Just a farm with old equipment with a house tour that kids will not last through. There were too goats following us around which was a amusing but that's it.

The guide (not Amish) was very friendly, informative and guided us through the Amish house and spoke about the Amish community and lifestyle. The farm and house has no Amish people. In short if you pay to go to the zoo you expect to see the animals.

Thank you for giving us your honest review. We are glad to read that your tour guide was informative and friendly. I'm sorry you did not get to meet Elam our Amish Farrier as well as his brothers and Katie our Amish school teacher on your visit. On most Fridays and Saturdays Amish ladies from our community offer baked goods... More

Difficult to get to if you are car-less. No other option than to take Lancaster's bus system. I rode all day, and several buses were late or came early. The stops are random and the maps online not really a full representation of where the route stops. If you know basic Amish information, you may be bored in the house... More

The bus tour is a great way to start your visit to Lancaster County, PA. Our guide was knowledgable of the area and we learned so much about the Amish and their culture during our tour. We weren't able to stop at some of the tour's normal attractions because it was Sunday ( Amish businesses are closed on Sunday) but... More

We booked the guided house tour, farm and bus tour of the area. Everyone one was knowledgeable and friendly. It seems out of place, right next to a target store, but these things have grown after the farm. Good for families.

It was wonderful to read that you enjoyed our Countryside Tour and Guided tour through our 1805 house. The shopping center next to us can make it seem as though our farm is out of place, however, it definitely doesn't feel that way once you are through our doors and visiting our 15-acre working farm. Thank you so much for... More

We appreciate your review of our property. While the retail store next to us may seem a bit daunting, once you are in our farm house and on the farm itself you truly feel like you are stepping away from the busy lifestyle of the world. Taking a stroll to the schoolhouse, or visiting with our resident artisans is a... More

We booked the premium package as a group. We first went on the bus tour. We had 14 people so we had our own bus. The woman was very informative. I enjoyed driving around and seeing the different things. the children got antsy after a while. maybe 90 minutes is too long for them. The bus stopped at two different... More

Here, at the Amish Farm and House, we strive to make each visit an experience to remember. It was great to read that the kids were able to make a jump rope with Larry, our rope maker, while at the farm. The scooter run is also a great way for the kids to burn off that extra energy if they... More

The tour started with a guided tour of the house with loads of information about the Amish way of living, then continues with a self-guided tour of the village. I spent a long time talking to the lady in the one room schoolhouse and to the woodcarver and was impress by his carvings from toothpicks (really). A good way to... More

My wife and I took the bus tour. The driver Marge was excellent. She took us all around the Lancaster area. She knew just about everything you would want to know about the Amish and the "English". We stopped at a farm stand and the owners were very nice people. The cookies we bought were very good. After the bus... More
