Make the Classroom come Alive at Amish Acres!
Area Schools plan old fashioned field trips to Amish Acres for the educational and cultural experiences of the Restored Farmstead and Round Barn Theatre. School buses bring classes from near and far for seasonal tours, dinners, and Theatre for Young Audiences. Amish Acres’ greeters help organize and review itineraries with teachers during their visit. Use the School field trip activities planner to make your visit easy and simple.
Because Amish Acres is the only Old Order Amish farm listed in the National Register of Historic Places, it is the one authentic place where teachers can bring students to learn first hand from the architecture, husbandry, farming techniques, traditional food, and historic interpretation presented on the farm by guides through planned programs. The contrast between visiting students’ lives and the ongoing lives of the Old Order Amish can be seen vividly, touched, smelled, and experienced in an educational and entertaining setting. Call Becky Cappert, 800-800-4942 ext. 213 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information and reservations.
What Schools say...
I would like to thank you so very much for your hospitality when we visited your site on Friday, October 17, 2014. Our 6th grade students at Thea Bowman Leadership Academy learned a great deal about your culture. They were very well informed and enjoyed the hands-on activities in which they participated. Our staff is equally appreciative for all your efforts to teach our children. Thank you again,
Mrs. Muniz 6th Grade Math/Social Studies Teacher

Theatre For Young Audiences

These productions consist of a 45 minute presentation followed by a ten minute Question and Answer session, providing students with a unique opportunity to play an active role in the performance. The outing can also include a farm tour, wagon ride, Little Threshers Dinner, Pancake Brunch, and shopping for all ages and more. More...
