You can really learn alot about amish culture here. How they live, work, and go to school. The farm animals are cool, and you can sit at a desk in a real amish school. Worth the time to listen and travel.

Took a group of 3rd grade girls here during a tournament in the area. The tour guide did such a great job keeping them engaged and was very patient with them. It was very interesting to both adults and kids!

What was most interesting was the background on the Amish history and way of life. The farm and house tour itself was just ok.

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.
