About Green Meadows Petting Farm

Green Meadows Farm is a 124-acre historical farm in the rolling hills of the greater Washington, D.C. metro area and the southern part of Frederick county in Maryland. This unique Agri-tourism venue features nearly 300 farm animals as a picturesque backdrop or included as part of a couples special day. Couples may be married in the majestic 100+ year old hay barn or in the shadows of the stately white Manor house built circa 1790. Then, move to the rustic modern barn called “The Stables” as the perfect location for reception. Green Meadows Farm is 10 minutes south of Frederick, MD and 50 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.

Facilities and Capacity

Green Meadows Farm is that one-of-a-kind venue every couple dreams of. The view of the rolling pastures with many types of animals, historic Manor house, old barns and majestic trees, will have guests in awe. The day begins with a ceremony in the Hay Mow as guests are seated on covered bales of hay for a unique, yet charming touch of country. The celebration continues as the party transitions to The Stables. The tall cathedral ceiling overhead is supported with beams of dark wood decorated with white lights and paper lanterns. The Stable’s capacity of 200 is perfect for year-round events. Summer wedding guests will appreciate the country breeze created by the opening of the Stable’s large double doors. Yet, the heated Stables will keep everyone warm during the chillier winter months. Hosting a wedding at Green Meadows Farm is the chance to stand-out from the ordinary and step into the extraordinary for a wedding that guests will be talking about for years.

Please note there are no weddings booked in October.

Looking for a beautiful country venue for wedding? Well this is the place! My daughter was married here on August 6th, 2016 in front of the manor house (one of the many places to choose to have your ... Read more ceremony). We also had our rehearsal dinner under one of the tents outside on Friday night and were able to set up the day before...a must if you are decorating yourselves!! The farm is very affordable and you are allowed to choose the caterer of your choice, which was a plus since we were serving 200 guests. Ken and Gail were there to accommodate all of our extra ordinary requests, from her riding her horse and including her dog, along with many others. As the mother-of-the-bride this is a trying time and they were always there to listen and help solve even the smallest of problems. Couldn't have asked for better service!!

Perfect venue--with option to stay on-site

I'm giving myself a high-five over picking this wedding venue--things could not have been better! Ken recently opened up an Airbnb ON-SITE, meaning that I was steps away from the ceremony site and ... Read more reception site! This is even better than it sounds, because imagine waking up at 3 A.M, realizing that you actually should move your aunt's place card over to table 4 and simply being able to do it instead of adding it to your to-do list, which is already too long and confusing. In short it is a total lifesaver that becomes more and more beautiful the closer you are to event time (funny how so many details occur to you on the day of and day before the wedding) and don't have to drive to the venue each time you realize you need to add or change something. As the other reviews suggest, the farm itself is outstanding. You will not be able to find a place that takes better care of its animals (they are given so much space to roam and their pens are always spotless--a true feat in the petting farm industry). The farm has so much natural beauty that will charm the eyebrows off of your guests--we keep getting compliments on how beautiful everything was (little did the guests know, the Hay Mow and event barn are already beautifully decorated and need no additions, however, feel free to add whatever decor you please). It was a joy for kids and adults alike, who ever able to chat outside, pet the animals, and watch the fireflies light up. Leading up to the wedding, I never felt alone--Ken and Krissy were always so easy to reach (often, I could just walk outside and find Krissy if I had a question, and she would immediately help me). They made me feel so comfortable and taken care of! You'd be hard-pressed to find a better wedding venue: amazing support, flexibility, kindness, incredibly beautiful event spaces, and the ability to stay on-site--what more could you ask for? Your guests will thank you :)

Absolutely fantastic

We could not have asked for a better wedding venue. Ken and Gail, the owners, are wonderful people, as well as their staff who helped make our day special. They were responsive to my concerns and made ... Read more me feel like it was okay to ask questions and come visit to help me visualize using the reception space. We got multiple compliments from our guests about the petting zoo cocktail hour, as well as the accessibility of the venue and the warmth of the reception space. I cannot recommend Green Meadows enough!
