Josias River Farm is a 250-year-old Maine farm situated on 20 scenic acres of forests, open fields, pastures and an apple orchard with the Josias River running through the property. Stone walls, rail fences and perennial beds surround our original antique cape and classic New England barn in this relaxed country setting.
Because we only hosting 12 weddings a season we are able to put all our efforts into making your wedding day extra special. Each couple will have the farm for a 3-day weekend so they can spend plenty of time with their family and dearest friends.
We offer for your special event a beautiful open field perfect for any size tent, and our barn for cocktails, dancing and intimate dinners.
Your guests will enjoy wandering the private garden areas, communing with the goats, taking in the tranquility of the water garden or just easing into an Adirondack chair on the lawn.
We are located ony two miles down a country road from Ogunquit, a town that has lodging of all types, a beautiful beach and many shops and restaurants. It's a perfect option for out-of-town guests since everything is within walking distance. We are about an hour from Boston Logan and Portland International airports making it convenient for out-of-town guests.

Elegance and approachability - the best of both worlds
Josias River Farm is an absolute gem of a wedding location. It offers the perfect combination of elegance and approachability. We wanted a place where our guests could feel both right-at-home and "something special" - and Josias River Farm was just that. The property itself is immaculate, and the owners take great care to ensure every detail is accounted for and that you, as a couple, feel like the Farm is especially yours for the weekend. The flexibility the venue provides was also really important to us. We loved being able to choose our own vendors for each part of the wedding. We couldn't be happier with the choice of Josias River Farm for our special day!Sent on 11/28/2018

Wedding Weekend of our Dreams
I cannot say enough about the beautiful Josias River Farm! I feel it does need to be stated the my review is speaking mostly to the property because new owners have taken it on since our August wedding! However, in my few, brief interactions with Laura, she was friendly, responsive and so kind! The property at the farm made our wedding day exactly all that we wanted it to be. Being able to spend the whole weekend on site and create all of our memories in such a beautiful space was amazing. We hosted our rehearsal dinner inside the barn despite pouring rain, got ready in the bright and roomy side rooms of the house, said “I do” in the barn as the rain clouds hovered, dined and drank under a tent behind the vegetable garden and danced the night away in the barn! The flexibility with the weather and the endless setup options made the planning so easy. A number of our guests said “how did you find this place,” “this place is incredible,” and so on! Even family members who are not very observant spoke highly of the grounds. We LOVED every second of our wedding weekend and that was due, in large part, to having it at Josias River Farm.Sent on 11/29/2018

Barn weddings are in! Richard and Nancy have the most perfect venue to make all your wedding day dreams come true! I fell in love with their farm the second I stepped foot on it. It is filled with simple elegant rustic charm that provides a blank canvas for all the details and décor that your heart desires!Sent on 10/02/2017
Aside from the never ending aesthetics of the property, Richard and Nancy are undeniably some of the most genuine people I have ever met! They open their home for use to the wedding party for ease of getting ready for the big day or just relaxing in their beautiful den and sunroom. They are true professionals in their trade! They are easy to work with, very prompt with email responses to my never ending list of questions and quite simply, just happy to help and make sure needs are taken care of. Their pricing is fair and competitive compared to other barn venues in the surrounding areas.
Don't wait too long to book because the dates go fast!! I heard of Richard and Nancy's property by word of mouth as they don't do any additional advertising outside of having a Facebook page...but, people are talking! This is the place to get married!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Richard and Nancy for helping make our day amazing!
