Red Barn

This circa 1846 traditional Pennsylvania Dutch bank barn is a style common to 19th century America.  The upper level of the barn was designed as a hayloft and can hold 200 guests. A dramatic sloping path leads to the large sliding barn doors which can be either open wide flooding the space with natural sunlight, or pulled closed for an intimate setting. Tucked just behind the barn is a small grove of trees and Organic Gardening magazine’s test garden.
