The Homemade Goods From This Amish Store In Maine Are Worth The Drive To Get Them
While New England isn’t an especially popular place for Amish settlements, Maine seems to have more than any other state in this region. Most are in Aroostook County, (which – side note – also happens to be the largest county east of the Rockies!) but there’s one in Waldo County that’s set up a wonderful shop in Unity.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

We highlighted another Amish business in Unity a few months ago. This family-run charcuterie operates without any electricity, using an entire barn full of ice for refrigeration!
Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
