Originally built a century ago, the Barn at Quonquont Farm has been painstakingly restored to a bright, open space that will dazzle your guests. The barn board interior pairs beautifully with stylish lighting to create an elegant setting to celebrate any occasion. The 5,000 square foot space includes seating for 200 guests, yet remains versatile for more intimate gatherings. With a full bar, a catering kitchen, spacious restrooms, and climate control, the Barn has every amenity to ensure your guests’ comfort.
Creative cocktails, top-shelf liquor, and the products of local master brewers make the warm charm of Quonquont’s Silo Bar the talk of the town. We infuse our own seasonal fresh fruit and cider into delightful concoctions that will complement your evening, keep your guests content, and add a personal touch to your festive occasion. Let our team work with you to design the perfect cocktail for your perfect day.
Elegant old apple and peach orchards, rambling blueberry patches, sparkling ponds, flowering meadows, and forested uplands make the view at Quonquont Farm spectacular at any time of year.
Thinking of a wedding? Usher your guests to a seat on our manicured lawn. Or lead them down the path to a clearing in the apple orchard to witness your exchange of vows. Our soaring post-and-beam pavilion overlooks a blooming field of flowers and provides shelter and shade, rain or shine, for your ceremony.
After the ceremony, we’ll welcome your guests to our hand laid flagstone patio. Surrounded by lush gardens, your guests can enjoy a cocktail on the patio or sit back in one of the Adirondack chairs on our lawn to take in the sweeping view of orchards, forests, meadows, and mountains that provide the perfect backdrop for your special day.

“If I could give this venue 10 stars I would do it in a heartbeat!!! Meeting with Jenelle and touring the venue for the first time was so refreshing. My fiancé and I walked back to the car after the meeting and were so impressed. We couldn’t get over it! We had toured many venues, met with many coordinators and nothing came close to Quonquont and their staff… Sitting here almost exactly a month after eloping at Quonquont Farm, we could not be happier with our decision to use this venue!
“2020 has definitely thrown every bride, groom and venue/vendor for a complete loop. No one was prepared for what was ahead. My fiancé and I had worked with Jenelle and the Quonquont team for a year and a half planning for our dream wedding to take place on June 27, 2020. As the date got closer it became clear that it would not be possible to proceed with our dream day as planned due to the challenges around Covid-19. This year has been very stressful on everyone and as a bride it was an emotional roller coaster. I truly cannot thank Jenelle and the team for their unparalleled support during these times of uncertainty and helping us to navigate the situation. Many of my friends were in the same situation planning a wedding during the pandemic and they had been in tears so often from the stress / complications of working with their venue. We never once had this issue and I am so grateful. The communication was exceptional – the team is so responsive you never have to wait on a reply… When I emailed Jenelle out of the blue two weeks before our original date of 6/27/20 saying we wanted to elope at Quonquont she got right back to me assuring me it was possible! In a very short 2 week span Jenelle and team pulled off our dream elopement!!!…We left the day feeling so blessed and thankful to have chosen such a great place with such a great staff – BAR NONE. The best.”-Andrea, June 2020
“The apple orchard, the barn with its beams and chandeliers, the beautiful foliage, the spacious bridal suite. And just as stunning as the venue itself is the service provided. By booking with Quonquont you get so much more than ‘just a venue;’ you get fabulous wedding coordinators.” –Megan, October 2019
“From the second we drove onto the property for our first tour, we knew it was the place for us. The event coordinators were incredible from the beginning—kind, helpful, enthusiastic, and ready for anything. They were more than happy to tweak the details with us until they were just right. I truly cannot say enough good things about the entire staff and cannot recommend Quonquont Farm enough.” –Michele, September 2019
“The Quonquont team did an amazing job helping us plan before the wedding and organizing on the day of. They thought of everything and were so kind and helpful. We used them for our florist as well and could not recommend it enough. They were so easy to work with, and all of the flowers were exactly what we wanted. The day was absolutely perfect.” –Nikki, August 2019.
“Planning our special day, the Quonquont team was amazing in helping us achieve our vision and making it a reality. They are super detail-oriented and help you think about everything from where to put your flowers to how to fold your napkins. If you want a rustic farm wedding with all the modern conveniences look no further than Quonquont Farm. The gorgeous venue and incredible support of the staff made planning and executing our big day easy.”—Hali, July 2019
“The first word that comes to mind when I think about Quonquont and their amazing team is flawless. Everything – from the beautiful grounds, to the unique setting, to the amazing service and hospitality– the entire experience with Quonquont led to the perfectly choreographed day in June. Their team is a joy to work with, and they were a good portion of the reason we choose Quonquont. They’re the best!”—Ally, June 2019
