Kreider Farms, Lancaster County’s favorite producer of udderly delicious milk and bottled drinks, ice cream, premium eggs, and more, is proud to announce its inclusion in Destinations magazine’s 2018 Best of the Best listings (Adventure category) for its signature Farm Tour. Destinations is a publication of the American Bus Association (ABA), the most respected voice in the motorcoach travel industry.
“It is an exciting honor to be included in this showcase of the best group tour destinations in the U.S. and Canada,” shared Debora Lobb, Farm Tour Director for Kreider Farms. “People love our guided trolley and bus tours, which include a unique trip through our maternity barn as many people’s favorite part. We have about 5-7 calf births per day, so the chances of seeing a calf being born are high,” Lobb added. “Our 90-minute tour is a great activity for students, seniors, and other groups. We can take 29 people at a time in the trolley, plus 29 people on the bus, or you can also take a personal tour in your own vehicle with our guide via Bluetooth or your cell phone.”
Destinations agreed that the maternity barn was a highlight of the Kreider Farms Tour. They also note the cow-milking simulator and 100-foot silo observation tower as other unique features that make the Farm Tour a must-do for visitors to Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Tours are available year-round, though the spring/summer season is the busiest, with multiple bus and trolley departures per day.
Best of the Best award winners are chosen by ABA Media’s creative team each May to recognize outstanding travel industry members who go above and beyond for the group tour industry. All winners are featured in the September/October issue of Destinations, and special promotion throughout the year by ABA, including at the organization’s Annual Meeting & Marketplace, is another benefit of being selected.
