Jack is amazing!!!
I had my wedding here on Nov 3rd and honestly do not have the words to thank Jack enough. He is so welcoming and accommodating. Moments before I was set to walk down the aisle something was on my gown and he hand scrubbed it out! I can not thank him enough! The venue is beautiful inside and out and there are many great places for pictures. He opens his house to you and your wedding party to get ready. Me and my girls had a stress free fun time. Its also a benefit that you get bring in the caterers of your choice as well as plan your whole bar. The fireworks that are offered are also a great way to set your wedding apart!Sent on 11/15/2019

When you book MKJ you don't just get a venue get get Jack, who by the end, becomes another member of the family. Jack was super responsive, helpful, and just willing to do whatever needed to make sure the day went off without a hitch. He's super knowledgable about what works best for set-up and flow of celebrations. Our friends and family cannot stop raving about the time they had, the beauty of the venue, and the warmth from the wonderful owners of this venue. If you are on the fence about booking MKJ, don't be! One of the best decisions we made. Thank you MKJ and Jack!Sent on 10/29/2019

Best day ever
I can’t stress enough how wonderful this venue is, and how incredible jack is during the whole thing! He makes you feel very comfortable and stress free (what girl doesn’t want that on her big day). You don’t feel like he’s a stranger you just met, it seems like you’ve been friends for years with his personality. A BIG plus is you don’t need a wedding planner with him, in my own personal experience I think he knows more than they do and what works best for your options at the farm. Please just do yourself a favor and relax on your wedding day by booking here, you won’t regret it!Sent on 11/06/2019

In the early months of our engagement, we searched to pick to the perfect venue. We looked at three or four different barns around the area but when we went to visit MKJ Farms, we knew this was the place. I remember when we first met Jack, it was dead of winter and he stored boats and other things for the winter and walking around bending over things and trying to imagine an Wedding was a laugh all on its own. Jack took us back to his personal house and showed us pictures and made us fall in love with the barn even more than we have already did. Jack made my now husband and myself very comfortable as he walked through a typical day of a wedding. Giving details on his firework package, bar package, stating that the girls have his personal house for the day and we could use his ranger to and from the barn if needed. Jack really put our minds at rest.
During all the months leading up to the wedding we were in contact if we had any questions or last minute “o my goodness what if” Jack would respond in a friendly manner but also very professional.
Rehearsal dinner, Jack walked us through on how we should walk, where we needed to stand etc. We ordered pizza and wings that night and relaxed at his house. On the day of the wedding, a few things were missing and within matter of minutes he had it that item that was missing. We were absolutely blown away! Even the most beautiful pictures still don’t seem to do justice for how beautiful of a location it is.
People often ask us what was the best part about our wedding day and for both of us the best part about the day was that we didn’t worry about anything. Jack worked very closely with our vendors some of our vendors were ones that he recommended! It was an incredible feeling to know that we could relax and enjoy our day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves.Sent on 10/02/2019

AMAZING Picturesque Space
While, I was a guest attending a wedding this past weekend (9-7-19) at MKJ FARM, I can honestly say this was one of the most fabulous weddings that I have ever attended!! The space is unbelievable,very well decorated and by spending a few minutes with the owner, Jack, he is hands on. No detail was missed. I live in Delaware, but I immediately felt that when one of my kids gets married this would be the perfect destination wedding space. Cannot say enough good things about MKJ Farm. I would give it a gazillion thumbs up!!Sent on 09/11/2019
MKJ Farm Barn Weddings's reply:Thanks Shelly! It was great talking with you too. We would love to host your families wedding! Please keep us in mind. So glad that a guest gave us a such a nice review. Happy you enjoyed the wedding! Jack

I cannot say enough about the great experience we had at my daughters wedding reception at MKJ Farm. Jack is absolutely the best and the venue was great from the large bar with wonderful bartenders to the spacious dance floor and plenty of room for guests. Jack was available to help with anything we needed and I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who wants a great time at a wonderful place. Having full use of the house on the property to get ready is an absolute plus. It was a relaxing atmosphere and stress free for the bride and bridal party. Thank you Jack and team for making Katie and Shane’s wedding day so perfect.Sent on 09/02/2019
MKJ Farm Barn Weddings's reply:We were so glad your family chose MKJ for your daughter's wedding. We really want to make the day fun and memorable for everyone! Katie and Shane and all of the crew were fun to have here at the Farm! Thanks so much! Jack

