The Amish Farm and House

The Amish Farm and House Since 1955, the Amish Farm and House has been Lancaster’s authentic Amish sightseeing and educational experience. Open daily, year-round.
Tour our historic 1805 farmhouse that was last occupied by an Amish family. Your knowledgeable guide will explain the Amish history, traditions, clothing, modern customs and culture as you see the different rooms of the house. Explore our 15-acre farm which was deeded from William Penn in 1715. Our farm features historic barns, out buildings, an original blacksmith shop, a wide variety of farm animals, an original covered bridge, water wheels, the Willow Lane One-Room Schoolhouse and so much more! Take a step further...take the Countryside Bus Tour! Our Countryside tour gives you an up-close look at the Amish lifestyle. Join us as we wander down less-traveled roads through the picturesque countryside. Keep your camera ready as you see schoolhouses, barns, buggies, farms and historic homes. Enjoy a visit to a quaint Amish shop (when available). Since opening in 1955, we have strived for authenticity, accuracy, and most importantly, respect when interpreting the Amish lifestyle. We were the first tourist attraction in Lancaster County. While many have tried to copy, no one can come close. Generations have visited...now it's YOUR turn!

The Amish Farm and House

Update: AMANDA IS HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL! 💓💓💓 She came home yesterday afternoon and we were able to visit with her today. She’s doing as good as expected, but is still in a good bit pain. She is in a wheelchair, and has casts on her legs and braces around her back and neck.

She loved reading all your cards. She wanted to open them all right away but said, “maybe I should save some for later... I’m going to be bored for a while.” She received cards from 17 states!

The entire King family wants to extend another thank you to all who have donated, wished Amanda well, and sent cards. They feel your love.

We also saw an increase of customers at the BBQ Barn, so many of you came out to buy chicken and support the King family. The BBQ Barn is located on our property, but there is a window for outside customers. They are currently open on Fridays Saturdays. Menu: https://the-bbq-barn.business.site/

We have some sad news to share.

The King family, who owns the BBQ Barn on our farm, was involved in a tragic buggy accident Sunday morning. Their three oldest children, Melvin, Levi, and Amanda were hit head-on by a pick-up truck while heading to church. Mom and Dad and their other three other children were in a separate buggy 10 minutes ahead of them.

Levi, the younger boy miraculously escaped with only bumps and bruises. Melvin, who was driving the buggy, has some head trauma and bruises.

But Amanda, the oldest daughter, suffered the full brunt of the collision. She was taken to Hershey Medical center with serious head trauma and is not conscious at this time. We now know she broke both of her legs, a bone in her neck and back, and is in the ICU. Please pray for her recovery.

This family has been a part of our family for the past 3 years. We have watched these children grow and have become very close to them over the years. Liz just gave birth to baby Marvin only a few months ago. The challenges this family faces with taking care of their young children, transportation to and from the hospital and post-hospital care for Amanda will be daunting.

If you ever ordered anything from the BBQ Barn, you most likely were served by Amanda. She is the sweetest, kindest young lady. She loves horses and scrapbooking. She always has a smile on her face. She is a little shy but once she gets to know you, she opens up and loves to talk. As you can see from the note, Amanda was really looking forward to serving food at the BBQ Barn for our opening weekend.

If you cannot donate, please send get well cards for Amanda and her family. Family members: David (father), Liz (mother), Melvin (14), Amanda (12), Levi (11), Christopher (6), Steven Lee (2), Marvin (newborn)

The Amish community is resilient.

As many of you know, the King family was involved in a tragic buggy accident this past Sunday. This accident has put their oldest daughter, Amanda, in the ICU for 6 days.

The BBQ Barn is a family-run business, and with the family hurt and grieving, the future of the BBQ Barn was uncertain.

But the Amish community showed up. Friends, family, and community members all came together to make sure the BBQ Barn was up and running today. They plan to take over the barn until David, Liz, and the children are all ready to move forward.

Next time you're in the area, stop over for some chicken! Or a soft pretzel, or an ice cream cone, or a whoopie pie. Menu + prices: https://the-bbq-barn.business.site/?m=true

This family started planting early this morning and just about finished the field by late afternoon. Tobacco planting is very tedious because each plant must be planted by hand. 👏🏻

And yes, the Amish are allowed to plant and sell tobacco. It is not against their religion/beliefs.

Updates on the King Family:

We were able to take Liz (mom) to visit Amanda in the ICU. Liz said it was very hard to see Amanda is such pain, but she is so thankful she is alive and on the road to recovery. Amanda had surgery on her broken legs yesterday. She is going for scans to see what is broken in her neck/back.

Amanda, even though in tremendous pain, is in good spirits. She is anxious to come home and start scrapbooking with all her extra time. She's such a mature, positive girl.

