Valley View Farm is a historic working farm, cidery, and wedding venue nestled in the quiet hills of Hayden, MA. It's only twelve minutes from a bustling college town with charming hotels. Featuring restored 19th-century barns, a craft cidery, and cozy farmhouse accommodations, it's the perfect place for a thoughtful and charming wedding. From expert planning and beautiful spaces to food and drinks guests will rave about, we’ve got you covered. Our crew of expert planners and staff is available for your every need and will organize a seamless event for you and yours. Start the day in our early morning hair and makeup suite, the Baldwin Loft, followed getting dressed in our two other suites, the MUSE Cider Bar and the Love Nest. Enjoy a ceremony under the 100-year-old hickory tree or in our covered Hemenway Barn followed by drinks on the stone patio with our full menu of barrel-aged cider, cocktails using our fresh farm-grown ingredients, wines and local craft beers. Our in-house Chef provides meals featuring nearly 100% locally sourced produce and 90% locally sourced meat, dairy and grains. Afterwards, continue the celebration in our elegant barn and outside around our stone fire pits, taking in the serene country sky full of stars. Extend the evening with an after party on site complete with late night bites from our wood-fired pizza oven or taco truck complimented with a cigar and whisky bar.

FARM-TO-TABLE CATERING: Guests at Valley View are fed meals sourced directly from our fields, woods and nearby farms. Our in-house chef thoughtfully crafts each menu around the season and your preferences. You’ll be invited to our quarterly tasting dinners where we’ll gather at long tables to experience and taste the food paired with farm-made ciders and signature cocktails. CRAFTED COCKTAILS We pride ourselves in our top-notch offerings, local craft brews and wine, our own farm ciders, and imaginative cocktail creations. Our greenhouse and gardens are dedicated to growing fresh herbs for cocktails. Whether you are a bourbon enthusiast, an IPA fanatic, hard cider friend, or wine connoisseur, we’ll put together a beverage menu that will thrill your guests.
