We had our wedding at WGF on October 21st and it was all I have ever dreamed of and more. Carolyn is a fantastic owner and Anthony is great on the ground helping with questions and doing whatever we needed. I cant say enough good about this venue, I highly recommend it!
My husband and I were married at Wild Goose Farm on October 28 2017. The venue is truly beautiful. Our wedding was so much better than anything I could have imaged. We were fortunate enough to enjoy one of the last warm fall days. We had our ceremony outside, facing the pond and our reception in the barn. There are so many options to choose from with this venue. I highly recommend Wild Goose Farm for anyone looking for a venue with rustic charm! Carolyn is a wonderful owner, despite being in California, she is very involved and helpful. Anthony is awesome too! He was more than willing to go out of his way to help with anything we needed or answer any questions we had leading up to the big day. Our guests as well as vendors raved about this venue with its natural beauty and historic feel. My husband and I are already planning to return to the venue in the future for anniversary photos!
Located in historic Shepherdstown, WV ( just 90 minutes from Washington DC and Baltimore), Wild Goose Farm is situated on 170 acres of woodlands and gently rolling hills. The property was founded and maintained by the Shepherd family who oversaw 3 different periods of construction, resulting in an interesting confluence of architectural styles. A wonderful collection of outbuildings - including a Greek Revival inspired springhouse, a stone smoke/meat house, a brick ice shed, and wooden chicken coop - are connected by an extensive network of stone fences, retaining walls, and small roadways. Although the farm has changed hands several times since the 1940s, the essential character and use of the property have not changed. The manor house continued to be used as a retreat by later wealthy owners, including NASA engineer Robert Moss in the 1960s , as well as former West Virginia Governor Caperton in the late 1990s.
Since its beginning in the 1840s, Wild Goose has stood as an elegant backdrop of the genteel life. A beautifully restored barn now completes the essence of rustic elegance. Indeed, the perfect setting for celebrating your special occasion with family and friends . . .
We'd be delighted to arrange a private tour of the grounds. Please call us for more information.
