VENUE RENTAL FOR
WEDDINGS & EVENTS
At Broadturn Farm, we have hosted fundraisers, birthday gatherings, and business retreats, but our specialty is weddings...
Celebrate your love and connect it to your values here at Broadturn Farm. Getting married on an organic farm expresses individuality and a commitment to the beauty of local, organic food and flowers. A wedding is an opportunity to share this vision of a regenerative world with your loved ones. Each event is unique, and crafted to honor the season and the bounty available. Your wedding will reflect your value of building local businesses and healthy ecosystems. It will honor your passion for delicious, seasonal food. We are committed to helping you create an event that meets your needs and that always maintains your deep sense of values with regard to the climate. We’ve hosted over 180 weddings and guarantee you can have a fabulous event, full of grace and deeply meaningful without making Greta Thunberg frown. Our family of clients stay in touch with us, visit the farm as their families grow, and the idea that we are part of their story makes our hearts sing.
Our season for event hosting runs from Memorial Day Weekend through September. We do not host weddings into October as the farm can be quite cold and dark at night, especially in inclement weather.
Located 12 miles from Portland, ME, and 10 miles from the coast, convenient to I-95 and Boston, Broadturn Farm partners with local purveyors to ensure the menu you choose for your wedding reception honors the tradition of Maine foods. The flowers from our fields will grace every table and our produce will fill every belly.

Vision & Mission
We work with you to ensure that your celebration is a reflection of your love, your life, and your values. The farm is at once a vision of our shared heritage and a proposal of a sustainable future. The food which we raise is a fundamental unifier. The beauty is universal. A farm wedding is beautiful, meaningful and memorable.
You can read a little more about how our hearts and heads embrace being in the wedding business here.
Starting in 2019, we instituted a ZERO PLASTIC WASTE policy for our weddings. This means no plastic straws or cocktail stirrers, no bottled water, no compostable dishware (it doesn’t break down in our compost pile!), and no plastic cups. After 18 years in the wedding industry, we are done with big trips to the dump to unload wedding refuse. We are happy to help you plan an event that has limited waste and together we can all feel good about being part of the solution.

They are both all committed to creating a menu for your wedding that reflects seasonal, local ingredients, including those coming from the Maine coast. These companies ensure that Broadturn Farm ingredients are used and they will source other local and organic ingredients to complete the menu. Hiring one of these caterers supports our local food community. In addition, they have superb front of house staff that are able to manage day-of coordinating for your event.
