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 children, Everett and Kira, and their Great Pyrenees mix rescue pups, Nova and Chaplin. They also own a Shire/Irish Cob cross, Elton, who lives at a nearby friend's farm.

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 stunning sylvan ridge.

Our Team


Alec Geno

property manager

   Alec is a native of St. Louis, MO, but has taken nicely to life in the Northeast. He is Sylvan Ridge Farm's other co-owner, and oversees property care, development, and financials. In his free time he enjoys strength training, mountain biking, tabletop gaming, and reading fantasy and philosophy. He's always up for a good Belgian-style beer.


Linnea Geno

bookings manager

   Linnea grew up here in Milford, escaped for a while, and then came back for good. She co-owns Sylvan Ridge Farm with her husband Alec, and handles the venue's contracts, invoicing, web design, and social media. Her favorite pastimes are horseback riding, hiking, playing piano, reading literary fiction, and cheering for the Green Bay Packers.


Sara Mack

event manager

Sara was born and raised in Bucks County and later returned to PA to start a family. An experienced event planner, she has been involved in venue operations at Sylvan Ridge since our opening year. She now manages all our wedding and event coordination, as well as handling tours and vendor meetings. She's an avid traveler, foodie, and card shark!


Kayla Bowe

associate coordinator

Kayla is a longtime resident of the Milford area. After studying event management in college, she joined Sara Mack Events and began assisting with Sylvan Ridge Farm events, eventually working her way up to full coordinator. Outside of work, she loves traveling, doing projects in her new home, or binge-watching Gossip Girl.


David Torres

associate coordinator

Another longtime local, David got into events by accident when he planned the weddings of a few close friends. What started off as a hobby turned into a passion, and he joined the Sara Mack Events team soon after. When he isn't coordinating events, you can find him running theater productions at the local high school as their Assistant Director.
