Description

Itinerary

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Amish Experience, 3121 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bird in Hand, PA 17505, USA

Stop 1: Amish Farm

When we arrive at the farm, we enter the barn to learn about the milking process firsthand. You may be surprised to learn that the Amish do not milk cows by hand. You will also discover how milk is kept cold in the bulk tank with “Amish electricity.” Other aspects of farm life may also be included.

Stop 2: Amish “Cottage Industry”

With the price and scarcity of farmland, many Amish have started their own small enterprises, making everything from gazebos and furniture to farm equipment and quilts. These “home businesses” have become the subject of books and articles emphasizing the balance these entrepreneurs achieve between work and family. Our visit may be to a harness or carriage maker, basket weaver, greenhouse, leather or wood worker, among others. An actual demonstration is normally a part of this fascinating stop.

Stop 3: Amish Home Visit

To conclude our evening, we travel scenic backroads to a distant farm in the countryside. As we step inside the house, we find that friendly conversation awaits as we sit, chat, and visit the way the Amish do, talking informally without TVs, IPhones or computers. It comes as no surprise that strangers soon become friends.

This is our third time of doing the visit in person tour. Each visit, this is our favorite activity. On each trip, we learn something new about the Amish and the families that we’ve been able to sit down and visit, we find that they’re just as interested in us, as we are in them. I would highly recommend doing this tour. On our last trip, our adult son went on the tour with us and agreed that was his favorite thing from the trip. Even though the shows that we attended were excellent, they just don’t compare to this experience. With all of the tour guides that we’ve had were very knowledgeable, Ken is our favorite! Many of his close friends are Amish so he has first hand knowledge of how the Amish live.

What a wonderful experience! My mom and I were visiting the area and decided on the "visit in Person" tour. We loved every stop on the tour and learned so much about the Amish people ! Thank you to "Amish Experience" but even more importantly, thank you to the Amish families for sharing their time and allowing us to be a part of their busy schedule for a few moments. Oh And thanks to DeAnna!! Great tour guide. Great knowledge and true admiration and love for the Amish!

Our visit to the dairy farm was interesting and we were able to ask questions to the Amish farmer, Samuel. I wish they offered an “adults only” tour though. We had two children on our tour and it was quite distracting.
