Shady Lane Farm... Rustic Maine Barn Weddings, Maine Farm Weddings and Events.

Rustic Beauty in the Portland Area

Just 35 minutes from downtown Portland, Shady Lane Farm is a focal point in the historic district of New Gloucester, Maine. Its 60 plus acres of woods and walking paths adjoin other historic farms, making it a uniquely expansive and peaceful rural landscape.


The farm was the 19th century homestead of Maine's leading apple expert, and picturesque heirloom apple trees border the surrounding pastures.


In addition to its abundance of preserved farmland, the historic district of New Gloucester boasts a charming village center: the town hall, library and church are all within half a mile from Shady Lane Farm. The recently revitalized Village Store, with gourmet foods, fine wines, and dining area, is a stone's throw away, as is a lovely bed and breakfast. See our preferred vendors page for more information.


The grounds include a pond, gardens, a spacious lawn, open fields, and a rustic arbor. The Federal style house has an attached apartment which serves as a bride/bridal party dressing room.


Shady Lane Farm can host 200 plus people at your Maine Farm Wedding or Event. The barn is unheated, so is appropriate for use from June through September.
