    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!

    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.

    Almquist Farm is the perfect place to get married

    e got married a couple of weeks ago on August 13, 2021. From the very start, Paul and Kari were amazing. Planning a wedding during a pandemic is not easy, we had several questions that we needed to be answered and Paul and Kari answered quickly and with great detail. We had a PERFECT day. We had an outdoor ceremony where the sound worked perfectly. We had a HUGE bridal party that fit well in the "getting ready" areas. Paul and Kari were around helping all day long. We truly could not have picked a better place to get married. ALL of our guests told us how much they loved it and how beautiful Almquist Farms are. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone!

    Almquist Farm's reply:

    Thank you so much Maddie! We are so glad we finally have had some really nice weather weekends after a couple of hot months. Best wishes to you and Brady in your new life together!

    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.
