In the heart of Lancaster’s Amish Country, surrounded by Amish farms between the villages of Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse, is the Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy Farm.
For over 50 years, we've been taking visitors on a journey to learn about Amish culture with our interpretive and acclaimed tours. For a look at Amish home life, education and church, join us for our Amish House & One-Room School tour, the only officially designated "Heritage Site" Amish house in Lancaster County.
The spectacular cinematic experience of "Jacob's Choice" in our theater uses five screens, custom-designed special effects, 100,000 watts of theatrical lighting, unforgettable "ghost" effects and more to bring the history of the Amish, and their present-day struggles, to life.
Since 1959, the cornerstone of the Amish Experience has been our Farmlands tour. Taking you deep into the heartlands of the oldest Amish community in the world, you'll discover the living, breathing Amish culture. Witness spectacular panoramas from the comfort of our air-conditioned, 14-passenger shuttle, as your knowledgeable local guide answers your questions and points out sights along the way.
Our acclaimed Visit-In-Person Tour provides maximum interaction with members of the Amish community, as you visit three Amish stops. Stop number one is an Amish farm, where you will learn about the milking process firsthand! Next, visit an Amish business to get a "behind-the-scenes" tour and usually a demonstration. The three hour tour ends with an Amish home visit for an informal chat...it comes as no surprise that strangers soon become friends!
