The Perfect Venue
I don’t even know where to start. Our day was absolutely perfect. We had our ceremony and reception here and had catering and wedding planning services with The Farm as well.
My husband and I live in Germany and found this venue through Instagram (I’m originally from Virginia and he’s from South Carolina). I was dreading wedding planning, especially with being overseas, but The Farm honestly made it so easy! From our first point of contact, to talking with the Chef (Satima) and working with our wedding coordinator (Jennifer) everyone was so friendly and accommodating! It truly was an all inclusive venue offering all the services including a place to stay for us and our family and friends, catering, and they have an array of decorations that you can use. This includes chairs, tables, napkins, table cloths, etc... Our coordinator Jennifer even worked with our florist to decide what designs would look best. It was everything I was looking for!
We loved all of it! And Jennifer was an awesome coordinator! Our moms and sisters stepped in for us at the food tasting and they loved her! She also pinned my dress up for me since my bustle wasn’t working during my wedding. She is just so unbelievably sweet and we LOVED working with her!
I truly cannot say enough good things, but my husband and I 100% would recommend this venue! And we suggest you use their on site cabins too, it makes things that much easier the day of!Sent on 03/16/2020

Amazing and Unique Venue
We love the Farm so much and are so happy we got married there. We originally booked in July 2019 for November 2020. Clearly, so much changed in that time but I thought the Farm did an incredible job of making adjustments and pivots to make our day possible. They built a gorgeous pavilion and outdoor firepit which allowed us to have a small gathering outside in a way in which we felt really safe and ended up being very cool and special. The whole team at the Farm is great and went above and beyond to help us. We had a great call with the planning and business folks to discuss all our options and also to get more information on all the things they were doing to keep guests safe. It was so informative and helpful for us to make our decision about whether or not to even move forward. The kitchen staff and chef are also top class. Our menu planning was so incredibly fun and our food was just fabulous. We got a lot of compliments on the food and also the wedding in general just being very unique and fun.Sent on 01/17/2021

Perfect for our elopement!
We seriously could not have asked for a better experience! After we decided to postpone our big celebration to late 2021, my husband and I decided we wanted to elope on our originally planned wedding date. I was looking for a venue that would make the process easy and stress-free and reached out to The Farm to see if they could help us plan an elopement celebration for 10 of our closest family and friends. The team at The Farm was so responsive and made the entire process so easy. The elopement package even included beautiful decorations. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and our in-house planner Elizabeth was just amazing. I am so grateful for The Farm for helping to make our elopement day absolutely perfect.Sent on 11/07/2020

Nice venue with a really nice staff close to Asheville but still in the country.
We've shot a couple weddings at The Farm now and the experience has always been the same, WONDERFUL!! Friendly and helpful staff, amazing layout, decor, and backdrops for photos, not to mention the mountain views, horses, and natural layout & colors. If you are planning a wedding no matter how laid back or fancy, and you are looking for that farm or rustic feel, definitely check out The Farm, you won't be disapointed!
Beautiful venue! Friendly staff!
