      Ethridge Tn "Old Order Amish"

      HI, my name is Donna Corbin and I live among the Ethridge “Old Order” Amish. I really admire and respect them and their believes. I deal and do business with them all the time and for the most part you can take whatever they say to the bank. You don’t need their signature on a piece of paper. Every man has his own trade and craft. Makes great neighbors and I never have to raise a garden. Everything I need is just right next door or down the road. Great place to live! And just to clarify, there is 5000 plus Amish in Ethridge, Tn.

        Ethridge, Tn "Old Order Amish"

        Hi, I live in North Georgia near Chattanooga, Tn and have seen several Old Order Amish in our local Wal-Mart and was wondering if anyone knew of an Amish community near our area? I would love to find out. I absolutely respect their sense of community, family, and culture. Thank you.

          Amish in Chattanooga area

          Amanda, you have probably seen some of the Amish community from Benton, TN. They are not far from Chattanooga and I could easily imagine them going to the area you indicated.

            Delano Mennonites

            The community outside of Benton are Mennonites. They have a small farmer’s market and make mini-barns. Be sure to dress conservatively if you visit :)

          Amish elsewhere in Tennessee

          Yes, there are other settlements not mentioned on this site. The closet one to the Chatt area that I know of is at Delano, about 70 miles south of Knoxville on US 411. They have even developed an off-spring near the community of Englewood

        Hi Donna,

        I had to have a Black Walnut cut down several years ago and had it cut into rough planks. I’d like some furniture made from it. Can you give my information to someone who might be interested in doing it? Or forward their information? My email is cathy@cedarmontfarm.com.

        Thank you so much!

              Amish furniture delivery

              I understand you might be feeling antsy…I have no idea which particular business or community you are referring to, but if you want, my 2 cents: Since it is technically still the fall for another month, it sounds like you are still within the promised time frame. However, if you are truly concerned, why not give a call, if you have a phone#, or send a letter of your own?

              It’s possible this person got behind in their work. Amish businesses tend not to be so formal and bureaucratic, so you don’t necessarily get progress updates on a regular basis as you might expect with other companies. I would guess you haven’t been forgotten but it might be worth checking into for your own peace of mind.

                Amish don’t have phones, but, if paid him, I feel sure that you will get a letter within the next few months.

                • Comment on Tennessee Amish (November 19th, 2012 at 12:40)

                  Generally many Amish do have phone access but if you are talking about the conservative people at Ethridge TN that is less likely to be an option. If I were you I would send a letter myself, if for nothing but peace of mind.

                Amish Furniture

                Amish Furniture is well made and well worth the wait. Several years ago, I ordered an Oak Bedroom set. I waited about two years for this. I was in Graduate school at the time so I was in no hurry. The pieces of the bedroom set survived the May 2010 Nashville Flood. We took Orange Oil to bring the furniture back to life after a river came thru our home in Bellevue.

              Amish Furniture Delivery

              If I were you I would send the individual a letter to inquire about when your furniture will be ready.If I were not orginally from Lawrence County I would be concerned about the six month time frame. Crops, etc are usually more of a priority to the Amish. However, you do need to know when your furniture will be ready. I would send the furniture maker a letter to inquire about when your furniture will be ready. When you send the letter to request this information, I would include a self addressed stamped envelope so that the builder can get the information to you quickly. Hope these suggestions are helpful.

      Just wanted to ask you a question "Erik"

      Erik,
      I wanted to just ask you a short question; As
      I’m glad to see settlement of Amish in Ethridge
      TN. I’m from TN myself and wanted to just
      Know how the communities in Ethridge are
      doing, and is there some Mennonites within
      That Amish Settlement?
      I’ve always appreciated and respected both
      Amish/Mennonites due to thier commitment
      To God. I know no one is perfect and that
      There is problems that sometimes occur,
      Same as the English culture. I’m 51 years old
      And was recently discouraged not being able
      To become Amish/Mennonite due to my Army
      Service, even though I never served in war
      Time? I served at an early age, but was told
      By a Bishop & the Ordung that I cannot become
      Amish? I speak fluent German but, not PA Dutch
      Dialect, I don’t use a lot of new world technology
      Like computers, tv, radio ect., I do sometimes
      Use a smartphone that I’m on now only for
      Minimal usage.
      Anyways, hope all is well with you and your
      Answers would be much appreciated.
      God Blessings,
      Arthur
      P.S. you can email me directly if you choose

        Art the long-established Ethridge community seems to be steady or growing, and there may very well be Mennonite churches in the vicinity, as is often the case near sizeable Amish communities, but I haven’t investigated it. I know of at least one Amish person who joined the church following military experience.

