Welcome to Beech Springs Farm
Beech Springs Farm is a small family farm, nestled in a hidden valley in south central Pennsylvania. It is situated 10 miles southwest of historic Gettysburg, PA, 90 minutes north of Washington, DC and Baltimore and within 4 hours of New York, Pittsburgh or Philadelphia. The farm's owners, Jayne and Bill Shord, have owned the farm since 2001. Over the past 13 years they have concentrated their efforts on restoring the property making it economically sustainable.
Great care has been taken to restore the buildings and develop the grounds. The farm's many gardens produce chemical-free, Certified Naturally Grown heirloom produce for area residents and provide a backdrop for many local events. Some of the gardens, such as the 4-square perennial garden, are formal while others are workhorses that produce the vegetables, herbs and flowers for members of the farm's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program from May through October.
In 2013, the Shord's completed restoration of the farm's historic 1867 barn, which is now available for private parties, garden weddings, fundraisers and community events. For outdoor wedding ceremonies, a number of different locations are available, each one enhanced by the gardens that surround it. Photographers, as well as artists love the amazing photo opportunities. In the event of inclement weather, ceremonies are relocated to the barn. With the doors open to the farm's beautiful gardens, Nature continues to provide a picturesque backdrop.
The term "rustic elegance" is often used to define Beech Springs Farm, the perfect spot for those considering a destination Gettysburg wedding, a fundraiser or other special event. The farm is also available as the backdrop for photographing some of life's special moments.
A beautiful garden is a work of heart.....
