The Farmhouse offers a range of excellent dishes and menus to delight and thrill couples.

This venue has a history richly entwined with the values of family and community. Built in the early 1800s and purchased by Levi and Kate Murray in 1917, the property was formerly a family home and working farm. Parts of the land were converted to provide accommodation to locals who worked at the nearby racetracks. Extensions were added to the building to accommodate increasing requests from the community to host meetings and events. In 1993, the space was officially converted to a venue and is currently managed by Levi and Kate’s great-granddaughters.

My husband and I had our wedding at the farmhouse last weekend (sept 9) and I can’t even begin to describe how amazing this venue is. We had Laura as our coordinator and she went above and beyond to make our day perfect. She was very quick to respond to emails and answered any questions I had. I fell in the love with the venue last October when I went for an open house. The packages were great, the decor was very pretty and the grounds are beautiful. We were having our ceremony there as well. The outdoor ceremony area is beautiful and I was so excited to have it there. However it ended up pouring all day long. I was nervous with how an indoor ceremony would play out because that was never how I had pictured it and it was honestly so much better than I could’ve imagined. I’m the type of person who loves to decorate and I had a lot of decorations for the reception, but Laura made everything look so perfect. All of the staff made sure my husband and I were taken care of throughout the reception by making sure we had food and making sure we had something to drink throughout the evening. We had just under 100 people and it did not feel overly crowded because things were spaced out well. We also had the open photo booth and our guests loved using it. Our guests also raved about the food and so many of them told us it was the best wedding and nicest venue they had ever been to. We honestly could not be more pleased with how our day went and we are so happy we chose the farmhouse!Sent on 09/17/2018

October Wedding 2019
The Farmhouse went above and beyond all of our expectations! We had a mid-October wedding at the Farmhouse, and can't recommend this venue enough. Katie was extremely helpful, responsive, and eager to help. She gave us a ton of suggestions, and still let us customize our wedding to exactly how we wanted it. She was extremely helpful during our wedding day and sequenced the day exactly how we wanted it - my wife and I barely had to think of anything on our day.
We went to the food tasting, which was very well organized and allowed us to make informed decisions for our menu. The food was amazing! We had the salmon and London broil; and we got so many compliments from all our guests on how tender and delicious both were. We had about 120 guests, and the layout and spacing of the venue was absolutely perfect.
We would very highly recommend this venue to everyone! Not one single thing went wrong - this speaks highly to the experience and dedication of all those who work at the Farmhouse.Sent on 10/26/2019
When you hear a name over and over and great things are being said, you pay attention! The Farmhouse has been the choice for many of the couples I've married, as well as those coming up in the future! As a wedding officiant from Newark, Delaware, serving the Tri-State area, The Farmhouse provides couples with the beauty and charm that they desire on the biggest day of their life! They hit the mark every time --I highly recommend The Farmhouse to those who love the country-like experience with all the elegant trimmings.
Wired Up Entertainment loves djing at the historical Farmhouse venue. The grounds and gardens are absolutely beautiful and the gourmet food is wonderful. We can't wait to perform at 10+ weddings in this beautiful and intimate venue this year.
We love the elegance and the charm of the Farmhouse. The staff there are very friendly, easy to work with, and they care very much about their customers. The food is also great!!!
