About

The Barn was built in 1935 and operated as one of the largest Dairy Farms in the state. After operations ceased, it changed hands a few times and was used for a variety of things including a pumpkin patch.

After sitting empty for several years, the barn was purchased by a local businessman in 2015. Renovations quickly began after all of the plans were in place to bring the building up to code and operate as a licensed business. Partial renovations were complete in 2016, and The Barn was hosting events in Phase I, the Milking Parlor while Phase II was being finished. The renovations were completed in late spring of 2017, and The Barn opened up availability to the Whole Property for event rental. This Barn is one of a kind in our area, and located on the border of Northwest Omaha in the very popular and expanding community of Bennington, NE.

    Gorgeous Venue with Amazing Service

    We can't wait for our special day to be held at The Barn! The customer service has been tremendous, and the venue is breathtaking! I couldn't have asked for a better experience or place to hold our event.

    Thank you for the kind words, Toni! We are as excited for you and Darin's wedding as you are. I still remember the beautiful rainbow that came out the night you toured The Barn, it was a sign for sure!

    Consultation Review

    Dee was amazing during our tour. She gave us the history of the barn and showed us around and went into details with all the options we are offered by choosing the barn as our venue. We really appreciated her taking the time to get to know us and listening to what we want for our big day!

    The Barn at the Ackerhurst Dairy Farm's reply:

    Thank you, La! It was my pleasure to have shared The Barn with you two! We are looking forward to our time together next year :)

    Fabulous Venue and Staff

    My daughter just had her wedding at The Barn and it was the most perfect venue! It was large enough to hold a large crowd and yet felt intimate and special. So many large venues feel like a commercial auditorium but The Barn certainly did not! The wedding was stunning and one main reason was our venue...The Barn...HIGHLY RECOMMEND;)

    The Barn at the Ackerhurst Dairy Farm's reply:

    Thank you so very much for the kind words! It was a pleasure to have met you all and be able to spend such a special day with you!
