We are a hidden gem, nestled into our tiny community of Old Cottage Grove which was settled in 1843. Our historic, white, Gothic arched dairy barn is the icon of Cottage Grove and sits on 5 acres of green grass, pastures, emblematic oak trees, and overlooks a valley with stunning sunsets. Our elegant barn is second to none with beauty, a brand-new outdoor ceremony site, indoor ceremony option, a gorgeous bridal suite, masculine groom's suite, heat and air-conditioning for year round events, a game room, outdoor game space, capacity from 100-500 guests, and much more. Now with social distancing, we are the largest indoor/outdoor venue so you can still have a larger event if you wish.

    10/12/2019 Wedding Review

    Wow, I don't know where to begin when I start typing this review. If you are looking for a rustic, beautiful, and barn styled venue, then John P. Furber Farm is the place for you. There are many barn venues in Minnesota, but what makes John P. Furber Farm, so unique from the other venues is the owners Angi and Wayne Butt. No words can truly express my gratitude and appreciation for them and the other staff at John P. Furber Farm. When I booked my venue back in February 2018, the second I walked through the door, I was greeted with a big smile. Angi is one of the warmest and welcoming people I have ever met. She makes you feel right at home the second you step through their beautiful doors.

    Throughout the tour, I had numerous questions, and she would genuinely stop and take the time to answer them. She wanted to make sure all of my questions were clarified. What I loved most about the tour was how honest Angi was. There were no hidden fees with the barn; all the prices were listed and what extras you need to pay (insurance, Dj, food, drink, etc..). She did not pressure or scare us into booking, and she honestly presented the barn and left us with the decision if we wanted this to be our special place for our wedding. Due to the beauty of the barn and Angi's kindness, we instantly booked the venue, and it was the best decision we have ever made.

    John P. Furber Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding day!! The barn was easy to decorate because it is so gorgeous you don't need to add much. Throughout the whole night of the wedding, our guests could not get over how breathtaking the venue was. Guests were also fans of the kids and the game room (which is a massive bonus if you are planning on having kids and high schoolers at your wedding). The kids and game room made for perfect spots for people to go to if they did not want to dance. I must also note that the game room was not supposed to be ready in time for our wedding, but because Angi and Wayne knew how excited I was about that feature, they had it opened and ready to go!

    Another beautiful feature of the barn is the bridal suite. Oh my goodness, I have never seen such a stunning place!! It was a fantastic space to get ready, enjoy a mimosa, and take pictures. The barn is full of perfect spots for photos, but my favorites were on the stairs with the wedding party coming down. They also redid a space in front of the barn that would be great if you have your ceremony on site. They also have the ceremony space in the back that is equally, if not more beautiful with all the trees. We took many photos back there as well. It is truly a stunning place to have your wedding day!

    We had the most magical and perfect wedding day, and it is all because we chose to have our day at John P. Furber Farm. I cannot rave enough about Angi and Wayne. Yes, we only knew each other through emails (which they respond to ASAP, like you ask a question and they get back to you within hours, none of this waiting days to hear back), open houses, and final walkthrough but by the end of our wedding journey, they felt like family. Seriously, they both have hearts of gold. For example, one day, my mom and I were driving passed the venue because it is so beautiful, and I wanted to get some ideas for my upcoming wedding. Wayne saw us outside, and immediately walked over to our car and started talking with us. He told us to come in and take measurements or do whatever we needed to do. We said no, we are just looking because we love the venue so much. Wayne proceeded to spend over an hour talking to us, and it even was raining! Who does that? Oh yeah, the staff at John P. Furber Farm because they ACTUALLY care about you and want your day to be as beautiful as you have dreamt it!
    Another example of their kindness is when we got to the barn on our wedding day. My family was helping bring in decor and other items we needed for setting up, and here comes Wayne and one of his friends to help us unload and get the pieces into the barn. He did not have to do that, but because he cares about his brides, grooms, and their families, he wanted to make sure he could do whatever he could to make the day easier on us. Angi and Wayne are delightful owners who love what they do. They care for people and want to make your wedding day something you will cherish forever. With my whole heart, I highly recommend and encourage you to book your wedding at John P. Furber Farm. You will have the most incredible experience ever, and maybe even gain two new family members as we did. Thank you again, Angi and Wayne. We are beyond blessed that you two and your barn came into our lives!

    Blown away

    What a spectacular venue! The unique photo spots, the new ceremony site on the front lawn, the getting ready spaces, and spectacular reception space blew everyone away. The staff was great to work with as well!

    Amazing Day

    Everything about working with the Historic John P. Furber Farm was amazing. The owners and staff were so helpful and they went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding day was perfect. They made the whole process as simple as possible and answered all of our questions and helped ease our stress in preparation for our special day. I would highly recommend seeing this truly one of a kind venue first hand as words cant describe how thoughtfully and beautifully the barn has been converted and how stunning the surrounding grounds are.

    Thank you very much Josh and Jenny! It was a beautiful day for an amazing couple! We can't thank you enough for choosing our barn for your special day!
