Your most special day...
"We initially started with Emily Stricko at the Farmer's Daughter but was the room was a bit tight, so she suggested that we upgrade to the Silos Ballroom which was perfect for our Cocktail Party Wedding. We made a seamless transition to Heather Bogen. Heather was wonderful. We didn't want a traditional wedding. We wanted more of cocktail party style, and she helped us transform our vision into the perfect party. She even "nudged" us to add some bridal touches which were perfect! Ruth, Marco and Julia were fantastic. The day I checked into the hotel was the same day as my drop off appointment. Ruth and Marco were waiting for us in the lobby. It felt so nice to be greeted and go over the plan for the next day. They loved our Cocktail Party Style. We received so many compliments on the food. We received the most compliments on the filet, mashed potatoes and the salmon skewers, cake and smores bar. There wasn't a single piece of cake left! Delicious!
The preferred vendors list was extremely helpful. Like I said, we were very bridal so having some vendors at our fingertips was convenient. We used Jolie Salon for hair and makeup and Tim Williams Band for entertainment. Both wonderful to work with. I'm writing a letter to the GM as a follow up to our wedding. Every single person we spoke to at Normandy was so caring and made sure every single detail was in place. All we had to do was show up. The entire experience was perfect. I can't think of one thing I would have done differently. Cheers!"

"I just wanted to thank you and the whole team at Normandy for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. Every single person we worked with at the hotel this weekend was absolutely amazing and so helpful. The event ran incredibly smoothly from start to finish, and Marco and Latisha were on the ball with every single detail. We got so many compliments from our guests saying that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. If there is anywhere else I can leave a review to support you guys please let me know. Thank you again!!!"

"Brianne Sheahan was awesome! It was a pleasure working with her from before we were even engaged up through securing our date with Normandy! JoAnne Nelson was such a pleasure to work with! She was also super responsive and friendly when we asked way too many questions! Marco and Heather did a fantastic job of making the day run smoothly. We didn't have to worry about anything the entire day and we always had food in front of us and a drink in our hands! All of the food was incredible! Hats off to the chefs! Working with Normandy from start to finish was incredible. Everybody was super helpful and responsive through every step of the process. Normandy is truly a one stop shop which is fantastic, especially when you are planning a wedding from across the country. It was great not really having to worry about anything day of the wedding! Special shoutouts to JoAnne, Marco and Heather."

"WOW! Words cannot describe the experience we had with Normandy Farm. We had our wedding in the grand garden and grand ballroom (jaw dropping, especially once we added the drapes!!) Our wedding was definitely the wedding of the century in our eyes and that was all thanks to Normandy Farm.
From the very beginning in the planning process, we were constantly in contact with our event coordinator, Ashley. She responded very quickly, chatted on the phone whenever we needed, and always had the answers to our questions. I, as the bride, had a lot of requests and concerns and she handled it ALL! I was so stressed but to have Ashley in my corner made all the difference. She would keep us on track and be super transparent with us at all times.
The weekend of the wedding was unreal. The day of, I had two lovely ladies assist us and our wedding party. Ruth and Heather constantly checked on us and took care of everything. Whatever we needed, they made sure we were looked after. They made the ceremony go extremely smooth no matter how hectic things got. The venue provided them for no cost, and it makes such a difference! They treated all of us like royalty and they made the wedding day that much more special.
The FOOD! Our guests could not stop raving about it. Cocktail hour was insane!! My husband and I kept saying how we wish we could have been guests at our own wedding. Cocktail hour was stationed instead of butlered and honestly, if you have a choice, do stations!! Guests were able to get as much food as they wanted and there was no complaints about hunger whatsoever. We added the cheeseburger slider bar and that was one of the best decisions we could have made. The dinner was unreal. Absolutely everyone was in awe of the portion sizes and how yummy everything was. The food got served quickly and HOT which is a huge deal! The mini ice cream cones for dessert was a hit! Then after dinner we added the donut wall, pretzel wall, and popcorn bar. I can't even begin to explain how happy that made the guests.. we almost had to roll everyone out!! And if that's not enough, we hosted an after party with all sorts of late night bites. Chicken nuggets, pizza bites, tater tots, nachos, you name it. Our guests (and ourselves) were amazed by the quality, consistency and urgency that they provided. Also, the bar was amazing! The bartenders were slinging drinks all night and no one was empty handed.
All in all, you cannot go wrong with Normandy Farm. My husband and I, our families and guests will remember that weekend forever. I wish it wasn't over and I wish I could relive it. You will not regret it!"

