    Wow, this is ambitious! I like the idea, I hope it goes well, it should provide a lot of information to people visiting or even living in Amish country wanting to stop in and get something or use a particular service. Ambitious!

    I haven’t looked closely, but is the content USA oriented, or are there, or will there be, Canadian businesses listed?

      Thank you

      Thanks for all the positive comments here. If there are any requests or ideas too, those are welcome.

      Shom you are right, I am aware of that, for some reason we neglected Canadian locations for a number of the categories (not very nice, I know… :) ).

      However you’ll see Canada listings for some sections, for restaurants and furniture for instance. For the other categories, I’ve asked my help to focus on getting those together, and as soon as I get them will add them in.

        Amish work Crews

        This sounds like a great idea.
        Do you have anywhere someone can post to hire Amish workers.

        I am looking to hire 1-2 work crews for barn deconstruction.
        Mostly in Michigan, but Ohio and some Indiana.
        Please contact Jim

        Hay balers:

        Hello. I live on the border of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Just outside of River Falls Wisconsin. Downing, wi and Prairie Farm, wi have Amish folks living around there. I just need a way to locate one or two of them who may be willing to bale a little hay for us. Can you make a connection for us?
        Thanks,
        Kristin

    Introducting the Amish Business Directory

    Oh, Erik, this is fantastic. It gives me places I can go visit when the snow melts away here in New York State. Thank you so much.

    Directory

    Are you including the addresses of the Amish publishing companies so we may find where to order “The Budget” (for example)?

      Comment on Introducing the Amish Business Directory (November 27th, 2013 at 18:47)

      I hadn’t thought about that Carol, may be a good idea. You should already be able to find Budget and other addresses here though: http://amishamerica.com/amish-publications-addresses-order-subscription-info/

      Some addresses in the post, others are in the comments.

    Do you just list advertisers with your blog or do you add any and all amish business? I have many for our Southern Indiana I could add.

    Comment on Introducing the Amish Business Directory (November 29th, 2013 at 05:58)

    Thanks for doing this major task, Erik. It is a great public service. I remember a year or so ago you had a posting on Amish
    salvage/bent & dent stores and several of us commented about how helpful it would be to have a directory of those. I’ll be on the lookout from now on to let you know of any additions I know of in any of the categories. I have one for the furniture store category: Miller’s Furniture and Greenhouse
    2375 Macon-Kessinger Road
    Munfordville, Ky. 42765
    Phone: 270-524-7684
    On their business card it says: A complete line of Amish crafted heirloom home and office furnishings.

    I have shopped there and think it’s a good store.
    Also, I was wondering, are you going to include Old Order Mennonite
    stores? I have shopped at several OOM hardware,bulk food, garden supply and variety stores in the Elma, Iowa and Wakarusa/Yellow Creek,Ind., settlements. I have found them to be good stores with good quality and very reasonable prices. They are very similar to Amish stores.

      Comment on Introducing the Amish Business Directory (November 29th, 2013 at 07:50)

      Thank you Al. While it’s primarily Amish businesses I am open to adding Old Order Mennonite businesses as well and I believe there are a few already included. So if you like feel free to send any of those along.

    Comment on My story (November 30th, 2013 at 13:22)

    My story

    This has nothing to do with Amish Business Directory, but it is such a beautiful story, I wanted to share. I am English and live in a remote part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. About a year and a half ago, I was reading through the Budget. I subscribed because I have such a great interest in the Amish beliefs. In that edition of the Budget, a woman by the name of Elsie (I am keeping their last name a secret for their privacy)had a little article that asked if anyone else suffered from atrial fibrilation. Well, I saw that she was looking for information from someone else who had it, and I do have atrialfibrilation. I wrote to Elsie who lives in the country not too far from Millersburg. Much to my amazement she wrote back to me. We have been pen pals ever since. In her last letter, she said she and Roy had a shanty with a phone in it which was shared by several other families. She gave me the extension, so I could leave a message. I called, left my phone number. You cannot believe how I felt when I saw her area code come up on my Caller ID. I answered “hello” and she said this is Elsie your penpal. We talked about an hour. I’m 65 and she is close to my age. Her husband is the same age as mine is. I finally got up the nerve to ask her something I have been wondering for some time. I said “Hubby and I have to travel to Erie, PA for my husband’s Family Reunion. How would you and Roy feel if we got a motel and came to visit you for a day or two?” She said that would be “wonderful”. Then she said “I’ll cook you a good Amish supper”. And, Roy would be so happy to talk to your husband about tractors (we have 5 antique ones). We talked some more and finally we were ready to say our goodbys. Elsie wanted me to call again so we could talk. I feel that the good Lord wanted her to talk to me on the phone. I also feel he has his hands on our visiting in August. On our way home, we will stay two days in a motel and visit with she and Roy and their children as much as we can. This is a Blessing from God.

      Comment on Great story! (December 3rd, 2013 at 20:23)

      Great story!

      I am happy for you and your pen pal. I once had an Amish harness maker in PA that I corresponded with for a number of years, but he wasn’t a “pen pal” … we just happened to share some common interests. Still it was interesting to get bits and pieces of news from him & I wish we had continued our written communication.

      So I say GOOD FOR YOU & GOOD FOR ELSIE; may your friendship blossom and grow, lasting for years to come.

    That’s truly a nice story, Jean! I’ve had a pen pal for over 47 years, and though neither of us is Amish, she does live very near Amish settlements in Ohio & often vacations there (she sends me photos).

    I’ve always considered her friendship a similar blessing, as a lot has happened in those 47 years (we were in grade school when we “met”), and we’ve always been there for one another. We’re like sisters!

    I’d like to hear about your future visit, if you’d like to share. I hope your friendship continues to grow!

      Where to find business directory

      Ivan if you mean the Lancaster County Business Directory, you can pick up a hard copy for free in many local businesses including Amish ones. Many of the businesses are Amish. http://amishamerica.com/lancaster-county-business-directory/

      The one referenced on this page is the only directory we have created and is only available here online (top menu link).
