Treasured notes from our guests...

Jayne and Bill,
What a delightful evening we had on Sunday! We must live ‘right’ to have gotten the perfect combination of pleasant weather, good friends, creative food, spectacular surroundings and friendly atmosphere to make for such a memorable occasion. Congratulations on the achievement of your flower-beautiful farm and thank you for the presenting it to the public so we may also enjoy it.

Hi Jayne & Bill,
I thought it was a perfect evening -loved the food, company, & entertainment. I've showed the menu to several folks - after convincing them - that we eat it ALL ( no, we didn't have to select one choice from each group), & shared your name & web site with the friends who also thought it would be a unique way to enjoy our "country" here in PA.

Just wanted to say again what a completely lovely time we had at the dinner. Your farm and gardens, the food, the music...it really was a most memorable event and we've been telling everyone about it. We are very much looking forward to coming back in September.
The only thing that we might suggest would be to make the menu a bit less meat centered and a bit more garden centered. We expected produce to be a bit more prominently featured on at least some of the dishes, especially mid summer...but even the salad featured quite a bit of meat and even duck fat in the dressing.
We loved it all the same, and thank you so much for all the hard work it takes to organize such an evening.
See you in September!
Barb and Scott S.
Jayne and Bill,
Thank YOU BOTH for a lovely evening on Sunday! It really was magical! What a memorable experience! From the drinks on the deck, the lovely table and flowers, the meal, the music, the outdoor concert - all were such a great time! Your gardens are spectacular!!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home and property with us, and for your warm hospitality! The two of you are such gracious hosts! The chefs, servers, etc. all did a great job!
Best of wishes for your future events at Beech Springs Farm. Please keep us posted.
Have a great day,
Lee and Joann S.
My husband and I attended a farm to table dinner at the farm last month, May 2015. The food and "entertainment" were great. We had General and Mrs. Robert E. Lee and a strolling musician singing and playing a historic type guitar. We also had different wine pairings with each new tasting course.
The wine was local, much of the food was either provided by Beech Springs farm or other local farms. Also a perfect night to see the barn renovation and the beautiful gardens.
We could not have asked for anything else. Had a wonderful time. We recommend these dinners.
Dear Jayne, Our Farmer,
Thank you for all your hard work. Terry and I love Beech Springs CSA and will definitely return. We especially loved the bok choi, shallots, leeks, beets, raspberries, honey, watermelon, zinnias...well, everything. And being able to purchase goat cheese and mushrooms was a nice bonus.
May the winter be a short one.
Thank YOU and your dedicated staff for making the CSA such a delightful experience for us all. Your efforts were A+++!!
Having 1/4 share gave me more than enough vegetables for a week. Thank you for loading me up with more than I deserved:)
Have a great winter break! You deserve it!
I'm emotional with gratitude even writing this. Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough. The day was perfect- everything I ever wanted and dreamed of. Everyone felt like they were part of the important day...which is what I'd hoped for. The vendors you recommended were all amazing and a joy to work with. I got the photos yesterday and couldn't be happier with the memories of that day. I feel like you were the reason the day was perfect. Your attention to detail and calmness...perfect.
If you'd like any of the photos for the website/FB please let me know. I'd love to tell others about my day:-)
All my best and much love...
Thank you for the thoughtful email. We should be the ones thanking you! We had a great time at the wedding and every step of the way we were so thankful to have you helping us. We are not the type of couple who enjoys wedding planning and being the center of attention and you have no idea how your patience and warm personality helped us get through it! You definitely go above and beyond and you were always so honest, easy to talk to, and supportive. We feel like you are part of the family now! Please also pass along our thanks to your mother again for our guestbook. It looks great framed and hanging on our wall!
Our pictures should be available soon so we will be sure to pass them along. Keep in touch!
Many thanks again,
Katrina and Devin
We are so grateful for Beech Springs Farm and being able to celebrate our wedding and marriage in a place so beautiful. As well as for all that you and Jane did to make our day special. I hope that you truly enjoyed the day as much as we did! We haven't gotten any pictures back from the photographer yet but will make sure to share some of them with you when we do. I can hardly wait to see them!
Again, thanks for everything and all the well wishes. Best of the luck to the farm and all of your future wedding events!!
