    Looking for Amish horse trainers closest to Syracuse NY

    Looking for some Amish horse trainers to consider to break my mare drive team to ride. Hoping to locate a few to consider within an hour or two from Syracuse area. Any farms someone could give me locations of, since no way to make contact other than to drive there. Thanks for any suggestions.

      Driving horse trainers

      I see you were also looking for an Amish trainer who might train horses to drive. I too am looking for someone near Lewis County in the Adirondacks? Thank you and if you know anyone I sure would appreciate any info you could give me?

    Hoping to have an Amish penpal

    I am hoping to find an Amish penpal. I have a great respect for the Amish and would love to have a friendship through the mail. I have a large family and my kids hope to have penpals too. I understand that contact with outsiders are limited and we understand how this may not be possible but we are hopeful. Any suggestions on how to find a penpal would be great. Thank You

    Selling our home

    We are in the process of preparing to sell our home in Carlisle, NY. We know that there is a growing community of Amish in the area and are wondering if there would be interest in purchasing the home.

    The home sits on 12 acres of land, has a wood burning stove, a spring fed well, two sheds, a large driveway area.

    If interested, please have someone contact me.

    Thank you

      Comment on Maybe you should go to talk to them? (June 19th, 2016 at 17:09)

      Maybe you should go to talk to them?

      I don’t think the Amish are going to be cruising articles about the Amish, and just happen to see that you are selling a house. Something tells me you’re not a good guy to deal with.

        Home for sale.

        I am actually a great person. I am a God fearing man. I am trying to sell this farm for my old boss his wife passed away in Florida in there summer home. It is to hard on him to come home every summer it reminds him of his wife to much. He asked me to try to reach out to the Amish because he really would like to sell the farm to them. I literally do not know any way to contact Amish community and assumed this site might be a good way, sorry to bother you and feel free to take this post down.
        Thank you

          Comment on It's fine (June 20th, 2016 at 13:42)

          It's fine

          Hi Bob, it is fine to post that here, people do post various offers from time to time on this site, directed towards Amish people.

          It’s true that I don’t know how effective it will be in terms of reaching Amish people – while we do have some Amish readership, the majority of Amish are getting their news media in more traditional forms like newspapers and newsletters.

          That said, I have heard of Amish people finding things on this site through some unexpected paths 🙂 In any case I hope you can find a buyer soon, Amish or not.

    Was wondering if any of the Amish communities buy Treadle Sewing Machines? I have collected may over the years and most are in beautiful condition. I assume that is what they quilt with and make their clothing. If it is something they would be interested in let me know thank you.

    Comment on Land and cabin (April 3rd, 2015 at 21:36)

    Land and cabin

    I live an hour north of Syracuse, in the middle of a large Amish community. I’m selling 14 acres with a partially furnished cabin, two outbuildings, and a tractor. The cabin was built by the Amish. It’s fully insulated and has a propane wall heater installed. The flooring has not been installed, but comes with the house, and it needs drywall hung. The property has a 4 acre open field, the rest wooded, tons of wildlife and edible wild plants. Less than a mile to town, but surrounded on all sides by trees, so nice and private. It’s a lovely property that is being sold through no fault of its own – my husband recently became disabled, so it has to go. I’m asking $50,000, negotiable. We can do owner financing for the right person, with a decent down payment. sidhewf@gmail.com

    Comment on Buggy wheels (May 29th, 2015 at 14:42)

    Buggy wheels

    I have an old set of 4 buggy wheels in what look like usable condition–spokes fit tight, no soft wood, no movement, no damage. Iron around hubs, iron rims. They had always been stored indoors. Still have their original faded red paint. I’d like to sell them to someone who will use them, and not let them rot as lawn decorations. Scotia, NY area. Can anyone tell me whether there is any market for these, and where I might sell them, or what price range they would fall into?
    Thanks for any info.

      Buggy wheels

      how much do you want for them. I am restoring an amish buggy. The going rate which I bought four last year was 100 dollars for fairly good useable. Most amish in my community are going to fiberglass/titanium wheels due to the durability factor.

    Comment on Wow! What a Lively Dialogue! (June 30th, 2015 at 19:14)

    Wow! What a Lively Dialogue!

    Hello, Eric and friends: I grew up in Essex County NY, but have not lived there since the early 60s. I have enjoyed reading the questions and answers concerning the Amish, their settlements and commercial activity in NYS.

    We stopped at a rest area along I-88 a few years ago. As I entered the building, an older gentleman (I assume, the attendant) looked me over quizzically. He asked: “what are you?” I am plain dressed, so accustomed to being starred at, but his question startled me! I was uncharacteristically speechless! He said: “are you a Jew?” No. “Amish?” No. Then he proceeded to tell me that his relatives had just sold a farm to some Amish people. He declared: “the Amish are going to save New York State!” When I got back to the car, I asked my wife: “I wonder if they know that??!!!”

    I am a girl of 15. I live in New York, for years, I have wanted to live with the Amish and I have not found a way to. This is my last resort and it seems you know a lot of Amish. I fear that if I do not have a chance to join them I will die alone. I am not Amish, but I feel like I belong with them. Please, help me.

      Joining The Faith

      Greetings Jasmine. Spending time working with and living among the Missouri and Illinois Amish communities, I can tell you it is certainly possible to convert. It takes a strong willing desire to come away from many conveniences of the world. Not many are able to deny themselves the modern conveniences. If you are serious and willing to be diligent to guard your heart from becoming attached to the world’s vices you can pursue your future. The schoolhouse teacher at one of the communities near us is the daughter of one who has converted from those of world to the Amish life. If you are interested I could put you in contact with her.

    If you’re really concerned about your automobile then enclosed vehicle transport may be the
    suitable option. Here again, the very role of international car shipping company can’t be undermined anyways.

    Also, discuss with to friends and relatives for virtually any advice on auto shipping services
    they could have used inside the past.

    New York State Amish Roofers

    I am looking for Amish to replace my roof in Delaware County in Up State New York State, because my roof is for an Old Historic Barn that I know only the Amish will know how to properly repair, and preserve for generations to come. This is my home. I apologize for working with a low budget looking for the best bidder from the Amish who I would love to see do this work. Thank you and God Bless You.

    American Artist, Amish Content

    I am an American Painter of some renown. I am very interested in finding an Amish Community where I might be able to live amongst, or at least visit and interact a number of days each week, for a period of a few months, preferably in the summer. I am also willing to work a couple of days a week in whatever capacity needed, to broaden my experience. I wish to do a whole series of paintings about the people, their culture, and my experiences there. I am respectful, and willing to abide by any rules or requirements set forth by the community, and would welcome any suggestions.

    Old Order in Ostego Co NY

    The settlement here slightly overlaps Chenango County and Madison County as well. There are 4 Churches. Mostly agricultural, a lot of sawmills a few stores for canvas goods,a couple harness shops a few nice dry goods stores, furniture shops, and a couple grocery stores as well. Some very good framers and carpenters. Nice to see new barns go up all around. Some are just starting to leave however ( 2 families just yesterday)for a new settlement in or near Lyndon Kansas. I guess the grass is always greener.
