    Kentucky Amish Directory Needed

    Hi All,

    As a hobby, I travel out to meet the scribes for the Amish newspapers The Budget & Die Botschaft. I plan to take a trip to Kentucky in 9 days to meet some of them. The problem is I don’t have an Amish directory for Kentucky. (like I do for a number of other states) Would anyone that reads this forum happen to have one?

    My hopes are to ask you to help me look up a couple of the scribe address’s to make it easier to get to them. Once I meet them I am sure I can either buy a directory or at least look at theirs for my next stop. Please either respond here or feel free to email me at my address below. I plan to leave 12-18-14. Thanks for your help!

      Do you still need this info about Budget scribes in Ky? If so, I have at least two names and addresses to send you. I tried to send it to your email listed, but it came back undeliverable, so please post your current email if you want me to send you that info. Also, I have found that the book, Who is Who in the Budget to be a good source for such info. I believe the book costs about $10 at the present time, and it can be obtained from The Budget office at Sugarcreek.

    Need a home addition and barn repairs

    I have just purchased a farm in Henry county north of Franklinton and I need a bedroom & bathroom addition put on the house and some remodel on the kitchen and living room.

    I also have two metal barns that need painting and some touch up inside and an old tobacco that needs some shoring up and roof repair.

    Does anyone know of some Amish craftsman in the area I could contact to help with this?

      Call Roman Raber at the Farmstead Market and see if Marlin Miller is available. Marlin is a contractor in Defoe but said he had a lot of contract work already in progress as of this week. Worth a try!

    Franklinton is not far from Pleasureville, where there is a small, rather new Amish community. Have you contacted the Amish at The Farmstead Market at Pleasureville? They may know of someone in their Amish community, or other Amish carpenters, who may be able to do the work you need. Their phone number is 502-878-4211. There also is an Amish restaurant in Pleasureville, and the Amish who operate the restaurant may be able to help you out. I can’t remember the restaurant’s name, but the Raber’s at Farmstead Market could tell you. I haven’t been out to Pleasureville since Jan. 2016, but I think the Market (which is in the country) and the restaurant are still in operation.

    Yoder's Bulk Food Store

    Hi! My husband and I will be traveling through Marion Co., KY in the next few days. The last time we were through that area, we visited a Yoder’s Bulk Food Store (grocery store). We would like to go there again while in the area. Can anyone tell me where the store is located? We just happened upon it the last time and don’t know if we can find it again. Thanks for your help.

      The only Amish settlement I know of in Marion County is at Gravel Switch, in the eastern part of the county, though there may be other settlements there. I have never been to Gravel Switch, but I have heard there are Amish living in the Riley Road area, which is about 9 miles east of Lebanon, Ky., right off Hwy 68. You might also go 3 miles further east from Riley Road to Gravel Switch and ask someone in Gravel Switch where Yoder’s store is. Hope this helps.

    Questions about Amish farmers.

    Several years ago I went to Crab Orchard, Kentucky and bought apples and peaches from an Amish farm. I can not remember the name of the place! The lady that had told me about the place is no longer with us. If anyone could help me with what the name of the place may be I’d greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

    Comment on New Amish Settlement (June 21st, 2017 at 21:00)

    New Amish Settlement

    I read in the June 14 edition of The Budget about a new Amish community that is developing. It is in Greenup, Kentucky, which is in the extreme northeastern part of Ky. on the Ky./Ohio border.
    As of now, there should be four Amish families there. Two families moved there in Feb., one family in March, and one family in June. It seems like Amish from Columbia, Ky., are the ones beginning that community.

      Amish in Greenup Co Kentucky

      Do you know if the Amish in Greenup Co Kentucky are still residing there. I am interested in finding produce for sale. Your post was from 2017 and now it is June 2018.. Greenup County is one county over from myself. Thanks for any input.

        I have not been to the Greenup Amish settlement, but I know it is still very much there since a scribe from that community continues to regularly send in news to The Budget newspaper. In the June 13 edition, they mentioned about a new family who has recently moved to the community. I don’t know any specifics about anyone selling produce, but I think it’s worth a visit to check it out.

