Until 1955, the 15 acres we sit on was an actual working Amish farm. Much of the farm and its buildings remain intact. Now, you can see firsthand what an Amish farm looks like!
There are lots of activities and learning opportunities on our farm for the entire family.
Once you’ve completed your guided tour, we invite you to visit our farm at your leisure. Access to the farm is included with purchase of a tour ticket or a farm-only pass (details about our farm-only pass are below).
*Artisans and vendors may not be available every day.

It is not uncommon to see our Amish friends and neighbors working side by side with “English” (non-Amish) and The Amish Farm and House is no exception. In addition to our Amish farrier and various Amish friends who regularly sell their wares through our farm we are pleased to have various artisans that find their home at the Amish Farm and House.More About Our Resident Artisans

Grab a scavenger hunt map from the lobby area and use it to find your way through our 2-acre, quilt patterned corn maze. The corn maze is open from mid-July through October.
"The farm tour is self-guided and very interesting as well. There are plenty of animals around and the one-room school house is a cool addition to the tour. Also right nearby is a covered bridge, something fairly unique to Lancaster."
