BUSINESS AS USUAL

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.

Services Offered
The team at Tusculum Farm takes great care to ensure each couple experiences a unique and personal wedding. They are also there to help you plan and host other parts of your wedding such as your bridal shower, engagement party, and rehearsal dinner. Elopements can also be held on the farm. You are also welcome to choose from the following:

  • All-inclusive packages
  • Bridal suite
  • Cake
  • Outside vendors
  • Preferred vendors only
  • Set up
  • Wireless Internet

    Great staff and perfect venue!

    The perfect venue and amazing staff. Tusculum Farm was the best choice to have our wedding. The space and views were breathtaking and wonderful for taking photos that you will cherish for a lifetime. Having the space and the whole farm to yourself and your guest allows you to relax and properly enjoy your wedding weekend. The venue has everything you need and there is never a lack of things to do for fun. Trish and the entire staff were very accommodating and super helpful with the planning and resolved any unexpected issue along the way.
    We choose Tusculum Farm pre COVID but are super thankful that we decided to continue with them after pushing our wedding date back. Every step of the way Trish kept us updated with the latest rules and regulations in order to have a safety first celebration. I had three separate celebrations and Trish and the vendors had everything worked out no issues, I did not have too worry about a thing.

    I enjoyed my time and will be looking to go back for a celebration weekend in the future

    Thank you so much, Daren! You, Jessica, and your family and friends were so fantastic. We're glad we could still be a part of your special weekend even with all the unexpected changes that have happened in the last year! Your wedding was creative and unique, and really blew us away. Please come back and visit!

    Simply the best venue

    We had the best wedding here! 10/20/2020.
    This is honestly the secret venue that holds perfect weddings! In the middle of the pandemic we saw Tusculum offered a micro wedding/elopement package and immediately contacted Trish and her team. We had looked here pre-pandemic and fell in love with the gorgeous setting. It is Absolutely breathtaking in the fall! It was incredibly easy and relaxing to rent the farm for our 4 guests and zoom everyone else in for the festivities. Trish was wonderfully responsive with any questions or issues and the team was flexible. We both are essential workers and 2020 has been a year filled with a lot of stress. However, thanks to the amazing Tusculum team, both Travis and I can say our wedding was maybe the one thing in 2020 that was stress-free! It was so easy and joyous—words I’ve never heard anyone else use to describe wedding planning. It was completely “us” which is exactly how it should be! The food was amazingly delicious, the zoom ceremony was managed by our photo crew and was hitch-free, the beautiful lodging was a dream. We had a night filled with great food, Great convos, a pool and hot tub, fire pit and s’mores, and a late night showing of back to the future in the movie theater, complete with chips and guacamole! Honestly, everything was picturesque and incredible. It was exactly what we wanted our wedding to be. Our guests loved it, too! We cannot thank Trish and her team enough for helping us celebrate and plan our day, and we would be so lucky to have our party here in post-pandemic times. We have no regrets—you won’t either. Book Tusculum. Neither of us can wait to return to the beautiful countryside :)
    Thank you, Trish, for everything.
