The Lone Star State is known for a lot of things, but not its Plain population. But a remote corner of Texas harbors a small Amish community, in existence since 1999. In the environs of Beeville in Bee County, an hour north of Corpus Christi, you’ll find a small Amish community of a single congregation in size. Amish in the Bee County settlement work in a variety of occupations including produce growing, beekeeping, horse training, buggy making, and horseshoeing.
The Bee County settlement is not Texas’s first Amish community. Over the years Amish have made a numer of attempts to establish a presence in the state. Locations of former Amish settlements include Hale County, Hidalgo County, and Dimmit County.
In the 1980s an atypical settlement of Amish migrant workers arose in the area of Stephenville, in Erath County. That community has since disbanded. Read more on the Bee County settlement and previous Texas Amish communities in a feature article on Texas Amish.
Roots of Amish furniture
Amish have deep roots in agriculture. But alternative occupations, such as small home-based businesses, have become popular in Amish society in recent years, among Texas Amish and others. One reason for the rise of entrepreneurship is difficult farming conditions–either due to high land prices, or a poor growing environment..
Amish settlers to the West and other less-common locations have often depended upon small businesses such as woodworking shops in order to make a living (see Amish settlements in Montana or Colorado). The present Amish population in Texas is no different, having established small shops along with limited agriculture, at least partially in response to the local growing conditions.
Another reason Amish have gravitated to furniture making and similar occupations is the opportunity for home family life it provides. Crafting high-quality furniture in a small shop located a stone’s throw from one’s front door is a rewarding position for many Amish to find themselves in.
Amish men, heads of household and typically the primary breadwinners, are able to work in close proximity to family as well as earn a living doing a manual trade that allows them to exercise creativity–and without requiring higher formal education to perform. Family can and often is involved in the business, from wives to sons and daughters who help with furniture production and management of the business side of the operation.
Where to buy Amish furniture in Texas
Buying Amish furniture in Texas is easy. The most obvious choice for residents of larger Texas cities such as Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Austin, among others, is to visit a local Texas Amish furniture outlet. With well over a dozen Amish furniture retailers in the Lone Star state, most major Texas cities either have an Amish furniture seller in the immediate vicinity or within a short drive. Visiting an Amish furniture store allows you to peruse various lines of furniture, or in some cases to place a special order for custom furniture made by an Amish craftsman. Most Amish furniture sellers have arrangements with Amish wood workers in Midwestern or Eastern states, who in turn fulfill customer orders and keep their many retail stores across North America supplied.
An alternative to buying direct from an Texas Amish furniture retailer would be to visit an Amish community in person and purchase straight from an Amish craftsman. This is also a popular option, particularly in states with sizeable Amish populations. However, remember that not all Amish sell furniture direct to the public, instead maintaining a wholesale relationship with their dealers, who essentially provide them a window into markets in other states and around the nation. Since Texas’ Amish populati0n is relatively small, this strategy would likely require a good bit of travel, at the least to another Midwestern State with an established Amish population and Amish furniture industry.
A final option for Texas Amish furniture shoppers would be tofrom an internet dealer. There are numerous such Amish furniture retailers present on the web, and many provide delivery to Texas addresses, and for that matter locations across the nation. While the Texas Amish population may remain small today, residents of America’s second-largest state have a number of options for buying Amish woodcraft.
