    The BEST Family owned and operated Farm!

    We toured quite a few farm/barn wedding venues from minneapolis area to rochester area and we couldn't be happier with our choice of ALMQUIST FARM! Here are the main reasons we choose Almquist: 1. One large main heated/air conditioned reception hall with bathrooms (Thus, event enjoyment would not be weather/temperature dependent.) 2. Family owned and operated 3. Best price around! (We feel other places charged more while offering less.) Once we booked it was nothing but smooth sailing. Paul and Kari were very professional and super responsive to any questions we sent via email. The day of our wedding the place was absolutely beautiful! All the buildings were clean and tidy. The lawn, landscaping, and pathways were perfectly maintained. We could not have asked for a better venue or people to work with! Thank you Almquist Farm for helping make our wedding day so special and enjoyable!

    Best day ever

    Our wedding day took place at Almquist Farm on Friday, September 18th 2020 and we can honestly say that it was PERFECT! Almquist Farm was the first venue that we toured and it was also our last stop. Paul & Kari were so helpful and involved through out the entire planning process. They made it stress free with wonderful vendor recommendations, no hidden fees and their genuine passion and work they personally put into helping their couples create the wedding day they envision at their breathtaking venue. They are extremely timely in responding to any questions and offer great advice for planning. Even in the midst of the current many unknowns and uncertainties of this wild world, they were so easy to work with and did everything they could to create the special day we envisioned.
    The venue in general including the property, the buildings, and the landscapes are simply and naturally gorgeous and are so well taken care of. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the space, the amenities and the staff- and we continue to receive compliments from our guests weeks and weeks later.
    Thank you Almquist Farm for our best day ever ❤️
    We can’t imagine to have said our “I do’s” anywhere else!
