Regarding Taste of The Farm - "Just incredible to be able to see your venue in action! Pretty great opportunity that is so unique and not offered at other venues."
We would like to thank you for the amazing wedding The Farm and all of your staff provided for our daughter and her husband. We are so grateful for your hospitality and the venue offered the 'perfect' setting! Every single person involved in our experience went above and beyond to make this day spectacular for our family and our guests.
"Wow! We knew we chose the best chef for our daughter's wedding, but you exceeded our expectations! All of our guests continue to talk about the food. Thank you for being so easy to work with. You saw our vision for the wedding, and you created the dream."
"The Farm was immensely helpful and responsive. I felt confident that things would run smoothly and to be honest, they exceeded our expectations. Not only is the venue drop dead gorgeous, it is so convenient having everything so close together. We honestly had the best weekend of our lives and truly thank the Farm for everything they did for us, including providing us with our vendors who were ALL wonderful! 5 stars and more if possible!!"
"We fell in love with the property. We loved the ability to have guests stay on-site in The Farm Cabins/Cottages; it was convenient, and fun! We were able to rent a dog friendly cottage, which was a big relief for us. Having a décor package included with the property venue was a huge draw for us, being from out of town. Our Chef, Mike Ferrari, truly added a gourmet flare to our buffet meal, and the guests loved every bit! We also used their on-site coordinator. She not only kept us sane and organized, but had great vendor and décor suggestions. She made sure our big day was absolutely seamless. A true miracle worker!"
