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.

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 in Lancaster County. Guides explain Amish riddles, one-room education, life without electricity, and Plain dress.

For over 60 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, intimate visit to 3 Amish properties --- a farm at milking time, a home “cottage industry” to hear about and observe a unique craft, and a visit to an Amish family for an informal chat right in their home.

Unrelated to the Amish, the Amish Experience Theater also hosts The Magic Lantern Show, a form of entertainment before there were movies.
