NOTE: Without exception Amish and Mennonite businesses are not open on Sundays.
- Liz’s Bake Shop, 7960 Overman Rd., Hillsboro, OH. Amish owned bakery where you’ll find some excellent fried pastries, pies, cakes, sticky buns, fudge, brownies, breads, pretzels and more. The yeast doughnuts are excellent quality and made fresh daily. Hours are 7 am – 6 pm every day except Thursday and Sunday.
- Dent and Bent Store. This Amish owned business specializes in salvaged and dated foods. The selection is constantly changing you’ll find bargains galore. It’s great fun getting a banana box filled with perfectly good goodies for a $10 bill. Just bring a flashlight if you’re wanting to read the small print, bright electric lights just aren’t part of the experience. Opened everyday except for Thursday and Sunday.
- Yoder’s Lawn Furniture. Just down the road from Dent & Bent, Yoder’s is a small Amish business specializing in lawn furniture. Offering standard designs they will gladly build to your specifications. Closed on Sunday.
- Paint Creek Orchard Shoes & Variety. A large selection of fabrics, sewing supplies, notions, kitchen utensils and appliances, shoes & boots for all the family, hats, gloves, tools, etc. All new inventory. Closed on Thursday & Sunday. This Amish family also operates an organic dairy farm, bee hives, and is cultivating a large orchard of peach trees.
- Sawmills. Check the AMET map and you’ll find several sawmills listed. They all offer contract and custom work. They are also a fine source of slab firewood at reasonable prices. Rocky Fork Sawmill is especially good for slab wood since they sell theirs already cut to length for stoves and fireplaces.
- Farriers. Given their reliance on horses and mules both the Mennonites and Amish in our area require the services of farriers. There are several good farriers in the area including, Enos Harshbarger, SR 138 Farrier Services and Rocky Fork Farrier Services on Overman Rd. Both serve the public with all their equine needs.
- Produce Farmers. There are any number of small producers of fresh produce and fruit along the AME Trail. Most will have a homemade sign near the road advertising what they have for sale at the moment. You will also find suppliers of free range brown country eggs, homemade baked goods, and local honey.
