Settles Hill Banquets & Events originally began life as The Tree Farm Restaurant in 1991, owned by Jock Farnsworth. Carver Laraway purchased the property, inclusive of 465 acres, in 2005 after Jock's passing. The DePasquale family took over operation of the facilities in 2008 and has been continuing to improve the property ever since. Some of these improvements include a pergola, a wraparound porch, and renovated event spaces.
