Founded in 1955 by Jay Lehman to serve the local Amish with non-electric household goods, Lehman’s has grown into an international business, shipping product all over the world.
Jay was born and raised in the tiny burg of Kidron, OH, but spent several year traveling and working overseas. The business experience huge growth spurts during the energy crisis in the early 1970s, as well as during Y2K in late 1919.
Over the years, Jay’s mission has not changed – to provide a simpler way of life in chaotic times. He would love to teach today’s world, yesterday’s skills – sustainable home heating; understand food preservation and consumption; comforting time with family and friends; and a good day’s work that ends in satisfying exhaustion.
Today Lehman’s is run by his son, Galen Lehman, CEO and his daughter Glenda Lehman Ervin, Vice President of Marketing and hundreds of other committed Lehman’s employees.
With a retail store in Kidron, the heart of Ohio’s Amish country, print catalog and web site, Lehman’s has made the simpler life affordable for anyone, any where.
