About Us

To the couple for whom Nixon's Farm is all about:

If you’re looking for the perfect country wedding at a reasonable price, look no further. Nixon’s Farm is the fun place to hold your wedding. We’re not a stuffy, snobby ballroom where guests fidget uncomfortably, but a country setting with rolling hills, fresh air, and room to relax and enjoy your special day. Our menus are exciting, and include tastes that have made Nixon’s Farm famous. Our hospitality will leave you and your guests delighted.

Our indoor facility is a converted 156 year old Pennsylvania Dutch Bank Barn, redone in late 19th century style. The original wood beams have been lovingly preserved, and the vaulted ceiling has been restored. Queen Anne chandeliers and wood floors complete the interior, while French doors open up to a balcony. Our outdoor facilities consist of the ceremony area, called the Bamboo Court. An ancient orchard, the area is a natural amphitheatre with a gazebo, garden areas, picket fence, and a long bridge for wedding photos. Nixon’s Farm is just a short drive from anywhere, making us the perfect event location.

We are “centrally isolated!" That means we're close to the metropolitan areas, but have lots of open space and fresh air for your wedding. The rolling countryside and beautiful views are the consummate setting for entertaining, and you and your guests will relax the minute you arrive. Our food is legendary and our staff has been bringing smiles to faces for over 56 years.

We are Reasonable.  We are not out to take anybody to the cleaners.  We want your day to be perfect and perfectly within your budget.  

If We Don’t Know, We Say So. We don’t make promises we can’t keep.  If we aren’t sure it’s something we can pull off, we check and get back to you later.  If we can’t do it, we let you know.

If you’re not a Nixon’s Farm Bride, Don’t Fret. We’re the perfect spot for many brides, but not all.  We can do a lot of things, but not everything.  We don’t kill ourselves to try to be something we are not.  We’re not a big hotel, and we’re not a wedding factory.  We take immense pride in what we do. We would appreciate the opportunity to do it for you.
