October 2014 - We were there for our daughter’s wedding, Mandi McLoughlin, Friday, 10/17/14. Everyone was unbelievable. I would really like to be able to thank a couple of people but don’t know how. Rich Crooks was our organizer for all the reception activities. He was so nice, and right there all the time. He even took alot of teasing about his name and just laughed. Also, Ursula (don’t know her last name) was such a nice person and worked so hard all night attending to the bride and groom’s needs. She packed everything up for us after the wedding and brought it up to the room along with Rich Crooks. The shuttle driver on Friday night for the rehearsal dinner and going back and forth to the restaurant, was really nice and friendly with all the passengers and always had a smile on his face. We could not have asked for better people to be there for us and feel they should be recognized for all their hard work. Please make sure this gets to the right people so they are given proper credit for a job well done! I would be happy to send letters to whoever is in charge and wouldn’t mind sending emails myself to Rich and Ursula especially. Thanks for the beautiful place, the beautiful wedding and all the attention that was given to us. Marie McLoughlin
August 2014 - Our oldest daughter, Melissa Maher married Daniel Keehn on August 15, 2014. I can’t thank you all enough for your excellent care and service that your staff showed throughout their wedding and our visit. Your staff took such care in each and every detail with class, warmth and welcome. Thank you for being so professional and making our special day perfect. I would highly recommend Normandy Farm to anyone looking for a wedding venue. With sincerest appreciation, Beverly A. Maher
July 2014 - This is a letter I am very excited to write. I hope everyone involved at Normandy Farm gets to read this. My daughter Molly McMackin / Cleary was married on July 18th 2014 at 5:30pm. Let me take you on a little journey. Molly & Kyle started their search on where to celebrate their big day. They planned to see 3 places. They saw Normandy Farm first. They fell in love with it and the decision was made. I can only say it continued to get better the entire time. During this time we met the most incredible group of professionals. Let me start with the Director of Sales & Marketing. She is an amazing woman, very knowledgable,professional,helpful and approachable. I can not say enough about how much she helped us. She is THE BEST !!!! Due to her we had our Bridal Shower at Normandy Farm. It was PERFECT ! We had the amazing Sunday brunch, where we met Donna, she really helped to make it special !! Everyone had a great time! Next is Joanne the Wedding Coordinator what a wonderful woman she is. She helped Molly so much with every little detail! With her happy and upbeat personality she made it fun ! Now onto the flowers….Steve from Willow and Thistle is awesome . It is easy to see he and his staff truly love their job! He went beyond our expectations ! The flowers were awesome !! Tyler Boye sent Carlos and Jennifer on her Wedding Day to capture every minute! They were so much fun!! Can’t wait to see the pictures !!!!!! Her D.J. Was Chris from Schaffer Sound. What a great job he did. The dance floor was full all night. The photo booth was a big hit everyone loved the big back drop for large groups!! The food was great !!! All our guests raved about their meals !!! On the day of the Wedding , both Ursala and Rich helped to direct us the entire day. We never had to wonder what do we do next or where should we be. They guided us, they were so helpful. The reception was a dream. Rich was on top of everything the entire time !! Our table waiter Steve, what a great man.. He did an amazing job. He was very attentive and friendly. Ok let me just say due to all the above people and many others we had THE BEST WEDDING EVER !!! Everyone of our guests had a great time and could not say enough about every detail at Normandy Farm . Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and hard work to make their day…a day they will never forget !!! Happiest Mother of the Bride! Sue McMackin
March 2014 - My wife and I were there for a wedding Saturday night. After we checked in, we went to the bar. I had to go back to my room for something. I knew I was on the second floor but couldn’t remember my room number. I asked one of your housekeeping if they could help me. She said yes and went to a phone and called the front desk and handed me the phone. Within seconds I was told my room number. Were just sorry that were about 2 hours away, otherwise we would be there every weekend. My wife must have said 10 times how clean this place is. Thank you for the greatest and cleanest place we ever stayed at. I would highly recommend you place to anyone.
February 2014 – We came to stay at Normandy Farms because we were without power after the snowstorm for three days. I was able to get a room on Thursday, the staff could not have been more welcoming and when I needed to stay an extra night (a Friday) it was no problem. The best compliment I can give is that even though there’s no place like home Normandy Farms came pretty close! Thank you!
January 2014 - Marissa & the Staff at Normandy Farm, Thank you for all your time and help making “The PCC’s” a true success. Our Staff is still talking about what a great evening it was. We have received many compliments on the food, service and friendliness of your entire team. Once again thank you so very much for helping us to host a great party! – Philadelphia Country Club Employee Relations Committee
January 2014 – My girlfriend and I chose the Farmer’s Daughter for our special Sunday Brunch outing – & we were thrilled! The bellinis and omelets were especially outstanding!
December 2013 - A Special Place. My husband and I went to The Farmer’s Daughter to celebrate his birthday. We eat early so our reservation was for 5pm. It felt like we “owned” the dining room since we were the first couple there. The filet mignon, half of a twice baked potato and broccoli rapinni (?) and halibut with roasted mixed mini veggies and quinoa were delicious and served piping hot. The room was decorated with subtle seasonal displays and the stems of the orchids were wrapped with tiny while lights. It was simple and beautiful. The rustic table made me relax as did the sweet/tart whiskey sour. My husband loved his martini. We look forward to going back.
