The Construction

The 8,000 square ft. barn was built by an Amish company located in Lancaster, PA. The barn seats up to 180 people inside and unlimited seating outside with a tent rental. In addition, the barn features custom doors and hardwood floors throughout the entire barn. Every window features water views and the high, arching ceilings evoke an open feel for both small and large parties. Fireplaces provide a rustic atmosphere and include an outdoor fireplace on the enclosed patio and a large fireplace on the main floor. The barn also consists of three impressive custom bathrooms,  a loft and lounge area overlooking the first floor, and 16 x 38 deck overlooking the waterfront at the farm. We offer a luxurious full bridal suite on our third floor and a rustic lodge on the ground floor. Thousand Acre Farm is the only barn in the area that has heat and air conditioning to make your wedding or event comfortable.
