As a family owned and operated pick-your-own berry farm set against picturesque Lake Winnisquam, this farm really is the best of two worlds. Couples and guests will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of a working farm while soaking in all the beauty of crystal blue water and mountain views of the Presidential, Sandwich, Ossipee and Belknap Mountain ranges. This venue is in the midst of the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire.
Looking for an outdoors affair? Start with an outdoors ceremony with water views, followed by a cocktail hour with lawn games and music, and then slip away across the rock-faced jetty for one-of-a-kind portraits as the sun sets. Rejoin your guests for a tented reception on the farm's side lawn with farm to table catering options or your own cuisine of choice.