December 2013 – We had a wonderful time on Dec 31. Had dinner with friends for our holiday celebration. Brian was our waiter and he is awesome. Want to request him every time. We were there for a round 3 hours just having a ball. The food was fantastic and the service phenomenal.
December 2013 - Stayed here Sunday 12.22….really good service at the bar by Christi and Frank assured our stay was top notch …..just booked Christmas night as the result…these guys get customer service!
December 2013 - My boyfriend and I had only stayed at Normandy Farm before for weddings but we decided to stay there for our Christmas visit back home to Philadelphia and it did not disappoint. Piped in Christmas music, beautiful Christmas lights, free Breakfast buffet and a vibrant bar scene made for a great holiday! Very clean and comfortable rooms and also an indoor pool and Jacuzzi for relaxing.
November 2013 – Stayed here for one night after a wedding reception. The Wedding reception – AMAZING. It was held in the barn location part. Cocktail hour was cute and easy to mingle with such tasty food. We then went on to the meal, which was held inside the barn and was beautifully decorated, with a great atmosphere and lighting. The food was great and staff serving and at the bar, so friendly. I stayed in one of the little cottage suites. There was initially a mix up as they tried to charge us for two nights and charge us more as we hadn’t wanted a suite (and booked through laterooms) the desk staff were a bit dismissive regarding this, and we have a lot of documentation to prove cost/location. So it was resolved and suite was large, with a lovely bathroom. We had a brunch the next day as part of the wedding and again – the food was really good, with a wide variety. Normandy farm is super pretty, with a lovely feel and on the whole, nice friendly staff. If I was in the area again I would definitely stay. They definitely helped make the wedding the amazing event it was.
November 2013 - Thank you very much for helping us have the perfect wedding. We love every detail that was done. We could have not been happier with the service.
November 2013 – Needed a nice place for my fathers funeral dinner so only had a few days to make arrangements. Could not have been more happy with everything about Normandy Farms. From the moment I called for info until I paid the bill, this venue went over and beyond. Very attentive and accommodating since we went from an expected 40 people to over 70, buffet food was outstanding, atmosphere warm and inviting. Definitely recommend and will definitely return.
October 2013 – The venue was absolutely beautiful and we were able to use the Silo’s Garden because the sky opened up and was so sunny! This venue is perfect for that rusitc wedding you are looking for!
October 2013 -The entire team at Normandy was extremely professional and willing to work with me and my family in our planning process. Our coordinator kept us on track and the service on the day of was amazing. I felt comfortable and everything went smoothly!
October 2013 – Maura and the staff at Normandy Farm were always super responsive and even the night before the wedding replied to my frantic emails at 11 pm! The venue itself was beautiful, the food was the best ive ever had. Except at the tasting the sea bass was amazing and the filet mignon was nothing exception, however on the wedding day it was the complete opposite! the filet mignon was AMAZING but the sea bass was alright.
September 2013 - My first born was getting married at the Blue Bell Country Club and this hotel is 2 minutes from the venue. Best place to stay ever! I had booked a year ago and had a lovely room but due to family medical problems, I needed a microwave and fridge. Since the room did not have this, they moved us to a great looking suite with no extra fee! They made sure we had everything we needed..the wedding was awesome, and the buffet was delish. We also made use of the bar after the wedding and the staff could not have been any kinder…will be back for just a quiet stay with husband.
September 2013 – The staff is professional and accommodating. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at Normandy and everything went very smoothly as planned. The hotel rooms are comfortable and made for an easy one stop shop for us and our guests. My guests have raved about the food and atmosphere and I’d highly recommend Normandy to others!
September 2013 - Such a beautiful place! Normandy Farms took great care to make sure our wedding day was perfect. We had our ceremony, reception, and after party all at the hotel and absolutely loved the convenience of having everything at one site.
August 2013 - Having our wedding at Normandy Farm was a dream come true! Not only is it a beautiful property, but we were able to provide our guests with the convenience of having the ceremony, reception and hotel all in one place! Every single thing was incredible. Normandy made sure that every decoration and every moment was perfectly planned and executed. I can honestly say that I was extremely happy with how the day went and I don’t have one negative to say. We were facing stormy weather all day and Normandy allowed me to make the final call of whether we wanted to move forward with an outdoor or indoor ceremony. I really wanted it outside and they allowed us to do it there, while still having the inside area ready to go as a backup. We were able to process outside and when it started to rain, we had a smooth transition into the ballroom and picked up right where we left off. It made the evening fun and didn’t affect any part of the night! Every staff member was wonderful, accommodating, and professional. I had the pleasure of working with Maura throughout the planing process and she was FABULOUS! She was very responsive and worked very hard to make the day perfect. We also have great praise for the day of Staff as well, Karen, Ursula, and the banquet manager were amazing and were attentive to every single need of myself and the bridal party. The hotel room included in our wedding package for the night of our wedding was absolutely beautiful! It was a huge suite that we were able to use to get ready in as well. Our pictures so far are amazing because of the beautiful grounds they keep there. I could not have dreamed up a more perfect wedding day and we owe a lot of that to Normandy Farm! I highly recommend Normandy for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!! It was completely worth every penny we spent!
August 2013 – Unbelievable staff and amenities that helped make our day special. We wouldn’t have had our day any other way. And even though a lot of couples say that after their wedding, we believe that we really wouldn’t have changed anything. You really get the true worth of a dollar at Normandy Farm with a great wedding planner to wedding attendant. Thank you Normandy Farm for a perfect day!
