We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding! The staff was excellent and so helpful throughout the wedding planning process from start to finish. They day of our wedding, it was a very chilly May day with extreme winds and the staff at Harvest View was so flexible... Read More and accommodating as we had to move the ceremony from outdoors to indoors the morning of our wedding. They then took charge and flipped the space from the ceremony setup to the reception setup flawlessly and didn't require anything from our bridal party/family as they handled it all taking stress off our shoulders. Even though we were disappointed the ceremony couldn't be outside like we had anticipated, the barn was a gorgeous space for an indoor ceremony and reception. We couldn't have imagined a better space for an indoor ceremony and reception. We can't say thank you to the staff at Harvest View Barn enough!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Harvest View and their staff. Clearly, the location is absolutely breathtaking, we knew within minutes of visiting that this was the perfect location for us. The outdoor scenery is calm and private and the multiple levels of the barn... Read More are romantic and rustic, but also elegant. Having an actual space for in indoor ceremony in case of rain was very important to us, and the lower level of the barn is a perfect fit for any indoor ceremony. Also having the entire house as a bridal suite for the girls/guys for the day-of was wonderful. We were able to relax and enjoy our day with ample space. It took the stress out and made the entire process wonderful. And Shirley and her staff are absolutely fantastic. They are warm and welcoming and on the ball! Unfortunately, I met a number of folks through the planning process who were unprofessional or unorganized, but you WILL NOT have that issue at Harvest View. They are extremely professional and organized, they have every detail covered and they go above and beyond to make your day special. We had decided to have our ceremony inside due to potential rain, and 45 minutes before the ceremony it was clear skies and no calls for rain, so the staff was able to move everything outside and reset the downstairs for cocktail hour! It could not have made me happier and I could not express how much it meant to me. I highly recommend Harvest View to anyone looking for a romantic and rustic atmosphere, with charm and elegance!

We are incredibly happy with our choice to book the Harvest View Barn for our wedding! The grounds are stunning and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. The farmhouse next to the main barn was perfect for our bridal party to get ready and enjoy the morning with. We had... Read More some rain on our wedding day, so our ceremony was inside the barn. The staff did an amazing job of flipping the room during cocktail hour. We received so many complements from our guest about the venue and the staff. Jes was our day of coordinator, and I don’t think we could have pulled it off without her. She truly went above and beyond to make our day perfect. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful barn wedding!

From the moment we walked into this venue, we knew it was the one for my daughter's wedding on New Year's Eve. The outside grounds and vistas of farmland are spectacular, and the inside facilities are gorgeous! The venue itself was the star of the show! Shirley and her team...

Lovely! We wish we could live here--it's secluded and gorgeous. Every picture looked like one out of a magazine. We enjoyed working with Shirley and her family. Our caterer (Rettew's) worked with them before and so Michelle (from Rettew's) was the perfect match in working with... Read More the Hershey family as well as introducing some new ideas we had in mind. This is one of four barns that offers central air (that we researched) in PA. It fit all of our family and friends--our meal was served and we danced the night away with a live Polka/rock band. My only wish is that we could have stayed until 11PM. The 10PM end of the night didn't leave time for a bouquet toss, but most places in PA have this rule due to alcohol laws (depending on when it all begins). We really loved it here--it's worth every penny. Our guests were blown away with the landscape. We recommend using a bus company to guests to get there and at the end of the night because of the country roads surrounding the barn.

We loved everything about celebrating our big day at Harvest View! Crystal was phenomenal to work with, and so helpful and accommodating to all of our requests and questions. The venue itself is GORGEOUS, and we loved having the freedom to choose all of our vendors (most of whom... Read More had worked weddings here before anyway). The house on the premises to get ready in on the day-of is wonderful, and includes a kitchen and separated sides of the house for the men and women. The whole property is filled with beautiful photo opportunities, and our guests loved the pond, gazebo, and spacious barn + outdoor areas to walk, drink, eat, dance, and socialize in! We couldn't have asked for a better venue. Our only real issue was that the "rules" of the venue seemed to change several times from the time we signed our contract to the day of our wedding, and it made planning and coordinating with outside vendors somewhat complicated. Other than that, we would highly recommend Harvest View to anyone (and already have)!

We got at Harvest View Barn on 04/23/2016 and it was absolutely perfect. Harvest View Barn is a gorgeous venue. We knew we wanted a barn wedding, and we chose Harvest View Barn because they had the option to move the ceremony inside in case of rain, which a lot of other bar... Read More venues don't have (unless you want the ceremony in the same room as the reception). I am so happy that we did pick Harvest View Barn. There are so many different options for photographs. Shirley was absolutely wonderful to work with and was so accommodating to all of our wishes. My husband and I moved across the country 4 months before our wedding, and Shirley and the rest of the gang were so accommodating to our needs and were so helpful with planning the last few stages of our wedding from time zones away. Many of our guests told us and our families how much they loved the venue, especially those that were from out of town. Reviewed by Amanda, bride.

Our ceremony was downstairs by the fireplace creating an intimate and homey space.

The renovated farmhouse that is right next to the barn was one of my favorite parts of having this venue! From the bridal suites for both parties to get ready, a kitchen to enjoy lunch and cocktails, and a home to just relax and be together before the wedding, it made it such a special time to prepare for the perfect and special night that was ahead.

Harvest View Barn at Hershey Farms was our second to last stop on our venue tour and it took a lot of self-control not to sign with them the moment we stepped on their beautiful property. As a Lancaster county native, I liked the idea of a barn wedding, but did not want to worry... Read More about the hassle or the expense of renting a lot of decor and tables/furniture. Harvest View was the absolute perfect spot for us, because it is gorgeous with very little work and is also beautifully furnished. We had the pleasure of working with Shirley Hershey, who was so sweet, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process. It is also so special to work with a family who has owned the property for generations and takes such pride in what they are doing. Our wedding day was 2 days ago and it rained the entire day, so that the outdoor ceremony was not an option, but countless guests told us that they would never have known the indoor option was our plan B. I actually believe that the indoor option made our wedding ceremony so romantic and intimate and am grateful for not being given the choice. Everyone was amazed by the beauty of the venue and I never imagined my day would be so beautiful. A huge thank you to Shirley, the Hershey family, and the rest of the Harvest View staff for making our day so perfect!

We had our wedding at Harvest View on August 1, 2015. Here are a couple notes about it. 1. It is a little out of the way to get to from philadelphia, but it was worth it as the price is reasonable and we were able to find transportation (busses) from local hotels for our... Read More guests. 2. The venue was re-done in 2014 (I think) and is beautiful. There ere rolling hills of cornfields in the background. 3. The temperature was nice at our wedding, despite being August 1. The Barn was air conditioned and everyone seemed comfortable. 4. The dance floor wasn't huge but was OK. 5. (aside) we had 200 people at our wedding, they say they can accomodate 250 but I wouldn't recommend it. 6. They have a very nice setup/area for caterers. 7. They give you access to a beautiful house to get ready in the day of your wedding, although they do make you clear out all of your stuff before the reception starts (7:30pm they say), which is mildly annoying but understandable. 8. They had a handicapped elevator but it wasn't working on the day of our wedding, my dad had to carry my grandpa into the barn, which was less than ideal. We recommend them! Enjoy.
