Finding Amish stores and products
From modest roadside stand selling canned goods to vast retail showrooms harboring acres of Amish-made household furniture, Amish products can be found in a wide variety of venues. You may have encountered an Amish product while on vacation in an Amish community. You may have purchased furniture, quilts or other Amish-made goods online. You may be searching for businesses in a specific community, or the nearest provider of a certain good to your home.
As you travel in Amish communities, you’re sure to notice roadside signs pointing the way down long farm lanes to workshops, retail stores and bakeries often housed adjacent to the Amish home. Others will refrain from visiting Amish settlements, instead searching for Amish business signs pointing the way to venues selling Amish products online.
Geographically-ordered listings in the guides included here (organized by state) are meant to make locating a seller of Amish products fast and easy. The businesses listed here are both Amish-owned (noted when known) and non-Amish dealers of Amish products. Addresses, phone numbers, and websites, when relevant, are provided.
Some Amish companies may have a web presence thanks to cooperation with English partners, or may rely on an English-owned website to retail their goods. The non-Amish companies listed in these directories typically maintain close relationships with Amish manufacturers, allowing them to cooperate to produce goods in response to changing tastes.
Amish quiltmakers for example create quilts in both traditional styles, but also in more modern designs, as well as related products that have become popular among English customers, such as quillows or patchwork bags. An Amish furniture craftsman can design a new line of furniture in response to feedback given directly to him by customers, or if he is a wholesaler, channeled via a non-Amish retailer with whom he works.
In this manner Amish companies not only craft products aligned with Amish tradition, but also adapt to satisfy demands of their often highly non-Amish clientele. Interestingly, even those businesses which may seem to be strictly Amish-oriented in fact do a fair share of work for non-Amish. For example, an Amish buggy shop may also do some restoration of turn-of-the-century era cars (a time when the “horseless carriage” wasn’t so drastically different in design from today’s Amish buggy). Harness shops may do work for English horse owners, and horse-drawn equipment makers produce implements both for Plain farmers and English hobby farming enthusiasts.
Amish Businesses across America
The landscape of Amish occupations looks markedly different than it did for Amish forefathers of the 18th and 19th centuries. While agriculture remains a mainstay in many Amish communities, today thousands of Amish households provide a number of goods and services via home-based businesses. Amish business is a relatively recent phenomenon with roots in the mid-20th century, developing a full head of steam through the 1990s and into the 21st century.
Home enterprises have filled a gap which has arisen due to high land prices and large families pricing many Amish out of the market for traditional dairy farming. New generations of Amish business owners who, unlike their predecessors, never grew up on a farm, are founding businesses and taking over family firms in what is becoming for some a generational family tradition of entrepreneurship.
An Amish business may be as unassuming as an Amish housewife crafting candles in spare moments between taking care of household and children, to large Amish mini-factories employing dozens of workers and dedicated marketing and sales teams.
Most Amish businesses lie somewhere in the middle, existing as a small-scale means of providing a living for a single household. Amish businesses may be owned and operated by males, females, or both in husband-wife partnerships. Most commonly Amish men steer enterprises which employ family or neighbors in a locally-oriented environment.
Common among Amish companies are businesses in the woodworking, construction, and manufacturing sectors. Market stands thrive in the Mid-Atlantic region, typically operated by Pennsylvania Amish in and around large metropolitan areas of Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Jersey and beyond. Crafts remain a strong sector for Amish females, with Amish women doing skilled craft work such as clothes making or quilting in their spare time and in some cases operating full-fledged full-time companies.
Some Amish businesspeople operate in more obscure fields as well. Taxidermists, house movers, electricians (yes, electricians), accountants, health store owners, bookbinders, beekeepers and casket makers are all among the less-common enterprises occasionally seen on the Amish landscape. Though they restrict formal education, Amish have shown a knack for entrepreneurship often coming up with creative ideas for business ventures.
When you buy Amish-made products and services, you are helping to support Amish families who have adapted to a new entrepreneurial tradition likely to persist for generations to come. Likewise, many Amish-made products will last for generations themselves, offering value for decades to come.

Barn near East Lansing
I recommend that you contact BC Barns- Bontrager Construction. They are only about 20 miles away from you, near the village of Shepardsville. I used to be part of their church before I moved out of state, and I can highly recommend the quality of their construction. Their family was a wonderful blessing and help to me in many ways. If they are not able to help you, they will know who else in the community who refer you to. They were raised Amish, although the Ovid-Elsie Amish community dissolved close to 20 years ago now. I am not sure I have the most recent phone number, but you can get some information here:

Amish in Australia.

I want to buy more of their items but they have moved from Nabiac. Does anyone know their current Australian address, or have they returned to live in America, please? Does anyone know and can they (you) advise me here, please?

Advice for Jacob Cline re tents
If you really want to get a reply regarding your tents, I would recommend going in person to the Amish community you mention, stopping at any Amish business and speaking with them in person. They will be able to direct you much better to the people who can help you. Most Amish people do not use the internet, and especially most of them do not use this website. So I’m sad to say that your very specific notice here is just not that likely to be found by the people you’re searching for. It’s rather like the needle lost in a haystack. You’ll have much better success if you directly contact any Amish business in the same area or community where those folks live. This website does provide business listings for many Amish communities, and that could probably help you find some nearby addresses. But I have had success just driving to local Amish communities and looking for their business signs. They always put signs out front saying what they have for sale, or what they make.
Another option would be to put an ad in the national edition of The Budget newspaper, printed in Sugarcreek Ohio. That is a weekly newspaper read by almost every Amish household. If you choose this option, make sure you have some method of contacting you that is not email. Most Amish would prefer to contact you either by writing you a letter, or secondarily by making a phone call. Most Amish homes are still not allowed to have phones, but some Amish businesses are allowed. Every community is different in this, and things are slowly changing. I hope you have success in finding the help you need!
Your directory is excellent.
However, none of the categories tell me where I can buy Amish related books by and for the community.
You could also mention the Budget and similar things.
