You don't have to go far to go green when you bring your next meeting to Bucks County. The natural beauty of Bucks County is the ideal backdrop for meeting without harming Mother Nature. With meeting spaces in green wineries and eco-friendly bed and breakfasts, there are plenty of areas to meet and without leaving behind a large carbon footprint.
• Take your next meeting to the classic fieldstone manor of HollyHedge Estate, a bed and breakfast inn that is committed to going green. The Estate has transformed their unused pool into a naturalized pond that is now home to aquatic life, plants and wildlife. HollyHedge also serves fresh farm-to-table meals using vegetables grown on-site for use in the chef's freshly prepared meals. Meet in style with a catered cocktail reception or buffet lunch, then relax before and after your meeting by taking advantage of HollyHedge's special corporate B&B room rates.
• Plan your next lunch meeting for Earl's Bucks County at Peddler's Village. This locally sourced restaurant serves local grown and raised foods from sustainable farms, ranches and hatcheries. Earl's banquet facilities can be converted into meeting space, with room for 100 people in theatre seating and up to 80 for a banquet. Following your locavore lunch, take a stroll through Peddler's Village, an 18th century inspired shopping village with more than 70 unique shops and boutiques.
• Make your meeting an experience at Crossing Vineyards and Winery. Crossing Vineyards is serving some of Bucks County's finest wines while staying true to its commitment to greener growing.
