Amish Country Road Trips
We drove over the back roads and across the rolling hills of Ohio’s Amish Country for our guide to five communities filled with farm-fresh foods, handcrafted furniture, great gifts and more.
Anyone who has spent an afternoon cruising the countryside through Ohio’s Amish communities already knows the allure: the rolling farm fields, the clip-clop cadence of the horse-drawn buggies and the many markets, shops and restaurants that allow us to sample a variety of Amish-made foods as well as those crafted from traditional recipes. It’s always a fulfilling and filling visit.
We’ve mapped out 45 stops centered around five communities, including short side trips you should take when visiting each. Those who’ve visited before know the area’s patchwork of farm fields isn’t always the easiest thing to figure out. We’re more than happy to show you around, whether you’re looking to browse sprawling antique malls, sit down to a hearty dinner, buy some award-wining cheeses or find a piece of handcrafted furniture that will bring a smile to your face for years to come.
