Amish Farm and House, Lancaster
(3.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Discover the Amish way of life at 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.

  • Fantastic experience! Staff was amazingly accomodating and knowledgeable from the time I called to get information until the time we left after about 3 hours of educational fun. The farm is landscaped beautifully and the barn and stalls are kept very clean. We were even offered to have a German guide to go along on our bus tour because our friends from Germany were visiting. Don't let the location ( text to Target) influence your decision to visit in any way. Totally authentic, doesn't feel ' touristy ' at all!
  • Awful house tour. Beware and don't go. Our tour guide knew nothing about the house or the Amish and gave a poor opinion of the Amish that was disrespectful. I can't see how they hire someone to give a tour that awful. Wasted an hour of my life. The reason I gave more than one star is because I bought some nice hand made items in the gift shop.
  • BEWARE … this tourist attraction (trap) is located in TARGET’s parking lot. Very few animals and no staff on hand to guide you through the so called 15 acres of farmland. My husband and children (3 & 6) were very disappointed. The video that is on the website is very deceiving where it appears that you are in the countryside, but in reality you are in the middle of a large modern shopping district. We didn’t waste our money on the bus trip or house tour.
  • The tour of this facility, once a fully functioning Amish farm, gives you a better appreciation of the joy and peace that comes from living a simpler lifestyle.
  • Everything you ever wanted to know about Amish life! The guides are very knowledgeable and will answer all your questions. They have plenty of parking, a gift shop, a playground and even goats.
