How can I learn more about the schoolhouse?

Our Amish schoolhouse is located on the farm property and is open for everyone to see. If you want to dive deeper into the Amish education, we offer an Enhanced Schoolhouse Presentation for groups. Your group will be seated in the classroom where they will experience a day in the life of an Amish student and learn about the differences between our lives and theirs.
