Amish Acres Hosts Road Scholar Cycling Program This Week

Amish Acres is hosting its spring Road Scholar’s Bicycling through Amish Country program this week. The program, which draws riders from across the country, features four nights lodging in The Inn at Amish Acres plus twelve meals in the farm’s restaurant and along the routes. Participants ride 20 to 40 miles per day and enjoy the attractions at Amish Acres including The Round Barn Theatre’s 27th annual production of Plain and Fancy.
Riders are routed each day through Amish country in Elkhart and Marshall Counties, with stops at a one room school, country store, apple orchard, a quilting demonstration, buggy shop and Mennonite church. In addition Amish Acres provides all of the support along the planned routes including guides, rest stops, snacks, and fully supplied SAG wagon. They will learn the benefits of traditional farming without the use of modern equipment, see how traditional buggies and carriages are made, visit a traditional one-room Amish School to learn the ways of the Amish education system, and enjoy a professional live musical production in the majestic 1911 Round Barn Theatre.
