And Amish Way of Life

By Rocco Satullo, your tour guide to fun!

Keim Family Market is owned by Dan Miller, an Amish man. This is a story about his culture, community, business and family. It’s about an honest day’s work and the Amish way of life.

In the mid-1970s, an Amish wagon-train of sorts left the Northeast Ohio Amish heartland and arrived in rural Adams County, Ohio about an hour east of Cincinnati. The fledgling community built its homes and dug into the land to farm at the edge of Appalachia. In the early 1980s, hard times fell on Roy Keim so he took his wife Mattie’s homemade pies to sell along State Route 32. He earned $68 from truckers with a sweet tooth. And it is with that humble beginning, Keim grew a popular bakery, furniture and bulk food store.  Click here to read the rest of the story.
