are very much against using the Amish name to market. Others fall somewhere in between.

      But just because a store uses “Amish” in its name doesn’t mean it’s “probably a rip off” as you described it. Many of those businesses are benefiting Amish producers by marketing their goods for them in places Amish otherwise wouldn’t be (internet). Both sides are winning in that case. Many Amish are also okay with 3rd-party non-Amish retailers advertising their goods with the Amish name attached (even though they wouldn’t do so themselves).

      You do hear stories of some less scrupulous establishments that might take advantage of the name and try to pass off non-Amish products as “Amish-made”. But many are selling legitimately Amish-made products.

      How to find an Amish horse trainer

      Beth my recommendation would apply to anyone looking for an Amish horse trainer (or really any sort of Amish business). In Lincoln County looks like you are quite close to the Bowling Green area Amish. If I were you I’d either 1) drive up to the community, stop at a business or two (you should see various plainish signs, or just ask someone local where are the Amish stores) and then ask who in the community does that sort of thing, or 2) call an Amish business or two in the area and ask them to recommend someone.

      I’d think you’d probably want to meet the person in any case so you may just want to visit the community. Here’s a bit on the community itself: http://amishamerica.com/bowling-green-missouri-amish/

      If you want an address to punch in the GPS, here is one for an Amish beekeeper who sells honey and jams:

      Hilty’s Bee Yard
      11116 Pike Rd 466
      Bowling Green, MO 63334


      Don’t see a phone number for them but that might get you started.

      My basic, old-fashioned advice for anyone looking for a certain type of Amish business is to simply find any Amish business at all in the area you’re interested in, and then ask them 🙂 It takes a little legwork, but we don’t always have a choice since finding info on Amish businesses online is sometimes difficult.

    Amish in the Mid-South

    I live in Mississippi just south of Memphis. My wife and I are currently own several horses that we need to get rid of due to age and health reasons. We do not want our horses going to the “killers” who buy them at auctions If any Amish would like some horses we would be willing to give them as many as they wanted at no charge. They are Arab/Quaterhorse mix and are not registered. Thanks

    Furniture Store in Wytheville, VA

    I came across this website, and thought that you may want to add our business to the listings if you don’t mind. Our furniture is made by Amish craftsmen in Ohio. The name of our business is Dutch Boy Furniture. We are a part of the Amish Mennonite “Beachy” church here in Wythe County, VA. I had seen your name somewhere before, and appreciate what you have been posting concerning Amish & Mennonites. Thanks, Vernon

    Traveling Amish

    I work for a small, outdoor resort in Missouri. We plan several activities throughout the year and were considering having an Amish day. So far we haven’t had much luck finding information. What we are looking for is just to have a Saturday of different events where Amish made goods could be sold and if possible a demonstration on making one of the goods. If there is any information that could be passed along it would be very helpful! We are located about an hour east of Jefferson City if that helps with our proximity! Thanks!

    Comment on Dreams crushed by Amish Mennonite Business in PA (October 10th, 2014 at 19:17)

    Dreams crushed by Amish Mennonite Business in PA

    I have always dreamed of having something built by the true masters of the trade.
    I would love some advice on what to do.
    On Dec. 23, 2013, I hired Custom Built Decks, LLC from Peach Bottom, PA
    First mistake, I trusted this man that came to my house. I had got a good review from a co-worker, that he did several decks for people in the building. But, that was 6 years ago. He had promised me he could have the job done in 3 days. I received drawing from him, but the county wanted another. He told me he would take care of getting the permit, and sent his wife to get it. She was also denied. All they wanted was a plat drawing. I never got a permit for the project. He sends a sub-contractor to tear down my deck
    after months of waiting. Then I don’t hear anything from him.
    Long story short, he agreed to return my deposit, which was a large some of money. I drove to PA from MD to get two checks, I deposited them. They both bounced. He asked me to wait a few weeks, then redeposit them. He told me the money would be in his account. They both bounced again. For the past three weeks, he has told me he would bring me the money, then no word or no show. I really don’t want to press charges against John, but he is leaving me no choice. This has ruined the past ten months of my life. If anyone has any suggestions, please send me a message or call me at 443-924-1967
    Thank you

    bus tickets

    On 03/11/15 an Amish gentleman bought 9 bus tickets from our gas station, we sell Jefferson bus tickets. The gentleman paid with a check for the tickets going from Vermillion SD to Eau Claire WI. The employee thought the check went through our system and gave the check back. The check did not go through, therefore the tickets were not paid for. We don’t want to cancel the tickets, we just need to get the check back. If anyone can help me, please email or call us at 715-223-6788.

    Road Map for Lancaster shops

    Looking to purchase a road map for the Lancaster, PA area similar to the one I got for Berlin, Charm, Sugarcreek, Millersburg, OH that shows all the local Amish shops both main street and back road. It sold in the local stores for $3.95. I would like to do my homework before my trip this summer. Is there one available like this? If so how may I obtain it? Thank You

    I am moving to Tennessee and want to move to Ethridge in particular where there is a huge Old Order Amish community. I have been there many times and love it there. I am looking for a house with a barn and acreage yet close enough to the road where I can get good views of the Amish going back and forth all day. I really want to have good views of the Amish from my front porch more than anything, but I don’t know how to search for that online because there are very few google street views in Ethridge. Can someone from Ethridge or someone familiar with Ethridge offer any suggestions?

    Looking to contact Amish fencing contractor in Halifax county, Va

    We hired an Amish man in northern Halifax County Virginia to do some fencing for us a few years ago. He did a good job and now we have an additional 1000 feet of fencing we need to have done. It is all new woven wire fencing with no old fence and on clear pasture land, no brush. We don’t have a contact phone number for this gentleman but hope someone will see this posting and let him or us know.

    How do I find Amish Woodworkers?

    I live in Youngstown, OH with Amish craftsmen all around in every direction, but I can’t find them. For years I have been buying Amish made products from a wholesaler in Missouri and having them shipped here.
    There must be some way to locate local Amish manufacturers that I can deal with directly.

      Ted, check with the Amish & Mennonite Heritage Center near Berlin, OH. Their phone number is: 330-893-3192 or send an email to: director@amheritagecenter.com. They did not have a directory available, but they were able to put me in touch with a few craftsmen who I could then deal with directly. I hope this helps.
