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.

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

We found the Farmhouse during a last minute on a day trip to Delaware, and it was the best decision we have made as a couple. The Farmhouse went far above our expectations, and made our special day stress free from the moment we arrived. Katie did an amazing job and she had everything down to the very second. Every part of the Farmhouse did a spectacular job. The waiting staff was very polite and diligent. The food was amazing, never thought London broil could be that tender.Sent on 10/24/2019

The Farmhouse's reply:Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear how wonderful everything was. It was great working with you to make your day perfect!
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!!!
