About Historic John P. Furber Farm

Historic John P. Furber Farm is a rustic banquet hall wedding venue based in Cottage Grove, Minnesota. While its surrounded by woods, pastures, farm fields, and parks, the venue is conveniently located just minutes from the Twin Cities. As Minnesota's premier barn, this location is perfect for the outdoorsy couple who is looking to have a beautiful country wedding.

Facilities and Capacities
Historic John P. Furber Farm can host up to 500 people. Built in 1947, the barn features a gothic arched roof and the original interior wood. The venue is fully heated and air-conditioned, allowing the two-story barn to be a comfortable alternative to an outdoor ceremony should inclement weather occur. On the first floor, you, your friends, and family can dance the night away and celebrate your big day. The second floor mezzanine will allow your guests to take in the festivities below from a different perspective. Complete with a rustic lounge area and two outdoor decks, there is a little bit of everything tied into this location.

Services Offered
While the barn itself provides the perfect vintage ranch setting for your big day, Historic John P. Furber Farm has a number of event rentals available so you can personalize the space to become the wedding of your dreams. Items such as drapery, chair covers, centerpieces, linens, and other decor will add to the romance of the space. For those who are looking to have an outdoor wedding, the venue offers tent and tent accessory rentals so there is no need to work with outside vendors. A Vintage Touch, their on-site coordinator, can take care of all of your planning, design, and rental needs.

    Loved John P. Furber Farm

    The beauty of this barn is what we fell in love with. The owners, Angi and Wayne have done a fantastic job making this a beautiful place for weddings. They are extremely organized and put together. Although there is no day of coordinator they were able to give recommendations of who they feel is best. Diana, the manager was there at the beginning of the day making sure everything was where we needed it. The communication with our personal attendant the day of was nice to have. They have two exclusive vendors (DJ & catering) who were both wonderful. Everything was set up just as we asked and wanted. What's great about the barn is that there is both an indoor and outdoor ceremony option- perfect for our late October wedding. We had great communication throughout our year long engagement and plenty of opportunities to visit the barn. We only received wonderful compliments from our guests the day of. Everyone loved the barn, we are so thankful we found this place.

    Gorgeous Venue

    My Husband and I were set on a barn wedding and after taking a tour of the Historic John P. Furber Farm we we're sold. The venue is absolutely amazing, they did an amazing job restoring it. Our guests wouldn't stop complimenting how beautiful the venue is. It had everything we wanted, multiple ceremony sites, in house bar and even a kitchen for the catering company, bridal and groom suites to get ready, and amazing decor! Angi and Wayne were so helpful and were amazing to work with. We couldn't have asked for a more amazing wedding!
