Wedding & Events

Sweet Berry Farm is a unique natural setting to host your event. Overlooking Aquidneck Island, Sweet Berry Farm provides use of two different locations.

The Orchard Field, bordered by apple orchards and a hydrangea hedge, picturesque curly willow trees, and sloping fields.

The Post-and-Beam Barn, with a fieldstone fireplace.

Whether your event is an elegant private party, a memorable wedding or rehearsal dinner, a corporate function, a pull-out-all-the-stops gala fundraiser, or anything in between, our wide open Orchard Field can accommodate anywhere from 20 to 400 guests. Our Barn is the perfect spot for a small rehearsal dinner, wedding, or intimate dinner party, and the apple and peach orchard is a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony.

By choosing Sweet Berry Farm for your event, you and your guests will not only have a unique and memorable experience, but you will help to sustain the viability of farms and preserve open space.

Additionally, if the event is canceled more than 60 days prior to the event date, the initial rental deposit will be refunded except for a $350 processing fee. If the event is canceled within 60 days of the event date and the final deposit has been made, only the initial deposit will be kept by the lessor.Access to the event location for tent installation and vendor set-up is allowed one day prior to the event date, based upon availability. The Barn is available for set-up two hours prior to the event. An hour is allowed for breakdown and clean-up after the event. All trash must be removed from the site.
