The Amish Farm And House, Lancaster Reviews
It was a nice walk around. We got there a bit late to go on the talking tour. The walk around has signs to read about the different farm equipment used. It was interesting but was not enough to look at and you were done in less than 45 minutes.. I talked to the master carver for a bit. That was pleasant. Bought a heart made out of thin wood and he burned our names and wedding day on one side using a wood burning tool. It was a nice visit.
It was wonderful to see!! Once you are on the farm you don't feel like you surrounded by a big shopping center and busy street a few hundred feet away. The farm shows what most Amish and Mennonite Farms look like and the many things on the farm that kept it functioning. There are a few Amish/Mennonite workers selling food items and also to answer your questions. It is very peaceful. I found the Lime Kiln interesting.. seems to serve many purposes on the farm.
Fun for the kids, and a few items of interest for the grown up crowd. It's got a barn yard of kid friendly animals to watch, and sometimes interact with, a woodcarver who will make a small wood-burned souvenir tag for children, a house/museum, and a recreated one room school house fitted it like the Amish would in present day, and if you are lucky, there is an Amish lady usually there who was a former school teacher, and is willing to answer questions about how the Amish teach their children, and the Amish lifestyle. There are also buggy rides for $5 a person - and several animal food dispensers ($.25 for a handful) scattered around the property. Surprisingly well preserved for being next door to commercial centers, thereby offering a stark contrast to the world that the Amish forsake in order to pursue a simpler life. Walking around will probably make you hungry, and they've got a small food concession stand, but it may or may not be open. Lots of kid friendly restaurants close by, though, so you won't starve. Great place to get a broad overview of Amish life, though you'll find lots of stuff there the Amish don't use to run a farm. Worth a stop in, but if you have small children, the may ask you to skip the house tour if they are loud or unruly - helps make it easier for others to enjoy the house tour.
We took the 90 min bus tour and self tour of the farm. Overall it was a great experience and our family had a lot of fun. I rode the scooter that the Amish ride and it was a lot more interesting than I thought. The tour guide was very nice and was informative about the Amish people. She took the time to answer our questions and even stopped to take pictures of a steam train. Farm has a lot fun stuff for kids.
Typical tourist trap. But a nice one. The tour was done by a local that had grown up in the area. Very informative tour. We were there on a Saturday so a lot of young men out with their horse and buggy courting girls. After the bus tour was the tour of the farm house. Describing the use of special rooms and how the extended family would use it. Surprised to this day no grid power to the house. But most used solar and propane.
