One of the advantages of holding your function in the Barn at the Jersey Farm Hotel is the uniqueness of designing your own menu that can be shown to your guests at the function itself and for them to choose on the day and not in advance. This way you can cater for guests individual requirements and give them an extensive choice better than any other venue.
