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.

Absolutely incredible

Isham is a uniquely beautiful and magical place, and we're so grateful to have gotten married there! From our first call with Farmer Mike (the 5th-generation owner of the farm), we had the loveliest experience. Mike and his wife Helen made us feel at home. They are so kind, genuine, and brimming with contagious joy. We plan to come back and visit Isham many times in the years to come. We're forever grateful to Mike and Helen for having us!

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention a few of the things that make Isham special:

They only host one wedding a weekend, and make the farm available as a welcome/rehearsal dinner venue on Friday and for brunch on Sunday, all included in the rental cost.

They have a new getting-ready area for the bridal party, so we got to spend the entire day in the space, and even picnic outside in our matching bathrobes!

Isham is a hub for the local community: they host a weekly farmer's market, as well as community theater productions. When we first visited, they'd held a middle school cabaret in the barn the night before. They encourage couples who get married on the farm to come back and visit. Isham is a fantastic wedding venue, with everything they need to accomplish that, but it's also not just a wedding venue, and you feel the history and love of a family-owned, beautifully cared for property when you're there.

The ceremony site is on a gorgeous and secluded hill, with beautiful views and no noise pollution.

The dinner tables are beautifully handmade.

We truly can鈥檛 recommend Isham highly enough!

An authentic Vermont Wedding Venue

Isham Family Farm is the real deal. Mike and Helen are so helpful and down to earth they were truly part of the family by the end of the week. The scenery is beautiful (imagine looking right at Camel's Hump during the ceremony) and the barn and cocktail area were equally inviting. They were incredibly flexible and I can't imagine hosting a wedding anywhere else.

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.
