About The Refinery At Perona Farms Wedding Venue

350 Andover-Sparta Road Andover, New Jersey 07821

The Refinery At Perona Farms has roots stretching all the way back to 1917. The farm was originally supposed to be a quiet space for Emil Perona to raise dairy cows as a break from his storied life. Before long, however, he realized that he needed some extra funds to keep up with the hearty appetite of his 11 cows. The farm was turned into a hotel where famous boarders such as Jack Renault and Joe DiMaggio would come for a restful day. The farms remain owned by the descendants of Emil, and it remains a beloved spot to celebrate with some fabulous people while sharing a really great meal.
