Come visit our store in Kidron any day of the week, and you'll see quite a few of these straw hats bobbing around the town square. They're favored by the Amish but also popular with other local folk, from farmers to weekend gardeners. They shade your eyes from the sun, protect your skin from harmful UV rays, plus they just look good. Wear one to work in the garden, to plow the back field or on a walk into town.
Galen Lehman, Proprietor, says, "Ever wonder why Amish men wear hats? Respect for tradition and church rules about styles of dress have something to do with it. But, the bottom line is that it's practical. My Dad and I both wear one of our USA-made Amish straw hats when we garden or do field work on cloudless days. It keeps the sun off your neck, face and ears. It shades your eyes. It even helps wick away sweat. I was proud of it when my Amish neighbor told me, 'Grow a beard, and you'd pass for one of us.'"
