We welcome children, but all children under the age of 16 will need to be supervised at all times by an adult due to the nature of the property and because it is a working farm.

Yes.
Can we use the services of an outside licensed caterer?
All caterers must be chosen from the approved vendor list. Please ask our Wedding Agent to see our list of approved professional catering services
Can we supply or cook our own food?
We do not allow self-catering or have permission from the Berrien County Health Department to cook food in the caterer’s prep area. All food must be prepared in advance in a licensed kitchen.
Can we add additional decorations to the barn?
Yes, you can add decorations by using florist tape, push pins, and pipe cleaners. But the use of nails, tacks, glue or staples onto the barn, equipment, trees or other property is not permitted.
We encourage the use of natural items such as flower petals, leaves and seeds. In an effort to keep a natural rustic atmosphere the following items cannot be thrown, released or scattered outside: balloons, fireworks, party poppers, potpourri, silly string, confetti, sequins, glitter, artificial flower petals or artificial leaves.
Are candles permitted?
Yes, but due to fire and safety concerns, the flames must be completely contained in glass and attended at all times.

No, they are not due to safety and fire concerns and out of respect for our neighbors.
Do you have wedding props that we can rent?
Yes, please request a list of our available rental property from our Wedding Agent.
Why can’t I have access to the barn earlier in the day or have it longer in the evening?
Most likely a wedding has been scheduled before or after your big day. Although, we want your guests to feel like things were effortless, it does require several hours of work behind the scene to make sure the property is ready.
We cannot permit any post-event breakdown past midnight (12:00 pm) due to township ordinances.
How do we reserve our date?
First, email or call us to make sure your day is still available.

A nonrefundable deposit of $900 is due to reserve your date.
