Weddings & Events at PPA's Headquarters

PPA has opened it’s restored barn and conference center for weddings and other catered events.


PPA completed renovations of its historic dairy barn in 2019. This rustic venue is now the site of special events, conferences and educational programs. Weddings held here generate financial support for PPA’s mission.

The historic barn and gardens at the Pinelands Preservation Alliance are available to rent from PPA for events like weddings that are catered by Jeffrey A. Miller Catering.

Constructed in 1932, this vintage barn oversees 12-plus acres of native grasslands, a historic farmhouse built in the 1753 by a second-generation Quaker farmer, and PPA’s 70-acre Rancocas Creek Farm. The property is also home to Pinelands Preservation Alliance, whose mission is to protect the natural resources, history and culture of this unique region.

Our historic red barn has been transformed into a great gathering place. The barn offers contemporary comfort and energy efficiency yet 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 200 guests.

A wedding that gives back! The rental of the Bishop Farmstead for your special day benefits the Pinelands Preservation Alliance’s mission to preserve the natural and historical resources of New Jersey’s Pinelands.
