Newport Hilltop Farm and Orchard
Home to acres of flowers, a small orchard, and several horses, this farm is one of the few farms surrounding Newport Rhode Island. The owners have maintained this farm for over six generations with the newest generation still growing up on and working the farm.
For your wedding, you'll find a partitioned tree-lined field in the back of the farm complete with stone wall remnants of this farm's ancient roots. Here, you can host an intimate ceremony beneath the shade of a historic oak tree after emerging from two rows of glistening apple and pear trees forming a flowering or fruit=filled canopy. Next, walk the grounds for a free flowing cocktail hour and end the evening with an outdoor tented reception for you and your closest family and friends.
Depending on season, you might enjoy hay fields cut with a path of winding mazes, seasonal floral, or luscious lawns, and if you're lucky, catch a glimpse of Narragansett Bay in the distance.
