Our Countryside tour is a wonderful scenic view of the surrounding Amish community, farms and cottage industries. A great way to meet the locals and see how they live in today’s society. Thank you for visiting.

Thanks for coming in and taking a tour! Our farm dates back to 1715, long before Target was here. It is an example of what the Amish face daily- two different worlds, living side by side.

The Amish Farm is conveniently located in Ronks near the hotels. It is a short tour/45 minutes and starts with a background briefing- informative. But it was only a house tour - disappointing. The rest was for selling Amish “stuff”.More
