At Lehman’s, our mission is to help you take the next step on your journey to a simpler life. A simpler life is both sustainable and understandable and we believe buying locally when possible is key to our mission.
We have hundreds of vendors within a few miles of our store, many of whom are Amish. We also have lots of non-Amish vendors right here in Ohio, as well as across the United States. We have curated a list of some of our favorite USA Made products – enjoy!
Save money on your electric bill with a beautifully crafted wooden drying rack from Lehman’s. You’ll also get maximum drying space with our hardwood-framed clothes drying rack! Use it indoors or outdoors to dry your clothes without needing electricity. This drying rack is Amish made, once at a time.
This time-tested kitchen tool is a must for bakers! Unlike traditional whisks that are made with several wires, this dough whisk is designed with just two spiral wires.
This allows for ingredients to pass through easily for better, quicker mixing and less clumping. And ours is crafted locally right here in Ohio.
Each piece in our collection of hand-crafted toys and doll furniture is made by a local Amish craftsman. It’s more than a toy, it’s window into a way of life. Crafted out of wood, these toys are so well made they can be passed down from child to child for generations of fun.
Rich and sweet, smooth or spicy, we have the best tastes to top off your toast, bagels and sandwiches. Find the creamiest nut butters, including our exclusive peanut butter spread (a favorite in Amish Country). Then choose from our unique flavorful jams and jellies, many locally made near our store – fresh and oh-so-delicious!
Get more done with three functions in one garden hoe! It’s made locally by an Amish craftsman who didn’t like the hoes he was using – so he designed his own! Our Precision Garden Hoe features a large head that works like a Dutch hoe, push-pull hoe and a traditional hoe all in one.
This is the ONLY wide flat-wick olive oil lamp available. Created with needs of Lehman’s customers in mind, this lamp doesn’t use any paraffin or petroleum-based fuels–burns for hours with ordinary olive oil! Simple to use, long-lasting burn time and ecologically sensible. Ideal for emergency kits too. Made in the USA just for Lehman’s.
Similar bowls are often seen in antique stores, because that’s how long they last. We found an Ohio company still making these durable kitchen bowls. They’re the ideal size and weight for mixing, baking and serving almost anything. Interesting note, the “shoulder” on these bowls is the wide lip at the top.
Now made of case-hardened steel, our wood splitting froe is better than ever. The blade is stronger, giving you more use and great results for kindling, shingles, furniture, baskets and more. Use this froe with split lumber.
Designed for backpackers, campers, college students and world travelers, this handy portable water filter weighs under two pounds and includes a portable 22-oz water purifier bottle for use out on the trail; a stainless steel 1-qt passive purifier with Black Berkey® element for the cabin, campsite, dorm room or workplace; and priming button. Better yet, it made here in the USA.
10. Case Knives
Founded in 1889 by the Case brothers, Case Knives have been a favorite with collectors for generations. Because they’re carefully crafted with the finest materials and twice tested for durability, Case knives are not only passed down for generations, but they have found their way into the hands of famous admirers and avid collectors, including some famous prize-winning bull riders, country music greats, and even former U.S. presidents.
Today, Case is owned by Zippo Manufacturing Company, makers of the world-famous Zippo® windproof lighter, another family-owned business based in Bradford, PA.
In addition to these featured products, we have hundreds of other USA made products, both at Lehmans.com and in our store in Kidron, OH.
