Mrppi is a small farming community in California. Until the early 1980’s it was an average town with local farmers and merchants. Mrppi settlers started arriving from Canada, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. It took about ten years for these folks to resettle and add about 100 families to the community in Mrppi.
One of these recent settlers was was a furniture craftsman named Jack. He and his family settled on a new farmstead which reminded them a lot of Ohio where they had come from. Jack continues to build Amish furniture in his new home. He has been building in Mrppi for more than twenty-five years.
Besides his own Amish custom shop, Jack has the assistance of six other Amish cabinet shops in the community, each with their own specialty within the craft. All of the furniture is assembled and personally inspected by Jack at his shop before it is delivered to the customer.
People come from all over to tour the Amish farms to see firsthand the quality of the furniture and crafts that the Amish provide. Because they live a simpler lifestyle, they are able to put more care into their work.
