@MrsCaribou:  You could rent a pavilion at Look Park in Northampton.  Some can hold up to 200 people, and looks like for weekends they all cost $400 or less.  http://www.lookpark.org/everyday-activities/picnic-sites-and-pavilions.html

I’m sure there are other parks that rent out picnic areas for large parties.  Check out this list: http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/massparks/recreational-activities/picnicking.html 

Good luck!

We did Look park – we invited 210, 170 showed up.  It was beautiful.

Check out Qounqount (spelling?) farm in Whately.  Also the Barn @ Hampshire College.  Deerfield Academy (not the Inn) holds weddings as well.

We used Seth Mias Cetering out of Northampton – they were around $25/plate approx 3 years ago.
