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.

Something seemed greatly amiss and far from authentic paying $20+ pp to tour a “real” Amish house and farm located directly next to a Super Target. Walked inside and it screamed of a tourist trap. Skipped it and instead drove around the area seeking Amish...More

this is part of our itinerary for our tour but is an addition so you need to pay. was a good introduction to the amish way of life but a bit overpriced I think. the tour guide was very knowledgeable.

The House Tour is more exciting than the Farm Tour. I would recommend doing the Premium Tour which includes a 90-minute bus tour, the house tour and the farm tour.