          Thank You Erik

          Erik,
          Wanted to say thank you for your response,
          you see some English people call me a wierdo
          or outsider because I follow the bible very
          strictly: since I don’t use a lot of worldly things
          and they think I love people too much. I feel
          very left out, even though I did serve in the Army
          to show my commitment to my country. I never
          served in war time and I’m a very peaceful
          Person, avoiding all confrontations. My belief
          is to not use the police or sue someone just
          because some owe me; I just forget about it
          and move on. I have turned my other cheek
          If someone hits me, because that’s how I
          Interpret the bible and, also Gods desire to
          show love anyways.
          I in fact had more German friends when I served
          In the Army, than English friends. I learned
          the German language well but, like I said I don’t
          Know how hard the PA Dutch dialect would be
          to learn? I want to thank you again for your answers
          and will make contact with some in Ethridge, TN,
          may be they can give me some insights?
          God’s Blessings to you Erik,
          Bros. Art

            Thank you for reminding me to stand my ground no matter what! Teaching summer camp this year and that is the theme, “Stand Your Ground”.
            I am very interested in the Amish communities. I was raised to believe that the church I was in was the only way to heaven. I have come to know Jesus personally and I love to find more people that love Him.
            I am also interested in visiting a community.

    THINGS TO DO

    I VISITED ETHRIDGE THIS past November with some of my church members. We took a buggy ride, and stopped at several homes. This was very enjoyable, but felt we missed some of the area Are there any shops which sell amish quilts and items? Some of the ladies who missed the trip is asking me to take them.

  • Comment on Tennessee Amish (April 18th, 2011 at 17:00)

    Tennessee Amish quilts

    Regeana, there are a lot of shops which sell baskets, rugs, and so on. You definitely do have some quilt business as well; it’s not going to be like Lancaster County, but there should be some.

    The thing to do is to stop by the “Amish Welcome Center” near the main drag at the center of the community. They have free maps listing Amish businesses. There are quite a few, around five dozen Amish homes at Ethridge have some sort of business, so definitely worth having the map.

    Also, if you haven’t seen it, try this post on the Ethridge Amish: http://amishamerica.com/the-amish-of-ethridge-tennessee/

    Ethridge Amish

    I have spend many days visiting the Amish in Ethridge. I have composed my own map detailing specific items. The map at the Welcome station is good but needs to be updated. If you visit, the best thing to do is get the map and just drive and read the signs in front of their homes. You just drive up and someone will come out.

      Comment on Tennessee Amish (March 18th, 2012 at 08:21)

      Connie, after becoming interested in the Amish and their ways of living, we soon discovered a small community in Polk County in Delano, TN. Look for their sign about Farm Produce that stands on US 411 just south of Delano. It is on the same road that access a winery. Take the first right hand turn, pass under a railroad tunnel and you are there. Unsure as to the order, but they are very conservative, yet friendly. The road is called Needle Eye Lane. Do not wear shorts or sleeveless clothes.
      There are several other Amish/Mennonite settlements on the Cumberland Plateau near Crossville. If you subscribed to The Budget (their communications network newspaper) you will discover several more.

    I just visited the Delano market in Polk County Tennessee this week! My Mom, sister and I went on a Wednesday and hit the jackpot. The fresh, homemade breads and bakery items were amazing! I bought tomato bread, pickled beets (to die for if you like them!)peanut butter cookies and fresh turnip greens. Oh, and the cinnamom roll was better than Cinnabon! They have tons of fresh produce, jams, jelly, sorgum molasses, honey, laundry detergent, soaps in all scents, brooms, horse tack, and one Saturday a month, live animal sales. They do ask with several signs that you be dresses properly, which includes no low cut tops or stap tops as the sign says. They are conservative but friendly, and will answer any questions you have. Have cash handy as they dont have electricity, so no debit machines. It is really neat looking out the back windows at the horse and buggies they have parked out there. If you are in the area, give them a try. You wont be sorry.

        I am interested in contacting Levi Yoder to discuss possibly doing a roof job in suburban Nashville. If you can get me a contact number for him, I would be most appreciative. We bought an outbuilding from Amish in Ohio about 18 years ago, and it was absolutely built like a Sherman tank. I have heard nothing but good reports about both Amish and Mennoites who go outside their communities to do work.

    Carpenter for barn construction

    Maria, The Amish in Ethridge are not allowed to travel outside their community (horse and buggy distance) to work. I would recommend calling Summetown Medals as they have contacts in Mennonite communities who can travel in vechicles. Summertown is just north of Ethridge. Their number is 931-796-1521. John or Eric Stoll and Perry Miller were extremely helpful when we were building.

      Amish Communities between Chattanooga and Knoxville

      There are two Amish communities in this area. One is in Delano off Hwy 411 in Polk county. The other one is on County Road 422 between Niota and Englewood in McMinn county.

        Amish in Englewood off county road 422

        I’d like to know more about the amish mentioned by one poster in Englewood. I was recently told by the guy that owns the market/deli in Greenback,Tn , right on hey 411 that the children from the Delano amish bought a farm near him and started having their own farmers market on saturdays. Can anyone confirm this ? Is this the same group as the amish who are on county road 422 ?
        I’d like more directions to their place if they have produce,etc to buy.

