Visit Harmony Minnesota

According to the story, the naming of Harmony came about during an argument about the town's proposed name. Someone in the group said, "please, let's just have harmony." And so it has been ever since.

One of the primary reasons many people visit Harmony Minnesota is to learn about the Amish people who live there and to buy some of the goods they produce. If you want a guided visit, sign up for one of the Amish Tours available in the area. 

If you choose to explore on your own you can do a self-guided tour by purchasing a CD and listen as you explore. Please respect the privacy of the Amish community. That includes not questioning them about their way of life or their religion.

You will see signs in front of some Amish homes advertising "Quilts," "Eggs," or "Honey," etc. In some cases they use the honor system where you take the product and leave the cash. If they come out to transact business, it is just that, it is not an invitation into their home.
