My husband and I spend a weekend in February with Nancy and Rich, we had an amazing time. Rich showed us the goats, chickens, and Sadie the donkey, they are awesome with the animals and it’s nice to see what life on a farm is like. Nancy is a great cook and uses tons of fresh ingredients and always plenty to eat. We also got to try some food we had never had before. We can’t wait to go back and see the baby goats and take a cheese making class. They also make you feel at home.

Nancy & Richard Frush welcomed the four of us (girls weekend in PA) to their property and were most generous and engaging during our weekend stay. We rented the full apartment (the entire second floor of the old barn) which accommodated us with gorgeous woodwork, privacy, full kitchen, washing machine, dining nook, living room, bunk beds, sofa, and queen bed. The location is very special, in a sleepy town in the vicinity of Hershey, Amish country, Reading, Philly, Gettysburg, NYC, Baltimore, and Washington, DC. Nancy & Richard promote healthy living and eating, and their energy and passion for the land is boundless! We enjoyed our conversations with them and learned so much, including books to read & antiquing information. The goats provide the goat milk for the breakfast cheese and home-made kefir, and the chickens provided our eggs. The veggies come from their gardens and were roasted and served up in the healthy and tasty breakfasts. We loved our time here, and would look forward to returning soon! Thanks for everything, Nancy & Richard!!!! What a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!!

I had the fortunate opportunity of staying with Nancy and Richard at the Frush Farm Bed & Breakfast. From the moment I arrived, Nancy graciously made me feel at home. I arrived late on Christmas after a long drive from Massachusetts and a longer week of work and final exams. I was exhausted, but Nancy is the type of person who has an infectious smile and boundless positive energy. She literally radiates love and hospitality and one cannot help but marvel at how awesome of a human she is. After giving me the most welcoming tour of their beautiful home and the fascinating history behind it, she walked me to their music room, where her awesome husband, Richard, was waiting on me to join him in a jam session that turned me from a sleepy traveler to a buzzing drummer. The jam session was joined by one of the most affectionate cats you'd ever meet in your life-- Mickey Mouse, who loves sitting in laps and getting belly rubs (yes, he thinks he's a dog and you should ask Nancy to tell you the story). Of course, our discordant din came to a halt when Nancy's golden fingers started playing the piano, which you must hear in person to understand the beauty of such music. They served a breakfast that Nancy made from scratch, using eggs from her farm and ingredients that she grew herself. The dining room is beautifully decorated with artwork from Nancy and Richard's globetrotting. The kefir she served is unlike any kefir I've ever had, and yes, it is better than my mom's! Nancy and Richard named every single one of their more than 30 goats, and that should tell you everything you need to know about how much they love their animals. I've met many goats in my life, but never have I met happier goats than Coco and Junior, who gave me hugs and kisses and made Sadie, the cute donkey, really jealous. Stay with them and you’ll never want to stay anywhere else.

Exceptional price, meals you won't believe made with fresh produce from the farm, comfy beds, and so many other features you'll love. Richard and Nancy want you to feel like family, and from the minute you slip off your shoes and kick back in their beautifully renovated 200 year old farm house, you feel the care and relaxation. Great bedroom (we stayed in the Rose Room), great bathroom, a kitchen that you can use if you like, and easy access to many wonderful venues nearby. Bear in mind, while staying on a farm, the house is alongside a road. We packed ear plugs and sleep shades to make it easier to sleep, and we slept like babies. If you're a musician, pack your instruments. You'll be delighted! Chris & Nancy, Mine Hill, NJ

Frush Farm is a great place to bring your kids if they are interested in animals and you like the idea of getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The farm rooms and apartment are immaculate and very comfortable. The breakfast is all farm to table ....loved the pancakes! The tour of the barn animals and the opportunity for the kids to milk the goats and make pies was excellent! Can't wait to go back!

We took our family of 7 to experience baby goats, make pie and relax in a beautiful setting. We knew we'd get outside, do some new things (like goat milking!) and eat a delicious breakfast but we didn't know that we'd find friends. Nancy and Richard have a rhythm to life that invites you in and makes you want to stay. We are so grateful we happened upon this little gem.

The Frush Farm is a beautiful home away from home. Nancy and Richard provide a warm welcome to their historic and beautifully updated stone home, treating everyone like family. Each bedroom is very private, clean and relaxing with an attached private or shared nearby bathroom. The gourmet country style breakfasts, complete with fresh fruit pie for dessert, provide a wonderful start for each day. Best of all is the fun of experiencing the farm life - we enjoyed playing with the baby goats, watching Nancy milk the goats, helping Richard gather the chicken's eggs and marveling at the vegetables, fruits, and flowers in the garden. Of course, eating the goodies from the garden, fresh eggs and homemade goat milk kefir was an extra benefit. In the evening we relaxed by the garden watching the fireflies dance. This is a great place to stay to just relax - or as a base from which to explore the Pennsylvania country side and nearby attractions. During our short stay we enjoyed visiting the nearby historic town of Lititz - "the coolest small town in America". It's also a wonderful family B&B. Nancy and Richard enjoy and welcome children and families of all ages.

As we drove up to the beautiful 200 year old farmhouse, I was already glad my husband had found Frush Farm B&B. Upon our arrival Nancy and Richard greeted us warmly and told us to treat the house as if it were our own. We stayed in the Garden Room which was nicely appointed, had a connecting (non-shared bathroom) and a balcony overlooking the gardens and the fields. Nancy and Richard gave my son the chance to have some interactions with their animals (and a tractor ride) that I am sure he will never forget. The food was delicious, as is the homemade kefir. Nancy and Richard made us feel like family and we will surely return to the calm and beauty of their farm.
