      Amish Pen Pals

      If you can get yourself a copy of The Budget, that is THE Amish newspaper and they are listings in there for penpals—or you could put your own listing in there.

        I don’t think they accept Amish pen pal listings actually, or don’t anymore. I was asked to let that be known a while back. Here’s the page for the pen pal topic:http://amishamerica.com/how-can-i-find-an-amish-pen-pal/

    information request

    I am living in Madison, WI and searching for volunteer assembly work. I am also trained in office work. I sent two resumes to the Akron, Pennsylvania office today. My grandmother was mixed with Pennsylvania German blood and has Pennsylvania geneology somewhere but we know her from Rutland, Illinois. I have seen the Amish people outside but mainly just want to mention that I know about her industrious approach. I would like to learn more about this so I can concentrate better and nurture my interest in helping.
    I do not have it with me but I have a public aid case number. I also am a food coop member but not in Madison because I am in the process of joining a new one in Bloomington-Normal, IL. I have worked in Bloomington at the State Job Center as a temporary. I have a Social Security job list and have worked at four jobs in Madison since living here. I have also volunteered at the Dane County Farmer’s Market under Manager Larry Johnson.

      There is an Amish gentleman near Marytown/St Anna area that does furniture and cabinets, etc.
      They also have a wonderful bakery.
      Your location would be helpful.

        Custom furniture

        We’re not looking in any particular area for the furniture. We would go where ever and go spend the day and enjoy the adventure of our trip. We are south of Milwaukee.

    Experienced writers needed

    I write non-fiction books about personal experiences with the Anabaptists. But, I’m in my 79th year on earth and could defer to writers who have had or will have experiences with these pain people in the state of WI.
    I’ve written 8 non-fiction books about them, and working on 9 and 10, with room for your writings that have been read by a friend, and proofed by a proofreader.
    I’ll watch for your reply on this site. Google my full name to see what Amazon and others might be listing under other sellers. I have none of my books left out of 8,500 copies sold.

    I live in Walworth county. There are no Amish. There are in rock co. The next county over. I could see the store owner not calling the police. He was ripping people off. But that store, and all their Walworth county footage is all scenery I have never seen before.

    • Comment on Wisconsin Amish (March 28th, 2014 at 11:31)

      There is one Amish settlement listed in Rock & Green Counties according to this comprehensive 2013 listing: http://kb.osu.edu/dspace/bitstream/handle/1811/57700/JAPAS_Donnermeyer_Luthy_vol1-issue2_pp107-129.pdf?sequence=1

      There’s no settlement listed for Walworth County. Sometimes Amish spill over into the adjacent county, but this settlement looks like it is situated on the opposite side of Rock Co. Like others have said, I wouldn’t rely on much you see on shows like this.

    Amish near Coloma

    I believe there is still a really nice Amish owned and run greenhouse in Coloma. I’ve seen several homes in that area.
