Fast Time in Slow Country…


It’s daylight saving time here in Lancaster County.  For the “English” in the community, that is.  Many of our Amish neighbors remain on “slow time.”  After all, you can’t turn milking time forward for dairy cows.  When their udders are full, they’re ready to have their delicious warm milk drawn into a pail.

A typical conversation at The Counter at the Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant & Smorgasbord gets a little more complicated.  Scheduling a meeting requires identifying whether it’s on “slow time” or “fast time.”

To our mind, it’s always “slow time” in Lancaster County.  There’s plenty of time to kick back and unwind…to sit on the lawns at our inns, motels and campground and watch buggies make their way to market…to relax by our pools and catch up on your reading…to set aside time in your day to take in the “Half-Stitched” musical at the Bird-in-Hand Stage…to treat yourself to a casual meal and enjoy Grandma Smucker’s favorite recipes at our Restaurant and at the Bird-in-Hand Bakery.

We hope you’ll be able to take time to escape your busy world and come slow down in ours.