Beautiful Views and Wonderful Owner
Jack was one of the first people I spoke to when my husband and I had started looking for our wedding venue. We were both in Ohio at the time and had limited time in New York before we moved to look at any venues. He was so accommodating from the start with helping us find time to come see the venue and we spent at least an hour after he gave us a tour just sitting and chatting with him. He’s such a kind and helpful person. He goes way above and beyond what he has to in order to help make everything run smoothly for the big day and take as much stress away from you as he can. He answered my tons of questions always in a timely manner and never made me feel like I was asking too many or being too much. I fell in love with the venue the moment I laid eyes on it. The barn is extremely spacious and the ceremony site by the pond is gorgeous. The entire property has such stunning views. Myself and all of my bridesmaids spent the morning relaxing and having fun while we got ready in his house and Jack was running around making sure everything was going okay so I wouldn’t have to worry. He helped me with my indecisiveness on the layout of the barn for the reception and he helped us work through our rehearsal and made sure everything went okay the day of the wedding. My husband and I spent some time after the guests had cleared out the night of the wedding chatting with Jack and the two bartenders we had for the receptions. One of them spent time with some of my cousins and younger kids that were at the wedding driving them around the property in the side by side. If the venue itself isn’t enough to convince you, Jacks friendly manner and willingness to help in whatever way he can should definitely do it. You can tell he loves being involved in the wedding business and wants people to have the best time they can.Sent on 09/23/2019

ashlee · Married on 07/27/2019
When we started looking at venues I kept saying that I didnt want a barn wedding. Then we met jack and boy was I extremely happy that we did! We sat down from the beginning he was so personable the meeting about what he has and the prices was so comfortable it didnt feel like a business meeting it felt like we sat down with a friend. Jack from the start said if we could dream it then it could be done! Me and my family decided to make our own food and decorate on our own . Jack was so supportive with our decision! When I arrived to decorate his staff asked me at least 5 times of I needed help and if they could do anything for me. clean up jack and his staff completed and made it very easy to pick up all of our things the following day! It was 86 the day we got married yes hot! but, with fans it was tolerable and hardly noticed with such breath taking views at sunset and such amazing staff! And he has updated and added two bathrooms in the venue making it easier for our older guests to access the bathroom! All in all I would recommend mkj every single time!! Hat off to you jack you have the best venue !Sent on 07/30/2019
MKJ Farm Barn Weddings's reply:Thanks so much Ashlee! You all put in so much work, and we were happy to help! You did an amazing job and we are glad your wedding was what you dreamed it could be! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day! Jack

Stefanie · Married on 06/08/2019
Beautiful venue with an amazing, personable owner!
Jack at MKJ made my husband and I's wedding day better than I could've imagined. The barn was decorated beautifully, we just added some small personal touches, and we got to do the ceremony up by the pond on the beautiful dock he had just rebuilt. Aside from the fact that the venue if beautiful, Jack made sure the day went by seamlessly which was perfect for me because we didn't go the extra mile to hire a wedding coordinator or planner; but with Jack, we didn't need either. He managed our walkthrough for the rehearsal which he so kindly allowed us to do at the barn the night prior, even going to extra mile to pick up out dinner and bring it back to the barn for us to eat. He was always there to offer words of advice and recommendations from his experience. He took us up to the top of the hill for beautiful pictures and set off a wonderful fireworks display later in the evening. He also made sure the shuttle service ran to our liking and even picked us up personally the following morning to go back and get our vehicle. I would not hesitate to chose Jack and MKJ again if I had to do it all over!Sent on 08/07/2019
MKJ Farm Barn Weddings's reply:Thanks for the glowing words Stefanie! I was happy to help and glad to know that you felt taken care of! No problem at all to make sure you have the day you dreamed of! You got some amazing pictures! We appreciate you choosing MKJ!! Jack
Jennifer Jury · Married on 05/25/2019
the absolute best day ever!
Hosting our wedding at MKJ was the best decision we ever made. We opted for the ceremony outdoors next to the pond and what an absolutely gorgeous spot it was! The reception space is grand with all the amenities you need; including a gorgeous and rustic bar that literally is the icing the cake in this space. Jack goes above and beyond to make your day perfect... so you can just relax and enjoy your day!Sent on 06/28/2019

