    Amish farm vacations?

    Erik,

    This is a bit off topic, but I wonder if you know of any Amish farms that host visits or brief stays by English, for pay, of course.

    My grandparents were Mennonites, and we had Amish friends…but all when I was a child in Indiana. Now that I’m older (69) and living in Maryland, I’ve taken a new interest in the Amish world. My wife and I have great respect for the Amish way of life (as I guess most visitors to this site do) and would like to get close to it in some more personal way than through commercialized exhibits and books. We’ve driven around Lancaster County and Holmes County and chatted with a few Amish folk. We’ve read several books, Kraybill and others.

    Now we’d simply like to sit down to a meal (or six or twelve) with an Amish family and, to the extent we’re able, help with the chores on a farm for a few days.

    Maybe that’s silly. I wouldn’t know what to do if an Amish couple wanted to spend a few days at my house just to learn how my family lives.

    But there are plenty of English farms that charge money to host visitors for a few days. I thought maybe an Amish farm family might have adopted a similar system for making extra money.

    Do you know of any? If so, could you pass along names and addresses?

    Cheers,
    Boyce
