Bradstreet Farm in Rowley, Mass., is the second-oldest continually operating farm in the U.S. Originally deeded by King Charles I of England to Humphrey Bradstreet in 1635, the property remained in the Bradstreet Family until 2007. The farmhouse and barn are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
After 350 years, and a three-year restoration of the fields and buildings, the new owners want to share this landmark property with others by offering the Bradstreet Farm venue for farm-to-table weddings and other functions. Guests can get an inside look at an operating farm, enjoy our beautiful scenery and delight in locally sourced food and flowers.
Always dreamed of having a barn wedding? Our 18th-century post-and-beam barn features original haylofts and horse stalls. The building - now offered as a wedding venue - has been lovingly restored by a master carpenter with 30+ years of experience in historic renovations on Boston’s North Shore.
Just minutes off 95 on Boston's North Shore, Rowley is convenient to Ipswich, Newbury and Newburyport.
At our farm-to-table weddings and events, select local caterers prepare delicious meals featuring seasonal herbs, vegetables, fruits and produce grown here on the farm. We complement our own stock with items from other local farms, including vegetables, fruits, meats and fish. We can also provide fresh flowers from our on-site garden. There is room in the fields for tents and parking. A large patio off the Barn overlooks conservation land, our farm animals and seasonal crops. A fire pit and lawn games complete the property. The Barn is adjacent to a restored 19th-century farmhouse that currently serves as a private residence. A private 2BR cottage is included in your event rental, and available for overnight use.
Tables, chairs and linens are also included with your rental.
Tours are by appointment only.
