Almquist Farm is an amazing venue for a wedding anytime of the year!
My daughter and son-in-law were married in the winter. The ceremony and reception were held in the same building which is clean and beautiful. It is also full of natural light with all the french doors facing the countryside. It feels like your outside! In fact it was a nice February day that guests stood out on the front porch overlooking the old oak trees. Children were running over to the barn to see the goats. Paul and Kari are so easy to work with and felt like I've known them awhile! They are proud to share in the history of the farm and what they have done to make it a beautiful venue! The granary is where the wedding party and families get ready, it is one of a kind! Almquist Farm has something for everyone!Sent on 02/29/2020
Almquist Farm's reply:Thank you Shelly! We enjoyed the day as well. You had a great group of people and it was fun to get to know them. The brunch wedding was a great idea. People really enjoyed it. We will be recommending it to our couples who are looking to change up the traditional wedding day.

I can't imagine a better place to have been married
It's simple, really.... if Almquist Farm is open for your dream day-- BOOK IT!! Paul and Kari were extremely helpful and great hosts, we loved that we were working with family rather than a huge corporate structure. If you have toured or seen photos of the venue, you know it is stunning. Guests complimented it endlessly and loved the picturesque sunset, patio, and goats of course! The ceremony site is beautiful as well, and the shade from the big tree helped even our 85 degree day feel comfortable to guests. We 10/10 recommend.Sent on 07/29/2021

Amazing Venue, Family & Wedding Day
We got married July, 2021 at Almquist and want to let you know how truly special our day was at Almquist Farm. Not only was the wedding day special, the process was wonderful. We toured and interviewed many, many, venues and when we met Kari & Paul, we knew it was the perfect family and venue for us to have our wedding at. Along the way, Paul & Kari were always responsive with any questions that came up and helped us along the way. They are extremely professional, organized and some of the kindest, genuine people we’ve met. The wedding day was better than we could have even imagined! From the girls and guys getting ready at the granary to the breathtaking ceremony, to the fantastic bar service in the reception, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue. Our guests said it was one of the best and coolest weddings they’ve ever been to. Thank you.
