Amish communities near Asheville
While the growing Amish population has expanded to found new communities in neighboring states such as Virginia and Tennessee, North Carolina has not seen the same amount of settlement. North Carolina’s sole Amish community is a single congregation in size, comprising perhaps 2-3 dozen households. A measure of business activity occurs at the Union Grove community, including woodworking.
Some Amish furniture buyers opt to visit an Amish community in search of a builder. While there is some limited business activity at Union Grove, those serious about finding an Amish woodworker to do custom work would likely be better served by visiting a larger Amish community in another state, such as that of Holmes County, Ohio.
Union Grove (Iredell/Yadkin County): NC’s only Amish presence is about a 2-hour drive from Asheville. In addition to manufacturing businesses, Union Grove has 2 stores selling variety items and food products.
Virginia Communities: A number of small Amish communities can be found in Western Virginia, 2-3 hours from Asheville, including in the Pearisburg area.
