Minnesota’s Amish population has grown steadily over the past four decades
Minnesota’s 14 Amish settlements are clustered in two regions: the extreme southeast near the Iowa border, and the central-northwest. Amish first settled in Minnesota in the late 1800s, forming two short-lived communities. Today, Minnesota’s Amish population numbers more than 3,000 (see Young Center 2010).
Minnesota Amish communities:
- Harmony-The Harmony/Canton area of Fillmore County is home to Minnesota’s largest Amish settlement, with 7 church districts and approximately 1,000 people. A second Fillmore County settlement is found at Granger
- Todd County-5 separate Amish settlements are found in Todd County in central Minnesota
- Other MN Amish communities-Wadena, the oldest Minnesota Amish community, was founded in 1972. Other settlements can be found in Clearwater County, Becker County, and Polk County.
Harmony, MN Amish
The Harmony Amish community was founded by Swartzentruber Amish from Wayne County, Ohio, who began settling in this corner of Fillmore County in 1974. Like other Swartzentruber Amish, this conservative group uses only limited technology in their homes, businesses, and buggies.
The Amish of Harmony make a living by farming, working construction jobs, and like Swartzentruber counterparts in the Ethridge, Tennessee Amish settlement, various communities Ohio, and numerous other states, by operating low-tech businesses. Basket, furniture, and quilt-making are popular here (read more here on Amish furniture in Minnesota). Jams, rugs, quilts, baked goods, and cashew crunch are among the items available for sale at local Amish homes.
The Harmony Amish community is by far the largest in Minnesota, at 7 church districts, and currently the third-oldest settlement in the state.
As in other sizeable settlements, a small tourism industry has developed here. In addition to the businesses the Amish themselves run, visitors to the area are catered to by tour companies which visit Amish farms and merchants and provide information on the community and Amish way of life.
Another Fillmore County settlement is found not far from Harmony, at Granger in the southern end of the county. Granger’s southern border is formed by the Minnesota-Iowa state line; its “twin village” of Florenceville, Iowa lying just across the line.
The Amish settlement here actually spills over the state line, with families living on the Iowa side of the border. At 3 church districts, the Granger settlement is the 2nd-largest in the state.
It’s not unusual to find one area being home to a large number of separate Amish groups. Amish belonging to different affiliations–either more conservative or more liberal–are nonetheless attracted to settle in areas where other Amish already live.
They may be attracted to a given locale for similar reasons–low land prices, or absence of tourism, for instance. Amish moving to an area where Amish already live know that locals are likely to be used to the presence of Amish. Close contact with other Amish groups, even those more progressive or conservative, can help ease the move to a new area, with new arrivals benefiting from advice or by patronizing established businesses, such as buggy makers or plain clothing retailers.
Examples of areas where multiple groups have settled include the Amish communities of Clark County, Wisconsin, and the heavily-Amish Mohawk Valley in New York. Todd County in central Minnesota is another such place, today home to five separate settlements.
The first Amish arrived in Todd County in 1973, settling near the village of Bertha. In 1995, another settlement was established at Long Prairie, with a further two communities arising in the early 2000s, at Clarissa/ Browerville, and another near Bertha. Amish have continued to arrive in Todd County, with a settlement recently established at Eagle Bend (see Amish Settlements Across America: 2008, David Luthy).
In 2005, a rare polio outbreak occurred among Amish at the Long Prarie settlement, bringing attention to the reluctance of some Amish to undergo vaccination.
Other MN Amish communities
In addition to the above, a number of other settlements exist in the North Star State. The oldest Minnesota Amish community, near Wadena in Wadena County, was founded in 1972, and numbers 2 church districts today.
Polk County is home to a pair of settlements, at Fosston and Fertile, both established in 2007. Other Amish communities can be found in Becker, Clearwater, and Winona Counties.
Historical Minnesota settlements
A pair of Amish settlements existed in Minnesota around the turn of the century. These two communities were both located in the southwestern corner of the state, in Nobles and Jackson Counties. The first settlement was established near Wilmont in Nobles County, by settlers from Waterloo County in Ontario. Settlers bore surnames less-common in Amish society today, including Jantzi, Gascho, Kennel, Kropf, Iutzi, and Gerber. Some of these names are still seen in Canadian Amish communities, however.
