Amish Portable Building Sellers in Kentucky

Amish barns can be purchased in a number of ways in Kentucky.  The most convenient option for many buyers may be to visit a local business carrying a selection of Amish-built structures such as barns.  Some businesses offer online purchasing and delivery for those who have a good idea of what they need. Alternatively, some visit an Amish community to find and buy from an Amish manufacturer directly.

Plain Communities in the Bluegrass State

With around 10,000 Amish living within its borders, Kentucky ranks as America’s 8th most-Amish-populated state (see Amish Studies website).  Small Amish communities can be found scattered across the state in around 3 dozen locations. Amish have migrated to Kentucky in significant numbers, from more populous Amish states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania.  Natural growth among the Amish, with families averaging 6-8 children, is responsible for much of the increase in Amish numbers, as is the case elsewhere in North America.

Amish Made Barns KY
Amish made barns can be found in a number of KY Amish locations. Above: not all Amish use only buggies

Amish-run businesses are as much a feature of the landscape in many communities as are traditional dairy farms.  In fact, farming has declined in some areas to the point that it is a minority occupation.  On the other hand, some of the newer communities, particularly smaller and more remote settlements, may see a large percentage of Amish residents involved in agriculture.

Amish in Kentucky run a wide array of businesses including retail stores, construction crews, and manufacturing businesses. Furniture, cabinet-building and construction of outdoor structures and buildings are common business fields for Amish in KY and beyond.

When seeking an Amish-made barn, some buyers wish to visit an Amish community and attempt to find a barn from the source. While not all Amish communities in Kentucky will have a barn maker, and while not all sell on a retail basis, this may be an option in some cases.

Below are a few of the more populous Amish settlements in the state which may be home to an Amish-run business building barns and other structures such as sheds and garages.  Amish-operated businesses are typically marked by simple road signs, and are never open on Sundays.  Read more on the Amish in Kentucky

Munfordville/Horse Cave area (Hart & Grayson County)The state’s largest Amish settlement; lying an hour south of Louisville; around 2 hours southeast of Lexington.  Over 1500 Amish live in this central Kentucky community.  Small business is a significant part of the local Amish economy including a number of shops and retail stores run by local Amish.

Hopkinsville area:  Over a thousand Amish live in this community, which stretches across parts of three counties (Christian, Trigg, Logan).  The area of Christian and Todd County is also home to a significant horse-and-buggy Mennonite presence.

Guthrie (Todd County)The smallish community near Guthrie in Todd County near the Tennessee border is the state’s oldest Amish enclave. The Amish who live here are among the most progressive of all in Kentucky and North America; while maintaining signifiers of Amish identity such as buggies and plain clothing, Amish here permit both electricity in homes and the use of tractors for road travel.
