Our original venue cancelled on us 2 weeks before our wedding. We found friends farm and she so helpful and so sweet in getting us set up for a new plan at Friends farm. She has everything beautifully decorated, tables, chairs and table clothes for your guests. The morning of the wedding my groom and his groomsmen were able to shoot skeet which was provided by Friends Farm. My bridesmaids and I were picked up and ride down on a hayride to the isle which was perfect. This venue and owners are absolutely amazing. I highly recommend friends farm!Sent on 06/22/2020

Perfect outdoor wedding venue!
Friends Farm was the perfect wedding venue! MaryLynn is so nice, sweet, flexible, and easy to get in touch with. You can tell this is her passion, which made planning our wedding feel even more exciting. The venue is beautiful, we love all the trees, plants, wood structures, lighting, and decor, and love how you can make it more or less rustic depending on your preference. The price is very reasonable. We also loved that we were able to have the whole venue all day, the only wedding/event that day, able to get ready on site, and use our own vendors for food and bring our own alcohol, which many venues do not offer. Highly recommend!Sent on 11/07/2019

Friends Farm was an awesome venue. I have been at a LOT of barn venues...A LOT and these guys were definitely one of the best! The staff was so friendly and helpful, my bride actually had a flower mishap, and her bouquets were not delivered. The staff went out of their way to provide some last minute silk flowers for the entire wedding party! The grounds were also beautiful, very picturesque and made finding the perfect spots for photos very easy!
Mary Lynn and Pat are the owners of this fantastic wedding venue located in Belews Creek North Carolina just outside of Kernersville. They have truly established a world-class wedding venue that provides opportunities and scenery like no other. The second you step foot on to this fantastic property, you are amazed at how beautiful and personable they have truly made their venue. The brand new reception barn can easily seat many of your guests. The charm of the cabin along with the recently added gentleman a quarters, really add to the ease and excitement of your wedding day. We cannot forget their signature dove release. We have been blessed to be a part of Friends Farm and feel like every person that has had the opportunity to work with Mary Lynn and PAT walk away from their special day feeling overjoyed and thankful that they chose such an amazing wedding venue!
