Your guests will feel special.

If you’re tired of the generic hotel ballroom setting that doesn’t represent the truly unique nature of your company, organization or guests, look no further than Harvest View Barn at Hershey Farms.

From the balcony overlooking a picturesque pond to the majestic fireplace and original stonewalls, Harvest View Barn provides the perfect blend of rustic elegance and tranquil scenery, giving your guests an experience like no other. Originally built in the 1800’s, our beautifully restored barn offers the ideal setting for many size gatherings and is conveniently accessible from Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster and York.

The Barn

Originally built in the 1800’s, our barn has accommodated more than a century of joyful memories. Beautifully restored in 2014, the barn is an exclusive, elegant venue that will elevate your event to be a notch above the rest.

The lower level of the barn features a grand fireplace and original stone walls. This spacious, open area is designed as a space to mingle during your event. A sweeping staircase leads to the second floor where original wooden beams and weatherboarding provide the backdrop for dining. Two sets of French doors open to a balcony, which overlooks a placid pond graced by swans, and a fountain offers the perfect backdrop for photographs.

Available to accommodate 200 guests, the barn is climate-controlled and handicapped-accessible with modern restrooms. It also features a bar area and facilities for a caterer.
