Since 2012 there has been a small community of Amish people in eastern Idaho, not far from the town of Salmon.

This video report takes us to an Amish-owned market owned by the Paul Miller family. Locals seem pleased to have the Amish in town:

The bulk of the above video is on the Miller family’s Country Market and the produce, cheese, and other products it offers.

Paul does answer when asked why they chose to settle in Salmon: “Conservative, laid-back, community-minded people…oh yeah we love the mountains.”

Amish this far west are rare. As noted here, the only community further west is found at Rexford, Montana.

Amish previously lived in Idaho on one other occasion, in the early 2000s at Bonners Ferry.