Jordyn & Josh
As a Caterer, we couldn't have been more happy with Beech Springs Farm. The gardens, grounds and Barn are serene and absolutely perfect for special occasions. Jayne and Bill (owners) are on hand and willing to help however they can, and Stephanie - the coordinator - is in herself a pot of gold. Stephanie has a finesse that isn't often found in the event industry. She is always timely with her communication, and coordinates the day seamlessly. From her welcoming hug to her departing hug; both vendors and guests are at ease with Stephanie's expertise. We can't wait to return!

Hi Stephanie and Jayne!
I hope all is well and you are staying dry! Now that we've settled into married life I wanted to extend our sincerest thank you to you both for making our day so special. From the moment we met each of you I knew our day would be seamless and beautiful.
Thank you Stephanie for your amazing coordination talents, keeping me calm and being able to create a gorgeous indoor ceremony at the last minute. You have a special gift!
Jayne, our guests continue to comment on the beauty you've created in your gardens and barn. I now feel the rain made our day more beautiful and would tell any bride, let it rain!
Thank you again for all your help in what was such a wonderful experience and day!
Heather & Nick
We cannot thank you enough for all of your help with the wedding. The day was absolutely perfect and we owe a big part of that to you! Ben and I were just talking the other day about how we wouldn't have been able to handle it all on our own, and that you were a godsend in the entire planning process. Please also extend a thank you to Jody, as she was a doll and very helpful as well on our wedding day.
We fell in love with Beech Springs Farm the day that we came to see it, and that love has only grown. We are so honored to have been able to spend the best day of our lives at such an amazingly beautiful place.
I wish you and Jayne all the best and hopefully we will see you again in the future!
Tracy and Ben
Where to begin? You were such a help with us and I can never thank you enough! From dealing with my crazy questions ;), the guest gift bags, and helping SO much that morning. My mom said that you were a huge blessing to her that day. Beech springs was everything we wanted-upscale rustic! We're still receiving compliments from guests :)
Still floating on cloud nine just thinking about it ;)
Thank you again Stephanie! You are truly the sweetest!
We were absolutely blessed to have Colette and Joe's special day at your gorgeous farm! Despite the rain and maybe even because of it, we all felt like the barn provided us with a beautiful and intimate space to gather and celebrate. Our guests were well attended to and we received many wonderful comments regarding the venue.
Our daughter was married under the beautiful Maple tree at the farm this past May and it was wonderful! Keep in mind your wedding does not have to be rustic to enjoy this venue. We received so many compliments about the venue indoors and out and how beautifully decorated the barn was. Our guests enjoyed strolling around the farm grounds and the many photo opportunities at the venue. We worked very closely with the wedding planner (Stephanie) and provided her with lots of pictures of what our daughter and her fiance really wanted. Stephanie offers suggestions for decorations and set-up, some of which we used and some we didn't. Don't be afraid to let Stephanie know what you really want or don't want, she is very helpful where she can be and added so many special touches to the decorations that we would have never thought of. Admittedly we too were concerned when Stephanie pre-warned us about the volume for the DJ/music (needed to be reduced due to neighborhood complaints) but really it was not an issue, we did not have anyone at the wedding complain that they could not hear the DJ or the music. I believe our daughter and her husband had a wonderful, memorable wedding day at the farm! Thank you Jayne and Stephanie for making their day so special!
My daughter just got married at Beech Springs Farm and the venue was absolutely beautiful! Jayne, the owner is a very sweet and kind lady. Stephanie, the wedding coordinator, is so very warm and helpful person. She is a very calm and compassionate, through the whole process. Making sure everything runs smoothly. They set up EVERYTHING the way you want it.
Our guests were very happy with the way they had things set up, to the way she kept things moving. The guests had no problem hearing the DJ or the music. Our DJ was able to do his job in the appropriate manor. Stephanie was also very helpful to the DJ. Stephanie did an AWESOME job! It was a stress-free and hassle-free experience, with having a cooperative wedding coordinator like Stephanie. Thank you so much Beech Springs Farm for the amazing experience and gorgeous venue!
Dear Jayne and Stephanie,
We cannot thank you enough for the use of the barn and your services. The wedding was beyond our wildest dreams--thank you! Words do not even begin to convey the depth of our gratitude. Thank you for opening your home and your hearts to us.
