Facilities and Capacity
This scenic country venue offers quiet seclusion and natural surroundings while also being conveniently located among rolling hills in central Massachusetts. The scenery makes a stunning backdrop for a joyful wedding and vivid photography. In this venue’s peak season, from May through October, an elegant 1,400-square-foot tension tent stretches over the patio and hosts up to 250 guests. Soft light emanates from the tent ceiling onto a patterned black-and-white dance floor. Guests can sit on black wooden Chiavari chairs at round tables laden with fine china, flatware, stemware, and linens. Side enclosures and gas heaters are at the ready in case the weather proves to be inclement. Winter and Spring weddings, from November to April, can be held in the ample banquet room for up to 150 guests. Visitors will enjoy a warm welcome from experienced staff, a generous fieldstone fireplace, and oaken bar and chairs. A luxurious suite offers a get-ready space for your wedding party and overnight accommodation for the happy couple along with full on-site spa. A compact receiving space is conveniently located near the front foyer for additional preparation. All areas of the venue are wheelchair-accessible aside from the suite and spa. Parking is available on-site for the convenience of guests.
The team of professionals at Zukas Hilltop Barn will cover all of your catering and bar requirements, in addition to careful planning, setup, and cleanup of your event. To best safeguard the venue for future years, decoration must be done with care. Event rentals are available, including votive candles and mirrored centerpieces.
All cuisine is prepared on-site with the guiding principle of sourcing foodstuffs locally, with the farm itself providing herbs, berries, and vegetables. For your wedding feast, you can enjoy a champagne toast - or fountain - follower by plated dinners or hors d’oeuvres in stations and passed butler-style. Certified Angus beef is one option among many for your courses, followed by a variety of dessert options. In-house bartending offers domestic and imported beers, house wine, premium mixed drinks, top shelf drinks, as well as sodas and juices.

Best wedding decision we made.
Our entire wedding took place at Zukas from start to finish. When I say that I mean, hair and make-up (they have an on-site private spa), all photos for the day (their property is gorgeous), the wedding (we chose indoor but you can have outdoor or tented), the reception, and the wedding night (private bridal suite on-site). The staff set up and broke down the decorations, they even boxed them up for us to take home. Everything leading up to our wedding and on the day of was carried out so seamlessly by Zukas's staff. We didn't know what we were doing but we didn't have to! Alyson, Zukas's wedding coordinator was there every step of the way to ensure the entire day went off without a hitch and that it did. She was also there from day one and all throughout the planning process. Our wedding was better than I could have possibly imagined and our family and friends felt the same way. The food, cake and champagne were delicious which is often hard to come by at a venue but not here. Everyone raved. If you want the wedding of your dreams without the stress, pick Zukas. They will make your dreams come true.Sent on 12/14/2019

Beautiful Venue with such Professional and Sincerely Nice Staff!
Zukas is such a beautiful location. Gorgeous views and grounds that make for stunning photos! Alyson was absolutely incredible and extremely responsive to every question we had! She helped us make sure our day was perfect and beautiful! She executed our vision perfectly. We have been told so many times by our guests that our venue was spectacular! Our guests were highly impressed by how gorgeous the grounds are, how good the food and desserts were, and how friendly and helpful the staff was. Alyson worked so well with all of our vendors to make sure the day ran smoothly! Zukas and Alyson are both highly recommended!Sent on 12/27/2019
Love Zukas Hiltop Farm. We have been luck enough to watch this facility grow over the years. A family run business is always a great thing to see. Pete and Lynn Zukas are the best! Every time we go back we see something new. From the breathtaking views to the quality of food and service. It is a favorite of ours and many a customer that have had a wedding at Zukas.
An absolutely beautiful venue, with many, many great places for photographs. Amazingly good food and a top notch staff, round this venue up to be one of our absolute favorite places to work, and recommend.
Zukas is unmatched with their beautiful surroundings, prompt service, delicious food, and overall perfect wedding venue aura. I always look forward to working at Zukas' because I know they are going to provide the service and the backdrop for a perfect wedding video here in Central Massachusetts.
