The General Potter Farm is situated on 12 acres and features a beautifully restored 2 story bank barn built in the 1830's. The main reception area holds up to 200 guests and has exposed beams, an open loft, original wide plank wood floors and whitewashed walls. A wedding ceremony can be held on-site, either on the grounds or in the lower level, which features a repointed stone wall and cozy atmosphere. The barn is heated and air-conditioned and available year-round for weddings and events. The perfect setting for a rustic wedding!

General Potter Farm is a GORGEOUS venue with so much to offer. Plus, Binky and her team were so accommodating and flexible throughout the process--they even helped with all the cleanup! I planned on having an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, but with the rain had to move everything indoors. I'm so glad I did because the venue itself is so beautiful and charming. It makes even a large wedding feel intimate and special. The venue also offered flexibility as I could choose my own vendors, but Binky did provide a list and guidance in selecting people to work with. The venue was also so much fun--we were able to set up lawn games and even have a burger toss instead of a bouquet toss :-).Sent on 05/23/2016

LOVED General Potter Farm. I worked with Lori through the planning process and Lisa was there the day of. Lori answered any and all questions I had quickly and completely. Lisa was SUPER helpful on the day of the wedding when we were running around like crazy. The venue itself is gorgeous, doesn't require a ton of decorating because it decorates itself. You do have to bring in all the vendors, which is a little overwhelming but most of the vendors in the area have worked there so that makes it really easy. Only sort of complaint is that we had to make a sign for the entrance because they have the old furniture store sign out front and some of the out of town guests got confused.Sent on 08/15/2015

Binky is wonderful to work with! She allows folks to use real candles, which was important to me, and she allows so much room for creativity and DIY decorating. You can work with other vendors that *you* chose, which gave us a lot of flexibility. We actually ended up saving money compared to using a venue where you would have to use their in-house vendors. Unlike some other barn venues we looked at, the GPF barn has heat! Originally, I was concerned about the number of bathrooms -- one men's bathroom (urinal and a toilet, sink), one woman's bathroom (a larger space, with: toilet, sink, and a table you can put toiletries on to freshen up), and a "secret" smaller bathroom (toilet and sink) past the kitchen area. We had 164 guests at our wedding and only had a true line once for the ladies room of about 4 people, right after cocktail hour before dinner, and our family can drink (after dinner we had 4 full hours of dancing and an open bar if that is any indication)! No problems with lines. Also, my grandma uses a walker, and the ladies room was large enough for her and has a bar for assistance next to the toilet.Sent on 01/06/2015
Finally, General Potter Farm simply beautiful. The farm grounds provide a rustic setting regardless of season, the basement has a gorgeous old stone wall, and the wood floors of the barn were recently refinished. My husband and I were planning our wedding from Colorado; so bringing and/or making loads of decorations was not feasible. Our hope was that by choosing a beautiful location our minimal decor would not look underwhelming. Well, that choice paid off and our wedding was simple yet stunning. And, after seeing photos of weddings held at the barn, with decoration schemes ranging from extravagant to minimalist, they all look stunning -- a testament to the barn's natural beauty.
General Potter Farms is an awesome venue for weddings & private events. I love working with Binky and her team at General Potter because they're organized and truly care about the success of their events and clients. Not to mention the amazing scenery and all options for layout of both your ceremony and reception!
General Potter Farm is one of our favorite barn venues in the area. Binki and her staff are always willing to go above and beyond to accommodate our clients. They always make us feel at home. It is simply a stunning venue!
We LOVE doing weddings at this venue. It has several lovely indoor and outdoor options for ceremony, cocktails, and reception. The beautifully historic barn is in great shape, and a perfect setting for any style wedding or event. The owner is just as wonderful a person and we enjoy working with her. If you are getting married in this area, one venue you must check out for sure.
