First, read our Events Policies and Procedures carefully. This document details  your responsibilities when planning an event to be held at the farm. It is intended to provide interested individuals or groups with helpful information and guidelines pertaining to farm-based events.

Then, contact us at 717-245-1969 or  farm at dickinson.edu with your requested date/time and a brief summary of your proposed event. Please allow up to one week for calendar coordination.

Once the farm confirms that your proposed date/time is available, you will be asked to fill out and submit an Event Request Form.

We kindly request at least two week’s Dickinson Farm Lower Barn and Corn Crib advanced notice for events. We take reservations months ahead of time: if you’re planning an event for 2013 and are considering the farm as your venue, get in touch with us at farm at dickinson.edu today!

We will contact you to confirm available times and to offer our assistance with the coordination of logistics. From May-November (especially September and October), our events calendar fills up very quickly. Events are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
