The Old Order Amish

The Old Order Amish

Your students will find the comparison between their twenty-first century lives and the simple lifestyle of the Old Order Amish to be truly fascinating. The visit begins with the high-tech multimedia presentation of JACOB'S CHOICE in which the story of an Amish family is told through the eyes of a child.

The tour continues with a visit to a replica of an Amish Farm House, where students will learn about the daily living conditions of an Old Order Amish family. A typical "Penn Dutch" meal is served "family style" at the Plain and Fancy farm restaurant.

After lunch our local guide will lead your students through the countryside where they can view the many Amish farms and schoolhouses which dot the landscape. The visit ends with a stop for "homemade" ice cream before departing for home.
