The tour was fine (I mean, it was okay - nothing special) until the guide thought it was appropriate to make racist and intolerant comments. I was so disgusted. I was so ready to buy up a storm in the gift shop, too, but then decided to spend my money elsewhere.

This gave us a nice look at the Amish lifestyle. We first toured a house of a (fictional) Amish family. I was surprised that there was a fridge among other modern equipment. Turns out the Amish can substitute gas and compressed air for electricity. Our guide told not only about life in the house but how the Amish handle issues... More

Thank you for reviewing your visit with us on a tour through the Amish Farm and House. Are goats can be very entertaining as you have experienced. While the farm can be a bit sleepy in the winter time as our animals are tucked away in the barn keeping warm, there is still plenty to see and do as you... More

I visited here with 4 friends on a girl's weekend. I was in charge of booking things to do for the 5 of us. I called this place 3 times - once to make a reservation, then to change it twice because I wasn't sure of timing for our other activities. The staff (different people) that I spoke to were... More

We visited the Amish Farm and House with our 16 month old. Eventhough the weather was cold and damp, he loved running around the farm land after being couped up in the car for most of the weekend. We didn't want to visit Lancaster County without learning something about the Amish and their traditions. The tour around the house was... More

This was our first exposure to a discussion of Amish life, and it was certainly an eye-opening introduction. The tour guide - Susan was extremely knowledgeable about Amish culture, habits, and customs having lived among them for many years. The Farm house captured a good cross section of the farm life, housing practices, features of the one-room schooling, and more.

My title says it all. This 90 minute bus tour of Lancaster Amish country was beyond belief. The tour guide/bus driver, Dorcas, provided us with an incredible education about Amish customs, the religion, and the people. She was interesting, intelligent, humorous and shared her experiences growing up in this area. I left not only with knowledge I didn't have before,... More
