In the mid 1960’s, Ammon P. Stoltzfus, son of an Amish farmer, began a contracting firm. After leaving the Amish Church and leaning on a rich heritage of hard work and faith in God, Ammon and his wife, Barbara, along with their seven children kept the business going while simultaneously working their large poultry farm.
The 1970’s opened a new chapter in the business, as Ammon’s sons, Merle and David, joined the company, expanding the custom home building and commercial aspects of the growing enterprise. The company continued to expand throughout the following decade, building their reputation as a builder of high quality homes and commercial structures.
As the 1980’s came to an end, Ammon’s vision for both the contracting business and the farm blended together in Summerfield at Elverson – the company’s first large-scale community. For years he told his family, “Someday, we’ll grow houses on this land.” Merle and David were delighted with this prospect, for they had spent many summer days picking rocks out of the stony ground.
Today, Ammon is with the Lord, but before he passed away, he handed the reins of the family business to his two sons. Under their leadership, Stoltzfus Enterprises, Ltd. now operates as a general contractor, home builder, and full-service realty company.
