Pennsylvania Dutch Country

You can Always tell if the Farm is Amish - No Electrical Wires Leading into the House
You can Always tell if the Farm is Amish - No Electrical Wires Leading into the House

Over the years, we’ve been to Lancaster County about a half dozen times, sometimes at Christmas, but we’ve seen this area in spring and in fall, too.  It’s a world apart, and I love the experience of seeing this very different way of life.   Take a look at these great photos and think about joining us when we go again.

 

 

You won’t starve in Pennsylvania Dutch Country!  There’s no better way to enjoy Lancaster County than by indulging in centuries-old recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation.  You’ll have the opportunity to try golden fried chicken, pot roast, baked sausage, sweet and sour ham, and real mashed potatoes.   Bakery fresh raisin bread, shoo-fly pie, and apple dumplings are a few of the other treats in store for you.  We call this trip a ten-pound tour…why?  It’s entirely possible that you will gain ten pounds if you sample everything.
