    Best wedding ever!

    We just had our wedding last weekend and The Farm and it was THE BEST experience!!! Not only is the property gorgeous, but they made planning a wedding in NC from 3,000 miles away SO easy and stress-free! Our coordinator Shannon was super helpful and communicative and made it so that we did not have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. We also rented out most of the cabins on the property for the weekend and our friends and family who stayed there absolutely loved it.

    One of the best things about The Farm is the food is absolutely incredible. Having good food was very important to us and the menu coordinator and chef worked very closely with us to design a menu that reflected both of our cultures. We had so many people come up to us afterwards and say that it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding! They also worked with us to create the most delicious signature cocktails ever!!!

    Thank you Shannon, Satima, Chef Mike and the rest of The Farm staff for helping us create the most unforgettable and magical wedding weekend!

    The Farm's reply:

    Robin and Jorge - Thanks so much for your kind words. We had a blast planning with you and loved your custom entrees and his/her signature cocktails that incorporated your family heritages. Yum!
    Your preview pictures are stunning, and we can't wait to see the final versions!

    All inclusive, smooth, great food, great staff

    The Farm is the best! I was looking for a place that was all inclusive and would allow me to show up on my special day and not have to worry about a thing! I literally came to property 30 minutes before our ceremony and had plenty of time because the staff handles everything. My mother and several family members rented cabins on property and it was a great gathering place for after the ceremony. Melissa is a joy to work with and makes the process so smooth. A month later I am still getting compliments on chief Mike’s food. Even in the dead of winter our pictures were beautiful with the many back drops available on site. My wedding was perfect and I owe it all to the team!

    The Farm's reply:

    Beka and Lance - We're thrilled that we were able to celebrate such an important day with one of our own team members. The crisp January day was made to order! We loved your shoe game and your hilarious friend who was your emcee for the day. We wish you all the best!!!

    Highly recommend!

    My husband and I were married at The Farm on 12/4/21. From the moment I saw The Farm's photos and reviews on The Knot, I knew this was my venue. After going to visit, we were both absolutely sold. The staff clearly know what they are doing and are a well oiled machine, the grounds and building are gorgeous, and it fit what I was going for. A lot of people seem to gravitate towards super rustic weddings in barns, but that was not quite my style. The Farm fit a perfect balance of rustic, but more elegant and upscale. Anything we wanted or envisioned for our wedding, they could do for us or had done before (within reason and weather permitting of course). We took advantage of the onsite cabins, which was fantastic for getting ready and ending the day - no driving or walking very far! Our day-of coordinator Shannon was amazing, I am prone to lots of anxiety and she really made everything as stress free as possible in the month and days leading up to the wedding. I'm also the kind of person who doesn't believe anything can be perfect, something always goes wrong right? Wrong, our wedding was absolutely perfect and if anything went wrong, I surely was not aware! I was able to turn over wedding favors, send-off materials, photos, table place cards, etc. to Shannon and never had to worry about those things again. They were all put out for us and anything needing to go home with us was put together carefully and placed in our cabin at the end of the night. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all set up beautifully and exactly how I envisioned. We were able to have lawn games since the weather was so nice, but also a hot chocolate and apple cider bar that was decorated beautifully and was a huge hit. The food was amazing, many of our friends and family still talk about how delicious the appetizers were and dinner was a hit as well! The staff made sure we found time to sit down and eat, they were super attentive to us, but even so we were given any remaining leftovers (including slices of our cake!) to take with us that night. Last but certainly not least, it was a fantastic place for photos! Our wedding photos that we took all over the grounds came out phenomenal. I couldn't be happier that we chose the Farm and I would highly recommend it!

    The Farm's reply:

    Dana -- We are thrilled that you had such a wonderful day! The whole Farm Team loved working with you to make all your wedding visions come true. It was the most beautiful winter wedding!!! We LOVE hearing that your day was stress free – those are some of our favorite words!

    We can’t wait to gush over your photos galleries – particularly your elegant snowfall grand exit. Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness!
