About Josias River Farm

Josias River Farm is a classic 250-year-old Maine farm situated on 20 scenic acres of forests, open fields, pastures and an apple orchard. Stone walls, rail fences and perennial beds surround our original antique cape and rustic New England barn in this relaxed country setting. We offer for your special event a beautiful open field perfect for any size tent, and our barn for cocktails, dancing and intimate dinners.

Elegance and approachability – the best of both worlds. Josias River Farm is an absolute gem of a wedding location. It offers the perfect combination of elegance and approachability. We wanted a place where our guests could feel both right-at-home and “something special” – and Josias River Farm was just that. The property itself is immaculate, and the owners take great care to ensure every detail is accounted for and that you, as a couple, feel like the Farm is especially yours for the weekend. The flexibility the venue provides was also really important to us. We loved being able to choose our own vendors for each part of the wedding. We couldn’t be happier with the choice of Josias River Farm for our special day!
Wedding Weekend of our Dreams! I cannot say enough about the beautiful Josias River Farm! I feel it does need to be stated the my review is speaking mostly to the property because new owners have taken it on since our August wedding! However, in my few, brief interactions with Laura, she was friendly, responsive and so kind! The property at the farm made our wedding day exactly all that we wanted it to be. Being able to spend the whole weekend on site and create all of our memories in such a beautiful space was amazing. We hosted our rehearsal dinner inside the barn despite pouring rain, got ready in the bright and roomy side rooms of the house, said “I do” in the barn as the rain clouds hovered, dined and drank under a tent behind the vegetable garden and danced the night away in the barn! The flexibility with the weather and the endless setup options made the planning so easy. A number of our guests said “how did you find this place,” “this place is incredible,” and so on! Even family members who are not very observant spoke highly of the grounds. We LOVED every second of our wedding weekend and that was due, in large part, to having it at Josias River Farm.

We are now booking for the 2025 season.

My husband and I met in Maine over 7 years ago, on our 6 year Anniversary we went back to the place we met and he proposed! It didn’t take us long to decide that having a Maine Wedding would be the most meaningful, special and perfect option for us. 🙂 For as long as I can remember, I knew I wanted a Farm Wedding, considering I’ve been wearing Cowboy Boots since I was in diapers…

When we came across Josias River Farm it took my breath away… The pictures showed such a gorgeous setting!! It had everything, a stunning outdoor garden area where the musicians in our family could entertain guests during cocktail hour, and a beautiful barn where we could eat, drink and dance the night away! Along with the Farm’s Rustic Charm and the adorable goats, it stole our hearts and we booked the Venue, site unseen!

After nearly a year of planning, we couldn’t have been happier when we arrived to the Farm to begin preparing for our Rustic Farm Wedding. It was a Fairy Tale Wedding, even more beautiful than I could have imagined it!! The day was PERFECT & we had the time of our lives!! Our guests are still talking about how it was one of the most beautiful and fun weddings they’ve attended!! 🙂 Since everyone traveled to be there, It’s convenience to the airports, beaches and quaint town made it even more appealing!!

We’re already trying to figure out how we can have reunion parties there in the years to come!!

Having been a wedding planner for over a decade and being able to work around so many beautiful wedding venues, I must say hands down, Josias River Farm is second to none. The rustic barn, charming landscape, and breathtaking gardens are enough to make any bride swoon. As if that weren’t enough, the owners Laura and Charlie, are absolutely amazing to work with. Having the pleasure of working with such kind, accommodating, communicative owners, made my job easy.

From the moment you step on the farm to the day of clean-up you feel welcomed with open arms. Brides, their families, and guests are truly made to feel so special. I am hoping that all of my future brides will consider this venue for their special day.
