Overview

In 1954, the play, “Plain and Fancy” was a smash hit on Broadway. The Broadway hit drew a spotlight as the play was featured around the Amish lifestyle and their home: Lancaster County. This was the tipping point of a tourist boom the progressively grew from 25,000 annual visitors to 2,000,000 by 1960. Due to the increase of tourists and invasion of privacy of the Amish, Lancaster-local Adolph Neuber believe that there should be a place to accurately learn about the Amish, while respecting their privacy. An Amish family opened their home and property to visitors for tours. Since 1955, The Amish Farm and House has been connecting the Amish community and the public. Tour Lancaster County’s Amish Farm and House. Opened nearly 60 years ago, The Amish Farm and House has hosted travelers from around the world visiting Lancaster County. Experience Lancaster County’s Premier Amish Attraction with our farm and house tours.

The bus tour made it for the family - we could have driven those same roads on our own - but without context - it would have been largely meaningless. The bus driver knew her stuff, we stopped at a small shop and bought some...More

The tour of the house was very informative and interesting. The man who ran it was really good at giving us great details and answering questions. The farm was great as well. My husband especially loved riding the s cooter!

I am sorry your tour was not what you expected. In fact, our farm museum which is comprised of an historic 1805 Amish farmhouse and a 15 acre farm, is an authentic Amish home. It would not be possible to enter a private home, as...More

Yes, I believe it is possible just to do the self-guided tour of the farmyard, without doing the guided tour of the house. However, you learn so much more information about the Amish if you do the guided house tour. You... More
