      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 (January 23rd, 2014 at 17:02)

    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.

    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.

      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.

    Visit Amish family (May 4th, 2014 at 20:52)

    Visit Amish family

    I’m a Finnish excahnge student here in Wisconsin since August. I really find the Amish culture fascinating and a man in my Rotary club (I’m a Rotary exchange-student) had said he knew an Amish family and could take me to visit them which I think would be so interesting. The thing is though, that it might not happen now, and I’m wondering if there’s any opportunities to visit an Amish family for a day or so and see how they actually live and get to hear from them about the Amish culture.

      Hi Lynn,

      In the 2009 Wisconsin Amish directory* it lists Henry Yoder in Edgar Wisconsin as having a buggy shop. I believe that is about 18 miles from you. I also have Aaron T Swarey in Athens, Wi. (31-ish miles away) No phone numbers are listed in the directory but there are address’s that I could give you if you email me. If they don’t work on wheels I’m sure they could tell you where to check.

      Wisconsin Amish (May 22nd, 2014 at 22:34)

      Diane,
      Atlee Yoder’s store named Trails End, S302A Little Ridge Road, Ontario, WI 54651, has been called the “Amish Walmart.” Is it more of a man’s store? One person wrote about his visit at:

      http://www.brokenoakhill.com/LaFarge_Amish.html

      Trails End makes exit signs from old tools:
      https://www.farmshow.com/a_article.php?aid=26440

      It’s interesting that a few other stores have a similar nickname. Country Housewares in Leola, PA, has been called an “Amish Walmart.” Dutchman’s Store in Cantril, Iowa, is called the “Mennonite Walmart.” And a country store owned by Dan in Clare, MI, is nicknamed the “Dan-Mart.”

    Hi Diane,

    I hope you get a more precise response than what mine is going to be, but if not, maybe I can get you closer to what you are looking for.

    Two weeks ago I was in Wisconsin and got one of their old Amish directory’s for the state. In it most Amish folks listed if they were farmers or worked in a sawmill or whatever. Cashton, as you might know, has lots of Amish people. I saw that one had a “Coleman shop” while others had a shoe store, bakery, farm store and bent and dent. I would be happy to pass along the address for any of those if it sounds like what you might be looking for.