Melvin and Levi are home from the hospital and doing great! They were both THRILLED to read all your comments. The boys were amazed that people all over the world were praying for them. (Shoutout to those who commented from Australia and Germany. We had to pull out the map to show them where you lived!)

David and Liz wanted to extend their deepest thank you to everyone who donated. They were both so overcome with emotion, and could not believe the love and support you all have shown them.

We are still collecting donations for their family, use the GoFundMe link at the bottom.

There's been another goat birth on our farm! This time it was Ellie's turn. She had twins, Echo and Enzo.

This birth is very special because Ellie was rejected by her mother at birth. She was bottle-fed and raised by Mikayla. Now that Ellie has had children of her own, Mikayla gets to be a grandma. Or as we call her, GoatMa! Yay for more healthy babies!

Love getting to know about the Amish and their ways....they seem to be a gentle and loving people....Love reading their books too...Thanks
My family and I LOVE the Amish country because of the peace and serenity of the area, the beautiful landscapes, the simplicity of life, the warmth of the Amish and local people, and the delicious food. My family visited the Amish country when my father-in-law was visiting from Egypt. He owns a farm in Egypt and was so fascinated by the farmland. We loved learning about the Amish people and enjoyed chatting with them. We even bought 2 dozen eggs on a whim when we drove by an Amish home with a sign saying “brown eggs 4 sale”! The Amish country is a perfect getaway to escape from the stresses and humdrum of everyday life. Hoping to return again one day soon and enjoy the beauty and bounties of the Amish Country.
Visited the farm and my wife got friendly with the critters.😀
My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting this past Saturday. Everyone was so wonderfully friendly, asking where we were from and how they could help us. We took the bus tour and were certainly thrilled with the ride and the sites but especially with our guide Debi who was awesome. So friendly and so knowledgeable. We were a little disappointed with the house tour as that guide tended to be too soft spoken at times and hard to hear. We didn't waste a minute. We took the buggy ride around the farm and walked around it as well as visiting the one room school house. Had some amazing pulled pork sandwiches at the BBQ stand. So happy that we spent the day here. Educational and fun.
Hello The Amish Farm and House, My name is Martin and I am wondering you can get this to a person who makes decisions on products to review. We are an established 20 year old company out of Canada. About 12 years ago we used to sell a product in the Ohio Amish area that let the body produce it's own Glutathione in the body. So that the body can heal itself. We had over 300 customers in that community. The local delivery point was Raber's Blacksmith Shop in Wooster, Ohio. Maynard & Fern Begly was the one who gave me the blessing to try and find Raber's Blacksmith shop again. Here is a description of our products. Please let me know if you are interested and I can get you the weblink to review these life changing natural products.. These are all natural products. Blessings, Martin Narveson. Overview; What if I had a rare product that is 6 times more potent then mothers breast milk in letting the body produce it’s own abundant Glutathione? (It is in a powder form.) Glutathione is the World's Master Anti-Oxidant, that means no other substance is more powerful for your body besides water & air. Great detox & healing. Do you know what Glutathione does for a body? It lets the body heal itself from any degenerative disease. We guarantee results. This can also be used topically for skin conditions and younger looking face and skin in just 30 days. Use it in your eyes to combat Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Cataracts, etc. Great for athletes as it gives a body 13% more endurance naturally and it neutralizes lactic acid and accelerates the repair of damaged muscles. Again this is a very rare precursor to a body's own Glutathione production. The 2nd nutraceutical product hydrates your cells up to 10 times more than regular water. What does 10x's more hydration do for your cells and body? An Amazing detox. This is also is very rare. Use it in conjunction with the Glutathione precursor and you have one powerful team working with your body. This patented therapy regiment now lets the body detox efficiently and then lets your own body’s cells be repaired so now your cells repair the tissues of your body and then your tissues repair your organs so your body now works like a smooth running machine, the way God intended it to be. Let me know if you would like to review this rare information. We have been out of the USA since 2008 and now coming back, We are looking to bring this back into the Amish community once again. Would these be something of value to you right now? Blessings, Martin Narveson Phone: 951-402-8060
I, am a farmer to Can we spleep on you farm Diana from Canada ?

Everybody is nice. Everybody needs to try Goat Yoga at least once if not a hundred times! Family friendly. Great BBQ & ice cream.

Thank you for the invitation. I love your page and I am in love with your pictures. I live about ten minutes from New Wilmington, PA so I am very familiar with the Amish, I see them all the time and talk to them a lot when shopping and before my Dr. unexpectedly passed away I saw and talked to them a lot in his office. He had a lot for patients. I had the opportunity to help an older gentleman and his wife one day, I was coming out of Dollar General and right before the drive to turn in their buggy rolled over in the ditch and broke a wheel. Her glasses cut her forehead bad and they were really shaken up. After they took their buggy across the street for the night, etc. I took them home. They were the sweetest couple. Again, thanks for inviting me to your page.
