This is one of the best kept secrets in the Lancaster area. The place is fantastic especially when the woodcarver and blacksmith are there. It's great!!!

Vicky M: Thank you for your recent visit to Lancaster County. We're glad you enjoyed a ride on a local buggy ride. We, at the Amish Farm and House, do not offer buggy rides. While the experience of riding in a buggy is unique for some, our tour is much more educational and complete than any buggy ride in the area. Plus, we accept a wide variety of coupons...including our competitor's coupons! Next time you are in the area, please visit the Amish Farm and House. We look forward to seeing you!

“Informative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Loved to see how the Amish live and how after the tour we were able to stick around and use the grounds. The only downfall was that the tour guide though informative kind of stumble over some questions.

“No go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We thought this one sounded nice based on the reviews but when we got there and realized it was in a Target parking lot, we left. We wanted an experience in a farm setting, not while watching people load their cars with their Target purchases. We found a nice place in the countryside to visit instead.

Swimalie: We're disappointed that you jumped to a false conclusion even before visiting us! If you had questions or concerns, wouldn't it have been better to come in and ask or at least check out the property before jumping to a conclusion? Yes, since 2004, Target has been located next to us. But even though we lost the front corn and tobacco field, we still have a picturesque, historic 15 acres tucked between Target and the American Music Theater. Besides the 1805 farmhouse and the various tours, we have a wide variety of farm animals, exhibits, demonstrators, a 3-acre corn maze (in season), fields, meadows, kids activities, playground, large picnic area, walking trails, an 1855 covered bridge, a blacksmith shop and so much more. We are America's first Amish educational site and the most complete in Lancaster County! We hope to see you next time.

“Very informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Our tour bus took us in the region where the Amish live. We stopped at three different places, where Amish were selling good. All of them were so friendly. One of the places was located at a farm. I had no idea that Amish used solar energy!

After our bus tour, we visited a former farm house and the farm itself. It is now a museum where people like us can learn all about Amish people. This tour was quite informative!

Voyager101Canada: Thank you for your recent visit to the Amish Farm and House! We're glad you had the chance to take the Countryside Bus Tour and explore the back roads of Lancaster County to see the REAL Amish country! Our driver/guides certainly know the hidden gems of the area. Besides meeting real Amish and interacting with them at their roadside stands, you learn so many of the little details of the Amish culture that so often get distorted into myths. Please come back and visit us again soon! There's always something new here!