Sara and Woodrow
Your venue and Stephanie are amazing, and people should recognize what a wonderful service you provide! My family really enjoyed meeting you and your husband, and we really enjoyed the bonfire. It was the best part of the night! Hopefully we will see you soon, we would love to keep in touch!
Jayne and Stephanie,
It was such a pleasure working with the both of you. Thank you for your help in planning our wedding along the way. Everything turned out great! Thank you for making it such a happy and memorable day.
Chelsea and Zachary Z.
We wanted to thank everyone at Beech Springs Farm for making our special day amazing!! Everything was beautiful and we appreciate everything you guys did for us!!
Miranda and Andy
We were all so thrilled with the wedding. It was just wonderful. The barn was beautiful and even with the rain, it worked out very well. Everyone just raved about the barn and the gardens and everything.
Thanks so much again. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue. Everything was absolutely perfect!
Tracey and Kevin
How do we ever say "thank you" enough? From the perfect venue all the way to the kind note and beautiful ornament you sent. We are assured that we couldn't have chosen better people to work with or a more beautiful place to get married. We are forever grateful and hope to cross paths again soon!
Kelly and Dustin
Dear Jayne and Bill,
Thank you both so much for allowing us to holder wedding at your stunning barn. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue and gracious hosts. Although the weather was very wet leading up to the big day, we both agreed we wouldn't have changed a single thing!
Thank you also for bearing with us during a stressful time and answering the many questions that arose. You were more than accommodating and made the experience unforgettable! Please keep in touch!
Emily and Noah
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say "thank you" for sharing your beautiful slice of the world with us! Our wedding turned out perfect and we are so glad that we met you. You are doing amazing things and have inspired us to dream of what our ten acres can become.
Thanks so much,
Lea and John
Jayne and Stephanie,
We cannot even begin to thank you both and your husband for sharing your amazing house/barn with us. From the first day we met you guys, you were more than welcoming to us and made us feel like part of the family.
Our whole process, from planning, to meetings, to set-up to the "big day" has been a dream come true and more than we could of ever asked for!
Our wedding day was nothing short of perfect. Thanks for everything you all did. We hope to continue to always be part of your family, as we'll always keep you close to our heart.
With lots of love,
Gina and Matt
Last night , the Civil War Barn Dance was a marvel of music, dance, connections, family, friends , fun and some formalities, and not-so-much formalities, too!
Thank you for creating the place and space of beauty, caring, nurturing, sustenance and nourishment for events to have a place to happen! and food, as well!
Your hard work benefits so many, and is greatly appreciated. My mother, Theresa, and I had a lovely time! I'm so glad that your husband told me about the delightful event.
Kind regards and big hugs,
Hi Jayne and Bill:
We just want you to know how much we enjoyed the celebration for Pamela and Maria last week!
And your farm is magnificent! Everything--the barn, the gardens, the home! Wow! So if we know of anyone looking for a venue, we'll send them your way!
Norman and Carolyn
Dear Jayne and Bill,
Thank you so much for offering your historic barn for the HGAC Civil War Barn Dance.
Even though the weather was challenging, it did not damper everyone's spirits. We had a wonderful time and appreciate your generous offering of your barn.
What a delightful farm you have! Thank you so much for your cordial hospitality and fabulous lunch. The Women's Circle at Homewood was thrilled to be here on Monday and enjoy the beauty of Beech Springs Farm.
Your gardens are exquisite and breathtaking. We are all in awe of your energy, imagination, artistic flair and your incredible talents.
I hope to see you in or around Gettysburg at some future time.
Blessings of peace and love,
I know you had CSA after we left so you may not be able to read this until this evening, but I didn’t want any time to go by before I thanked you again for a LOVELY day at your spectacular property. It was so appropriate for a garden club to have their event in such a beautiful setting. Your home and gardens are an inspiration to all of us.
Rest on your laurels this evening, Jayne. You deserve them!
Attached are 4 photos that I took at the wonderful barn dance you hosted on October 5th. That was a most beautiful and memorable occasion for me. You and your husband have created a fantastically special place for weddings, parties, and Civil War era dances. Thank you for being such gracious and considerate hosts.
