With over 500 acres, Tusculum Farm, a venue located in Laytonville, Maryland, offers an authentic farm experience for couples and their guests. This farm dates all the way back to 1747 and prides itself with having the main purpose of drawing families together and celebrating life. The farm stayed in the Freeman family for many years until they decided to welcome couples and their guests to their farm who were looking for a special site to exchange their vows. Three hundred of the acres at the farm are dedicated to growing crops so you will truly be getting to enjoy your wedding on an authentic working farm. While the Freemans have enjoyed working and creating their own memories on their farm, they are excited to welcome in each new couple and help them create their own memories and celebrate their own love story here at the farm.


Facilities and Capacity
Tusculum Farm can accommodate up to 200 of your friends and family on your wedding day. Situated throughout the farm, couples will find both indoor and outdoor options to choose from. Each setting brings with it stunning views of the farm’s gently rolling hills and ponds. The farm also provides both couples and guests with many accommodation options. One option is the Main House at Tusculum Farm, which is a gorgeous cross gable stone and frame structure. The smaller Carriage House provides a unique history and quaint setting. For a real farm feel, couples and guests can enjoy staying in “The Coop” which looks like a coop but has more of a private apartment feel. Regardless of which space you choose, you will be able to take part in many of the activities on property after the ceremony is over such as horseback riding, farm tours, the art garden, walks and hikes, and much more.

The team at Tusculum Farm takes great care to ensure each couple experiences a unique and personal wedding.

    Perfect farm venue with B&B

    We rented the entire farm for our wedding weekend and It was perfect! Our family and out of town guests stayed on site. This place is AMAZING! The staff was so great and made our weekend so easy. They take care of everything for you. The property is beautiful and has so much to offer. The haybarn is amazing and there is a movie theater below It. Breakfast was amazing each morning. We could not have picked a better venue!

    Home Away From Home

    Our wedding weekend was an absolute dream. Trish and the team made our stay so wonderful, it truly felt like a home away from home. The meals were delicious, the property was breath-taking, and it was the perfect place for all of our closest family and friends to spend time together.