"From the start, Normandy Farm was absolutely incredible! We decided to change venues and our date due to restrictions and this was THE best decision we made. Normandy is stunning, the food is fantastic and the organization is impressive. We planned the wedding in less than four months and every step was easy. Shout out to Heather for her assistance with all questions and quick responses. The venue's flexibility was unheard of and they are willing to help in any way possible. There are many people working together to make your event special, and special it was! Truly, Lee and I appreciate everything and we had an absolutely beautiful wedding day!"

"This venue was amazing. Our wedding coordinator: JoAnne Nelson was great! She helped us with every step of the way. She even helped out when COVID became a part of our wedding. They were very understanding, and made every effort to make our day perfect. They were very helpful with dropping of all of my items for the wedding day, and they did a wonderful job at displaying my items. On the day of our wedding we had a maitre 'd and a bridal attendant. They were amazing.They even came outside when us girls were taking pictures to see if we needed anything. I couldn't recommend this place enough. Our guests raved about the venue, especially the food. The best thing was that the bridal suite was big enough for us girls to get ready, They even had bar stools too and everyone loved that everything was in one place: the ceremony, reception, and the hotel rooms! If you want a rustic theme and all in one place, have your wedding here!"

""This place is a diamond. The gentleman at reception was so pleasant. The bartender was hilarious. It was the last call for the kitchen, and he was super efficient. We had just come from a funeral, and we needed to laugh.
They have a fantastic event space and hotel."

"We spent the weekend here to attend a wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel. Checkin was quick and efficient. We stayed in a double Queen in the main building. The room was very comfortable and located in the same building as the wedding ceremony and reception (held in the Grand Ballroom). All the staff were very friendly and attentive. We used the fitness center. While not very big, we were able to get in an adequate workout. There are 2 elliptical machines, 2 treadmills, 2 bikes, and a rack with free weights ranging from 5 to 50 pounds. There is a large indoor pool and jacuzzi. The breakfast on Saturday was included with the room rate and consisted of a very nice selection of scrambled eggs, french toast, fruit, and pastries. The facilities are beautiful and a very lovely place for a wedding. The food at the cocktail hour and the reception was very good and service was exceptional."

"Our family absolutely loves the Normandy Farm Hotel. It is a very charming and quaint resort in Blue Bell Pennsylvania. We love how the resort converted original farm houses on the property, that date back to the 1800's, into absolutely gorgeous suites. The upkeep, care and professionalism by the staff is on par with any four star resort that we have traveled to. Onsite pool is also a plus and The Farmers Daughter restaurant on property is AMAZING!”

There was not a person that crossed my path that I didn’t have a “can do attitude” and this just made for a great experience.

"And a "Happy 13th Birthday" celebration it was! Thank you Farmer's Daughter for creating the most beautiful atmosphere and delicious dinner. Our daughter's birthday dinner was wonderful from appetizers to dessert! Thank you!
- Rachel Vance
"Our family held a 90th birthday celebration for our Mom at The Farmer’s Daughter Restaurant last Sunday, December 26th. My wife, my son, and I were the first to arrive. Our son has physically disabilities and uses a wheelchair to get around. While we were waiting for the other guests to arrive, your Executive Chef, Mtele Abubakar greeted us. Without hesitation, he asked our son, Michael, if he would like something to eat. The chef personally returned with a massive omelet that he had prepared. Michael devoured it.
We just wanted to let you know that Mr. Abubakar’s concern for our son did not go unnoticed. In most cases in the outside world, Michael is usually the “afterthought.” The personal attention that the chef gave to our son was greatly appreciated. I know that it may be viewed as a minor thing, but it meant the world to us.
The chef was gracious and cheerful with everyone whom he met. By the way, the food was incredibly good. It was a great visit that everyone enjoyed. You are fortunate to have a great chef who is also a class act."

"First time dining at the Farmer's Daughter. Lunch menu was extensive - something for all 4 of us to enjoy. The Grilled Octopus and pretzels were great starters. The sandwiches were delicious (the short rib, pulled pork and corned beef were all great) as was the salad. Highly recommend giving this place a try - you won't be disappointed. Already planning to go back for dinner in the near future!"

"The Farmer's Daughter, Blue Bell, never disappoints. The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is wonderful. The entire staff is friendly and approachable and, most importantly, accommodating to someone with special needs. Our family has had breakfast, lunch, dinner and holiday buffets at this restaurant and we have always been extremely pleased."
