It is with a grateful heart that we welcome you to the newest addition to our farm. The Farmstead is a newly updated wedding and event venue in Blairs, Virginia. Our location offers rustic charm and southern hospitality, featuring a brand new reception hall, an authentic tobacco barn original to our farm that we call the Tavern, and two outdoor ceremony areas overlooking beautiful farm scenery.
Our family purchased this farm in the 1950s and we never imagined just how much it would evolve over the years. From a tobacco farm to a strawberry patch, to now a cattle operation and wedding venue.
Our reception hall seats up to 250 guests with shiplapped walls and exposed beams; complete with bridal quarters and back deck. The entire facility is heated and air-conditioned and handicap accessible.
Our newest project has been brewing in our hearts for years--and is finally becoming a reality. Starting this summer, we will be offering our brides fresh from the field wedding flowers from our brand new flower garden. The 35 x 70-foot expanse is filled with long-stem cut flowers and greenery perfect for wedding work. Giving couples the ability to request flower varieties and the opportunity to physically pick and arrange the flowers for their day is something we love offering.
We are a family farm and we are so lucky to spend our days working together. Simple, fresh, and timeless is what we believe and we invite you to share your special day with us.

The Farmstead was just perfect for our daughters wedding! This venue is not only beautiful but the service we received was incredible. The catering service was the best we have ever experienced. Our guests raved about the food and the pricing is very fair. We would definitely consider this venue for our next event. This venue is second to none in the Danville area!Sent on 11/09/2016

I could not recommend Gentleman's Ridge enough. The venue is gorgeous, the food is delicious, and the people are absolutely wonderful. You won't regret choosing them.Sent on 11/01/2016

The venue itself is fantastic. We were supposed to have our wedding outside, but wound up inside because of rain. The banquet hall is so nice it almost seemed like we had planned to have the ceremony inside the whole time. Susan is always easy to get a hold of and willing to help in anyway she can. We were able to visit the venue multiple times with questions and she never rushed us. On top of that we were able to set up on Wednesday, which gave us time to breath and relax before the wedding on Saturday. (Note: This is not ALWAYS an option if there are other events booked during the week.) The catering is amazing and having it on site is very helpful. Her staff is very professional and helped make our wedding day go by smoothly. I worked as a professional wedding videographer for years and I can tell you this is one of the best options in this area, if not the best. Give them a visit, look at pictures taken there, and ask around. You will be happy you gave Gentleman's Ridge a chance.Sent on 11/01/2016
