A ride through rarely seen Amish farmland in northern New York, coupled with a delightful Italian farm-to-table lunch in an off-the-grid renovated barn. This tour receives very high ratings. It's a catered, guided tour valued at $55; sold at $39.
Your Ride: New Route! In the nearby foothills of the Adirondacks, you'll ride through beautiful and quaint Amish farmland. It's fascinating and very scenic. You'll see horse-drawn buggies, but no cars. Beautiful farmland, but no tractors. Gracious and simple white farmhouses, but no power lines. The Amish don't use any modern conveniences (trucks, tractors, electricity, even buttons are considered too modern). They've been relocating to the area from crowded Lancaster County in Pennsylvania, making our region even more fascinating.
We'll slowly ride past a number of their farms, being careful to respect their ways (which includes avoiding taking photos of them). After riding past many Amish farms, you'll ride to a hidden waterfall along the winding NY/VT line. It's a great photo stop.
