Amana or Amish??

Many people wonder if the Amana folks are Amish.

They are not. They are a very distinctive group, not connected to any other religious community or church.

Watch the video to learn about the differences between Amana and Amish.

There are four areas of distinction that we share with our guests....and with you.

  1. Historical beginnings

  2. Communal vs. community/service

  3. Pacifism

  4. Technology
