 CONTACT US - GREEN GARDENS EVENTS  The best way to get in touch is our online form

We process all requests through our online form - please don't call the farm phone to inquire about events. We found that we're better able to serve both our farm clients and our events clients by adding an Events Specialist to our staff to handle all events requests. 

Visits are by appointment only, please. Please do not stop by the venue without prearranging a visit. We are a real working farm providing tons (literally!) of healthy produce to our community. This means the use of heavy equipment and the intense work life that farming 20 acres brings with it. We also live here at the farm, so we treasure our few moments of quiet as a family. If you'd like to schedule a visit, please contact us through our website. There is a fee for all site visits beyond the visits we include for clients. 


Rates for other events, dinners or parties available upon request. (2018 is 100% booked - all weekend and midweek dates are fully booked. Thank you!)

OPEN SEASONALLY, MAY - OCTOBER

Tours by appointment -

Our structure is a much more comfortable space to be in compared to other tent or barn options:

* Heat-reducing roof material cools the room indoors on hot days - cooler inside than out in the sun!


* Rated NFPA 701 for fire safety (unlike wooden barns)

* 7 industrial stainless steel fans circulate air

* Roll-open sides allow up to six feet of height on both sides, but close with the simple turn of a crank if conditions change

* Real wooden flooring feels great underfoot and is fun to dance on

* Interior planting beds showcase our farm's veggies and flowers in all phases of growth

* Pull-up access for your catering makes service a breeze and makes sure your food looks and tastes its very best


Our flooring: We have a full wooden deck throughout the Greenhouse.

REVIEWS

From Emily:

Perfect place for a wedding

If you are looking for a wedding venue, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The house itself is gorgeous, well maintained, and well furnished. The pictures don't even do it justice. Our guests were so excited to wander around inside, ostensibly to use the bathroom, but really just to admire the beautiful historic house with all its hidden closets and spacious rooms. We managed to house our entire bridal party in the farmhouse for the weekend, which was a great convenience for the out-of-towners. In addition, we used the huge wrap-around front porch for the after-wedding brunch. The grounds are also lovely. In the course of the weekend, we had the ceremony and reception outside near the pole barns, and there was more than enough space for lawn games and lounging in the shade. The pool and firepit were also big hits with guests, and we even projected a movie on the side of one of the hoophouses later on. There was plenty of space for everything we hoped to do, and the amenities were accessible and plentiful. Finally (and this is important for anyone who might like to host a wedding on the property), the owners are two of the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet. They went above and beyond in terms of helping us get the farm and the house ready for the wedding, from mowing all the lawns a few days in advance to running guests from the parking area to the ceremony in a golf cart on the day of. They were quick to respond to all of our many questions, both on our wedding weekend and in the months before. They even sold us some of their delicious veggies to serve at the wedding. All in all, this is a fantastic place to hold a wedding. I highly recommend it.

 
 
From Trish:

Wonderful Wedding Location

This was the most perfect location for a wedding. We desired a relaxed, family focused, fun wedding, and got exactly that. My spouse and I arrived on Thursday with our immediate families in tow. The farm house is absolutely gorgeous and easily housed all 12 of us without feeling crowded. The kitchen was extra large and perfect for cooking large meals. We ended up cooking the food for our own wedding (about 100 guests total), so the use of the walk in cooler, as well as having the vegetables supplied by the owners was phenomenal! The owners were incredibly accommodating throughout the entire process, helping us with the logistics of booking, suggesting different hotels in the area, as well as getting the vegetables we needed and always offered that if they didn't grow it they would find someone who did. They also provided for all of the floral arrangements, which were perfect and stress-free. We loved being able to support the farm in multiple capacities with our wedding. In the days leading up, the owners, and those they have employed to help on the farm, were incredibly helpful and friendly, at points anticipating our needs before we even realized them. The venue itself is gorgeous, no need to get a bunch of decorations, nature does it herself. Our guests loved being able to explore the farm, see what was being grown, and enjoyed the fact they got to taste it all with dinner. We were also able to have a bonfire and s'mores at the wedding, which was a perfect way to close out the evening. Overall, we can not speak highly enough of Green Gardens as a place to host a wedding. The day was perfect and made possible by the awesome people at Green Gardens. If your are looking for a relaxed, friendly, and unique wedding location, look no further.
