  • "Glad you’re writing on the Amish furniture industry, it’s actually quite larger than you’d think. I live in the heart of amish country. My grandpa was amish and actually one of the first woodworkers in the area(he started Schrocks of Walnutcreek if you’re interested). As I said, it’s larger than most people realize. As farming became less profitable for small farms(big farms become bigger and small farms close up) more amish farmers moved to woodworking to support their families.  Holmes county now has the largest concentration of hardwood furniture manufacturers in America. A few years ago the community formed a Furniture Guild(hardwoodfurnitureguild.com/about) to help market the area’s products. I’m familiar with Lehman’s stores, they have two locations in the area. But they’re not the biggest player in the local furniture industry. The biggest players would be Homestead Furniture(homesteadfurnitureonline.com), Abner Henry Fine Furniture(abnerhenry.com),which are both actually owned by the same amish business man, and Canal Dover Furniture(canaldover.com). There are many more smaller companies that are amish owned in the guild. I have a personal connection with the Amish furniture industry and would love to share more about it, so if you’re looking for a contributor or just a contact for future reference let me know ;). PS. I love the articles you creat Rain, a refreshing practical approach to the design industry, keep it up!"
