Unfortunately this used to be a nice place w a self guided tour of the animals and the farm and plenty of insights into the Amish way of life.. But w a huge Target sign looming in the background now.. Kinda depressing

We're sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the surroundings here at the Amish Farm and House. Ten years ago developers pushed into the area transforming the front and side field into the Target complex. Initially, we were disappointed that there was a Target next door but we realized commercialization is the reality for many Amish families today. The... More

What was exciting about visiting this attraction is that it felt like Old McDonald's Farm. You heard braying from the donkeys and neighing from the horses at the same time. They seemed to answer each other. You can also find Amish wares to purchase. It's really a fun place to visit!!!

Thanks so much for your 5-star review. We also love all the sounds of the farm. I always know when the animals are being fed in the morning as you can hear them all bantering for attention and food. Thank you for sharing your experience. More

We had a great time learning about the Amish and seeing the beautiful scenery of the farmland and animals. We went on a Sunday so we did not visit the Amish businesses as they were closed. We did see a lot of the home where "church" was held and got to see the youngsters "courting". It was a lovely tour.

We do both the guided house tour and guided bus tour. We are satisfied with the bus tour part. Debi was knowledgeable and introduced the Amish culture very clearly. Even as a non Native speaker, I can understand everything except the joke part. My husband, I and our 11 years old son learnt a lot from the bus tour. on... More

The Amish Farm and House is a definite must go when you visit Lancaster. Although not a full day or overly exciting place to visit, it really gives you a solid understanding of the Amish community and their way of life. If you are already in Lancaster, you should definitely be informed about the people who live here. The staff... More

Had a wonderful and beautiful day touring Lancaster with my family. The tour guide Debbie was extremely friendly and enthusiastic! She was also very knowledgable about the Amish people and we found the tour to be very educational and informative. The self guided farm tour was also very interesting; there was a lot to see from a school house to... More

This used to be a lovely formerly Amish farm which could be toured by visitors and was quite authentic. But the pressure of big $$ gas hit and it is now just a house that is dwarfed by the Target store which is within spitting distance. A shame.

We found the staff very friendly, they even invited our dogs on the tour. They were very knowledgeable, and the house and farm was very interesting. Well worth it, gift shop was also nice.

The tour was 10-15 mins which is good, the tour guide was very interesting and I learn't a bunch. The schoolhouse also was interesting and the scooter track/path was fun...
