Home, Farm and School – The only designated Heritage Tour in Lancaster County and a tour your students will long remember!
Our widely acclaimed retail version of the VIP Tour is limited to 14 students on a small mini-coach. Requests for a group version led to this new tour, affording the opportunity to meet and talk one-on-one with three different members of the Amish community… truly a very special experience available only through us.
A certified Amish Country Tour guide steps onto your bus to lead your students on this adventure to another culture.
Stop #1: On the Farm
An Amish dairy farmer’s presentation is always a highlight, as we visit an authentic, working Amish family farm. Discover how an Amish farm operates without electricity and be surprised to learn Amish cows aren’t milked by hand!
Stop #2: At Home
This exclusive in home presentation provides students the unique opportunity to meet and interact with one of our Amish friends. Your Amish host will entertain any and all questions students may have about Amish life.
Stop #3: School Days
Since we can’t visit a real Amish school, we do the next best thing… we visit with a real Amish schoolteacher. Your group will meet her in the schoolroom in the Amish Country Homestead for a talk about daily life for an Amish child at school, and what it’s like teaching eight grades in one room! In most cases, the teacher will be happy to join you for an optional dinner at Plain & Fancy Farm as well.
Stop #4: Family-Style Dinner (optional)
After meeting the Amish, we suggest you enjoy a traditional all-you-can-eat Amish feast, featuring local specialties. A special student value menu is available upon request.
Stop #5: “Jacob’s Choice” (optional)
We recommend the Amish Experience Theater presentation of “Jacob’s Choice” as the perfect introduction to your students’ VIP experience.
Allow 4-5 hours.
