I grew up in a Mennonite farming community in Saskatchewan and travel back there regularly and get farmers sausage from my cousin. However, I would to get some closer to home and I am wondering where I can get some here in Michigan. I would appreciate any help.

    Looking to hire


    My name is Michael Fillmore and I am looking to hire an Amish carpenter to help me with a cedar deck. My father lived in Gladwin, MI. and passed away suddenly this fall. He had orignally contracted with a local Amish caprenter to build his cedar deck and gazebo.

    I need some repairs done along with power-washing and staining of the said deck and would like to get it done prior to another winter on the deck and gazebo.

    Please feel free to contact me at (734) 260-9043 if you know of someone who is honest, hardworking and available to assist me.

    Kind regards,

    Michael Fillmore

      Driving for the Amish

      Jim I know a lot of folks who drive the Amish advertise their services via message boards in local stores patronized by Amish. Probably about the best way if you are just starting I would think: http://amishamerica.com/message-boards/

      van service

      I read your post to my son, Mark. He said that Alfred Gingerich is the bishop in the Manton, Michigan community. If you contacted him he could probably spread the word through his community.

    Looking to have a home built

    Hello. My name is Angela, and I would like to have a home built, here in Kingsley Michigan. I have seen the quality of work the Amish community does with woodworking, and was hoping to see if there was anyone locally that may be available to do this. I have never had a house built, so if anyone could do it, I would need price ranges too. The Manton community is the closest to me. If anyone has any info, please leave me a message. Thank you 🙂

    Amish food products

    Could someone please contact me as to where I might find some Amish butter, or home grown food products to the nearest location for me. I live in the U.P. of Michigan is there anywhere in my area? I saw something in Engidine but it didn’t say if they sold any of their goods or where I might find some.

    Thanks so much,
    Lynn Dionne

      I have two suggestions:
      1) Call Chupp’s Herbs and Fabrics at 269-659-3950 and see if they know of any Amish families that serve group meals in their home. Chupps is at Burr Oak, Michigan, about 15 miles from Coldwater.

      2) The Shipshewana/Lagrange County Indiana Visitors Guide lists six Amish homes in that area who serve group meals in their homes. Call the Shipshewana/Lagrange County Visitor’s Center at 800-254-8090 if you would like further information. That area would be about 30 miles from Coldwater. I have been to two Amish homes for group meals, and each time it was a very enjoyable experience and the food was delicious!

    Comment on Manual well pump (August 3rd, 2016 at 06:04)

    Manual well pump

    I have an unused traditional electric pumped well on my property– last used in 2014– would like to convert it to a manually pumped water well.
    It is a deep well with static water level deeper than 25ft.
    I would like the type of hand pump typically used on Amish farms and cannot find an installer in the well drilling/pump repair industry who is interested in this “small job”.
    Property located in Gaylord MI area so freeze proof is also a requirement
    Thank you

    home addition

    We have had an amish man and his sons add an addition to our home in Ohio. We were very impressed with the craftsmanship and would like to see if there is any amish builders that could add an addition on to our lake home in Jerome, Michigan in Hillsdale county. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Comment on Barry county Michigan Amish (June 27th, 2017 at 06:35)

    Barry county Michigan Amish

    I am putting together a book about Barry county Michigan and would like to include the Amish that reside in Barry county in that book. I don’t have a clue who to contact, how to contact and where to contact them. I basically would like to interview someone from their community, take photo’s of their farming equipment, buggies, workshops, baked goods, quilts, etc. I have driven through the area where they live, but have never approached anyone about this. I just don’t know what their “feelings” are toward “outsiders”. I don’t know if they still do not allow photo’s of people. Could someone please contact me on how to go about this? It is very important to me.
    Thank you so much,

    Looking for Pallet boards.

    There is an Amish pallet mill around the McBain Michigan area. I was wondering if there is a place like that near Detroit.
    We are looking to get a couple bundles to do home improvement with the boards.
    Hope there is a closer place.
