Local Color

Our Local Amish Community

Clare County is home to a large community of Amish, with roots going back to the original founders from Switzerland. The Amish way of life is one of simple employment of the land and community. Skills are passed down through the generations and the Amish craftsmen are renowned for their finely crafted products including furniture, quilts, and baskets. Baked goods and produce from their farms are offered for purchase along the roadside when weather permits.

The countryside of an Amish Community invites further exploration. Please enjoy at your leisure a drive through Clare County’s Amish areas, visit featured businesses listed on the attached map and spend a day browsing Amish wares, furniture, quilts and more!

PLEASE SHOW CONSIDERATION. DO NOT VISIT AMISH-OWNED BUSINESSSES ON SUNDAYS AND BE ADVISED THAT THEY MAY ALSO BE CLOSED FOR FAMILY WEDDINGS, HOLIDAYS OR FUNERALS.*
