Learn, Discover, Reflect

at The Mennonite Story, St. Jacob's, Ontario.

The Mennonite Story

 We are located on the grounds of the St Jacobs Farmers Market, in a 1839 Log House built by Mennonite ancestors who settled in this area.   We respectfully share our Mennonite/Amish history, faith and culture, and are happy to offer speakers and step-on guides to bus groups, as well as our countryside "back roads" driving tours for smaller private groups & families.    Come see us this summer,  fall, winter or spring!

We feature our video presentation entitled ‘The Old Order’.  Ask about our audio translation available in 9 languages. Extend your experience with an outside tour of the beautiful countryside, and fully immerse yourself in our local Mennonite communities.  And, of course, enjoy Canada's largest Outdoor Farmers Market, where Mennonite vendors and products abound!  While you're here, be sure to get some food that really "schmecks gut!"
