The other day I received the 2015 Amish Service Guide - America's Guide to Amish Businesses in the mail.  I don't recall sending for it, but who knows?  This 32 page booklet contains some gorgeous photographs as well as four pages of very handy maps of the main Ohio Amish areas.  This would be a must have for any tourists to Ohio Amish communities.  During the cold winter months I plan on spending time making up my itinerary for my Springtime trip to Ohio Amish Country with the help of this 2015 Amish Service Guide.

Detailed maps of Ohio Amish Country

The main gist of this booklet is to highlight Amish businesses in Ohio.  There are so many entertaining ads in this booklet, like this one for Mary C. Miller's Bulk Food Country Store in Dalton, Ohio:  Her hours are Mon - Sat 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Evenings by chance.  I love that!  Maybe Mary will be in after 5:00 pm and maybe she won't.  Mary's Bulk Food Country Store has quite the delicious variety of food and other items.

Pages 24 and 25 have photos of charming Amish one room schoolhouses.  Elsewhere you can find photos of Amish farmers baling hay, several horse pictures, and my personal favorite is the cover depicting a huge Amish home with clothes hanging on the line by beautiful trees changing colors in the Fall.

If you are planning a trip to Ohio Amish Country, this booklet will certainly give you some new ideas on what to do while there.  The Directory of Businesses and Calendar of Events by County are very worthwhile to consider while planning your trip.

Page 2 gives you information on where this publication is created.  They have a Facebook page at  You can see the entire booklet on line at
