Riders at Farm to Fork Fondo - Pennsylvania Dutch will meet the Lapp family at Gran Fondo mile 75 to sample the farm's award-winning ice cream with homemade Amish waffle cones.
Amish farmer Dave Lapp and his family raise 70 jersey cows which give rich milk for their 16 flavors of pure, delicious, homemade ice cream. When you stop at their family homestead, you will be able to view the cows being milked and pet the bottle-fed calves.
The Pennsylvania Amish of Lancaster County are America's oldest Amish settlement, where thousands still live a centuries-old "Plain" lifestyle. Arriving in Pennsylvania Dutch Country allows you to step back in time to enjoy a slower, more peaceful pace – one where the horse & buggy remains a primary form of transportation, and where windmills dot the landscape, providing power harnessed from nature. Always a vital part of Lancaster County culture, the Pennsylvania Amish are involved in agriculture as well as an array of businesses and cottage industries.
