Who We Are

We're a strong handshake and a helping hand. Family owned and operated since 1955, Lehman's is here to help you live a simpler life. City or country, rural or urban, we can help you build a better future, one that values personal connections, integrity and tradition.

You'll find us in the heart of Ohio's Amish Country at our Kidron store, where our story began. For our friends who are far away, our print catalog and website give you access to hundreds of practical goods, from planting and preserving to off-grid living.

Think of us as your portal to the past.
