The Vacation Home is located in the farmhouse of a 95 acre farm which was acquired in December 2005. The house is over a century old and was recently renovated to restore the hardwood floors and remove old wallpaper and repaint the entire house.  The house can can be rented as half a house or, if you have a large group, the entire house can be rented for a period of time.


The farm is used to raise replacement heifers for a dairy farm.  The calves are brought to the farm after they are weaned at about 3 - 4 months of age and stay until they are about 2 years old.  They are returned to the dairy farm to calve and start their lives as a productive milk cow.


The farm is operated by Parke & Sheila Ranck and their 26 year old son Trevor.  Their other son Tyler is married and lives near Lancaster.  He works at Hoober, Inc. in Intercourse, PA.  His wife Amanda is a Learning Support Teacher at a local elementary school.


If your visit happens to fall on a Sunday, you are welcome to worship with us at Strasburg Mennonite Church.
