The Harmony area is home to Minnesota’s largest Amish settlements. Over 100 Old Order Amish families live in the countryside near Harmony. The group is known as the “Harmony-Canton Amish.” “Old Order” indicates that they are very private people, and use only limited technology in their homes and businesses.
The Amish of Harmony began their move to this area in 1974 and have grown to over 1,000 people with ten church districts and ten one-room schools. Another Old Order Amish group has recently begun settling in nearby Granger, Minnesota.
The Amish primarily make their living through farming, construction and by making and selling crafts. Baskets, furniture, jams, rugs, quilts, baked goods and cashew crunch are among the items available for sale in local businesses and at farmers markets, Amish homes and roadside stands.
Visitors to the Harmony area can visit Amish farms and merchants by taking a tour.
For over 20 years our guides have been providing top quality tours at reasonable prices. Step back in time and experience the lifestyle of Old Order Amish.
