Jill and Jeremy Wolf are the owners, dreamers, and midnight oil-burners behind this exclusive wedding and private events venue on the bucolic grounds of West Wind Fruit Farm in Hilton. They wanted to get married in a barn, but couldn’t find one that checked all their boxes, so they built one. Gorgeous, light, and airy space? Check. Loft for the bridal party? Check. Floor-to-ceiling fireplace with a mantle? Check. Vaulted ceilings? Covered terrace with an orchard view? Climate controlled? Check, check, and check. Pomona at Blue Barn accommodates up to 225 guests and requires a minimum of 75. As for the barn, it’s an angelic white, not blue. But it is next door to the farm’s Blue Barn Cidery, which features homegrown ciders made from apples grown on the premises.
