Rooted in Heritage

Experience life on a 7 generation, 200 hundred-year-old farm located in the heart of Lancaster County.  This farm was originally granted by William Penn before the Independence of our nation.  German and Scottish immigrants built our 1760s barn by hand from the stone milled here in Lancaster County.  An unknown arsonist burned the barn in 2005 and we rebuilt it with an authentic Amish barn raising.  The original homestead was a spring house located in our meadow but was later replaced with our current brick farmhouse in 1814 by our great, great, great Grandfather Jacob Franz.  His daughter married Sem Eby and started farming the land which we still own and operate.  We milked 52 cows, raised all our young stock and farmed 80 acres for 17 years until the dairy market failed us – as it has done 100s of other farmers – and we sold our prized herd to our Amish neighbor. We continue to farm the land, raise red Angus beef cattle, and enjoy our goats, chickens, beagle dogs, and horse.

 

Hands-On Help

We encourage all our guests to help us feed our animals each morning.  You may even have the opportunity to feed them all by yourselves the 2nd morning you are here.  We feed our goats and chickens and gather fresh eggs every day.  We also have great opportunities for you to have dinner with our Amish neighbors and see milking or the feeding of baby calves in person.  We are completely surrounded by farmland so go fishing in our creek, talk a walk on our 50 acres, watch the sunset from your own front porch or snuggle with our sweet tabby cat Midnight.

 

Amenities abound with Homemade breakfasts

After over 20 years of welcoming guests into our home, we continue to provide a comfortable, affordable, and relaxing atmospheres here at Eby Farm Homestead.  The rooms are simple, clean, appropriate for children with amazing views of our farm.  You will get a wonderful, from scratch full breakfast each morning featuring our fresh eggs, local Maplehof milk, Pequea Valley yogurt, and fresh fruit.  Relax on your front porch, cook in our well-stocked kitchen,  or read under the shade of a tree overlooking our grazing cattle.”