Amish settlers did carpentry work and raised crops including corn, wheat, oats, barley, hay, and potatoes. Eventually, this settlement failed, as Amish historian David Luthy explains, due to a mixture of affiliations within the group. The Wilmont community, according to Luthy, “was traditional enough to fellowship with some Old Order Amish but had historic and family connections with the meetinghouse groups in Ontario and received an occasional visiting minister from there.” (Settlements that Failed, Luthy p. 213). The “dual nature” of this community–Old Order Amish, and Amish-Mennonite–led to its eventual total disbandment in 1910.
A second Amish community followed shortly after the Wilmont community was founded. A land agent succeeded in attracting Amish settlers, mainly from the Arthur, Illinois Amish settlement, to Jackson County in 1894. Amish in this area primarily farmed wheat, which they were able to transport to market thanks to Jackson County’s good train connections. Fishing in the county’s lakes, sometimes with pitchforks, and sometimes by simply cutting out fish caught in the thick winter ice, was a popular way of supplementing food.
Another popular pastime, Luthy notes, was exagerrating the severity of the Minnesota winters in the Sugarcreek Budget. As one writer put it: “I can’t give a record as to how cold it is outdoors, as it was so cold that the thermometers flew all to pieces, except one man was lucky enough to have his thermometer in the house hanging behind the stove in the sitting room, and he said it was 48 below zero.” This community eventually went extinct for unknown reasons, with the last family moving away seven years after it was founded, in 1901 (see The Amish in America: Settlements that Failed 1840-1960, David Luthy, pp.210-218)
Minnesota Amish continue robust growth
Like most other Amish settlements in the upper Midwest, the Minnesota Amish communities are remote from large population centers. This distance, and the correspondingly cheaper farmland, has continued to steadily attract Amish settlers over the past few decades.
The Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies reports that Minnesota Amish population growth has been robust, with an increase of 178% over the past 20 years. With the large amount of sparsely-populated land available, Amish growth in the state is likely to continue at an above-average pace.

Why no Amish in ND?
With many Amish living in MN and some close to the ND border, it is interesting that we do not have any Amish in our state. There are many farms and pasture land for sale in the eastern part of the state. There is one county close to the MN border that has a lot of pasture land and land that is coming out of CRP in the near future. This land typically sells for much less than land that has been farmed. I think the land prices overall are very reasonable compared to other parts of the country. Maybe one day the Amish will take a good look at ND.
I should note that we did have Amish in ND from 1894 until 1956 when only 3 members remained according to GAMEO.
Will Amish settle in North Dakota?
It will probably happen again someday; I’ll make a “bold” prediction and say that within the next 5 years there will be a North Dakota Old Order Amish community (an arbitrary guess based on general Amish westward migration).
As you say the state has had an Amish presence before (at least 4 different communities) and Amish currently live and survive in similar latitudes. You’ve also got Amish in three neighboring states (Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana), so I’d bet some adventurous soul(s) will take a look at some point fairly soon and take a crack at North Dakota, assuming there’s not some factor I’m unaware of which would make ND unattractive.
amish clothing stores in MN?
Eric do you know of any Amish that would be willing to make me a few dresses? i am going bonkers here trying to find some normal dresses that doesn’t show everything God gave me! oh i did speak to Mrs Hershburger but i guess she was really busy and couldnt help me with canning, and i was extremely busy this summer so wasn’t able to go to harmony and meet with her either, do you know of any Amish around the stewartville/rochester area and what sect they are from?
I have always assumed that ND is unfavorable due to the lack of natural water. We have several “man made” lakes but that’s about it. Much of the land that is in CRP in eastern ND doesn’t have natural water sources on or near it. We have a high water table but drinkable water is much deeper. My husbands 5 generation farmstead had many wells but none that were fit for human consumption. Also land in eastern ND is higher price as much of the land is used for beet or potatoes.
Spring Amish consignment auction in St. Charles MN
Is the next spring consignment amish auction in St. Charles MN on May 23rd 2015?
Hilarian — A few days ago I received my annual brochure from the Country Fresh Produce Auction (Amish) at St. Charles and it has listed May 23 as the date of the furniture, flowers and quilt consignment auction you asked about.
Annual and Perennial Plants near Clarissa MN
I have heard great information about annual and perennial plants available for purchase from Amish near Clarissa MN. Can anyone tell me where the place is located and when the plant sales will begin for Spring 2015? Thank you…
I believe it is located just south of Clarissa on county road 11 on the west side of the road their should be some signs posted there, as far as hours they are open everyday but Sunday and I would think the plants would be ready any time you would want to stop.
