Our guided, educational tour includes an authentic Amish house and Dawdi Haus Museum, Harness shop, Hen-house with animals and a replica one room Amish school house. We also have two Amish buggies that you can take pictures in. NO WHERE ELSE can you tour inside an Amish house and school and take pictures! Photos on this farm only. Take a tour and learn about Amish culture. So much to see and learn, it's fun for all ages! There are two Amish Welcome Centers located next to each other, but tickets to the Museum are ONLY available here! Don't forget to check out our family owned and operated Gift Shop located inside the Amish Heritage Welcome Center! We only sell quality Amish handcrafted furniture, quilts, baskets, soaps, leather goods and more! All on consignment by local Amish. No garage sale items, or flea market junk here! Group discounts and FREE Amish maps!

The Welcome Centre is quaint and not particularly touristy. I didn't buy anything but took the wagon tour for $10 as I really didn't know where to start. I enjoyed the tour and had all my questions answered. Yes the roads are rough and the farms are basic and the each farm just sells a few things but I think this is quite authentic and charming. Likewise the people are quite retiring but friendly enough. It was a fun afternoon and I was interested to see the juxtaposition of cultures.

We took the guided horse and wagon tour through the Amish countryside just outside Ethridge, TN. Our guide was very knowledgeable and considerate of Amish ways and was well liked by the Amish people we visited. We stopped at three farm locations, and were given the opportunity to visit with the owners and purchase Amish produce, baskets, furniture, candies, jellies. We enjoyed the relaxing, slow paced ride with the steady clip clopping of the horses. One of my favorite experiences of this trip south.

Nice wagon ride around the large country block, stopped and visited several Amish farms that sold home made bread, butter, hats, baskets, veggies and furniture. Bring cash, they don't acceopt credit cards and be considerate, no pictures are allowed!
You need to be able to climb the steps to get on and off the wagon and sit on a padded seat for several hours. The tour guide was very informative. $10 for adults, a great deal!
