A very significant part of our heritage is the Amish community established here. Harmony’s Amish community is strictly “Old Order” Amish, meaning that the people are very private and have strong Christian convictions. •The Amish of Harmony began their move to the Harmony area in 1974 and have grown to over 1,000 people with seven church “districts” and ten one-room schools. Close by is another Amish community in the Granger, Minnesota area. The Amish of Harmony only use limited technology in their homes, businesses, and

Jams, rugs, quilts, baked goods, and cashew crunch are among the items available for sale at local Amish homes. •Visitors to the Harmony area can visit Amish farms and merchants by taking a tour through Amish Tours of Harmony which is located at the Sugar Plum House on the Village Green or at Essence of Harmony on Main Street.
