It all started in 1977 in a small barn out on Scenic Road in beautiful Lancaster County, PA. The barn was on a farm owned by Mr. Lapp, a man whose family had been working the land in the Amish way for generations. Needless to say, Mr. Lapp knew a thing or two about farming, and about creating products that would make the job more efficient. A two-wheeled wheelbarrow that remains the industry standard today for ease of use, strength, and longevity—he was the first to market it, way back in 1982. How about a 10 cubic foot wheelbarrow that is designed to be 32” wide and easily fit through a standard stall gate? He solved that one too, back when the industry standard width for 10 cubic foot wheelbarrows was 36”. When you do the job yourself, you learn a lot about what works and what doesn’t. In 2003, Mr. Lapp chose to return to his first love: farming. He sold Scenic Road Manufacturing to David Esh, a long-time employee who continues to run the company today. In keeping with its roots, Scenic Road Manufacturing remains a privately-owned Amish business, always true to its strong values when it comes to family and faith.
