Indiana Amish-built barns

A half-century ago, Amish were defined by their commitment to agriculture, with dairy and other varieties of farming a dominant occupation in many communities. Today, Amish have shifted into a diverse set of occupations, including manufacturing and run-from-home cottage industries.

Amish Barns Indiana
“Amish barns” in Indiana may refer to both traditional dairy barns or mini-barns, horse barns, and other consumer barns built by Amish manufacturers

Amish in Indiana have held to this pattern. While Amish dairies can still be found across Indiana, in many communities Amish have moved away from plows and pitchforks into craftsmanship and manufacturing. Notably, Amish in northern Indiana are heavily active in the RV manufacturing industry, while Amish in the southern community of Daviess County produce large amounts of furniture and cabinetry.

Making barns and storage buildings is an important part of the Amish occupational landscape, and you’ll find a number of Amish storage structure builders in the state. Barns may be constructed on-site at an Amish location, for delivery to a customer within the state or beyond. Amish companies may hire non-Amish employees who in addition to contributing labor, can provide services such as a delivery vehicle.

Purchasing an Amish barn in Indiana is relatively easy, either by visiting a dealer with numerous models to choose from, or who can provide custom ordering arranged through an Indiana Amish barn manufacturer. Given Indiana’s significant Amish presence, Hoosier state residents have a number of options for Amish-made structures, including buying direct from an Amish source.

Amish communities in the Hoosier State

With the nation’s 3rd-greatest Amish population, Indiana is home to Amish settlements from north to south and most points in between.  Nearly two dozen Amish communities are found within the state’s borders, including America’s 3rd-largest in Elkhart and Lagrange Counties, large communities lying both north and south of Fort Wayne, and a significant southern Indiana presence in Daviess County, home to thousands of Amish residents.

Besides finding an Amish-barn at the mostly non-Amish owned retailers listed above, some prefer to locate an Amish barn manufacturer and purchase their storage building straight from the source. While this route entails a little more footwork, it is a viable option, especially if you don’t mind a few trips to Amish Country.  Listed below are some details on some of the larger and more prominent Amish communities in the state.  For more information, check our main page on Amish settlements in Indiana.

Elkhart/Lagrange Counties:  Indiana’s most populous Amish location.  Over 20,000 Amish live in this settlement.  The Amish in this area are heavily involved in recreational manufacturing, employed by the many companies scattered through the region.  However a number of Amish are involved in construction and manufacturing.

Parke and Wayne Counties: These two communities, located on opposite ends of the state, are home to Lancaster County, PA transplants.  Founded 20 years ago, these growing communities have a number of manufacturing businesses as well as farm operations.

Daviess County:  A populous community in the hilly terrain of southern Indiana. Construction is a significant industry here, as is small-scale manufacturing.  Over 4,000 Amish make their homes in Daviess County.

      24x30 pre-fab horse barn with full loft

      Hello, I live in Baroda Michigan about 25 minutes north of South Bend and for the past few months have been researching and looking for a company to provide an Amish pre-fabricated horse barn. 2 stalls, 1 tack room, full loft with lean-to. I have found a couple companies but they are hundreds of miles away such as in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. I cannot seem to find anyone more local and I am insistent on the Amish built. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    5. John Hoskins

      I recently had a 24×32 pole barn garage built with one entry door and a 16×8 overhead door. Three Amish men built the garage in a total of 15 hours and it looks great. I would recommend Mr. Robert Graber of Salem, Indiana to anyone that needs a barn put up fast. It took a while to get to me for my garage because they were very busy, but he was there bright an early on the both days of the build.

    12. Donation Request - WNIN Spring Auction 2019

      Hello, my name is Scott Thomas Sieg and I am the Events & Theater Coordinator for WNIN. We are just weeks away from our 2019 Spring Auction which is being held on Monday, April 22nd to Sunday, April 28th from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

      In years past, we have received donations from local business and one in which is a yard barn. However, since last year, that business has closed their doors which puts us in search of additional items for this year’s Auction.

      We are hoping for donations from local businesses to donate patio furniture, yard barns, grills, lawn mowers, etc for this year. Your business would be plugged and reach the thousands of households in the Tri-State Area community.

      Your donation gives us the opportunity to continue both television and radio programming as we are a non-profit. Please feel free to reach out and respond. Thank you in advance!

      Sincerely,

      Scott Thomas Sieg
