Amish Country vacation in Ohio you will want to visit Ashery Country Store. It is one of the most popular bulk food stores in the area. They carry deli meats, cheese, pasta, candy, baked goods, sips, cookies & snacks, soup mixes, baking items, spices, dried fruits, jam, and so much more. The locals say, "If you cannot find the spice you are looking for at Ashery then you are not going to find it".
In the 1960's this store was located in an Amish neighbor's basement. In the 1970's it moved to the current location and has had several renovations since. The name, Ashery, came from a soap making factory which used to be located across the street from the current location. The soap consisted of lye and ashes, hence the name Ashery. The original owner passed away in 2004 and today Ashery Country Store is run by his son, Curt Yoder.
If you visit this store on Saturday, September 8, 2012, they will be honoring Grandparents. You will receive 3% off of your purchase that day plus a free ice cream bar in honor of grandparents everywhere.
The Ashery Country Store is located on State Route 241 just north of Mt. Hope, Ohio.
