The Mast Farm Inn vegetable and flower gardens have been organically grown since the summer of 1997. We have chosen to grow without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides for a variety of reasons. Primarily, we are aware that the use of chemicals on agriculture is damaging both to human populations as well as to all other life around us. With the use of organic practices, including raised beds and companion plantings, we have created mini ecosystems in the garden that are full of animal and plant diversity. Our soil is healthy and therefore our plants are as well, and we are able to serve the freshest and highest quality food to our guests.

We grow a wide variety of primarily heirloom and open pollinated plants including such staples as lettuce, spinach, carrots, peas, beets, basil and other herbs, raspberries, tomatoes, beans, squash, and potatoes. In the spring, summer and fall we also have flowers galore throughout the garden and the rest of the grounds.

PLEASE NOTE
• All weddings taking place at the Inn require a contract no matter how simple, and require the advance notice to, and authorization of our wedding manager. Among many of the sound reasons, there are legal, fire marshal, and insurance prescriptions and constraints involved in operating an Inn vs. simply renting a stand alone cabin or detached home. Each room cottage and cabin has its own legal occupancy limits, and we have a global occupancy limit. The same holds true for locations and sites on the estate. In practical fact, even if the only people in attendance at the wedding and in the room are you, your spouse, an officiant, and photographer and assistant, serving as witnesses, we do not allow it. We are on The National Register of Historic Places, and quite averse to damage to property or furnishings, and as part of Historic Hotels of America and Select Registry we uphold high standards. Other risks include your wedding or group spilling out into the common areas of the Inn, Estate and Grounds and creating what other guests might sense or experience as a disturbance. If you want a 100% self-produced wedding, we recommend you rent a private owner cabin, cottage or home.
