Testimonials and Photos

“Using Updike Farmstead for (our first offsite family picnic) was a turnkey experience because of their professionalism in handling such events. From start to finish, they are always ahead of the game and anticipate your needs. Their preferred vendor list is well vetted.”
Steve Pieretti, Nassau Club


“We could not have picked a better place than the Updike Farmstead for our ad agency’s summer party. It’s six acres of idyllic farmland were the perfect backdrop for our Woodstock-themed event. The privacy of the location, the attentiveness of the Historical Society of Princeton, and the charm of the farmhouse all blended together to create a truly memorable event that people are still talking about.”
-CDM Princeton


“The Updike Farmstead was the perfect setting for our son’s wedding celebration party. Our guests enjoyed being able to tour the beautifully restored farmhouse, stand on the back porch and embrace the peaceful setting of the property, and roam the grounds under a gorgeous October sky.”
-Beth Dumont, Hopewell Resident


“The Farm may be just a few minutes drive from downtown Princeton, yet you feel as if you were transported into a completely different world — simple, very real and beautiful. My daughter and her friends made Victorian jewelry, climbed trees and went treasure hunting. It was an afternoon full of fun and happiness, one of the most memorable birthday parties we have ever had.”
-Magda Rittenhouse, Princeton Resident


“At what might have been the inaugural social event at the Updike Farmstead, the Historical Society of Princeton hosted the wedding of my grandson on July 3, 2011 at the farm. The couple, neither of whom has lived anywhere other than California, wanted to come east to get married at the Updike family farm… HSP was most helpful… Their full and enthusiastic support throughout the entire process was both welcome and much appreciated.”
-Donald C. Updike
