Amish Sawmills in Augusta, WI

If you are looking to do some 'Amishing' in the Eau Claire area, don't expect to find your typical cottage industries like other parts of the state.

In this particular region, Eau Claire county, there is an absence of the familiar Amish bakeries, quilt shops, bent & dents, and bulk food stores. During our explorations, we found numerous sawmills and lumber yards. After talking to an Amishman who runs a small furniture making business out of his barn, we learned that sawmills are the most common industry in the area next to farming. With farmland being scarce and costly, these sawmills provide employment for Amish men to support their families.  

Real horsepower is used to haul the wood, not forklifts.
