      Looking to interview (March 1st, 2012 at 12:05)

      Looking to interview

      Hello,
      I am taking an Ethics class and I need to interview someone of a different religion than mine. I was hoping to interview someone who is Amish. If you or anyone has any information on how I would find someone in my area (Beaver Dam, Dodge Co. WI.) that would be very helpful.
      Thank you,

        Interviewing an Amish person for your class

        I’m wondering what religion is yours to make the Amish religion “differnet.” They are Christian believers. I know several Amish folks in the Kingston, WI area.

          They are not a different religion than mine however the lifestyle is. I have always wanted to learn more about how to live a more simple life.

    Hi Erik. What a great series. I really enjoy the travelogues as they will surely help in my travels to these places. I am from Wisconsin and one community that is now gone/failed is the settlement near Amherst which was the second oldest in the state behind only Medford. It had just reached 4 districts but soon after started to see families leave for various reasons. Around 2000 is when the last family moved out to Marion, Wi. What a sad day as I had just started to know quite a few families there. I never thought I would see such a thing happen before my eyes.
    Thanks again for all your posts and your book was excellent as well.

  • Amherst, Wisconsin Amish settlement

    Hi John many thanks and great to hear from Wisconsin readers here. I had been aware of the Amherst settlement and it seems that is just the way things go with some of these communities. For instance in Ohio there are a couple of settlements that are both around 100 years old and just holding on at barely a church district. Meanwhile other communities take off and grow like wildfire.

    It was really nice to hear the kind words on my book-thank you!

    There’s also a settlement north of Portage, WI in Columbia County (or just over the border into the next county–not sure). Anywho, there’s a little Amish-run country store that sells bulk foods and canned goods and sometimes produce. I think the actual name is Missler’s Country Store or something like that. We just always called it the Amish store and I always liked the candy section because they had all types of candy in bulk;-) There’s supposed to be a bakery somewhere in the area as well, but we’ve never found it. And, there’s a nice furniture shop across the road from the store–possibly run by the same family. In any case, it’s always a treat to go to the “Amish store” with my aunt every time I visit!

    Christina nice to hear about another Wisconsin Amish community. It’s funny this is the 2nd time this week I’ve heard about the Columbia County community but I don’t have a listing for it. I wonder if it is relatively new or if I just have it under a different name/county. Need to check the map!

    Not sure what Mr. Luthy means concerning the community in Viroqua being non-existent. There’s a small Swartzentruber community there.

    Wisconsin Amish (November 4th, 2010 at 04:11)

    Hi Thomas, you are correct concerning Viroqua; in fact as of ’08 there are 2 separate communities under the Viroqua tag according to the listing.

    The Viroqua community referenced here was one located nearer Rising Sun, and which ceased to exist in the early 2000s. I’ve tweaked the entry to clarify and prevent confusion. Thanks for bringing this up.

    Erik, do you or anyone know who would be constructing portable wood garages. The Amish in PA, Kentucky and other places in the East make them and ship them on flatbed trailers. We are interested in pricing one locally. Size is 10 by 20/24. I thought someone might know of local Amish who are doing this type of wood work.
    Thank you

    Erik,

    I want to find out if there are any Amish who might be willing to help/teach a group of people to do a barn raising.

    I am founding a therapeutic farm (Leap of Faith Farm) for individuals and families impacted by trauma. Our philosophy is healing through meaningful work with animals, the environment, and the community.

    We will need to build a barn/arena.

    Sincerely,

    Kristen

    Furniture makers

    One of the best places to find wood artisans is at their Quilt and Furniture auctions in Wisconsin. There are about 13 of them from April to October. They have their business cards on their furniture in the “holding tent” that you can see the furniture, pick up their business cards, and even talk with them.

    I just bought an enclosed 2 seat buggy that has steel wheel rims. I am wanting to restore parts of it but do not want to mess up the history of it. Is there any place on the buggy that would give me an idea of where it was made and possible how old it is. It has roll up side doors with windows and a back roll up door with a window. The front window is clear plastic which is detachable and it has not wipers. It does have electice lights from a battery and no brakes of any sort. Can you give me any information that can help me?

      Lunch at an Amish "restaurant" (June 12th, 2012 at 07:22)

      Lunch at an Amish "restaurant"

      There are no “Amish restaurants”. In many states the Amish serve a meal in their home or in another building on their farms, but not a walk in any time restaurant. Tours are usually arranged to settlements and include a meal in a home. Some communities, however, frown on such “commercialization.” And local health departments are sometime overjealous and shut them down, in one case I know with a $500 fine for not having “ice cubes cold enough.” I lead tours to five communities in Wisconsin and know the treatment some Amish suffer.

