Over the years, several of our customers suggested we do weddings because of the natural setting , we would get requests to hold parties and other events, but we did not feel as though we had the facilities to host these events. So early 2012, we decided to look into it and then started to design an addition to our existing goat and horse barn, to accommodate weddings and other events...We looked at many designs and found someone to draw up a design that we came up with, ......Very exciting to see our design on paper........so with Jerry's childhood friend, Jessie, who happens to be a carpenter, several months work and some unforeseen changes in design, the barn evolved to exactly what we had envisioned ..... Started in August of 2013 and finished by May of 2014....this barn was built the old fashion way, with oak and other native lumber, half from the timber on our own farm and the other half from an Amish friend. The barn has a rustic feel that modern lumber just can't supply.
This year we had our 1st wedding, it was a beautiful day for a country wedding and much to our delight, it went off without a hitch, well, except of coarse, for the bride and groom, ....pardon my pun :-) All of their guests had a great time and had a lot of nice things to say about the venue..
We have heard from many interested couples who have found us from all over, and we are very excited about the future. We look forward to working with each and every couple who choose Crooked River Farm to make their wedding dreams come true.
