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.

The Dinner tour is always a treat! The dinner tour package does include a house tour and farm tour, so if you want to take advantage of those, you would need to arrive an hour 15 minutes prior to bus departure. Our house tours are...More

It is surprising to see the commercial properties that have sprung up, but the benefit is that the Amish community frequent the shops as well! The truth is, we are an historic farm that dates back to 1715 so we were here long before the...More

As this was our first time visiting Lancaster, we thought it would be best to take a guided tour by small bus. Nice, knowledgeable bus driver! He showed all of the sights. Perfect length of time. Reasonably priced! Rest rooms at one of the stops.

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
