Our Story

Sylvan Ridge Farm is a family-owned event venue and vacation rental property just outside Milford, PA. Owners Alec and Linnea Geno live half a mile up the road with their son Everett, their two dogs Nova and Chaplin, and a small flock of free-range chickens. 

Linnea Geno (formerly Peckham) grew up on Cummins Hill and always dreamed of raising a family in her childhood home. She and Alec spent their first years of marriage living abroad, learning the hospitality business in New Zealand and then moving  to Leuven, Belgium for Alec's graduate education. The opportunity to purchase 30 beautiful acres bordering Linnea's family property initiated their move back to Milford, Pennsylvania and the start of a four-year journey developing the land into a unique venue for the wider community to enjoy. 


The vision Alec and Linnea have realized integrates the natural beauty and historical integrity of the farm and its impressive sylvan ridge.
