The Amish community at Clare is home to about 500 Amish individuals.  Despite its relatively small size, there are a number of attractions and businesses in the area, including a number of auctions occurring throughout the year.

Clare Amish attractions

Yoder’s Amish auction-each year auctions are held at a local Amish farm, with up to 500 vendors and thousands of attendees.  Yoder’s holds quilt auctions and craft shows on these dates, and furniture, tools and a variety of other items are for sale too.  And food of course.

Auctions are held in the spring (on the third Friday and Saturday in May) and late summer (on the Friday and Saturday of  Labor Day weekend).

Yoder’s also puts on a horse and equipment auction, which takes place 2 weeks before the quilt auction in the spring, and 2 weeks after in autumn.

    1. I would like to know where I can purchase smoked farmers sausage. I grew up in a Mennonite farming community in Saskatchewan and travel back there regularly and get farmers sausage from my cousin. However, I would to get some closer to home and I am wondering where I can get some here in Michigan. I would appreciate any help.

      Looking to hire

      Hello,

      My name is Michael Fillmore and I am looking to hire an Amish carpenter to help me with a cedar deck. My father lived in Gladwin, MI. and passed away suddenly this fall. He had orignally contracted with a local Amish caprenter to build his cedar deck and gazebo.

      I need some repairs done along with power-washing and staining of the said deck and would like to get it done prior to another winter on the deck and gazebo.

      Please feel free to contact me at (734) 260-9043 if you know of someone who is honest, hardworking and available to assist me.

      Kind regards,

      Michael Fillmore

      propane lights

      I would like to install indoor propane lights in my cabin in Cadillac and wondered if there’s a supply store anywhere near there or near US 131 from Grand Rapids to Cadillac.
      Thanks
      Jeff

      1. Linda

        Jeff,
        Natural Log Home Products,
        18814 Michigan 115, Marion, MI 49665
        phone (231) 743-6645
        is about 15 miles from Cadillac.
        This is one store that sells propane lights; there may also be others.

      Driving

      I own and operate a licensed for hire transportation service near
      Cadillac and Manton MI
      I would like to become involved with providing transportation services
      For the Amish community in my area. I have an 8 passenger van that is available
      and would serve well
      How can I make contact with the right people in the community
      and introduce my service?

      1. Driving for the Amish

        Jim I know a lot of folks who drive the Amish advertise their services via message boards in local stores patronized by Amish. Probably about the best way if you are just starting I would think: https://amishamerica.com/message-boards/

      2. Don Curtis

        van service

        I read your post to my son, Mark. He said that Alfred Gingerich is the bishop in the Manton, Michigan community. If you contacted him he could probably spread the word through his community.

        1. mary

          thank you so much for the assistance, how would I get in touch with him?

        2. jim

          van service

          Thanks. How would I make contact Mr. Gingerich?

          I also understand there may be a small community near Scottville, MI? (Mason Co)

          1. Jim and Mary, I don’t know if Don or Mark have the details, but since a lot of Amish operate business entities a Google search will probably find you some kind of contact address or number.

      metal roof installer

      I am looking for an Amish business that could install metal roofing on my home located in the Brighton, MI area, can you help?

      1. Linda

        Mary, perhaps you could inquire with the Amish at Charlotte, Michigan, or Quincy, Michigan, or Homer, Michigan.

    8. mary

      thanks Linda, Actually Charlotte is closest to me, but I have no idea how to contact anyone.

    9. Angela Bowman

      Looking to have a home built

      Hello. My name is Angela, and I would like to have a home built, here in Kingsley Michigan. I have seen the quality of work the Amish community does with woodworking, and was hoping to see if there was anyone locally that may be available to do this. I have never had a house built, so if anyone could do it, I would need price ranges too. The Manton community is the closest to me. If anyone has any info, please leave me a message. Thank you 🙂

    10. Lynn Dionne

      Amish food products

      Could someone please contact me as to where I might find some Amish butter, or home grown food products to the nearest location for me. I live in the U.P. of Michigan is there anywhere in my area? I saw something in Engidine but it didn’t say if they sold any of their goods or where I might find some.

      Thanks so much,
      Lynn Dionne

      Tour Guide

      Looking for Amish Families that host meals for tour groups. On September 1 our group will be in the Coldwater area and I would like am Amish meal served to 106 passengers.

      1. Al in Ky

        I have two suggestions:
        1) Call Chupp’s Herbs and Fabrics at 269-659-3950 and see if they know of any Amish families that serve group meals in their home. Chupps is at Burr Oak, Michigan, about 15 miles from Coldwater.

        2) The Shipshewana/Lagrange County Indiana Visitors Guide lists six Amish homes in that area who serve group meals in their homes. Call the Shipshewana/Lagrange County Visitor’s Center at 800-254-8090 if you would like further information. That area would be about 30 miles from Coldwater. I have been to two Amish homes for group meals, and each time it was a very enjoyable experience and the food was delicious!

    13. Jim

      Amish meals

      There is a gentleman that I know of who does host Amish thrasher dinners in Middlebury IN. It’s about an hour from where you’re requesting.

      Manual well pump

      I have an unused traditional electric pumped well on my property– last used in 2014– would like to convert it to a manually pumped water well.
      It is a deep well with static water level deeper than 25ft.
      I would like the type of hand pump typically used on Amish farms and cannot find an installer in the well drilling/pump repair industry who is interested in this “small job”.
      Property located in Gaylord MI area so freeze proof is also a requirement
      Thank you

    15. Kim Major

      home addition

      Hello,
      We have had an amish man and his sons add an addition to our home in Ohio. We were very impressed with the craftsmanship and would like to see if there is any amish builders that could add an addition on to our lake home in Jerome, Michigan in Hillsdale county. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      Barry county Michigan Amish

      I am putting together a book about Barry county Michigan and would like to include the Amish that reside in Barry county in that book. I don’t have a clue who to contact, how to contact and where to contact them. I basically would like to interview someone from their community, take photo’s of their farming equipment, buggies, workshops, baked goods, quilts, etc. I have driven through the area where they live, but have never approached anyone about this. I just don’t know what their “feelings” are toward “outsiders”. I don’t know if they still do not allow photo’s of people. Could someone please contact me on how to go about this? It is very important to me.
      Thank you so much,
      Daneise

      There is an Amish pallet mill around the McBain Michigan area. I was wondering if there is a place like that near Detroit.
      We are looking to get a couple bundles to do home improvement with the boards.

      Amish honey farms

      Hello, I’m writing to inquire about how to get in touch with any Amish farms for honey, honeycombs and perhaps other products. Thank you, Lisa

      1. jim

        Amish farms for honey etc

        Lisa,
        Where in Michigan do you live? There are several Amish communities throughout the state. I am in NW Lower Michigan and there is a community near Kaleva & Bear Lake, MI. They sell their own products in a retail sore setting. There is also a community near Manton/Mesick Michigan north of Cadillac. As long as you are respectful, I have found many members of the communities are welcoming and approachable.

    25. John Kail

      Non GMO Feed

      Hi!
      Looking to purchase non GMO chicken and pig feed near Lowell MI – also have heard that you can buy pine shavings in bulk for bedding from the Amish Community – any info on this would be great too!
      Thank you!

    29. It was so pity. Today, there are not many Amish people left. They show a part of human history. However, they are really out-of-date.
