Bed and Breakfast maintains Ohio Amish Business Directory

In an effort to assist their guests and others seeking Amish manufactured goods or services, the Millersburg, Ohio, Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast maintains an Ohio Amish Business Directory listing on their website.  The Amish are not permitted a website for their business; therefore, we have compiled a listing of some Amish businesses, realizing that there are many more that could be added.

The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast

The rural setting, with no zoning in Holmes County and rural areas of surrounding counties, provides a perfect setting for home industries, where children often are intricately involved in the family business.  The Amish community thrives, as members provide services needed by the community.  Trades vary, from food manufacturing, furniture making, home construction, metal fabrication, and retail sales of  goods and services too numerous to mention.

Yesterday one of our guests asked if there is an Amish person who makes full-size windmills.  Of course, our answer was "Yes," and we found the name and address on our website.  We continuing adding businesses as we discover them.  If you are searching for an Amish business, give us a call.  We will try to help you locate them.  If visiting Amish Country in Ohio, plan to stay the night.  Our accommodations and breakfasts we make your stay an exceptional one.
