Tips for Planning Your Visit (from March 2, 2019)
For the complete Amish Experience, you need travel no further than Plain & Fancy Farm on Route 340, 1.5 miles from either Bird-in-Hand or Intercourse. (GPS: 3121 Old Philadelphia Pike, Ronks, PA).
Ticket purchase, tour check-in, and departure all take place from the theater box office in the east parking lot in front of Amish View Inn & Suites. Along with buggy rides, great shopping, and incomparable dining at the NEW Smokehouse BBQ restaurant, here you’ll find many ways to discover the world of the Amish…

Sundays are a special time.
For the Amish, it is a day of rest, worship, and visiting. Deep in the Amish Farmlands on our tours, we often see a gathering of buggies at a home for church, families traveling to and fro in their carriages, and sometimes even an afternoon game of volleyball.
What activities are open on Sunday?
Although Amish visits cannot be made on Sundays, we’ll substitute another stop featuring local crafts or foods. In addition to the Farmlands Tours, the Theater, Homestead & School and buggy rides are open Sundays in season, as is Smokehouse BBQ & Brews.
