Visitor Tips and News About Big Amos, Barefoot Amish Giant
Boy he's big!
While we visited, the area was holding a Whoopie Pie Festival. A treat local to the region, it's made from two cake like cookies, preferably chocolate, with sweet creamy filling in between. You can find other flavor combinations as well. The festival was offering folks a piece of the world's largest whoopie pie the day we were there, weighing in at over 200 pounds![Cris Swanlund, 10/20/2008]

Here is a recent picture of Amos, the barefoot Amish Man.[Ed Steinerts, 05/17/2006]
Big Amos the wisecracking Amish Guy, displaced when Zinn's Diner closed, is back in free public view. The 15-ft. tall fiberglass statue stood at Zinn's from 1969 until 2003. He's on loan to Hershey Farm Restaurant And Inn from the Heritage Center of Lancaster, where he was donated by Christian Zinn II. His cement mount and official plaque suggest he'll be at Hershey Farm for a while. Amos is freshly painted, but no more broadcast wisecracks -- he's mute. Flanked by two Amish buggies, the once boisterous farmer seems out of place in this basket-and-doily destination.[Roadsideamerica.com Team, 08/16/2005]
