The difference between the Amish and the rest if us is mostly lifestyle choices.   They work hard and don't have some of the "luxuries" the rest of us "need."  They don't "need" to make as much so they can sell at lower costs or work at a lower rate.  Plus they provide an astonishing quality for the price.  I'm not knocking them.  It's how they choose to live.

I can't buy logs AND mill at their rates and make money.  Of course I don't have a built-in labor force either.

I do both. I saw logs and buy green or sometimes kiln dry lumber from other mills.  It all depends on if the math works out.
