Almost Amish is the “dream child” of the owners Donna & Gary Krueger. In 2011 we began to wonder how we would spend our time once our last child left for college. Gary comes from a long line of gardeners and has quite the green thumb! We can our own food as well as jars to give away to friends & family. We are huge admirers of the Amish people and their way of life. It is a simple, Christian & self-sufficient lifestyle. They are called the ‘Plain Folk” for a reason! We have read every book we could get our hands on as well as studied their culture! After a little though we decided “Almost Amish” suited us and our business.
My Mom and I hand stitch the towels and quilts in addition to other items. We consider this a “lost art” as everything seems to be done by machines nowadays. Our customers tell us wonderful stories of their Grandmothers items that have been hand stitched and passed down to them through the years.
We grow our own foods and can them in a variety of ways. Gary is the baker and the homemade noodle maker! He grew up spending the summers with his Grannie canning and baking goods.
All of our products are truly made with love from the heart. We both work full time jobs and have managed to get a little slice of the “Simple Life”. Let us share this with you!
