The Most Magical Wedding Weekend
Satoyama Mountain Farm is the most amazing place and we couldn't be happier with our decision to have our wedding here. The grounds are beautiful and it felt like we had our own private piece of Vermont for the weekend. Everyone was very helpful in the months leading up to the event, and throughout wedding weekend Ben was always available to help if needed or to answer questions. It was the perfect combination of the laid back, DIY wedding that we wanted without feeling like we were completely on our own. The house is really comfortable, and the barn is gorgeous. Our guests were in awe of the entire venue and we were told by many people (most of whom were from Texas and had never been to Vermont before) that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Everything was just perfect and we wish we could do it all over again!Sent on 09/30/2019

Welcoming, Wholesome, Magical
It was such a pleasure to hold our wedding at Satoyama. Ben, Erica, and Stephen were very accommodating and helped us through the whole experience from beginning to end. The space itself was pure magic! Mountains, forests, ponds, a beautiful barn, farm house, and grand property. We felt very integrated with nature which is exactly the type of experience we wanted. 10 out of 10 would recommend!Sent on 06/27/2019

A more perfect wedding venue doesn't exist
Ben, Stephen, and Erica at Satoyama Mountain Farm were a pleasure to work with. They were extremely responsive through our entire wedding planning process leading up to and on the weekend of the event. When we booked the venue for our wedding, we were provided with a list of local vendors (you may use any vendor), blueprints of the barn and the house which made planning so much easier, and assistance with obtaining event insurance and any other odds and ends. We could not have asked for a better people to work with for our DIY wedding. I would do it over and over and over again at Satyoama Farm.Sent on 10/17/2018
The venue is GORGEOUS, serene, and perfect for an outdoor wedding. The barn was a great space for the reception – and very beautiful on it's own, requiring very little decorating. All of our guests were raving about how amazing Satoyama Mountain Farm was. We rented the venue for a long weekend (Friday-Monday) and our entire bridal party (and significant others) were able to stay on location with us in the house for the weekend. This allowed us to spend quality time with family and friends both before and after the wedding.

Best Wedding Ever
This barn + house + surrounding property is absolutely beautiful. I could not recommend this venue enough. It's more than just a venue. Ben has done incredible work on the property, making it perfect for a couple who wants more than just a "barn wedding." This venue is above and beyond that. I can't even put into words how lucky we were to have found Ben's property. We had a 3 day weekend long wedding & it was perfect. From swimming in the ponds to playing kickball amongst currant bushes, to having a bonfire and smores at night, it was incredible. I cannot recommend this venue enough!!!Sent on 12/10/2018
Satoyama Mountain Farm's reply:Thanks Allie - so awesome to have you and Jed be on the farm for your special week! What an awesome couple and family you have and we are always thrilled to see people so thoroughly enjoy this place.

Spectacular Wedding Venue
This was such a special place to have our wedding weekend. After a thorough search of similar locations throughout Vermont, Satoyama Farm caught our eye and it took about 3 minutes of being on the grounds for us to know that this was the place for our special weekend. We were taken back by the stunning views, relaxed vibe and by our positive first-impressions of Ben.Sent on 12/12/2018
After booking the venue, the lead-up to the wedding was positive in terms of communication and straightforwardness. Ben and his father were responsive to our questions within a reasonable timeframe and were both helpful. The whole process was smooth and allowed for our wedding weekend to be even more glorious than anticipated. Ben and family were on site throughout the weekend, which turned out to be reassuring and made for quick solutions to our questions/problems. They easily blended in and were busy doing their own thing, and we were more than happy to share some of our food, drink and conversations with them.
The facilities were more than sufficient to have 50 people for our event, and we are really happy that we decided to stay in the house with close family and friends for 3 nights. This allowed for ourselves and the other house guests to get to know one another and to explore the grounds, and we absolutely utilized all that the farm had to offer, especially the ponds to cool off on our oppressively hot weekend. Also, guests walked the grounds, we had dinner and dance in the barn, had our ceremony in one of the open fields, took pictures in multiple picturesque locations and also had a fire the night of the wedding.
The house itself was well stocked with enough kitchen utensils and appliances to prepare our wedding food, community breakfasts and other meals. It was critical to have the additional refrigerator space in the barn, which allowed us to better house our prepared food. We also were able to compost all our food scraps so that left minimal trash waste.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Satoyama Farm, and strongly recommend it to other people who are looking either for an exceptional, serene location for an event or for just a relaxed weekend away. We can not say enough amazing things about this place and neither could our guests!
Satoyama Mountain Farm's reply:Thanks for spending your special time on the farm guys! And for sharing this experience with folks here. It was awesome having your your group on the farm and seeing everyone enjoy it so thoroughly. Cheers, Ben and Family
