The Brock Family Farms is a working farm with a barn for weddings in the greater Raleigh, North Carolina area. This venue is elegantly rustic with a modern indoor barn space that couples will find completely finished with hardwood floors, drywall, and pendant ceiling lights. This venue is located 20 minutes from the Pitt-Greenville Airport, roughly an hour and 40 minutes from downtown Raleigh.

Facilities and Capacity
This working farm invites up to 300 guests to attend a couple’s wedding. At Brock Family Farms, couples can exchange vows on the grasses of a bright open field or under the covered porch. Produce, berries and other crops grow just behind the weathered wooden doors at the backend of the aisle. These stand-alone doors can be framed by hay bales or other decor items. From the outside, the barn space is a long, one-story, unassuming building. It features a spacious porch with a roof, under which couples will find wood-paneled walls, rocking chairs, and a fireplace. Inside, couples are greeted with simple elegance. Polished hardwood floors meet wood trim that climbs halfway up painted drywall. Overhead, strings of fairy lights add ambiance while pendant lights illuminate the room. A variety of decor from rustic to elegant is provided with the barn and can be interchanged to complement your style. Country elements and decor add a bit of charm to the wedding venue on this farm.

    This is it!

    That is what my daughter/bride said after looking at the venue and talking with the owner all of two minutes. That is what I said after all of the above and hearing the price and amenities. Sue Ellen, owner, is wonderful to communicate with and Makes sure everything is just right. Katherine, the Wedding Director, is equally as knowledgeable and helpful. We had 200 guests and the venue handled the dinner tables and dancing with plenty of room.

    Sue Ellen helped make her day perfect!!
