No two tours are alike.
- I can do tours in the morning, afternoon, or sunset.
- Most tours are one and a half to two hours in length.
- 24-48 hour advance notice is preferred.
Each tour I give is as unique as the people who take them. Because not everybody is interested in the same things, I tailor each tour to the people, places and things that matter most to them. Below are a few theme ideas you can use to pick what interests you the most most. From there, I’ll create a tour that’s just right for you. And if you don’t have any particular interests, that’s OK too. Either way, I’ll take you on a journey to the most unique and interesting places our wonderful county has to offer (and we’ll skip all the common tourist shopping areas).
Agriculture/farming tours get into the nitty gritty of how the Amish work, farm, raise animals, make money, and do many of the daily chores we do – without all the modern conveniences.
History/culture focuses on how the Amish settled here, their history with their Mennonite neighbors, and how and why they believe and live like they do.
Shops and artisan stops are open year-round, but are particularly popular in the fall, when the leaves have changed and the majority of crop harvesting is already done. If you’re a foodie, and you love the fall, this just may be your tour.
Wine and wineries are an increasingly popular part of the area. I’ll show you our finest where you can sample the region’s best vintages.
These are just a few of the areas that folks are often interested in, but you may have others. So if you want to see how the Amish make furniture, raise a barn, or build a buggy (just to name a few), I’ll tailor your trip to satisfy whatever curiosities you might have.

There’s lots of good places to eat here in Holmes County, but imagine being the personal guests of an Amish family with a home cooked spread like no other set out before you. Homemade bread, fresh-baked pies, and centuries old family recipes along with great conversation make for a traditional Amish dinner you’ll be talking about for years. Use my online form and let me know what dates work best for you, how many will be in your group, and if you have any particular menu preferences. These dinners are really popular, and dates fill up fast, so I like to have a week’s notice. The sooner you can reserve your time, the better.
