Attending an event at the Barn at Bradstreet Farm?
Attending an event at the Barn at Bradstreet Farm? We look forward to having you! Here’s all you need to know:
COVID-19 UPDATE As of May 29, 2021, the state of Massachusetts has removed all COVID-19 related restrictions on events! Of course, if you are more comfortable wearing a mask indoors or outdoors, please do so! We also offer hand sanitizer throughout the venue.
What to Wear Our clients generally set the tone for their own events. Keep in mind you are coming to a working farm. Most ceremonies are outside, and you will be parking in our apple orchard - walking on grass is a certainty. During the spring or fall, you might consider a wrap or jacket so you can enjoy our outdoor space and lawn games in comfort. We do have heat and air conditioning in the Barn.
Event Rules We are very excited to have you come celebrate at our farm in a safe, happy & respectful way. We are the second oldest continuously operating farm in the United States and we have a few rules to keep the farm safe as well as ensure a fun, safe event while you are here!
No vaping or smoking of any kind is allowed.
No outside alcohol of any kind - it will be confiscated and you may be asked to leave the property.
If the hosts' licensed bartenders refuse to serve you for any reason and you do not comply, you will be asked to leave the property.
Unruly, disrespectful behavior towards the farm, our team, another wedding guest or our clients will not be tolerated and you may be asked to leave the property.
No pets with the exception of documented service animals.
All children must be supervised at all times.
No entering the animal pens or feeding the animals.
When guests break these rules, they put their hosts' security deposit at risk. If there are multiple alcohol violations, we may be forced to shut down your hosts' open bar for the evening.
Be kind, have fun and enjoy the beautiful wedding your friends invited you to!
