Nana's Primitive Barn
Nana's Primitive Barn is located on The Crothers' family farm, Cedar Brook Farm, the location where Angie and her husband raised their children and have lived for 26 years. The farm is located in Adams County, OH right in the heart of Amish Country, just a little over an hour's drive from Cincinnati. It is located on Unity Road, about 4-1/2 miles from the intersection of OH SR-32 and OH SR-247 (see MAP ).
Getting to the store is an easy drive thru the country and you can plan your visit around the many other things to do in the area.
Visit the Amish Shops - Yoder's Bakery and Furniture (formerly Keim Family Market) is just east of Seaman and Miller’s Bakery & Furniture is on Wheat Ridge Road. Both are open every day except Sunday.
Book a stay at the Murphin Ridge Inn, "a respite from daily life nestled in the heart of Southern Ohio's Amish country."
Visit the Serpent Mound National Historic Landmark in Peebles.
Catch an auto race at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex.
Take a canoe ride down the Ohio Brush Creek. There are several public canoe launches on the creek where you can launch your own canoe or kayak. You can also rent a canoe or kayak at MoonDoggie LIVERee on Brush Creek Road, a bit south of West Union.
Eat lunch at Cruiser's Diner in Seaman. The diner is not too far from the OH SR-32/OH SR-247 intersection.
Angie spent most of her working life as a nurse, and as a wife and mother, and now spends her time as Nana to 12 grandchildren.
In 2022 Angie decided it was time to do something she had always thought about doing; to open a shop which would supply all of the household items every woman needs and wants!!
Thus, the start of Nana's Primitive Barn.
Farmhouse and Primitive Decor Origin
Farmhouse Decor dates back to the 1700's when it first appeared in the United States. The design was more about practicality than aesthetics, choosing function over appearance. Items were made from natural materials and colors, and tended to be simple and natural. Years later, homeowners still favor the simple beauty of farms and farmhouses, and the simple, uncluttered design that will serve for generations to come.
Primitive Decor stems from life for early 1800's American pioneers. Their art, crafts, and traditions have a simple, homespun beauty of their own. The Primitive style is designed to have an old or antique look but is created using new materials. This allows you to start your decorating with any element that reflects the pioneers such as candles, wooden signs and wall decor, hooked rugs, potpourri jars, table runners, etc.
