The Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy Farm

The Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy Farm is a complete cultural interpretive center for visitors wanting to learn about and interact with the Amish community. The Amish Experience is open every day now through November 30, 2021 (except for Thanksgiving Day.) In December 2021, the Amish Experience is open the 4th, 11th, and 18th, plus the 23rd, the 24th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th, and 31st. The Amish Experience is closed in January and February. The 2022 season will open in March.

In the Amish Experience Theater, “Jacob’s Choice” focuses on the Amish today through the eyes of the Fisher family, with historical scenes re-created with multiple screens, special effects, and ghostly images of historical figures.

Also on-site is the Amish Country Homestead & One-Room School, the only designated Lancaster County “Heritage Site” Amish house tour. Guides explain the Amish way of life, one-room education, life without electricity, and Plain dress.

For 62 years, the Amish Experience has also provided the area’s original Amish Farmlands Tour, a guided shuttle bus tour that explores Amish culture up close at work and play.

Amish V.I.P. (Visit in Person) Tour - Unique, interactive visit to 3 Amish properties --- a farm at milking time, a craftsman in their workshop to hear about and observe a unique craft, and a visit to an Amish family for an informal chat right in their home.
