    What is their contact site or info...

    How would I contact them for info when they open? Will their be a website or how would I get address and make a reservation? Would love to try this. I’m only about 1 1/2 hrs from Lancaster.

      Hi Judy, all the details I could give you are at the linked article (this is the first I’ve heard of this business as it’s still upcoming), but if I hear more I’ll post it here.

      Did not see anything about a website but there is a contact for a tour company that is going to be helping them get customers: “The Lapp family will do modest advertising for the in-home dinners and will rely heavily on word-of-mouth recommendations from guests, and help from tour guides or companies like Amish Neighbor Tours in Strasburg, run by Jeff and Ritz Heft. Ruth will respond to In-Home reservation inquiries left on her message phone, 610-593-1206 x0, in a timely fashion.”

    My downfall!

    I’ve had lunch in a couple of Amish homes + loved every bite…probably TOO much! As a diabetic I’m better off living as I do a few hours’ drive from Amish territory. If not, the baked goods especially would cause my A1C to skyrocket! I’ll admit to a lack of self control when it comes to satisfying my tastebuds + appetite. Can’t help but wonder if there are Amish tours where instead of eating, you get to work off calories by doing manual labor like the Amish do?

    I hope some of those under the radar Amish places can stay that way. I’m sure they offer a more “authentic” experience.

    Comment on I tried it (October 2nd, 2017 at 11:22)

    I tried it

    While visiting Lancaster county I tried a dinner in an Amish home. It was a strange experience. I can’t say the food was very fresh or good which surprised me. We had the green bean casserole made with canned soup and the mashed potatoes were odd, maybe fake or over mashed or both with a bright yellow butter. The strawberry pie was definitely made with gelatin with an unnatural color, and so did the canned pickled veggies seem odd, and they served us coffee mate, not cream, but they do wear polyester clothes which I find odd so I don’t know why I expected them to be more natural with ingredients, except that they lived on a farm! The stand out was the peanut spread. Yum. So good I can’t believe how unnatural the ingredients are said to be. I don’t know why it was so good, but everything else was a poor attempt at an old Betty Crocker recipe collection. The family was not exactly friendly. They would not “break bread” with us and were somewhat rude, but they charged quite a bit, that’s for sure. Why else invite English “heathens” to the home? They treated us like aliens. Still I suppose it was worthwhile, but I complained to the liaison and I doubt I’d ask him again, which kind of taught me to keep my mouth shut because although in a sense I hated the experience, it was unique in a way. The home was very modern, with fridges and stoves like most homes, and the home was very fancy with very fine cabinetry finished so smoothly I had to wonder how. The girl who hosted the event with her mother sold printed recipe books, obviously prepared on a computer, along with crafts and canned goods. They also had puppies, selling for a very high price. They began to kick us out as I was trying to finish my coffee.
