The Amish Farm And House, Lancaster Reviews - Write a Review
It was such a fun day for the adults and the kids! We booked the premium package (includes bus tour, Amish house tour and free reign of the farm). First we did the bus tour (which was our favorite part) where we got to explore the Amish countryside and visit two different stops (one was an actual Amish family home and the other was a roadside shop that sold Amish goods and the most delicious soft pretzels). Next we did the house tour. This was a very interesting chance to learn about how the Amish live day to day (may be a little long for smaller children as it just consists of standing from room to room for 40 minutes). Finally we got to explore the farm which includes scooter rides, lots of animal encounters, a corn maze, a picnic pavilion (feel free to bring your own lunch), a shop with a wood whittler who was such a nice guy, a $5 Amish buggy ride, a covered bridge and a gift shop. Our whole family had such a fun day where we also got to learn so much about the Amish. We highly recommend it!
Very fun and interesting historical landmark! Loved learning about the Amish, their history, and the way they live today. We didn't get much out of the farm because of rain, but from what we saw it was great! The blacksmith was interesting. The only thing I will say I didn't like was there were a lot of the guests in the tour who were disruptive and talkative. Other than that, I really enjoyed the experience!
Love the history and culture. Tour was great. Price reasonable. Tour guides were friendly and helpful. Great day excursion and well recommended.
It was a tour on bus, also the grounds of the farm were fun for our little one. However, from what I understand it is not Amish owned, so when you are purchasing items in the store, only a few of them actually benefit the Amish community. They are clearly marked.
We, as most people, thought it strange that the Farmhouse is now in a Target parking lot, but once inside it is quickly forgotten. We enjoyed looking through the gift shop and wondering through all of the structures. At the Farmhouse, we especially loved the wood shop and talking with Chris, the woodcarver! The kids had fun riding the Amish bikes and playing with the goats!! Our bus guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He talked the entire time we drove, pointing out things we would not have noticed/known on our own. He was a wealth of information! We drove through residential areas, so we saw Amish plowing fields, kids attending school, and women gardening. We also made two stops at gift shops during the bus tour. Both sold pretzels, and they were amazing (yes, we ate pretzels at both stops!). We also purchased some pickled vegetables and pie. All four us (kids 8 and 10 included) loved the tour and learned a lot about the Amish way of life and culture. We purchased the Premium Package (bus and farm guided tours) and both were informative and worth the price. I highly recommend doing both guided. The information overlaped slightly but was not repetitive at all. We had a great time!
