Press Release ● Story Ideas ● History
960 Wheat Ridge Road
West Union, OH 45693
West Union, Ohio ĖThe down economy has brought many folks back to basics. And thatís just what Amish merchants like Millerís Furniture & Bakery cater to in Southern Ohioís Wheat Ridge Amish community.
Yesteryearís family daytrip is todayís staycation where an inexpensive exploration of something unique near home is the way to spend a day. Many are even packing picnic baskets instead of hitting the nearest drive-through while en-route to their weekend adventure.
Millerís offers not only a great escape at a great price, they can load you up on anything you need while youíre there Ė picnic foods, baked goods, indoor & outdoor wood furniture galore, and bulk foods for you to stock up and take home.
Off the beaten path, a pilgrimage down Wheat Ridge Road in the family truckster (okay SUV) will treat its passengers with a view of the simple life. Millerís is in the heart of Adams County Amish Country in Southern Ohio nestled in the picturesque foothills of Appalachia. It is here that the senses dance to the rhythmic spin of a buggy wheel, the harmony of a handcrafted armoire getting fine tuned, and a hypnotizing breeze carrying the oven-fresh-baked apple pie across the field.
A trip here is a trip to yesteryear where we could all take a lesson in living the good life with less. There is plenty that the Amish can teach us about scaling back and enjoying better quality during tough times.
Some things stand out in contrast to big box shopping. Instead of buying cheap goods at a cheap price, Millerís prides itself on providing top-notch quality at bargain prices. Not only that, their goods arenít made overseas or mass produced. Not only do you buy heirloom quality, you buy authenticity. And if they donít have what you want, theyíll make it! Itís the Amish way of doing business.
The workmanship at Millerís isnít just crafty, itís creative. In this economy, maybe hand crafted furniture in cherry wood is over the budget but you really want to have a quality wood piece for less. Millerís can turn brown maple to look just like cherry and save you a pretty penny. So it goes.
Not much has changed in the 32 years since Harry and Lydia Miller settled here. In 1977, they started baking with their six children in the farmhouse. All it took was sharing their baked goods before people stopped by in droves to buy some bread, pies, cinnamon roll, you name it. Harry would often visit Holmes County, Ohio and bring back furniture, which sold, well, like hotcakes. The more trips, the more furniture, the more sales. And so the farming days for the Millerís, raising cattle, hogs, sheep and such gave way to a thriving baking and woodworking business.
Today, the 300-acre farm has 34,000 square feet of furniture under one roof, plus more outside, and a separate building for the bakery and another for the bulk food store. The cash registers are powered by wind-generated energy. Plus the Millerís use a lot of solar energy and air compressors. In the parking lot, itís not uncommon for a horse and buggy to be standing next to a BMW.
The Miller family is in its third generation in their Adams County, Ohio home. Most of Harry and Lydiaís children run things now. Daniel is at the Furniture Store, Larry at the Bakery, and Harry Jr. at the Bulk Food Store. Malinda helps too. The other two sons, Gerold and David come back often to visit. All together, the six children have provided Harry and Lydia 20 grandkids. With that, the family business and legacy looks like it will continue serving their loyal customers for years to come.
Throughout the year, the Millerís have special events planned to give back to their customers in times of greater need by offering specials from wood products to baked goods and more. Updates and details are posted at www.ohiotraveler.com/ohio_amish_stores.htm.
For a day in the country, Millerís is a crossroads in time. The Amish offerings at Millerís Bakery, Furniture and Bulk Foods are plentiful and diverse. You name it they have it. But if by chance they donít, theyíll make it Ė just like theyíve been doing for decades.

Harry and Lydia Miller settled in West Union, Ohioís small but growing Wheat Ridge Amish community in 1977. They were farmers raising hogs, cattle, and sheep.
On the weekends, Harry, Lydia and their six children baked. Their surrounding community loved everything out of the Millerís oven and came to buy what they desired straight from the farmhouse kitchen until 1988.
Then, Gerold Miller and his wife Becky took over baking and carted the goods to a tiny 10x16 building to sell the baked goods. The 10x16 building grew to 24x36, and then 32x64.
After returning from trips to Holmes County in Northeast Ohio, the Millerís offered furniture for sale at their bakery. The more they brought back the more that sold. Finally, a separate building was dedicated to this side business. They converted what used to be a barn near the store and used it for many years. Today itís a warehouse.
With newer, larger buildings sprouting up on the grounds, the Millers had plenty of room and could now serve the tour bus groups that discovered their farm. They started selling bulk foods, spices, cheese, jellies, lunchmeat and more. People couldnít get enough of the Holmes County cheese and trail bologna. Soon, they outgrew another building.
It was about this time, Gerold started selling lawn furniture and the business continued to boom so Gerold brought in his siblings to help manage everything. Daniel and his wife Mary helped with the furniture store. Larry purchased the baking equipment from Gerold since he and his wife Esther had been the lead bakers for the past several years. In 1996, Larry built the present day bakery building. The bulk foods store became the responsibility of Harry Jr and his wife Leah. By now, Malinda moved to Indiana with her husband Alva Jr and the youngest brother, David, moved to Florida.
Recently, the furniture store expanded, adding on another 12,000 square feet. Today, the Millerís 300 acre farm has homes for those that live their, including the old farmhouse, 34,000 square feet of furniture under one roof, plus much more outdoor furniture, gazebos and barns outside. Across the parking lot are the bakery and bulk food buildings.
More than 30 years after the first loaves of bread, pies and other baked goods filled the southwest Appalachia air with Millerís baking fresh from the over, a family celebrates their blessings. To show appreciation for the employees and customers that have been so kind to them over the decades, they plan to give back in the form of numerous sales planned throughout the year.
Although Harry Miller has since passed, his legacy lives through this close-knit Amish family. It probably wonít be long before newer or larger buildings are built to keep up with growth. Some of Harryís 20 grandchildren will eventually assume responsibilities from their parents and keep Millerís Bakery, Furniture & Bulk Foods alive for many more years.