      Hello Jen,
      I’m curious of your interest in the Fond du Lac county area. Do you live nearby? I’m making two slide talks on the Amish In Wisconsin in Columbus, WI and Cambria, WI this month if you are interested. They are in public Libraries in each town and free.
      There is a small settlement in St. Anna in Calumet County. I lead tours there and have an Amish meal.
      Check out my web site richarddawley.com rld7971858@att.net

      I’d like to network if you have a serious interest in the Amish and/or Mennonites or Hutterites as I write non-fiction books about my experiences with them over the past two decades.

          Jen,
          Yes there is one near that area. I work for American Red Cross and did a blood drive in that area. Unless they are Mennonite? They had the traditional clothes and such, but were willing to answer our questions on the computer (which those in Loyal will not do) and one had a cell phone. But either way, they were still there :) This was this Spring (2012).

            Campbellsport

            Like many of the readers here, I have always been fascinated with the Amish. So I love it when there are some that come to the blood drives. In the Campbellsport area (somewhere between there and Plymouth – they are all little country towns close together) were the ones I mentioned. I talked to one of the girls, and I know she had made her own dress and they didn’t drive cars themselves. She had recently married, and was quite happy about it. Her husband was from PA. So I asked her “how do you meet someone from so far away when you don’t drive [cars] or use the computer?” She said it was a friend’s wedding…at weddings, they seat unmarried youth with a member of the opposite sex. So she hit it off with the guy she was placed next to…they had the same last name, so she didn’t even have to change her name :)

    Wisconsin Amish (November 2nd, 2011 at 20:39)

    I don’t know about Campbellsport, but I always go to the store in Dalton – Mishler’s Country Store on Barry road- just east of route 22 and west of 44. It is right near the point where Green Lake co.,Columbia co. and Marquette co. come together.

    It’s a pretty large store with no electricity. They just expanded in the last year and when I was up there 3 weeks ago they had 2 or 3 checkout lanes(all push button adding machines).

    I live in the Chicago area, so I do not get to that area more than 2 or 3 times a year. Normally I go to Kauffman’s in Beloit(just west on highway 81. They are a Mennonite store I believe(they have electricity and cars). Kauffmans is only a quarter of the size of Mishler’s, but they seem to have as much variety. They just have more in back in storage and bulk.

    Auction in Dalton? (November 28th, 2011 at 11:41)

    Auction in Dalton?

    I understand that there is an animal auction in Dalton on the first Sat. of the month. Do they ever sell overstock furniture? I would be interested in attending on Dec. 3rd. I am looking for several items, ex: rocking chair, dining buffet, bedroom set.
    And if you do purchase something, is there a place to hold items until trucking can be organized?

      Check at your local Piggly Wiggly. Our deli sells broasted chicken made from Amish grown, steriod/hormone free chicken that is shipped in from Indiana. They might be able to ship in orders for you, as well! Hope this helps!

      In response to Daniel Halvorsen, the above mentioned Brubaker’s Country Store has a featured kitchen cabinet maker at their store, maybe call them and see where he is located? Just a suggestion!

      MN Amish cabinet maker

      Thanks for the question Daniel, here’s a listing of Minnesota Amish furniture retailers, the first business listed works with a half-dozen Amish cabinet makers. The business is in central MN (Isanti), not sure where the Amish cabinet makers are located: http://amishamerica.com/amish-furniture-minnesota/

      Also there is a Minnesota Amish thread for any other Minnesota Amish questions you might have:

      I write non-fiction books (8 so far and a 9th in process) about the Amish, Mennonites, and Hutterites. Can you tell me more about the AMish in Sauk County? I’d like to visit some in summer or fall.

    Mishler’s Country Store
    W 5115 Barry Rd.
    Dalton, WI
    608-429-3392

    This is about 25-30 miles east of Wis. Dells. Take 33 east to 22 or 44 and go north. You will have to use a detailed map or possibly google it. I just do it from memory when I reach Portage, so I do not remember the exact roads that I take. Barry road is also called HH which is the northern part of Columbia County. Look for where Columbia county intersects with Marquette and Green Lake County and you will be very close to it.
    I believe it is between 22 and 44.

    The vegetable farm is just west of them 1 or 2 farms down.

    Remember -Amish and Mennonite store are closed on Sunday’s.

      if you take 33 east out of portage until you come to hiway22 (should be the first stop sign) turn left (north). aprox. 6 miles north you’ll come to barry road. turn right, down about 2 miles, michlers is on the right.
