A working farm for nearly three centuries, couples are treated to a rare piece of American history with a view of rolling hills, ponds, acres of planted flowers and organic vegetables. The land has been farmed by its current owners for over three generations. On the far back corner of the farm, after you drive a winding dirt road through fields of flowers, high hay grasses and vegetables, you arrive at a secluded hilltop. The hilltop is backdropped against soaring pines and old oak trees that give the couple privacy for their event on one side, and unobscured vistas America's first farmlands and the foothills of the famous Berkshires mountains. In the distance you will see the quintessential red New England barn that still houses the farms active livestock and machinery.
The farmer will cut the hilltop grasses to accommodate the style event a couple would like. The hilltop is large enough for a 150 person tented event with remaining space for a cocktail hour on the far side of the hilltop looking out over the fields and pond. Depending on time of year, the couple can expect to see acres of flowers (you could even request your own centerpieces cut from the fields you wedding looks upon!), pumpkins, peppers or squashes.
The farm location offers ample parking just at the bottom of the small hill where a reception would be. Additionally, the dirt road leads directly to the hilltop with parking space for several cars, mobile catering or other vehicles.
Mayflower Venues and the host have set some rules that you will be asked to agree to upon booking.
