At Sunny Slope Farm... 

Over the last five years we have had many family celebrations of all sorts here at our lovely family farm.

Winter/Spring 2015 dates are still available!
There are a number of possible

locations on Sunny Slope Farm where you can celebrate a wedding, anniversary party, Big Birthday, or family reunion. 


It all depends upon the number of guests that are expected to attend.

As far as making

arrangements for your event, we do have a couple of names of caterers, flower people, Justices, and tent providers that we have gleaned from families that have celebrated an event here in the past, but, otherwise, we don't do any of the arranging of the event ourselves.


We are always glad, though, to answer questions and help with as much information as we can.


Please check our Service Providers list for the list of vendors that other couples and families have recommended from their events here at Sunny Slope Farm.

There are several places on the farm where folks have placed big tents... primarily, though, on the front lawn or in the hayfield.

The big red barn

is a popular spot for celebrations, and it is particularly wonderful for weddings ~ most often for dancing and cocktails, or for the rehearsal dinner ~but there have been several weddings (as well as anniversary parties, like the one pictured below!) where the entire event took place in the barn.

We have several old

carriages and sleighs that can be left inside or dragged out under the apple tree, that folks have often used for food display, or for wedding pictures, or just as seating for the kids!


We also have some old bathtubs, perfect for holding ice and beverages & wine or kegs! And lots of old doors and windows to play with, (not to mention the Canning Room full of jar and candles and fun stuff that brides & grooms have "paid forward" to the next couple)!


The NH Dept. of Safety, Div. of Fire Safety requires that at least one person attending an event take a "crowd management" course. This must be done & submitted to the Alton Fire Dept., attn. Chief Scott Williams (firerescue@alton.nh.gov) before the wedding or they will not allow the gathering. Please check out the following website for further details, requirements & information:


Also, our insurance company is now requiring that anyone who is serving alcohol themselves will need to get temporary event liability insurance ~ the Event Insurance should show Sunny Slope as an additional insured.

Two websites have been recommended:


insurEvent.com or


The barn is best

for weddings of fewer than 120, (and if you are sitting down to dinner, probably 115 is better if you want to leave some dance floor open!), although the fire department will allow up to 127. It is a wonderful old building (we won an historic preservation easement on it,

as well as on the stable & well house a couple of years ago) and has "faery" lights already strung in the rafters....


And when you open the big barn doors you get a wonderful view of the hayfield and the apple tree!

And 2015 bride Lara Zdanowicz said:

"My insurance agent suggested WedSafe,

it was very reasonable.  He also mentioned there was a minimum of $1,000,000 for General Liability required"
