Welcome to the Ranch!
Are you looking for a place to host your wedding, reception, corporate event or special activity with a genuinely unique experience? If so, Ironstone Ranch has the services and facilities to accommodate your needs.
The Main Barn at Ironstone Ranch is climate controlled. The interior has been meticulously restored and includes modern amenities that can allow you to relax and enjoy your event. The orchards which are located on the property can also accommodate outdoor weddings in a beautiful setting. And our "Mini" Barn offers another venue at the Ranch to expand your possibilities. Our services include many activities not found at other venues.
While it’s flattering to be seen as something everyone wants to copy, it’s important to know the differences between “barn” venues and Ironstone Ranch. Since we started Ironstone there have been many other “barn” venues that have popped up in South Central PA. But none have the size, amenities and experience that Ironstone Ranch has. Ironstone Ranch, a working horse ranch and farm property, covers over 200 acres of scenic pastures, woodlands, farmland with riding and walking trails all nestled in a convenient location just outside of Elizabethtown, PA.
Ironstone offers multiple venue accommodations including our Farm House, our “Mini” barn, The Orchards and of course the Main Barn. Each one is fully restored and climate controlled (except for the Orchards, of course). And Ironstone is the only wedding venue that provides you with a built in back-up plan for your outdoor wedding that’s just as nice as “Plan A”.
At Ironstone you can participate in Horseback riding, Hitch Wagon rides, Carriage Rides, Hay Wagon Rides, Use our Riding Arena, be a part of Organized experience activities, roast over one of our huge fire pits, see a working hand dug well and view plenty of beautiful scenery while you’re exploring.
Give us a call to make an appointment to take a tour of all that Ironstone Ranch has to offer.
After exploring all the Ironstone Ranch has to offer visit us on your favorite social site and tell us what you think. You'll find us on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.

Just dropping by to tell you how awesome I think you are! I have been capturing weddings in Lancaster for 23 yrs, but only had my first experience at ironstone last weekend. Beautiful property, awesome service, and more importantly, incredible mission! I thank God for you and what you are doing!
I hope to visit Ironstone again (hopefully in warmer temps!), and I will be sure to tell my clients about you! -Cindy Frey, Frey Photography
