Amish Mud Sales 2022 – Lancaster County

I’m a little late posting this mud sale schedule this year, but better late than never. Truth be told there have only been a handful of sales so far, and around 18 more to go (mostly happening in March through June, though there are a few in late summer and autumn). In fact, there are three events happening just this Saturday, March 19th.

The good news is that after disruptions with many sales being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 it looks like there is a more-or-less full slate of sales this year. One sale has been canceled (Airville in York County) and it looks like the Intercourse Fire Company has discontinued its sale in favor of other fundraisers.

If you’re not familiar with mud sales, they are auctions held by local volunteer fire companies in the Lancaster County area. They’re traditionally held in spring, and get their name from the condition of the fields in this period of thaw. The fire companies, which often have a significant Amish membership, get a large part of their funding from the proceeds of these sales. Here’s a look at one from 2013 in Gordonville:

Here is the mud sale schedule (I compiled this using several sources online including Individual fire company websites included here should have more detailed information on each sale.

      Lancaster County Mud Sales.

      Greetings, I live in nearby Cumberland County. Over the years I have attended 100’s of mud sales. I usually avoid Lancaster County because they are swarmed with Eastern Pa tourist buyers and I never find the bargins I seek. This year I will attend about 20 sales mostly all on the western side of the Susquehanna river. All my traditional sales are alive and well this year as they were in 2021. Thanks for posting the schedule. It’s always good to know what’s happening in the #1 Amish county in PA.

      1. Great to hear Jerry, hope you’ll let us know how your visits to sales are going at some point. Just curious how do you usually find the sales you go to? Amish publications, auction sites, etc?

      Other Amish sales

      Are there any mud sales, etc. in western NY State? We live in nearby a large Amish, and also a Mennonite community, and more are in the south western part of our state, also.