    Need construction help in Benton County, Tn

    Hi. I have a log cabin that needs repair work on eaves, external loft, and possibly roof replacement. As I am seasonal resident (only there throughout summer and during Christmas), I always have difficult time finding reliable, quality workers. I was told by neighbors that I should try to find Mennonite workers, but I do not know how. Can anyone help me by giving me contact name? I am more than willing to pay fair price. My main concern is fixing/preserving my beloved seasonal home. Thanks in advance for any information. ~Sherri

    Living in Clarksville TN / KY surrounding area

    I noticed no mention of the Amish/Mennonites living close to Clarksville and surrounding KY area. They are very friendly people selling the best furniture and buildings (sheds) I have owned one for about 15 years and really expect it to last a lifetime. Though they venture out some in cars and some in horse and buggy to store and restaurants they stay to themselves except when they sell their produce mostly on side of roads and in their communities.

    going to visit this friday

    I am going to take my family to lawrencburg and ethridge this Friday. I was told by my dad that I needed to go see Mrs. Gingridge (spell check)on Baffalo Road for pies at her home and to the Duster making mans house on Brace Road. Are these Road names correct and also. I would like to take my two boys age ten on a wagon ride and to see a living family house. Is this possible? Thank you in advance for your help.

      In and around Ethridge

      Hello,
      The lady on Buffalo Road is Mrs. Lizzie Gingerich – name on the mailbox is Menno E Gingerich. They have a small store in the back. Don’t know which direction you are coming from, but if it is from the south you will pass an old dairy operation on the right and it would be up from that on the left. Coming down from the north, it would be past Oaks store on the right. The riding duster is off South Brace on Amish Lane – easiest way from Lizzie is to go down Brooks Hughes (almost directly across the street) follow it till you cross the RR tracks and turn left, make the next left (crossing the RR tracks again) and continue a mile or so. Amish Lane will be on the right. Cross the RR tracks again (I am not kidding) and continue on their very long lane to the white house up on the hill which you can see as soon as you enter their lane.

          Ethridge Wagon Tour

          Hello,
          There is only one wagon tour now that Jerry’s has gone out of business. It starts at the Amish Welcome Center on the corner of Brewer Road and Highway 43. You will be able to see the outside of Amish farms and maybe a shop/business, but not go into their homes. Also, photos are not allowed.

    Interested in Amish/Mennonite Pen Pal

    I live in the Plateau area of Middle tn. and am interested in finding an Amish/Mennonite lady to write to. I have heard that it is hard to find a pen pal though. My family sometimes travels to Muddy Pond and visits the general store there, my personal favorite is the Sassafras Candy, my daddy likes the molasses. :)I just love all the beautiful quilts and crocheted items that they have so carefully made and sell, as I am a crocheter myself. I am a 26 yr old Christian lady, recently married to an elementary teacher. I find that my ways are too old fashioned for most young folks this day to understand, I grew up on a farm, my father is a farmer, and our whole family works the garden in the summer. It would be nice to correspond with someone who has a similar type of life because my friends are so very different from me and stare at me blankly when I talk about the farm, or the simple happiness of playing in the creek, or roaming in the mountains. :) Thanks to anyone in advance that could give me information.

      Pen Pals Wanted...

      Hi Katie I was wondering if you have found an Amish or Mennonite Pen Pal yet. I am also looking for an Amish or Mennonite Pen Pal. I know what you mean about people looking at you blankly, I have the same problem. I am a 51 year old lady from Newbern, Tn. and my husband is almost 69. He grew up Mennonite and he has always told me so many things about them, and we used to be really good friends with some Amish. I love anything about them, I am a newbie quilter and I’ve been learning to hand quilt but I’m trying to find an Amish or Mennonite lady that I would pay for her time if she would be willing to teach me more, but I am also looking for someone to converse with that understands. I was born and raised in West Virginia, the daughter of farmer in his youth.

    Delano Market

    We went to the Delano Market today(Sept.28). I spoke to the cashier who was from Holmes Co.,OH originally!He was very nice and interested in what I had to say!I had to resist the urge to speak my limited knowledge of PA Dutch to him!We took about 2 or 3 trips to look at the animals and come back for more food we wanted!I should have gotten that German Chocolate Pie when I had the chance!Has anyone ever tasted a Pineapple Lemon Pie? I wanted to know how it tastes because my husband likes pineapple and lemon.Is 7 dollars a good price for a single pie?We also got 20 little sweet peppers for 5 dollars.All in all,it was a wunderbaar gut day!

    Amish in Bledsoe County?

    I recently visited Falls Creek Falls State Park in Bledsoe County, and I got lost driving back from the park. I was driving on meandering back roads, and at one point I encountered two Amish women walking on the road, one of them pushing a bicycle. This was a big surprise to me because I had no idea that there were Amish living in Tennessee. However, I just now Googled Amish in Tennessee, and found no reference to a community living in Bledsoe County.
