Popcorn was first introduced to European settlers by Native Americans who had been cultivating corn for thousands of years. It’s been in the Americas for so long that it made its way into many American traditions. From fairs to movie theaters and sporting events, popcorn has become a cultural staple and is downright nostalgic for many.

Keep it basic...
We sell our popcorn in kernels because we believe popcorn deserves to be prepared the old-fashioned way: hand-popped at home. Amish Country Popcorn harvests over 6 million pounds of kernels each year. Meet each of our 12 varieties below.
The Midnight Blue variety is hulless and small with a sweet, memorable flavor. This variety has its own delicious flavor, but also pairs well with our seasonings. For best results, this corn should be popped at a higher temperature.
Our Medium Yellow popcorn is crunchy and dense. This nostalgic variety is similar to the XL Caramel Type and the Baby Yellow. It is delicious served "movie theater style," with butter and salt, or with our seasonings and glazes.
The Purple variety has fewer hulls and a unique taste. When popped, the kernels are small and tender. Try it with salt and butter, or the seasonings we offer in our store. For best results, this corn should be popped at a slightly higher temperature.
This popcorn is an Amish Country favorite. Here you have the finest white popcorn available. If Baby White popcorn is unavailable, this is the next best thing.
Our Red variety pops into an antioxidant rich, crunchy snack. This variety has fewer hulls and medium sized kernels. Like our other "colorful" varieties, Red popcorn has a unique taste and pairs well with our seasonings.
Our Blue variety is medium to large in size and has a unique, sweet flavor. Blue popcorn is also higher in antioxidants and has less hulls than our other varieties. Try it with salt and butter, or the seasonings we offer in our store! For best results, this corn should be popped at a higher temperature.
Our Rainbow popcorn is a blend of Amish Country Popcorn favorites- the best of all our varieties in one bag. Pop the kernels for a fun snack, or use them as decoration.
Extra Large Caramel
Our Extra-Large Caramel Type popcorn is the second-largest variety here at Amish Country Popcorn. Its large size and crispy texture make it perfect for our caramel, chocolate, and cinnamon glazes. It is delicious with butter and seasonings as well.
The Baby Yellow is similar to our Medium Yellow popcorn with smaller kernels. It is a crunchier variety and is delicious with salt and butter (movie theater style), and pairs well with our broad range of seasonings.
Our Ladyfinger variety is a bestseller, and the smallest variety we offer. Hulless, and tender, it has been said to "melt in your mouth" and is perfect for people with sensitive teeth. The kernels are easy to pop and are delicious with butter and salt, kettle corn style, or with one of our many seasonings.
Mushroom popcorn is unique because it pops into a circular or mushroom shape and is larger and crunchier than our other varieties. Mushroom popcorn is perfect for fun recipes like caramel corn and pairs well with our spices and glazes.
...or Spice it Up!
Popcorn is such a unique food that even in its simplest form, it is gold. (but it can be red, purple, or blue, too!) You can enjoy it with just a little bit of salt, or you can add some extra spice. We offer a variety of tried-and-true glazes, oils, and seasonings. Whether you like your snack sweet, salty, or spicy, there is something for everyone.

Where it all began
In 1965 in the Amish community of Berne, Indiana, a man named Roy Lehman planted a small plot of popcorn for his six year old son, Brian. Brian began growing popcorn for his family and friends. He remembers carrying popcorn to school for his sixth grade teacher, who was one of his most loyal customers.
When he graduated, he wanted to stay on the family farm and continue to grow and sell popcorn. Fifty-five years later, Brian is still in the popcorn business. The people who know him will tell you that he is known for two things: serving the Lord and selling popcorn. His life goal is to tell people everywhere how to get to heaven. Do you have questions about heaven? Brian would love to chat!
