Amish have settled relatively little in the Great Plains, with settlements in Kansas, Nebraska, and historically, North Dakota. A group of Amish arrived in southeastern South Dakota in 2010, migrating from a Wisconsin Amish community to the area near Tripp in Hutchinson County.
Amish settlers to South Dakota are a conservative group. Early reports showed good prospects for the growth of this solitary South Dakota Amish community, with positive relations established with non-Amish locals. With the arrival of the Amish newcomers, South Dakota became the 28th state with an Amish presence. Read more on South Dakota Amish.
Amish migrants to new regions may set up new farms, or in many cases, small businesses such as dry good shops, buggy outfits, or tack and harness shops. Woodworking is another highly popular occupation for Amish. Manual trades such as furniture making and construction are popular among Amish, who typically learn a craft in an apprentice-style fashion (Amish finish school around age 14 or 15, and typically begin their working lives officially after graduation from 8th grade).
Amish furniture makers are typically small-size operations, established on a farm or in close range of the home. Amish wood entrepreneurs may work on a solo, part-time basis, employ family members, or even Amish and non-Amish from the surrounding community. Amish furniture shops rarely exceed 30 employees. Owners are typically hands-on and directly involved in the construction of furniture pieces in many cases, adding to the appeal of Amish woodcraft.
Another attractive element of Amish furniture is its reputation for high quality. This is based on a couple of factors–the skill and level of craftsmanship common among Amish, as well as the types of materials used in its construction. Since Amish craftsmen typically learn their trades from an early age, many have extensive experience by the time the open their own shops.
Amish commonly use high quality woods as well as solid methods of construction. Hardwoods such as maple, walnut, hickory, oak, cherry, and others are common. Amish construct furniture from pine and cedar as well. They are also adept at creating furniture in a range of styles, including Shaker, Queen Anne, Arts and Crafts, Contemporary, Mission, and many more.
