For 62 years, the cornerstone of “The Amish Experience” has been the 90-minute guided Amish Farmlands Tour, taking you deep into the heart of the oldest Amish community in the world where you’ll marvel at some of the most beautiful farmland you’ll ever set eyes upon. These are the same fertile fields that attracted and have kept our Amish neighbors here for over 250 years. Our certified Amish Country Tours guide answers your questions while calling your attention to the fascinating sights we observe along the way… whatever happens to be going on, perhaps spring plowing, children playing at the one-room school, farmers bringing in hay by true “horse power.”
When you join us on one of our climate-controlled 14-passenger mini-bus Farmlands Tours of the out-of-the-way back roads and country lanes, 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 intrinsic 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 enjoyed on your 90-minute Farmlands excursion. On Sundays, please note our tours do run, but we cannot stop at an Amish farm during the tour.
In the post-pandemic world, we also offer a “Contactless Amish Farmlands Tour” option (which must be booked online only.) You ride in the comfort and privacy of your own car, following our expert local guide in the Amish Experience mini-bus. Easy to follow, impossible to lose, our mini-bus will lead you through the beautiful Amish farmland. By using the FM radio in your car, you’ll hear everything our guide is saying. A taped tour, or an app on your phone, can’t provide the up to date information, tailored exactly to what is going on in the area, the way a live, expert, local guide can. Don’t feel comfortable boarding our bus? Ride in your own car for one flat $60 fee, no matter how many people are (safely and legally) in your vehicle! By booking this experience you assume all liability of operating your personal vehicle. This experience must be booked at least one hour in advance with a credit card online through our website only. No tickets exchanged. Simply follow the instructions in the confirmation email for “contactless” arrival.
