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 oldest Farm B&Bs 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, fish in the farm pond, feed the ducks, enjoy the graceful
swans, hike the "back 40." Children and adults will enjoy
playing with the farm pets, including kittens, Scooby the farm dog,
goats, bunnies, and exotic egg-laying hens with a rooster who crows
in the morning.
Join the family for a full farm breakfast each morning at 08:30
(not Sundays), which includes home-grown meat with fresh eggs, icy
cold milk, local Amish-made yogurt, pies, seasonal fruits, and breads
with home-made jam and Land O' Lakes butter.
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
right through the field behind the farmhouse.
Don Ranck and Ginny Ranck and their family and employees welcome
you to discover Lancaster County heritage in Paradise!
