Based in Hay Springs, Nebraska, the Barns at Galyen Farms is a family-operated barn wedding venue. The Galyen family is the fourth generation to live on this farm. Current owner Larry Galyen’s great grandparents started the farm as a homestead at the end of the 19th century. His current focus is on creating a sustainable farm, as he and his family live a farm-to-table lifestyle, supplemented with certain items from neighboring farms. Larry’s wife, Deborah, has years of experience in interior design and the hospitality industry and is the driving force behind weddings at the farm. They are also open to hosting wedding showers and engagement parties, as well as rehearsal dinners. Elopements are welcome here.

Deb went above and beyond to make our day perfect!
Incredibly flexible with everything! Decorating was a breeze, all we had to do was any table decorations we wanted and they did the rest! We didn’t have to do clean up either! The barns are breath taking with so many rustic decorations. There was a hay rack ride for kids as well as many outdoor games and some playground equipment. The smaller barn was perfect location for a bar area and even has a pool table in it! The staff at the barns makes you feel like family, I would highly recommend this place!Sent on 07/29/2020

The Perfect Venue
We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding! Deb (the owner) and Lex were both very accommodating and were able to make all of our visions come to life. They were very flexible when it came to time to decorate, wedding day accommodations, and helping in any way they were able. The barn and surrounding area is beautiful and they are renovating additional buildings for other venue options for all occasions! I would recommend them to anyone :)Sent on 09/17/2019

50th birthday party
It was the best party I could have ever imagined.Food, decoration,lodging for all my friends to stay all the extra activities were more than I expected. Deb makes the party top notch and doesnt skip any details. She has everything covered and if you forgot something she would figure it out. If it was closer to me I would reccomend her to everyone I know it is a special place to have a party.
Thanks Deb and Larry for an amazing 40th party unforgettable memories