Not enough words
Jack was amazing. The venue was absolutely gorgeous. My BEST friend got married here on May 18th, and it couldn't have been any better. We were able to get ready in his beautiful home, the scenery and decor was breathtaking, and he really went above and beyond. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a barn wedding. Thanks SO much!!Sent on 05/31/2019
Joe Mosley · Married on 05/11/2019
Excellent venue, even better owner
Venue was spot on, very large space to have reception and ceremony all in the barn and still have it “separated” so it feels like two different locations. Has a spot by a pond to be married as well. Jack was always responsive and very professional with any and all of our questions we had. He let us use anything he had on site, was wonderful to the bride and bridal party even opening up his own home for use. Very easy going and works with you along the way to make it as stress free as possible. Jack went above and beyond our expectations. Would highly recommend.Sent on 05/20/2019
MKJ Farm Barn Weddings's reply:Thank you Joe! We try to make sure you have everything you want and need for your wedding day - and sure don't want it to be stressful!

Beautiful venue with an amazing owner
The venue is simply amazing. So many different location options for pictures. Also options for indoor or outdoor ceremonies. The whole venue is so beautiful inside and out. The owner is super nice and so accommodating. He made everything from all the planning, to that very day so easy. I will recommend this venue a hundred times over.Sent on 12/07/2018

You can’t go wrong with this Venue
Oh my gosh how could we not give this 10 stars out of 5 lol. But I guess 5 will do. Outside of the beautiful bride all people have raved about is how beautiful MKJ farm is. You can’t beat the price of this place. If we did our type of wedding anywhere else it would have cost about 2-3 thousand more then what Jacks venue cost. And I will repeat this more in the review so get used it. You won’t meet a nicer down to earth guy then Jack. He answered our numerous phone calls and visits to the barn as we lived 2 hours away.Sent on 12/02/2018
He offered to go above and beyond anything we asked for. He was awesome to deal with. Did I mention how nice and down to earth he is? I highly recommend renting the bus for your guests to use as a shuttle from the hotel to site and site to hotel. We used the Hampton inn and home wood suites for our wedding and the ride is not that bad at all.
We rented the bus and used it literally from 6:45 AM to take the grooms party golfing almost 30 mins away and back to the hotel and numerous shuttles and special trips throughout the day. We ended up having our last trip for the night around midnight. Jack even came and picked us up the next morning after the wedding to return us back to the farm to get cars left behind.
In conjunction with using MKJ farm we used the following vendors who loved working with jack and had no problems servicing the area.
DJ - Music Man Entertainment
Photographer - Matt McClosky Photography
Videographer - Bharti Productions
Caterer - Seymour’s BBQ
Cake - Oh Goodness Cakes!
You can’t go wrong with this place ever! We viewed 5 facilities MKJ farm being 2nd one we looked at and i should have just booked with him upon meeting him.

Best Barn Venue in Upstate NY
My now husband and I actually met at MKJ when mutual college friends got married, so when it was time for us to get hitched we couldn't think of a better place to go!
Jack and his team are amazing, and could not do more for you to help plan and make sure you have the best day possible. He was so easy to work with, and was always happy to answer any of my questions or concerns leading up to our wedding. When it came time for the big day, he was there all day and helped us switch the ceremony site from the pond to the barn because it had rained the night before and it was too wet. I gave a simple yup that is good with me, and away they went to sort it all out. And it was breathtaking! I could not have asked for a more beautiful place.
We had talked ahead of time about dancing on that gorgeous bar, and all I had to do was tell the bartender "It's Time!", and they cleared it off and we got up there and shook our booties!! It was the best. We also got married on a Friday (hello cheaper!) and we had the whole week to set up and drop things off. I hired a decorator recommended by Jack and it was awesome, I didn't have to lift a finger for set up or clean up! Jack and his team picked everything up, and while we were hung over, we went the next day and just threw it all in my car.
Because of all of these amazing things that is MKJ, Jack, and his team, you need to book this place early! Don't say no to this place just because he doesn't have your dream date available, make it work. I promise you it is worth it!! No barn in the area can beat Jack :)Sent on 01/25/2019

