Now don't be fooled into thinking Amish Country is only for the ladies! There is LOTS to do in our area that is of great interest for men. Local business owner, John Kirkbride, compiled this list of some of his favorite places to shop and enjoy in Amish Country. 

  1. Air Works (Apple Creek) – contractor grade tools, including DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee and many others. The annual consignment auction and customer appreciation day events are not to be missed. 
  2. Keim Lumber (Charm) – a mecca of all things wood, tools and accessories. A personal favorite of John's is the exotic wood room, including dozens of boards from all over the world. 
  3. Charm Harness and Boot (Charm) – jam packed with quality top name outdoor footwear and apparel, including items for hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities. The outlet store across the street is also a must-stop spot. 
  4. Yoder's Home and Hardware (Walnut Creek) – cast iron cookware, tools, accessories, paint and everything a DIYer (or handy innkeeper) needs. 
  5. Kidron Sports Center / J & L Sports Center (Kidron and Berlin) – guns, ammo, hunting equipment and more. 
  6. Premier Outdoors (Mt. Hope) – A great hunting, sport shooting, outdoor activity place in the heart of Mt. Hope. 
  7. Yoder Blacksmith Supply (Fredericksburg – across from the Ashery) – everything you ever wanted to shoe a horse or forge metal products. 
  8. Walnut Creek Cheese (Walnut Creek) – Uncle Mike’s beef jerky is the best. Mudd Valley Custard would be a close second. 
  9. Miller’s Bakery (Millersburg, outside Charm) – Cheese tarts that are compact bites of deliciousness in several flavors. Pecan is John's personal favorite. 
  10. Kauffman’s Lawn Furniture (Berlin) – Some great outdoor furniture and architectural features.
