Green Meadows Farm is a 124-acre historical farm in the rolling hills of the greater Washington, D.C. metro area and the southern part of Frederick County, Maryland. This unique Agri-tourism venue features nearly 300 farm animals as a picturesque backdrop or included as part of a couples special day. Couples may be married in the majestic 100+ year old hay barn or in the shadows of the stately white Manor house built circa 1790. Then, move to the rustic modern barn called “The Stables” as the perfect location for reception. Green Meadows Farm is 10 minutes south of Frederick, MD and 50 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.
Facilities and Capacity
Green Meadows Farm is that one-of-a-kind venue every couple dreams of. The view of the rolling pastures with many types of animals, historic Manor house, old barns and majestic trees, will have guests in awe. The day begins with a ceremony in the Hay Mow as guests are seated on covered bales of hay for a unique, yet charming touch of country. The celebration continues as the party transitions to The Stables. The tall cathedral ceiling overhead is supported with beams of dark wood decorated with white lights and paper lanterns. The Stable’s capacity of 200 is perfect for year-round events. Summer wedding guests will appreciate the country breeze created by the opening of the Stable’s large double doors. Yet, the heated Stables will keep everyone warm during the chillier winter months. Hosting a wedding at Green Meadows Farm is the chance to stand-out from the ordinary and step into the extraordinary for a wedding that guests will be talking about for years.
Any wedding event can be hosted at this farm. Bridal showers, ceremonies, elopements, engagement parties, receptions and rehearsal dinners are all welcome events. Services for these wedding events include:

Best venue ever!
Working with Green Meadows for our wedding was beyond amazing. Ken and his staff at the farm are so great to work with, it’s truly like planning your wedding with family. The farm is BREATHTAKING, the petting zoo during cocktail hour was a huge hit, everything was better than we ever could have imagined. We received so many compliments on how it was one of the best weddings people had gone to and I know that most of that was all due to this amazing venue! The best part is, my husband and I can come back and visit the petting zoo in years to come and even bring our future babies to see where we got married :)Sent on 08/31/2019

Perfect venue--with option to stay on-site
I'm giving myself a high-five over picking this wedding venue--things could not have been better! Ken recently opened up an Airbnb ON-SITE, meaning that I was steps away from the ceremony site and reception site! This is even better than it sounds, because imagine waking up at 3 A.M, realizing that you actually should move your aunt's place card over to table 4 and simply being able to do it instead of adding it to your to-do list, which is already too long and confusing. In short it is a total lifesaver that becomes more and more beautiful the closer you are to event time (funny how so many details occur to you on the day of and day before the wedding) and don't have to drive to the venue each time you realize you need to add or change something.
As the other reviews suggest, the farm itself is outstanding. You will not be able to find a place that takes better care of its animals (they are given so much space to roam and their pens are always spotless--a true feat in the petting farm industry). The farm has so much natural beauty that will charm the eyebrows off of your guests--we keep getting compliments on how beautiful everything was (little did the guests know, the Hay Mow and event barn are already beautifully decorated and need no additions, however, feel free to add whatever decor you please). It was a joy for kids and adults alike, who ever able to chat outside, pet the animals, and watch the fireflies light up. Leading up to the wedding, I never felt alone--Ken and Krissy were always so easy to reach (often, I could just walk outside and find Krissy if I had a question, and she would immediately help me). They made me feel so comfortable and taken care of! You'd be hard-pressed to find a better wedding venue: amazing support, flexibility, kindness, incredibly beautiful event spaces, and the ability to stay on-site--what more could you ask for? Your guests will thank you :)Sent on 06/25/2019

We could not have asked for a better wedding venue. Ken and Gail, the owners, are wonderful people, as well as their staff who helped make our day special. They were responsive to my concerns and made me feel like it was okay to ask questions and come visit to help me visualize using the reception space. We got multiple compliments from our guests about the petting zoo cocktail hour, as well as the accessibility of the venue and the warmth of the reception space. I cannot recommend Green Meadows enough!Sent on 05/28/2019
