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.

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.

    Beautiful Day

    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.

    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!