    Comment on Would love to stay with Amish people to experience their lifestyle (August 29th, 2017 at 13:51)

    Would love to stay with Amish people to experience their lifestyle


    I was wondering if it is at all possible to stay for a weekend with my husband and a 2 year old daughter at one of the Amish families somewhere in KY. We would love to volunteer and help them with their daily activities, yard work, cleaning, cooking, laundry or whatever else is needed. I feel very tired of this lifestyle we live in today. We would love to get to know the Amish people, and experience their daily life, their culture and traditions, and we would love my daughter to be part of it as I know she will absolutely enjoy that too. Thank you in advance.
    P.S we do own a house in Louisville KY, and both my husband and I have jobs :)just did not want anyone to be concerned that we are trying to find a shelter :)Thanks!!

    Quilting shop near Crab Orchard

    I have seen a sign on the right side of the road as we go south on KY 39 from Lancaster towards KY 150 to Mt. Vernon that says “quilting…” I can’t remember details of the sign. I can find no listings for it. Any information I can pass onto a friend will be helpful.

    Mundfordville, KY AMISH 20 MILE LOOP

    Looking for a map of this loop, any suggestions greatly appreciated!

      Comment on Kentucky Amish (November 5th, 2017 at 16:25)

      Charles — I have been to the Munfordville, Ky., Amish settlement many times and haven’t heard of the Munfordville Amish 20 Mile Loop. But, I do have a suggested map for the “loop”. Here it is:

      From Munfordville, take Ky 88 (Cub Run Hwy) west to Cub Run. In Cub Run at the main intersection, turn right on Priceville Rd/Ky 728. The road goes north, then loops to the right/east to Priceville. At Priceville, take Raider Hollow Road/Ky-1140 back to Munfordville.

      This is a beautiful ride, especially in the spring and fall. Very hilly in several spots. Drive slowly, as there are no buggy lanes, and you can come upon a buggy before you know it. There are many small Amish farms on either side of the main highways and several stops I would suggest — Anna’s Jams and Jellies at 1985 Logsdon Valley Road, Miller’s Greenhouse and Furniture at 2375 Macon-Kessinger Road and Detweiler’s Country Store at 12825 Priceville Road. There is also an Amish hardware store at the main intersection in Cub Run.

      I consider the Munfordville Amish settlement to be very spread out. There is what I call the main part (which is the “loop” I outlined above). This is all north of the Green River, west of I-65. Then there is another part east and south of Munfordville, focusing on the Rowletts area. (Two interesting stops in that part are Abe’s Place (Amish Consignment Shop) at 2915 S. Dixie Hwy, and R & S Grocery and Bakery on 235 Irvin Cemetery Road (off Dixie Hwy, south of Munfordville). The other part of the settlement is south of the Green River (west of I-65) that you get to by going west from Rowletts on Rowletts Cave Spring Road.

      I hope you enjoy your drive through the Munfordville settlement.

    Comment on cub run, hart county furniture (March 24th, 2018 at 21:21)

    cub run, hart county furniture

    Referring to Al in Ky notes Miller’s Greenhouse and Furniture at 2375 Macon-Kessinger Road does not sell/build furniture anymore. His nephew Andrew Miller has taken over the business. His address is Miller wood products, 1535 cherry springs rd, cub run, ky 42729. ph 270 524 5718. Andrew build custom doors, cabinets and furniture from reclaimed barnwood. He also sells furniture from Amish furniture makers in OH. He has a small building stocking a few items and has got a whole bunch of catalogs. We purchased custom furniture thru him. I compared prices with a number of sellers and online places and he was 10-20% cheaper.

    I agree with the loop Al suggested it is very pretty country drive.
    We also went to the R&S Bakery & Grocery. Their pecan pie was delicious as well a their donuts and other bakery goodies.

    Thanks Mathews for posting this update re: Miller’s Furniture. I had last been to Millers on Macon-Kessinger Road in April 2017 so appreciate the update they no longer sell furniture. I’ll be going back to the Munfordville area this spring, so will be interested in visiting at Andrew Miller’s Wood Products.

      Comment on Kentucky Amish (June 5th, 2018 at 01:36)

      I don’t have any specific information about an Amish metal roofer, but I do have a suggestion. I think the Amish settlement at Crab Orchard, Ky., may be the closest one to Nicholasville. They have a good Amish produce auction there which is supported by many Amish in that community. You might try calling the auction and leaving a message about your need for a roofer and see if you get a response. The phone number is 606-355-0030. Or, if you have time, you might go to an auction and talk with some of the people at the auction. The auctions are held on Mondays at 1 p.m., and Wednesdays and Fridays at 11 a.m. The address is 2896 Ky Hwy 39 N., Crab Orchard, Ky.
