Bishop Farmstead

Southampton NJ, New Jersey

The Big Red Barn

Constructed in 1932, this vintage barn oversees 12+ acres of native grasslands – a rich habitat for wildflowers, birds and butterflies – and a historic farmhouse built in the 1750s by a second-generation Quaker farmer.  The property is also home to Pinelands Preservation Alliance, whose mission is to protect the natural resources, history and culture of this unique region.

In 2017, the Alliance transformed the barn into a great gathering place. The recently completed renovation brings contemporary comfort and energy efficiency to a setting that still retains its authentic character. For weddings and private celebrations, the “big red barn” opens onto beautiful outdoor spaces for garden ceremonies and cocktails, while the interior is scaled for dinner and dancing for as many as 175 guests.

I am so excited to share with you my experience so far with Bishop Farmstead. We were originally scheduled to have our wedding on September 19, 2020......then Covid happened. Erika and the team worked with me to reschedule for 2021. Although, we didn't get our original Saturday in September they made sure to find a date that worked for both parties. I am beyond thrilled for our upcoming wedding on November 5, 2021. Our event planner, Gina, is doing an amazing job at helping my vision come to life. I think she is almost as excited as me to execute the plan! If you are looking for a barn wedding with modern amenities this is the place for you. Can we talk about the vaulted barn ceiling and gorgeous lighting! That was the big selling point for us. In the beginning of March 2020 right before the big Covid shut down we had our food tasting! TALK ABOUT DELICIOUS! Absolutely everything we had was incredible. My husband and I always find wedding entrees to be kind of blaaahhhh but not here! All the entrees have a special twist that make them so unique. What's even better is that all their ingredients are farm to table and fresh...sometimes picked from their own urban garden! I highly recommend having a wedding at Bishop Farmstead. If the venue isn't your style be sure to check out other JAM catering venues. You won't be disappointed.

My fiancé and I booked our wedding at the Bishop Farmstead for August 2020, but then when the Pandemic hit we needed to change our plans! Erika the wedding venue manager and the other Bishop Farmstead staff have gone above and beyond to communicate and take care of every detail to make sure that you, your guests, and the event staff will all be safe during the wedding, no matter what challenges may appear. A wedding is stressful enough! Good to know that we can trust the JAM staff to take the pandemic seriously and ensure the safety of all. They are also very responsive with their emails and keep all couples up to date with the regularly-changing New Jersey Covid protocols and other updates about the venue. I highly recommend this venue! Not to mention the barn and grounds are gorgeous and the food is delish!

The barn is breathtaking! From the first time I saw the barn I knew that our wedding had to be here. Everyone associated with the venue was super friendly. The exclusive caterer, Jeffrey A Miller Catering, was amazing and the food was delicious. Erika from JAM was terrific to work with and worked so hard to make everything just perfect for our special day!

We had a tour in November with Erica and fell absolutely in love with the venue! They did such a great job renovating it and we can not wait until our wedding in September!
