Pine Plains, New York
Duck Pond Farm
This secluded farm sits on about 400 acres of rolling hills with a stunning vista of the Catskill Mountains. The anchoring duck pond along with the tree-lined roads make for timeless pictures. This property was formerly an equestrian country estate that has been converted to a regenerative agriculture focused livestock farm. There are beautiful barns, wooden fences, and depending on what time of year, baby animals roaming free in the pastures. Many locations would be ideal for a ceremony, cocktails and a tented reception. Just a little over 2 hours north of NYC and in the middle of The Hudson Valley, you and your guests will have lots of outdoor adventures to choose from.
