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.

Great tour - loved the tour guides. Don't sit at the back of the bus - you can't see well. You can get a coupon off the website.

Great tour through the Amish farmers fields and stopped by 2 Amish stores. The tour guide told a lots of information. Visited an Amish home and farm, you can walk on the farm how long you like. Good impression of how the Amish lives.

Is it possible to do just a self guided farm tour without touring the house? If so, what is the price? I did not see it as an option on the website. Thanks!

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
