The busier our lives get, the more fascinating the Amish become. The Plain People, as they are sometimes called, enjoy full and rich lives despite lacking most of the modern conveniences we take for granted. While most of us wouldn't want to join their world forever, traveling in Amish Country gives visitors the chance to sample the simplicity and harmony of an earlier era -1525 Switzerland. About 250,000 Amish live in the United States. While traditionally they've been farmers, many now operate small businesses ranging from furniture making and baking to quilting and market gardening. This tour embeds the visitor squarely in the heart of Amish country in the picturesque Conewango Valley in New York's Southern Tier where they will have a chance to experience and purchase food, culture and crafts. So slow down and recharge while touring Amish Country with us.
