Beautiful and Rustic
We had such a special wedding day at Badger Farms on July 13, 2019. The venue is beautiful and rustic. We had our ceremony outside under the tree, in the shade. Great thing about Badger Farms is that the barn is air conditioned, so our guests could cool down in the AC for the reception! They offer so many decorations to choose from, and helps keep the budget down! Betsy and Dave (the very kind owners) were amazing to work with and made wedding planning so much easier! Betsy and Dave helped with set up and did all the clean up. Anytime I had a question, about anything at all, I'd text, email, or call them up and I'd get a response in a very short amount of time. They recommended other vendors that were familiar with their venue as well, which was extremely helpful. We had so many compliments regarding the venue from our guests. I highly recommend booking a wedding at Badger Farms! We are incredibly happy with the decision we made.Sent on 07/19/2019

My husband and I had our wedding at Badger Farms and loved it, we felt like we were throwing a party in our own home. We cannot sing their praises enough. Betsy and Dave, the owners, do more than any other venue owners do. This review is going to be long, but we want to make sure we highlight everything they did for us and all the amazing parts of Badger Farms!Sent on 06/26/2019
We had our wedding on a Sunday, so they allowed us to come in Saturday to get set up. We were able to completely set up the room that our dinner would be in. They provided all the tables, linens, dishes, silverware, and drinkware. One of the selling points of Badger Farms is how many decorations they have. Badger Farms keeps any decorations that a party leaves behind. All decorations are categorized, labeled, and stored. Betsy keeps a 5 page document of all of the items, their sizes, and colors. They have anything and everything you could ever want (jars, lights, votives, table runners, signs, baskets, etc.). The only items we opted to buy for our decorations were live flowers and a card box. Everything else we used was from Badger Farms.
You have the option of having a ceremony indoors or outdoors. Both are incredibly beautiful. All of the indoor space is air conditioned, which is nice in the heat of summer. Another perk is that you are able to bring all your own food and drink. Your food has to be catered and you do have to have a bartender. This was great for us. My husband is a craft beer connoisseur, so we were able to bring all of our favorite brews.
For our ceremony, Dave did the music (because he does a better job than the DJ’s) and Betsy helped with timing. During photos, Dave made sure to bring us a water and a beer to keep us hydrated. At the end of the night, he even called cabs for us. Our family and guests were incredibly impressed by the venue and Dave & Betsy.
Perhaps the best aspect of Badger Farms is that at the end of the night, you can walk away. Dave & Betsy and the Badger Farms staff will clean everything up. All we had to do was return the next day to pick up leftover food and drink. This was incredible.
Overall, our wedding at Badger Farms was amazing, both because of the beauty and uniqueness of the venue and all of the services Dave and Betsy provide. We travelled from Chicago just to get married at Badger Farms. We cannot recommend Dave and Betsy enough. They are incredible people. They have been doing weddings for years and truly love it. You will not regret checking them out!
One of my favorite wedding venues to work! Dave and Betsy are awesome to work with and make you feel at home. Having air conditioning in the main hall at a farm is fantastic! The place is gorgeous, too and it's a very unique place to have a wedding.
