Overview
Discover what life is like for Pennsylvania’s Amish community on this immersive, small-group tour. Step off the typical tourist trail when you venture to a working Amish farm, where you’ll see how cows are milked and will discover other aspects of farm life. Then, visit the studio of an Amish craftsman. Finally, drop by an Amish family home, where you can have the chance to relax and converse with members of the local community.
What to Expect
Stop 1: Amish Farm

When we arrive at the farm, we enter the barn to learn about the milking process firsthand. You may be surprised to learn that the Amish do not milk cows by hand. You will also discover how milk is kept cold in the bulk tank with “Amish electricity.” Other aspects of farm life may also be included.

Stop 2: Amish “Cottage Industry”

With the price and scarcity of farmland, many Amish have started their own small enterprises, making everything from gazebos and furniture to farm equipment and quilts. These “home businesses” have become the subject of books and articles emphasizing the balance these entrepreneurs achieve between work and family. Our visit may be to a harness or carriage maker, basket weaver, greenhouse, leather or wood worker, among others. An actual demonstration is normally a part of this fascinating stop.

Stop 3: Amish Home Visit

To conclude our evening, we travel scenic backroads to a distant farm in the countryside. As we step inside the house, we find that friendly conversation awaits as we sit, chat, and visit the way the Amish do, talking informally without TVs, IPhones or computers. It comes as no surprise that strangers soon become friends.

Authentic tour and off the beaten track

In general a different tour which is designed to be personal and give you more insight into Amish lifestyle without being typical ‘touristy’

Very interesting

The movie and schoolhouse were interesting as well as educational. The bus tour was quick. I only say that because we had to wait for three ladies so it made the tour late getting started. So the driver drove very quickly throughout the Amish communities....More
