Our picnics are proven morale boosters and your employees leave feeling good about their workplace. Hassle-free planning means you get to sit back and enjoy the perfect day you planned.

Tour EntryAt registration under the pavilion, your employees and their families will receive a stamp that gives them access to Amish Acres Historic Farm and Shops. For convenience, the activity locations and shops are listed on the picnic map received at registration.

The Guided House and Farm Tour is a great way to learn about Amish society. Domestic demonstrations of crafts such as quilting, broom making, and lye soap making take place along the way. Three documentary films, Genesis and Exodus, are shown in the Locke Township Meeting House throughout the day explaining the whys and ways of the Amish, one of the films, Bonnets & Britches, is especially for children.

Farm Wagon Ride
Swan Boats on the PondFarm wagon rides are available to your employees and their families throughout the day of your picnic. Rides begin at the Wagon Shed at the sound of the Dinner Bell and continues down the long lane through the picturesque woods. A sixteen foot covered farm wagon with padded seats is pulled by a vintage bright red International harvester Farmall H tractor or the team of Belgian draft horses and travels down the gravel lanes and through the woods before stoppoing around the pond for guests' exploration of the historic outbuildings. The guide points out the ice house, mint still, and maple sugar camp among others. Guests can roam freely and wait for the next wagon.
