“This is a great hands on close up feeding the animals experience. You can drive through in the comfort of your vehicle or ride on the back of a horse drawn farm wagon, with a guide to answer any questions. I highly recommend this for anyone, and especially families.”

Travel Agency
“You’ll appreciate your visit with the Amish a lot more if you understand their heart and history. Beautiful and sobering at the same time — not suitable for young children due to some graphic depiction of the persecution that brought them here. We hope you’ll come to love and appreciate them as much as we do. ”
