When Dan and Ruth Detweiler, members of the Old Order Amish faith, left Ohio in 1997 for a new life in Cub Run, Kentucky, it was with a slower pace of life in mind. Instead they soon found themselves the owners of a hardware and variety store then known as Farmwald’s. They changed the name to Detweiler’s and quickly set about increasing the store’s inventory. Their business now consists of two buildings: one that houses the country store and the other features hardware and feed supplies. Between them, a customer is sure to find everything on his or her list, and more. From shelves of old-fashioned candies and bulk food supplies to Amish clothing, homemade baskets, and other crafts, the country store has a large selection of grocery items, household products and entertainment items. Its large collection of jigsaw puzzles is particularly popular with both their Amish and English customers. As are the singing clocks that often sell so quickly the owners don’t even get the chance to listen to their beautiful sounds. Some visitors stop by just for a delicious homemade sandwich made to order or for jars of homemade jams and jellies.
Just a few feet away sits the hardware store filled from floor to ceiling with plumbing and hardware supplies, landscaping materials, and bags of feed for livestock and pets. Hanging from the building’s massive beams are antique tools and novelty items, along with tricycles and scooters. Out back, visitors can pause from their busy schedules to watch a waterwheel spill gallons of water onto a pond filled with ducks and fish, or to watch the frolicking antics of the Detweiler’s miniature donkeys.
New items are constantly being added, so there’s always a reason to stop in. Detweiler’s Country Store is open Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 5 PM (Central Time), and from 8 AM to 4 PM on Saturday. Closed on Sunday.
