Frequently Asked Questions
What else is there to do in the area?
Check out our extensive map for some of our favorite places and activities!
There are tons of great things to see and do while you are in the Northeast Kingdom! Check out Hill Farmstead Brewery, one of the top-rated breweries in the world, just a few minutes drive away. The Greensboro-Hardwick corridor is at the heart of the Northeast Kingdom local-food movement with lots of farms producing veggies and any number of finished food products such as cheese, tofu, spirits (Caledonia Spirits), and more. There is plentiful nearby hiking and outdoor activities including extensive mountain biking trails (Craftsbury Outdoor Center)(Kingdom Trails) and swimming/kayaking on pristine glacial lakes. There is no shortage of fun to be had. We’ve been living here our whole lives and are still discovering new places all the time.
Wedding planning and Day-of coordination?
Basic on-site vendor coordination is included. It is highly recommend that a day of coordinator or wedding planner be involved to take the stress out of the day. We are happy to work with your wedding planner, refer you to some wedding planners if you do not have one already, or can do this ourself for 15% of the additional services provided.
Would we need to provide our own liability insurance?
No, this is not necessary, we have our own liability insurance.
If we were to bring our own bartender and alcohol, are there any restrictions we should be aware of?
You are welcome to supply your own alcohol with a one day event insurance policy. We require certified insured bartenders with off-premise license and are happy to help you secure your bartending service. Depending on your bar tending needs additional bartenders and time may be required.
If the ceremony is supposed to be outside and it rains, is there a back-up indoor space you use?
Yes the barn has an absolutely beautiful interior and ample space suitable for ceremonies, many couples have chosen to do this regardless of the weather.
Is there a curfew? How late could we play music?
Amplified music can go until 11 PM, guests need to leave by midnight.
Would we be able to use our own decorations for the barn?
You are more than welcome to use your own decorations if more elaborate ideas are in play we are also happy do discuss these on an individual basis.
Is the barn temperature controlled?
Not exactly, it is not insulated and we therefore hold events in the warmer months. The barn cupolas, doors, and windows are open most of the summer providing passive cooling. It is rarely, if ever, too hot in the barn. Occasionally when it is cool, we use propane patio heaters (at an additional charge).
Is there nearby lodging available for guests that you typically recommend?
Is there a shuttle service to bring people from their accommodations to the farm?
Yes. There are a number of local shuttle service providers we can recommend that provide pickup and drop-off services.
