About

The Isham Family Farm is a charming, historic, rustic wedding venue situated in Williston, Vermont. Family-owned and operated for 5 generations, this working farm is a rural oasis and the perfect place to celebrate your nuptials. Guests to the property will be awed by the natural beauty of their surroundings, the romantic event space, and the relaxing atmosphere. Many couples continue to visit the farm year-round to reminiscence on their special day, whether in the Summer to pick blueberries and visit the farmer's market, in the Fall to pick pumpkins and run through the corn maze, in the winter to cut down a Christmas tree and drink hot chocolate, or in the Spring to snag some pure Vermont Maple Syrup boiled at the sugarhouse. The farm wants to be more than just your wedding day; we want to be a forever accessible memory for years to come!

This family-owned working farm provides a beautiful natural setting for celebrations of all kinds. With sweeping mountain views, vibrant flowers, and various event spaces, no place is more romantic than the Isham Family Farm.

Facilities and Capacity

This farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, first purchased in 1871 by the Isham family. Since then, this 108-acre destination has played host to memorable and beautiful wedding celebrations of all kinds. Couples can experience the majesty of the 3,000-square-foot barn, which is undoubtedly the standout feature of this venue. The English-style structure dates back to the late 1700s and has an open-plan layout, wooden siding, wagon wheel lights, and stunning wooden beams. All this works together to create a rustic feel that can easily be done up for parties. The barn can hold around 200 people comfortably inside, making it the ideal space for a grand gathering. For the ceremony earlier in the day, you can say your 'I dos' outside. Opt for a spot on the lush grass areas or upon the stone patio. Your guests will also delight in exploring the grounds and taking some once-in-a-lifetime pictures to commemorate the occasion.

    Isham Family Farm and Farmer Mike were everything and more that we could have hoped for on our wedding day. The farm was the perfect setting for our Rustic Vermont Wedding. We were lucky to have a perfect day, weather-wise, with warm temps and sunny skies, but even in the rain the venue is absolutely breathtaking. The barn is perfectly renovated, and maintains a great rustic charm while still providing space and amenities to make one's wedding day flow smoothly.

    Farmer Mike went above and beyond every step of the way, helping us out in so many ways the entire wedding weekend, from initial set up on Thursday through take down on Sunday afternoon. He provided well-heeded advice and support, as well as wagon rides to the top of the hill (our ceremony site) with gorgeous views of Mansfield and Camel's Hump. The farm maintains a very intimate feel since it only has six weddings per year. We feel very blessed to have had our wedding at this special, unique spot, and cannot thank Farmer Mike enough for all the help and kindness he provided us.

    Getting married at the Isham Farm was the best decision we made! Mike is incredibly helpful, involved, and responsive - even while operating a functioning farm. There are several options on his property for outdoor ceremony locations, and the barn provides a beautiful space to hold the reception - minimal decoration required! With all of the flexibility, you can really make your wedding your own.

    Mike Isham is possibly the sweetest man we have ever met. It was such a dream come true for my husband & I to get married in such an untouched, 'real' Vermont barn and grounds. I could not have asked for a more helpful, supportive experience than the one Mike Isham gave us. He made us feel like the only couple/family in the universe as we planned, and when my family & I arrived three days before the event to begin set-up, he was there every second of each day right beside us, helping with every project you can think of. He offered many of his antique farm decor items for us to use, helped with the heavy lifting type work, and gave great advice. You would NEVER believe that this man has only done weddings at this gorgeous venue for one full wedding season.

    The venue itself is spectacular. My husband proposed on Camel's Hump and we knew we wanted a venue that offered beautiful views of the mountain. Isham Farm delivered hands down with that requirement. Our guests took a gorgeous tractor/wagon ride to the top of a beautiful meadow (which Mike provided, free of charge), where we had our ceremony & beautiful Camel's Hump views. Mike has many other ceremony site options as well. We then celebrated the night away in the AMAZING restored post & beam barn, which was more than a comfortable size for our 100 person wedding. I would say 150-175 in that barn would still be comfortable. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of this venue.

    If what you are looking for as a couple is a REAL Vermont Barn/ Rustic Elegance/ Romance wedding venue, then this is it. We have been to many barn weddings where the venue does a wedding per weekend from April to November, and we knew that sort of venue was not for us. We wanted real, raw, beautiful Vermont. What Mike does is something special and rare. He books no more than 5 weddings a year which makes each one feel untouched and unique. He does this right! We would recommend Mike & his beautiful property to anyone who asks. A+++++++

Farmer Mike Isham
Fifth-Generation Owner

Howdy! I'm Farmer Mike, the fifth generation owner of the Isham Family Farm. I was raised doing chores and milking cows on this farm, and my dad still sleeps in the same bedroom he was born in. My wife, Helen, and I take great joy in stewarding this land and helping others create some of the best memories of their lives here.

We are also endlessly excited to share this joy with my nephew, Jordan, and his wife, Alexis, who are joining the farm as the sixth generation owners.

We hope you enjoy the beauty of the nature and historic barn as much as we do, and we can't wait to meet you.
