Discover the Amish way of life at The Amish Farm and House, a 200-year-old estate providing insight into one of the country's most private communities. The working farm sits on 6 hectares (15 acres) that were part of a 1715 land grant made by William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. The farm's walking paths lead to a blacksmith's shop, milk house, school, and a covered bridge, giving you a chance to see how a real Amish farm functions on a daily basis. The historic farmhouse, built in 1805, displays furnishings of a modern Amish home.

  • A delightful and highly informative tour of the house by the lovely Glenn. We had such a nice time and could have happily spent all day listening to Glenn and chatting about the Amish way of life.

  • I've wanted to learn more and be able to see the Amish culture and this fine establishment provides a great tour of the Amish farms and an opportunity to purchase delicious food and other products made by the hardworking Amish people. If you go, try the meant tea and the soft pretzels, mouthwatering! The guides are very knowledgeable and personable. I loved touring the house and learning more about the culture and tradition. One thing to keep in mind, to be respectful to the people and to their traditions and ask the guides what's acceptable. It was a wonderful experience!
  • My family and I had a great day at the Amish Farm and House. Ticket price was affordable. Learning about the Amish lifestyle was great: Simple living, plain dress, and no technology or less technology. I am not sure they added information about Amish religion or beliefs in the farm. If not, that would be great to know. Overall, it was excellent trip. Recommended to everyone!
