Rachel from "The Farm" was very professional in helping us bring our daughter's wedding to fruition in only 6 weeks to plan....They got engaged on Christmas Day and married Valentines Day. Gordon and Crystal had an awesome wedding day and things went very smoothly. We used Dana from the (Golden Corrall in Smithfield NC) to cater for us...they were very professional, affordable, and the food was great. Our DJ (Steven Dail w/ Out of this World Entertainment ...check him out on Facebook from Snow Hill NC) was fabulous, very professional and entertaining and our photographer (Tiffany & Phillip Johnson from Wilson NC) were the BEST! Find them on Facebook at Tiffany L. Johnson Photography & Design. She and her husband tag teamed for the wedding and our photos were phonomenal! We couldn't have picked a better place to have this once in a life time event for our daughter and we would highly recommend "The Farm" to anyone!

We rented this venue for two days for the rehearsal and the wedding (ceremony and reception). The wedding manager was very nice and helpful. The venue is beautiful! The only down fall I would give this place is the additional price they charge if you wanted to have an outside ceremony, however, the venue was still very wonderful and worth the money!
