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.

The perfect venue!
We cannot recommend the Zukas Hilltop Barn highly enough!! The venue is absolutely gorgeous, with views over nearby hills, two gazebos, a pond, and a beautifully manicured garden (this year it had a wall of sunflowers, too.) The food is great (that cake!) and uses some of the produce that they grow there in the garden. Best of all, the coordinator Alyson is amazing—completely organized, answers emails quickly, and so friendly and calm that she puts you at ease immediately. It made the wedding day itself as stress-free as possible, not to mention the months of planning. They also have great recommendations for local vendors, meaning that you get wonderful and very professional people who have often worked at Zukas many times before and are well coordinated with each other. Altogether a great experience—we would do it again in a heartbeat!Sent on 09/08/2019

My husband and I got married the first week in August and I am still in awe at how PERFECT our wedding was. Alyson made the year leading up and especially the day of the wedding run so smoothly. She really is amazing at her job! The food and drinks were great, there's so many good places for pictures, and Zukas has the rustic/outdoorsy feel we wanted. Our guests are still raving about how beautiful Zukas was and how much of a good time they had!Sent on 09/23/2019
The bridesmaids and I got ready in the bridal suite and got our hair and makeup done in the Zukas Spa by Kristen Hickman and her hair and makeup artists. We were all so happy with our choice and loved being right at the venue while we got ready!
We wouldn't change anything about Zukas and our wedding!
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.
