Editor’s Note: National Simplicity Day is July 12. In celebration, we are taking you on a photo tour of our favorite place, Ohio’s Amish Country, an area known for its simplicity and beautiful views. Enjoy!
Slow, relaxing and rural – welcome to Ohio’s Amish Country.
Rolling hills, farmland and horses enjoying a grassy snack.The countryside is famous for spectacular sunsets.
Take the road less traveled. Literally.
Drying the clothes using solar power (the sun!)
Plentiful gardens are a way of life.
For family fun that’s close to home, Ohio’s Amish Country is the perfect weekend getaway. Avoid the city and head to the country!
We are all tired of being stuck at home – why not plan a road trip with your family to Wayne and Holmes County? Your first stop should be Lehman’s in Kidron. We are often called The Gateway to Amish Country, and we were named the Best Destination in our area (for the 5th year in a row, I humbly add).
Listen to what our customers say about Lehman’s:
“A step back in time Lehman’s is a fun place to see. While it is a store it is also a museum and art gallery. The old barn that is the main building is fun to see. When you go into the building don’t forget to look up and check out the construction of the old barn. The wood carving art in the buggy shop is enthralling. Beautiful work. Walking through the large store there are several items from history. The new merchandise is a step back in time. Who knew that there are places that still make this stuff. There is stuff there I have never seen before and you will be hard pressed to walk out without purchasing something that you will find very useful. Well worth a trip.”

Glenda Lehman Ervin is the daughter of company founder Jay Lehman and VP of Marketing. “I love talking to people who are on their journey to a simpler life. Step by step, we are all on the path to a meaningful, satisfying life. We are thrilled that Lehman’s can be a part of that journey.” Glenda lives in a woods with her husband and two children, just a few miles north of Lehman’s, in Kidron, OH. They have two cats named, surprisingly uncreatively, Baby Cat and Girl Cat.
