Backroads, rolling hills, Amish buggies and popular Amish country destinations is what you will experience when heading out on this road trip.

Time to hit the road.

In order to make for an easy road trip day, I have gone ahead and taken the liberty to create your road trip itinerary, stop-by-stop. Your adventure begins in Orrville at a place with a very familiar name.

Find all your favorite iconic Smucker jams and jellies, as well as ice cream toppings in this company store. The minute you enter the store your eyes will be drawn to the jelly and jam wall.  Don’t forget to look up at the strawberry light!  In addition to seasonal merchandise, the  store also showcases many of their other brands like Jif peanut butter, Folgers coffee and even pet products.   The store also sells gift baskets.  What a great gift idea for a future bride, off to school college student, or even a new neighbor.

What can I say? There is no store in Ohio’s Amish Country like Lehman’s.  It always seems to make everyone’s list of “must stops” when visiting the area. What is the draw you ask? Since 1955 Lehman’s has been serving the area Amish community with non-electric items, home goods, appliances, gardening items and more.  But as Paul Harvey used to say, “But wait there is more!”.  From puzzles to oil lamps, to a children’s toy area, clothing department, house goods, pantry items, wood burning stoves and more. As many times as I have visited Lehman’s, I still feel I have not shopped the entire store. My favorite sections: the housewares and garden area.

While there, make sure your check out the old-time soda pop section.  Nothing like a cold Grape Nehi or Frosty Root Beer for the road.

Tip: Public restrooms available.
Handicapped accessible.
Senior discount is offered on Wednesdays.

Ashery Bulk Food Store - Ohio Amish Country

8922 OH-241, Fredericksburg, OH 44627
330.359.5615 | asherycountrystore.com

One of my favorite bulk food stops in Amish Country.  Ashery’s is my go to stop for bulk spices and baking supplies. You will be amazed by there selection of bulk candies.  If you like pimento cheese spread, make sure you grab a container of their made in house spread. Samples are available. Don’t forget to grab a tub of lard if you are planning on making any pie crusts.  At the deli you can order sandwiches to go.  I always order a pound of their bacon, thinly sliced.  The thinly sliced bacon cooks up fast and crisp and is perfect to use as a topping on baked potatoes, salads or soup. If you like peanut butter their freshly ground peanut butter and cashew spread prices are always a bargain.

Tip: Public restrooms available.

Heini’s is just one of two cheese stops this trail. Each one is different.

“Established in 1935, Bunker Hill Cheese, or Heini’s, is a third-generation, family owned company. John (Hans) Dauwaulder trained as a master cheese-maker in Switzerland and came to the States in the 1920’s to display his Artisan talents in a growing cheese market.”

Did someone say cheese? You are going to be amazed at the variety of cheeses that are sold at Heini’s Cheese Chalet. Classic cheeses, a large variety of cheddar cheeses including curds, swiss cheese, hot cheese, specialty cheeses, cheese spreads, and more. Your charcuterie board is going to love you.  Heini’s also makes cheese fudge. Wait until you try it.

In addition to their numerous cheese selections, you will also find a nice variety of jams, smoked meats, crackers, snacks, chocolates, bulk candies and gift items.  When shopping, remember the holidays are just around the corner.

If you arrive  early you just may see cheese being made through the windows of the self-guided tour.
