    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

    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.

    Amish Mall

    I wish to go to the Amish Mall in Prattsburgh, NY. I haven’t been there in years and can’t remember exactly where it is. I am thinking it might be on Mattoon Road. Can any one tell me exactly where it is? Thanks you.

    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??!!!”

      Hi Bill, thanks for your comment, I am a little late replying but just swinging back through here :) Funny story, I think we should at least try to spread the word to them so the NY Amish are not uninformed of their task!

    Joining The Faith

    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.

    New York Amish

    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.
