Q: Do you allow outside catering?
A: Yes, we welcome the insured and full service caterer of your choice. We will also provide a catering list of our tried + true favorites!
Q: Can we bring our own alcohol?
A: Yes, we'll provide a list of bartending services for you to choose from, ranging in hourly bartending where you can stock your own bar to full service or cash bar. Sorry, guests are not allowed to bring in outside alcohol.
Q: Are food trucks allowed?
A: Yes! We can accommodate up to three food trucks in our courtyard (or two food trucks + one beer van/photo bus/etc.)
Q: What is the max capacity?
Q: Is the barn air conditioned/heated?
A: The barn is an open-air venue and is cooled with fans and heated with patio heaters. The bridal suite, bathrooms and kitchen have central air and heat.
Q: Are there any other required costs in addition to the venue rental?
A: The only other item we require for renters is event insurance, which typically runs $99-125. We'll provide a link to purchase online, or you can go through your renter's/homeowner's insurance. We can also provide linens and draping at an additional cost. All other in-house décor is included with your rental.
Q: What are the roles of the venue staff before and during our event?
A: Our venue manager or coordinator will work with you to personalize your layout so that the day of your event all tables and chairs are in place when you arrive. As your guests arrive we'll help direct parking and assist with a golf cart if needed. During your event we'll clean up spills, take out the trash, make sure bathrooms are stocked, turn on the fire pit, etc. While we'll do our best to handle any other issues that pop up, we recommend having an event planner/coordinator so that you and your loved ones are able to relax and fully enjoy your day.
Q: Can I have my dog/horse/alpaca/etc. in my wedding ceremony?
A: Yes! The beauty of farm life is that animals are welcome to be a part of your ceremony! However, please keep your fur or feathered friend on a leash and have someone take them home or to a safe place off site before the reception begins.
Q: Are those your goats?
A: Yes, our pygmy goats Daisy and Shadow have been living on the farm for nearly 10 years and are having a blast meeting new friends! Daisy has some black markings on her face and Shadow is all gray. Their favorite snack is kale and Daisy isn't pregnant, she's just fluffy.
"The inside of the barn has so much charm, I didn't feel the need to incorporate many decorations because the barn was enough. My wedding day was hands down my best day ever, and I owe much of that to Tobacco Barn Farm. If I could do it over again, I'd choose them again and again."
