Reviews by Sweet Berry Farm Couples
“We ordered raspberry jams as our favors for our wedding...I added our own stickers to the top to add a personal touch. We worked directly with Steve who was helpful and kind. They were a big hit.” -Brianne, via WeddingWire
“The venue is spectacular … We are so happy to have had the facility of the barn structure, amazing photo opportunities on the farm and were lucky enough to have good weather too. Highly recommended for our wedding size. Many guests dubbed this as ‘best wedding ever’ and I know the venue had a lot to do with it!” -Kate, via WeddingWire
“We had a clambake by Compton Clambakes...It was a beautiful setting and a perfect night. Everyone played lawn games (supplied by Sweet Berry) and enjoyed the evening until it was time to go into the barn for dinner. It was the ideal place for a rehearsal dinner.” -Caroline, via TheKnot
“Sweet Berry Farm...put together the most lovely bouquets. They were made up of wildflowers in bloom at that time; the colors were vibrant and beautiful...They are open to making exactly what you want; or to taking vague ideas and running with their own (excellent) taste and creativity...Also, it is just a great place to visit -- beautiful farm and on-site flowers, plus a delicious bakery; great sandwiches and cookies.” -C.H., via TheKnot
