Snapshots from Amish Country
In June, the Cutlivate’22 Garden Retail Tour visited several independent garden retailers north of Columbus, Ohio.
Baker’s Acres Greenhouse and Garden Center
Baker’s Acres is located in Alexandria, Ohio, about 25 miles east of downtown Columbus. Marking their 40th anniversary this year, Baker’s Acres is run by the second generation of the Baker family.
Located in Loudonville, Richardson’s Greenhouse is a family-owned-and-operated greenhouse and garden retail store in business for nearly 80 years. The company is currently managed by third-generation sisters, with the fourth generation getting more involved.
Sheiyah Market is located in Berlin, the heart of Ohio Amish country, and spans four stores across more than 50,000 square feet. This campus offers gardening accessories and plants, fashion and home décor, and a coffee bar called the “Buggy Brew.” The Garden was built six years ago to meet the increased interest and demand for plants.