Becker County Amish
I am so thrilled to have Amish neighbors and slowly building up some kind of a relationship with them. I was speaking with one of the oldest sons today next door and it occurred to me to ask him what kind of Amish he was, but that seemed like it might be rude….? Does anyone know what kind of settlement is in Becker county? Or how I could find out? We have recently been house hunting for my brother in the area and discovered many Amish in our area. My neighbor said they have now about 30 families in our 15 mile radius alone.
I don’t know this community, but you might ask which other communities they are back and forth with, or where they originally came from, or where else they have family.
From that you might be able to get a sense of which affiliation they are, combined with any observations on their material level – do they use the SMV triangle? Outhouses? Phone shanty? What do the business signs look like–are they professionally made or mostly hand-written signs? There is a list of 40+ Amish affiliations included in the book The Amish which also might be helpful: https://amishamerica.com/amish-affiliations/
They do use a SMV triangle and the signs I’ve seen for their businesses, are homemade. I believe they moved here from southern Iowa, though I’d have to confirm that with my husband who has spoken to them more about that. I will definitely check out that book, thanks Erik 🙂
There are two “Hillsboro (WI)”-style districts in northwest Minnesota (one actually has a Swartzentruber background but has adjusted to the Hillsboro Ordnung) but I think they are north of Becker County. The only settlement I recognize is Frazee. They are fairly traditional Andy Weavers. They fall somewhere between the Fredericktown (OH) [Andy Weaver/Dan] and Kenton flavors. Oh, and the Hillsboro people pulled out of northern Indiana back in the 1970s and 1980s, so they allow more material things than most Andy Weavers (who pulled away from the largest Amish groups in the 1950s), but are still much plainer than the mainstream Amish. With all of this said, the Becker County folks — like most Amish people — probably know where they fit without understanding the nuances of their religious identity or the history that led to development of these varying practices and identities.
In need of help!
I’m writing to you out of sheer desperation. I was wondering if you had ever heard of any of the Amish people taking in a troubled & challenging young adult, to help give her some core values and ethics, but not necessarily to join the Amish?
Here’s my dilemma:
My daughter who will be 18 In Aug. and has had emotional/behavioral issues her whole life. I’ve taken her to numerous specialists, treatment centers, therapists and nothing changes. She has been in the counties care for the last 2 years and they have had worse outcomes than I did. She is currently in Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Lino Lakes, MN for the simple reason that she would not follow the counties rules and had an open criminal case, so they used that to “contain” her till she’s 18 and they don’t have to deal with her any longer. Her doctors have suggested she have a guardian, but the county wants no part of it.
I guess I just wondered if you think there might be a family that would be willing to help us??
Hi Kirsten, I know you sent a similar message to me over email, just letting you know I just replied. Although as I said in that email I don’t have anything concrete on this, maybe someone else here could advise. I’m sorry to hear about this struggle.
taking in kids
Each Amish community establishes their own rules – some are more strict than others. Here in Missouri a non-Amish “English” as we are called, can send their children to an Amish school – the children must abide by all the rules. This is with special permission.
To take a person into their home to live with them – would require following all their rules as well….that would be rules of dress, speech, work, prayer, church, — everything!
I’ve never heard of this being done.
An 18 year old with emotional problems would, in my opinion, not be able to make such a drastic change! I’ve interacted with the Amish closely and have eaten in their homes and spent the night as a guest as well. It would be difficult for me to live totally as an Amish person with all the rules and dress etc for a week.
I have, however heard of Mennonite families taking children into their homes like this – but once again, the children must follow all the rules of dress etc.

Hello Cheryl, So where are you located? What are you looking to have done?
If you would like you can call me to at 320-468-6474.
I’m wondering if you could help me find some areas of Amish that sell at their farmsteads goods they make. We have toured places with our tour bus company at Long Prairie, MN. We want to tour more as it is interesting to learn about their lifestyle and the ladies on our tours but a lot of their goods. We are not interested in visiting an Amish store-only individual farmsteads. We are looking in the Parkers Prairie, Wadena etc. area. Thanks for your help.
amish in Wadena
Hello, Give me a call at 320-468-6474 and I will tell you where you can find some Amish that sell goods.
