We are having our wedding here on November 16, 2019. The venue is gorgeous and definitely worth every penny. Leslie has been very helpful with planning and has assisted me every step of the way so far. I cannot wait to have our dream wedding at the beautiful farm/barn!Sent on 01/06/2019

You must book the 1812 farm!
The 1812 Farm was the best decisions we made when we decided to get married. If I could give Sarah Maurer and her team 10 stars I would. First, the food is amazing. We had 160 guests and food was hot, delicious, they even grew some of the vegetables for our wedding at a local farm. We went with open bar and the adorable vintage bar cart was the perfect touch plus our guests loved the Maine Mule they curated for us. My family was so impressed with the service, attention to detail. The facility is 5 stars. Everything we wanted Sarah made happen. I can't recommend them enough. Worth every dime. My mom loved that every time she put her glass of wine down one of the amazing 1812 staff would deliver her a fresh one. Definitely book The 1812 Farm, you will not regret it.

The 1812 Farm's reply:Sarah and Dan - thank you! A amazing day! The staff loved working with you, your family and friends. And the donut wall was a huge success (Dan can go into the Donut wall building biz).

The Perfect Wedding Venue!
We held our wedding at the 1812 Farm in July, and could not have been happier with the experience. From our initial meeting, through the entire planning process and finally the big day, everything went just as we had envisioned. Leslie and Cynthia were incredibly professional, responsive, and attentive. The venue is beautiful (and air conditioned, which was key for our wedding as it was 100 degrees) and the food was amazing. All of our guests had an amazing time and many said it was the best wedding they had been to thanks to the job Cynthia and her staff did. We highly recommend this venue!Sent on 08/17/2019
Beautiful place for a wedding! The staff is amazing!!
Working with Sarah and the entire staff at The 1812 Farm is always a joy. They are always ready for anything and make sure that the day goes smoothly no matter what may be thrown their way. The venue itself, the barn and the grounds are meticulously upkept and have a rustic feel but include all the modern amenities. It's a wonderful place to get married and have a reception.
Fantastic venue!! Well run, great food and great location!!!
