Good food is a big part of the Amish culture, and your tour will be no different. Begin the day with a cup of coffee and fresh donut holes from our local award winning bakery. Then experience a culinary adventure in a living history setting. The most delicious part of your day will be the meal of your choice served family style in a conservative Mennonite home. From home-baked bread to Amish Tapioca pudding, the cook sees to it that you never leave hungry. See Menu Options
