Leaving the Levi Fisher farm, traveling into southern Lancaster County, you will enjoy the sights of beautiful hills and valleys. You will see well-kept dairy farms with fields of corn and hay that seem to wrap around the hills. We will eventually come to the roads we locals call “the river hills,” which make up the topography of the lands bordering the lovely Susquehanna River. If you are paying attention, you will catch glimpses of the river. Our tour guides will provide you with many interesting historical facts about the area and, hopefully, be able to answer any questions you might have.
There are ten stops planned for the day: a produce packing house, a produce growing farm, a harness shop, an ice cream creamery, a vegetable cannery, a greenhouse and a Percheron horse farm. Our noon meal will be served by our Amish hosts in an 1825 restored grain mill.
