    Visit: The Amish Experience, 3121 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bird in Hand, PA 17505-9630

    The Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy Farm SuperSaver package is the best way to see it all. It also includes a free buggy ride voucher to enhance your visit! 

    Amish Farmlands Tour

    Since 1959, the cornerstone of “The Amish Experience” has been the Amish Farmlands Tour, taking you deep into the heart of the oldest Amish community in the world. Our certified Amish Country Tour guide answers your questions while calling your attention to the fascinating sights we may observe along the way: spring plowing, children playing, making hay.

    When you join us on one of our air-conditioned 14-passenger mini-shuttles, you’ll experience a sense of the work and family ethics that continue to mark the Amish way of life. Witness spectacular panoramas of patchwork farms unparalleled in their beauty, still farmed with horses and mules. Roadside stands, bake shops, or a visit to a craft or quilt shop on an Amish farm are among the unique happenings that may be enjoyed on your 90-minute Farmlands tour.

    Amish Experience Theater

    “Compelling” best describes the emotional story of “Jacob’s Choice,” told through the everyday lives of the Fishers, an Old Order Amish family of today. Witness Jacob’s struggle in choosing the Amish church, or leaving behind family and community for the allure of the modern world. Experience the horrendous religious persecution of their forefathers and take part in the perilous voyage to America, all magically heightened by wind, rain, smoke, fire, ghostly and other live effects that thrill the senses.

    Jacob’s challenges with faith, tradition, and loved ones in a fast-changing world is a story that touches each of us in a poignant and memorable way. More than any other Amish attraction, “Jacob’s Choice” will leave you with an understanding of what it means to be Amish, and the ties that continue to bind the community together.

    Amish House and One-Room School

    The Amish Country Homestead is a reflection of our commitment to accurately and sensitively portray the Old Order Amish as they live and work in today’s world. The Homestead is the home of the fictional Amish family of Daniel and Lizzie Fisher, whom you have gotten to know in the Theater’s “Jacob’s Choice.”

    Inside the Homestead, we learn of Amish traditions and practices, plain clothing and life without electricity. The One-Room School is attached to the house and filled with authentic desks and furnishings from an actual Amish school. Here, you’ll learn the tradition of teaching eight grades in one room. From the pantry full of freshly canned vegetables to the family’s plain clothes; from propane-powered lamps to air-compressor driven appliances- the Fisher Family Homestead provides insights into the complex riddles of a culture so very different from our own.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Amish Experience. Each aspect of our activities was informative and helpful in understanding the Amish way of life. Since the Amish are in our culture but not part of it, there is an immense curiosity about how, why, what, etc. The Amish

    We met some friends at the attraction at the recommendation of the friends brother. We had a great bus tour and learned a lot about Amish Life and some of the differences between them and Mennonites. After that we saw a movie about making the choice to join the church in one's

    We booked this SuperSaver Package just for the quick experience and we ended up getting schooled on the whole experience and it was well worth every penny. We also took in a short movie called, "Jacob's Choice" and it's a must see. Our tour guide throughout the whole excursion
