In years past, the Amish community was predominately a farming community. Because of the decrease in available farmland and the expense of buying farms, many of the Amish homesteads have now become a place for cottage industries. One such industry is the furniture making business which may be operated by an individual Amish family or a larger furniture business which employs extended family and other members of the Amish community. True to the core of Amish belief in the importance of family, these businesses provide a setting where children can observe firsthand their parents modeling the practice of their church beliefs and standards working alongside them on a day-to-day basis.
Since the Amish communities do not have the modern convenience of electricity, they run their equipment with hydraulic and air-powered equipment. Each piece is produced by a skilled
craftsman and not pieced together by a machine. This contributes to the uniqueness and quality of the finished product.
The Amish community has earned the reputation of producing quality furniture. The skill and excellence of these craftsmen are often passed down from one generation to the next. You be the judge.
