My husband (I have to get use to saying that..hehe) and I were absolutely over the moon and impressed with Friends Farm (Pat and Mary)!!! From day one, Mary and Pat were super easy to work with. They are some of the sweetest and nicest people you'll meet. Mary answered all my questions, offered suggestions, and reminded me about some things I had forgotten. They are very flexible. The venue is absolutely beautiful.Sent on 05/30/2017
My husband and I wanted a small rustic country theme, and that is exactly what Friends Farm provided us. Mary and Pat have worked really hard to make their venue look amazing. The rustic theme and beautiful landscaping added so much more to our big day. Mary and Pat have some décor already in place which actually made it easier on me, and I didn't have to decorate as much as I would have thought or as much as I would have if we had to chosen to go somewhere else. The décor is beautiful. Everyone who attended our wedding loved the venue and complimented on how nice Pat, Mary and their staff were.
I could not have asked for a better venue and wedding day! Mary and Pat really went out of their way to make things easy. My husband and I are still enjoying the pictures that family and friends took and we love how beautiful everything turned out.
Thanks to Mary & Pat, our BIG day was AMAZING!!!

Best Venue Around!
We live on the NC coast and after researching venues for weeks we decided to check out Friends Farm. We toured the venue in December and even with no leaves on the trees the place was gorgeous! Our fall wedding was everything we wanted and more. Mary and her husband are amazing, the place is so clean and neatly kept. We went with the all inclusive package and I am so glad we did. The price was reasonable and they handled everything from decorating to clean up. The cake was one of the best tasting cakes I've ever had and the food was really good. Mary was always quick to respond to any questions we had and because of her and her husband our wedding day was smooth sailing. We would recommend this place 100 times over!Sent on 11/20/2018

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!
