Visitors to Lancaster seek out meaningful personal contact with the Amish, an experience many hope for but often are unable to realize. Thus, we have created the V.I.P. (Visit-In-Person) Tour, an extraordinary opportunity to visit personally with our Amish neighbors. Imagine visiting three Amish properties where our longstanding relationships allow you to become their guests during your stay. This tour is limited to 14 people to provide maximum personal contact as we visit the Amish on the farm, at work, and at home. 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. Our visit may be to a carriage maker, basket weaver, a canning kitchen, or soap maker, among others. Stop 3: Amish Home Visit The most intimate aspect of this tour is when we step inside a home for friendly conversation. 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.
