Appleton Private Events

A variety of unique historical spaces ideal for your private event.

Private Event Offerings

Appleton Farms, a one thousand-acre property located on the North Shore of Massachusetts, is known for its preserved New England charm. Spring events will be backdropped by blooming wildflowers, songbirds, and the deep greens of the working farm. In the fall, the venue will offer cascades of oranges and yellows when the ancient Maple trees that line many of the fields change for the new season. Our pastoral vistas, historic farmhouse, hours of walking trails, and a wide variety of public programming provide an idyllic setting for gathering groups.

Corporate Volunteer Days

Looking to create a unique experience for your team where you give back and become part of our mission? Appleton Farms is the perfect venue for bringing your team together to get their hands dirty. Varying tasks like trail maintenance, land improvements, garden clean-up, and accessibility projects can be part of a corporate volunteer package. We can also provide a farm-fresh lunch from our kitchen while you are here!

Appleton as a Space to Gather

While Appleton Farms is not a traditional private event venue, we often work with community partners to bring an immersive and unique experience to those looking for a place to gather. Our farmhouse lawn sets a beautiful backdrop for up to 150 guests looking for a weekday event. Want to buy out a specific program? We can help! Private group offerings are available for culinary programs, barnyard adventures, private hikes, and tours.

Workshops can be tailored to your own particular tastes and interests. Offerings change throughout the year and are based on what’s in season at the farm. Topics range from 3-course farm ingredient dinners to sourdough bread baking, to seasonal sweet and savory pies.
