I can't say enough about how great it was to have our daughter's wedding at Windy Hill Farm. It was beautiful and so relaxing. Chiara, Russell and Jane were so flexible, attentive and friendly. I can't imagine a better place to have your special occasion. And, the home made soaps they make are perfect for thank you gifts.

The Gledhills made everything so simple and stress free for us. It was absolutely amazing and blew my mind at how great they were, not to mention how reasonably their prices were. Super awesome people and outstandingly wonderful venue.

We had our wedding in early June 2017 at Windy Hill Farm and truly couldn’t be happier with our choice. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, a working sustainable farm with rolling pastures where cows and goats graze, a beautiful, recently expanded (two story!) event barn, and tasteful aesthetic choices throughout. We were one of the first non-family weddings at Windy Hill Farm, and benefited from a lot of warm, personal attention and flexibility from the Gledhills in the planning of the event. From allowing us to select a ceremony site anywhere on the farm, to offering the use of their tractor for hay-bale rides to the ceremony site (a wonderful idea of theirs that added a lot of fun), to accommodating unlimited site visits and tons of logistical emails in the weeks leading up to the wedding, the Gledhills were extremely accommodating, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. That it is a newer venue means the event did not go off totally kink-free, e.g. confusion about what time we were required to turn off the amplified music on the wedding night, but this will surely be remedied over time. The bride and groom’s wedding prep areas on the day-of are located in the Gledhills’ own home – a beautiful, tastefully appointed farmhouse on the farm-- and it’s a bit difficult at moments not to feel like you’re intruding in someone else’s personal space. This was a minor issue that could easily be improved with clear establishment of and communication about boundaries (e.g. what areas in the house are on/off limits on the wedding day and at what times). On the whole, we were overjoyed to have held our wedding at this wonderful venue, to have benefited from their attentive service throughout, and to have gotten to know these lovely people. Highly recommended!