Thank you, I will call. Wendy
Hello! We are in the Long Prairie, Eagle Bend , MN area and want to buy some Amish crafts. Any suggestions? Could go as far as Wadena.
Hopefully, Kevin can help you with specific Amish farms where different items are sold, but if not, I have a suggestion.
The New American Almanac (also known as “Raber’s Almanac”) lists most Amish communities in the U.S. I looked in my copy and found the following areas in northern Minn. where there are Amish communities: Mill Lacs/Milaca, Mora, Pierz, Frazee, New York Mills, Long Prairie, Wadena and Clarissa. Further north in Minn. are Fosston, Fertile, and Clearbrook. You may want to get a copy of this almanac to find some more specific addresses in these communities, although the almanac does not list specific farms where products are sold. Also, it’s quite far from where you are, but in southeastern Minn. are the Harmony/Canton, St. Charles, and Granger settlements. I have been to these settlements many times and there are many Amish farms (especially in Harmony/Canton area) where products are sold. The Visitor’s Center in Harmony likely could be helpful with names of specific Amish farms. I haven’t been to any of the communities in northern Minn., but wish I could help you more with specifics. The number of Amish settlements in Minn. is slowly, but surely growing.

Near Chisago County?
What’s the nearest Amish community near Chisago County, MN (and into western WI)?
My friend is moving from Wisconsin to Lengby, Minnesota. I’m not sure whether they’re founding an entirely new settlement or district, or moving to a pre-existing one. I think her husband has family there, so there’s already SOMETHING there… It seems to be a very harsh climate.
I read in last week’s issue of The Budget (Amish/Mennonite weekly newspaper) that there is a new Amish community at Hinckley, Minnesota.
China or Curio Cabinet
I have purchased an older piece of furniture, and from research I feel that it may be from an Amish furniture maker in Minnesota. It may date to mid century 1900’s as a guess. Under the bottom it has a roughly carved backward letter h in small case, and I’m wondering if that may be a maker’s marking.
Would you have any information to assist me in my research? I could send a photo.
It is a china cabinet, three sides of glass, with soldered glass at the top, 2 front paw/claw feet, and an interior light under the top with an elongated bulb, under a metal cover. The back has tiny staples, rather than nails.
It is 60″H, 31″W, and about 16″ depth.

What activities if any between 7/3/2019-7/8/2019
We are visiting in Minnetrista Mn during July 3- July 8/2019 and would like to visit the Amish community. Was wondering if they would have any special events of any kind during that time period. Which Amish community is near Minnetrista?
The Amish population in Minnesota is growing and the latest statistics I read stated there were 22 Amish settlements in Minn., especially in north central and southeastern Minn. The closest one to Minnetrista that I know of is the Milaca Amish settlement which is a few miles southeast of Milaca, about 70 miles north of Minnetrista. I do not know of any special activities there. I would suggest stopping at a convenient store or gas station in Milaca and ask for directions to the Amish settlement.
I read in a recent issue of The Budget newspaper that there is a new Amish settlement at Spring Valley, Minn., which has five families. Spring Valley is in southeastern Minn., and I think at least some of the families have moved there from the Utica/St. Charles, Minn. settlement.

Looking for Amish made cook stoves
Hello, I am wondering if you have any information on any Amish that build metal cook stoves.
Combo wood stove and oven.
Thanks in advance!
Hello, Did you ever find a cook stove? If you are still looking please contact me at email@example.com…..Kevin
In visiting with the Amish from NW MN, they have all ordered their cookstoves from Lehmans. The one family I visited with on Wednesday got their cook stove and water heater/canner (wood fired) from Lehmans. Hope this helps. I believe more of the metal workers with Amish are located in Indiana/Ohio/PA.
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) penetrating drugs market
Advances in biotechnology have enabled the development of versatile in vitro (static and dynamic), in vivo (micro-dialysis), and in situ (brain perfusion) blood–brain barrier models, allowing more effective and safe delivery of drugs across brain capillaries
Over time, extensive R&D efforts have resulted in the development of a number of versatile BBB penetration technologies. These technologies have been designed either to externally alter the permeability of the blood csf barrier or augment the BBB penetrating capabilities of compatible pharmacological interventions.
Roots Analysis is pleased to announce the publication of its recent study, titled, “Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB) Market (2nd Edition), 2020-2030: Focus on Non-Invasive Drug Delivery Technology Platforms and Therapeutics.”
