Do I need the services of a wedding coordinator? A wedding coordinator is highly recommended for events with 50 or more guests. Past experiences have proven that some of the best money spent for weddings is often the sum paid to have a professional insure the nicest possible outcome. All vendor services should be coordinated through the ARF Events Planner whether or not you utilize a wedding coordinator.

Why do I have to rent the lodging facilites at the farm if my wedding occurs on a weekend? Our typical weekends, especially during the season from June 1 thru October 30 are generally sold out well in advance. Weddings simply intrude on the adjacent residence space enjoyed by our B&B and Vacaltion Rental Home and as such we require that weekend weddings utilize those on farm amenities in order to minimize guest disruption.

Do you require a contract? Yes. We are happy to send you a copy for you to review.

Do you have more than one wedding per day? No. In fact, we prefer to keep our weddings scheduled with several weeks in between. This will enable us to return the farm to its original tranquil setting and better insure that your wedding is a unique and memorable experience. For this reason, we only allow 6 per season. We do, however, enjoy a diversity of other events at the farm.

Do you allow smoking? No, we do not allow smoking on our property out of the safety of our farm animals (nicotine can be toxic and deadly to our dairy goats) as well as for sanitation purposes.

Do you require any cleaning fees or deposits? We require a $1000 refundable cleaning/damage deposit. This is fully refundable as long as the facilites are returned to the original state they were in before the event.

What if I want a family member to cater the event? We allow this, however we require that the caterer has all the proper requirements (insurance, license, etc) that indemnify us and you from being liable.

What time do we need to leave? The county has specific ordinances with regards to both music and departure times, With that in mind, we do not allow music with any expletive language and you will need to wind down the party by 930pm. The county does not want people driving the country roadways too late at night, so they request that guests depart the farm by 10pm. Assuming the typical wedding starts at 4pm, this should provide plenty of time for you to have a ceremony and reception and still meet these requirements.

Is my caterer responsible for cleaning up and tearing down? Yes. In general terms quality caterers accept this responsibility regularily. We ask that removal occur beginning immediately after the event concludes and all materials rented be withdrawn from the farm premises by no later than 11am the following day. Baring provisions to the contrary, this will be subject to your deposit exposure.

Can I supply my own beer and wine for my wedding? Yes, as long as you have an OLCC approved team of servers. Most caterers have licensed staff and if not, there are other vendors we can recommend who do. We urge you to be mindful that our facilities are located in the country and moderation is encouraged.

How much money do I have to pay to secure the day for my wedding? 25% non-refundable deposit is required for all weddings. In addition, you will need to provide a $1000 damage deposit that is refundable if unused. Also, final balance owed is due 10 days prior to the event.
