Why were we voted the best place to visit in Amish Country? Why is there “a store nowhere else” like us? Because we exist to create A Simpler Life for you and your loved ones. Jay Lehman opened Lehman’s in 1955 to serve the Amish with practical, non-electric tools, appliances and home goods. And along the way he learned from them the importance of offering satisfaction, sustainability and relationships to the community where we work and live, in an honest and understandable way. We exist to help you break through the clutter, chaos and confusion that is the modern world. You want to build traditions with your family, learn old-time skills, grow and harvest your own food, and we are here to help. Visit us any day (except Sunday, when we are closed so we can spend time with family) in the village of Kidron, Ohio. Please allow at least two hours to tour the store – it’s like going shopping and visiting a museum at the same time.
