For the past 15 years, the organization I work for, Citizen Advocacy of Chester County, has held our annual auction fundraiser at The Farmhouse. The food, the service, the staff have been nothing short of remarkable! Everybody is so friendly, professional and exceptional. We are so deeply grateful to The Farmhouse for making our annual fundraiser into such a huge success for our organization. We couldn't recommend it more for your own event!

After moving to Texas from the Philadelphia area, we still wanted to have our wedding at "home", and working with the venue was so easy to plan from halfway across the country! Spencer was absolutely wonderful to work with and put us completely at ease from the first time we met him. His response time is excellent and his personality is so fun to be around! He knows what he is doing. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, I can not even think of one little thing that didn't go as desired. The ceremony (which had to be moved under the patio at literally the last minute due to rain), reception, food, staff, EVERYTHING was wonderful. My husband and I had an amazing time as did our guests. We have gotten so many compliments. This place is beautiful inside and out and includes a lot with your package which makes things easy. The day flew by but one thing that stands out is the fact that I was able to enjoy myself the entire time and not worry about a single thing, and it all went off without a hitch thanks to Spencer and everyone at The Farmhouse. I absolutely recommend this place!

We could not have imagined a more perfect day. We (and all of our guests) had a fabulous time. I had a very specific idea in my mind of how I wanted our day to be and through Spencer Brennan's planning and organization he brought it to life! He had incredible patience with all my questions, charts and planning and showed grace and good judgment when it came to how things should be run and set up. From jumping in as bartender to dancing with our guests his presence and positive/problem solving attitude made the day everything we could ever wish for!

When we found out there was a transition in the coordinator we would be working with in August I went into panic mode but as soon as we met Spencer, he put both Andrew and I totally at ease. It turns out that switch was the best thing to ever happen to our wedding! When we came up for a food tasting, we left feeling absolutely confident that one of the most important days in our life was in good hands! (And oh my god that dressing!) We knew that no matter what happened he would make sure that the wedding would go smoothly. And it did. There was absolutely nothing left for us to worry about. I know there were things that happened throughout the day that provided challenges but we did not know anything about them!

We had such a wonderful time, we wish we could do it all over again.

Thanks to Betsy and everyone at the Farmhouse for the wedding of my dreams! Betsy was a valuable resource for all my crazy questions and concerns. She allowed my sister and I to get into the venue the day before to ensure everything was just as I wanted it. It was a pleasure working with her and the rest of the staff. Thanks again!!

Shane (chef) and Sandie (coordinator) did a wonderful job! Our wedding reception went perfectly and was beautiful. The food was exceptional! We have been told by numerous guests how wonderful the food was. We highly recommend this venue for a wedding reception (our ceremony was somewhere else). The grounds are beautiful so it would make a great place for a ceremony as well.

I could not have picked a better place for my wedding ceremony and reception! It was the perfect day. The service is outstanding. I received personal service every step of the way. I felt confident that the professionals wanted my wedding to be just as beautiful as I did. We are still receiving comments on the beauty of the site. Everyone loved the gardens, the ceremony site, as well as the ballroom and patio area. It was the PERFECt fit for our garden wedding! You will not be disappointed!

We were really happy with our wedding ceremony & reception that was held at the People's Light Theater & Farmhouse. Everyone loved the garden atmosphere. I was very pleased with Betsy (the event coordinator) and her professionalism, flexibility and just the fact that she was a sweet person who was easy to work with. We wanted a wedding that was simple and elegant and we found just that at the People's Light. I would recommend this venue for brides who are down to earth, and want to keep things simple yet beautiful for their wedding day. At the last minute, due to the heat and humidity- we decided to move the ceremony inside- Betsy was quick to direct her team regarding the change and did a wonderful job at transforming the inside for our ceremony. I honestly did not have to worry about a thing.

One thing to note is that the previous chef from about two years back now works at a nearby restaurant and is very outspoken about his personal feelings about the falling out he had with management that resulted in his termination from the farmhouse. I went there with my family and he tried to convince me not to have our event there- so beware of reviews bashing the new management and staff- because based on my experience they seem to stem from the previous chef who is still very bitter about being asked to leave.

My wife and I had a ceremony, reception, and rehearsal dinner all here on June 10-11th 2016 and we were ecstatic with the results of our big day! This is such a beautiful venue, gorgeously landscaped gardens, great interior layout, and a very accommodating staff. We shopped around at a lot of venues in and around Philadelphia, and we chose this one not just for how breathtaking the scenery is, but it was a great deal. They package everything you would need into one affordable bill, no extra costs or headaches. The catering was delicious and very flexible to fit our specific menu requests. The event staff was also great at returning calls and helping us to solve all of the little details that pop up during the planning process. I would highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a place near the city, but with ample parking and a ton of options.