Chelsea · Married on 09/22/2018
We recently got married at MKJ and I don’t even know where to start with how much we loved this experience!! The owner, Jack, is amazing!! He helped through the whole process. From the first meeting, to the planning, to the dealing with the stress and anxiety any bride has for her wedding! He makes everything so easy! He provides his house to have the bridal party get ready in overlooking the beautiful barn. He will shuttle guests up in the “limo” and makes everyone feel so comfortable. During the night he checked in with us to see if there was anything we needed or wanted. That night he will pack everything up for you and place it on the bar so when you come back in the morning it’s an easy clean up. Thank you so much Jack for the best wedding experience!!Sent on 09/23/2018

Rhonda · Married on 08/25/2018
We couldn't have asked for anything more for my daughter's wedding. Jack makes the entire experience stress free, from the initial meeting, to the planning before, set-up of the venue, rehearsal and the day of the wedding. The bridal party gets ready right there in a beautiful house at the top of the hill. He steps in to do whatever whenever. He shuttles guests, lights candles, scoops ice cream if needed! Whether the wedding is outside with the pond as the backdrop or in the big beautiful barn, you will not be disappointed. I've included just one picture so you can see the view at this beautiful countryside setting. He makes sure that the gifts and cards are secure (unfortunately apparently there are people who take cards knowing that there's money in them) and he cleans everything up, packs/stacks neatly for your pickup the next day. Please consider MKJ Farm for your wedding: http://mkjfarm.com/pricing-faq.phpSent on 08/31/2018

Mark · Married on 07/28/2018
We held our wedding at this venue in late July. This is by far the best place in upstate New York to hold a wedding. The scenery is absolutely amazing for pictures, the grounds are very well kept, the barn is amazing inside and out, the ceremony location at the pond is great as well. This venue overall for appearance is A+. The owner Jack, I can't say anywhere near enough good things about him. He isn't a wedding planner, but you wouldn't know that. You'd think that's his full time job with how well everything runs up there. He's always around doing things in the background to make sure your event goes as smooth as it can, but you'll hardly see him if at all. I would very highly recommend this venue to anyone solely on Jack's abilities and his attitude. Absolutely wonderful.Sent on 07/30/2018

Megan · Married on 07/21/2018
I absolutely loved this venue and the owner, jack. He plays such an important roll, he has a preferred list of vendors that he has had dealt with and had nothing but s good experience, he has options for you (fireworks, multiple ceremony spots, party bus, use of his house), he goes above and beyond. Not only did he pick up our alcohol order but he stocked the bar and had everything cold, he provided us with our liquor license as well as a bartender, he was available to answer any and all calls, knowledgeable of his venue and ideas and ways that’s worked in the past (decorating, set up..). I also loved that we had use of his house, everyone came to me. Make up, hair, family. It was so important that I wasn’t running around anymore than need be just due to the fact the day already flies to begin with. The people that help when it comes to weddings are just as nice. Everyone had a smile, everyone had a good time and everyone enjoyed the space. I would chose jack and his venue 10 times over again. He truly does it for couples happily ever after rather then to make a buck or two and it def shows! Thanks so much Jack!Sent on 08/03/2018
MKJ Farm Barn Weddings's reply:Wow Megan - thank you so much for all your kind words! I just want to make sure all the couples have the best day possible and I'm glad you enjoyed MKJ, and had the wedding you hoped for! Hope you come back for a visit in the future! Thanks you very much for choosing to have your day here! Jack
