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.
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.

This was the first venue my husband and I toured when searching for a venue. We toured one more venue, but our hearts were set on Furber! Angi and Wayne and their staff were wonderful to work with, gave an informative tour of the venue, and are constantly working to improve their barn. Their hard work does not go unnoticed, during our wedding and even after we got MANY compliments on how gorgeous the venue was for both the ceremony and reception. The venue has a natural beauty that does not need a lot of decor to make it beautiful which is one of the reasons my husband and I were drawn to it. The ceremony site is beautiful overlooking the valley and could not have asked for a better spot to get married! Thank you Angi and Wayne for the opportunity to have our wedding in Furber because everyone truly had the greatest time. If you want an unforgettable venue, this is it!Sent on 08/27/2018

John P. Furber Farm was the perfect location for our wedding. My husband and I love the outdoors and combining that with the rustic yet elegant barn was a dream. Minimal decorating was necessary because the barn is beautiful on its own. We invited children to our wedding and this was the perfect location for them to dance, explore, and play lawn games... as well as the adults too! The day went by seamlessly and our guests raved about the location.Sent on 07/14/2019

we LOVED this venue!
We fell in love with Furber Farm from the moment we pulled up to the property. Angi and Wayne have beautifully crafted the perfect wedding venue. The warmth, fun, and beauty that this venue emits is a feeling that we didn't feel anywhere else (and we looked at quite a few places!). We loved being able to utilize the bride and groom suites to get ready with our wedding party the morning of, have our pup be a part of our indoor wedding ceremony, and work with Angi to have our ceremony layout the long way in the barn instead of the usual 'short way'! We got married in February and Angi was mopping up the muddy/wet floors of the barn before the ceremony started so it would look perfect for our guests - we can't say enough great things about this venue!Sent on 02/25/2019
