Nestled in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, in Paradise Township, Lancaster County, Verdant View Farm is a 115-acre dairy and crop farm operated by the Ranck family since 1916. Verdant View Farm is one of the longest operating Farm Stays in the lower Susquehanna Valley, and has been receiving guests since 1967.
Experience rural life on the farm -- hand milk a cow, bottle feed a calf, go inside a chicken coop, fish in the farm pond, take a wagon ride, and interact with farm animals. Children and adults will enjoy interacting with the farm animals, including kittens, Scooby the farm dog, pygmy goats, sheep, bunnies, and exotic hens that lay white, brown, and green-shelled eggs, and a rooster who crows in the morning.
Join the family for a full farm breakfast each morning at 08:30 (not Sundays), which features homegrown and locally-sourced meats, eggs, raw milk, seasonal fruit, breads, and desserts.
Located a mile east of Strasburg in the township of Paradise, Verdant View Farm is located near most Amish country attractions (in fact, many of our neighbors are Amish), and the farm is very close to the train attractions of Strasburg. The Strasburg Railroad runs in the daytime right through the field behind the farmhouse.
