Appalachian Amish is a joint venture in the foothills of the Appalachians in Southwestern New York state between Randy Barber and an Amish community that he befriended several years ago.

Randy and his crew responsibly harvest trees and deliver them to saw mills operated by the Amish to be turned into beams and timbers. The result is beautiful, hand-crafted wood products that can be used for new construction projects such as log cabins, or simply for accents.

Randy is passionate about performing his work in the most sustainable way possible so that future generations can use the forest. He takes it so seriously that he makes sure nothing goes to waste, keeping even the lower-grade wood to ship to paper mills as opposed to simply letting it lie in the forest.

He even makes sure they do much of their felling during the winter months when the ground is harder, meaning less damage to the surrounding forest. Appalachian Amish is certified green by the New York Logger Certificate Training Program.

Appalachian Amish are experts at selecting the best timber for your project, and they have several styles and types from which to choose, including skip-peeled logs or pressure-washed logs, hardwood, softwood, bark-on, peeled or milled timber.

Once you’ve selected your timber, Appalachian Amish will bring it to you and build your log cabin, pool house or man cave wherever you want.

When buildings and the supplies used to build them are constructed by hand you know you’re getting top-notch quality that will stand the test of time. Appalachian Amish delivers it all, and they do it in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.
