Here are the answers to some of our potential clients' most burning questions when they reach out to us. If we did not answer your question here, send us an email and we will help in any way we can!
About the Venue
How do I schedule a tour?
Please send us an email with tour in the subject line or complete the contact form. Be sure to give us your name and contact info and let us know what kind of event you would like to have. You may also leave a voicemail or text. We will schedule an appointment with you at our earliest availability.
Do you have a maximum capacity?
We can host events with 300+ guests, but we love to have smaller crowds too!
Do you have indoor options?
Our indoor dining hall is perfect for dinner parties and gatherings with 75 or so guests. The dining hall is not optimized for wedding ceremonies or receptions.
The reception space includes a large. covered pavilion.
If you reserved the Belvedere and rain is in the forecast, you can let us know 5 days in advance and we will move your ceremony to the covered pavilion if needed and refund the extra fee. Many guests have also brought clear umbrellas to the farm and had a marvelous rainy day wedding.
How much is the venue rental fee and where is it located?
You can find our pricing tiers here. Each tier includes complete access to the reception area + the indoor kitchen, groom and bridal suites. Rental items are also available upon request. Use of the pond Belvedere is an additional $500. Compared to many venues, we are a great deal! We are in Simpsonville, SC and conveniently located about 30 minutes from downtown Greenville. Our venue offers you lots of space and privacy.
I'm a photographer. Can I bring clients to your venue for sessions?
Absolutely! Please send us an email to reserve a time. We charge $25 to use our venue. You can find out more info here.
Can I use the kitchen for my event? How much is it?
You can use the kitchen at no additional charge for warming and storing food and beverages. There is a $250 fee to prepare food or use our utensils, pots, pans, etc. You or your caterer must clean the kitchen at the end of the night.
If using our on-site chef, this fee is included in his service.
I have a tour or appointment, where do I go once I arrive?
When you arrive at the farm, the gate will be open. If it is not, please give us a call. You will drive straight ahead toward Event Parking. Follow the signs. If you have any trouble, we are happy to help you.
A golf cart is available for visitors who have difficulty walking. Please let us know in advance if you'd prefer this option.
What accommodations are available for the elderly and those who use walking or other mobility aids?
A four-passenger golf cart is available for rent to transport loved ones to and from the ceremony and reception sites. Please reserve at least 3 days prior to your event so it can be cleaned and fully charged. You are welcome to let a designated friend or family member drive our cart.
If you have your own golf cart, you are welcome to bring it or use your vehicle instead though vehicles are not allowed to stay in sight of the ceremony.
Restrooms on the farm are also ADA accessible and include a baby changing table and handrails.
There are concrete walkways all around the property, but not in every location.
Is the farm pet friendly?
Yes! We love pets and have a few of our own. Please let us know if you plan to bring a dog to the farm. They must be leashed and monitored at all times. Please pick up and properly dispose of any presents they leave behind. Pets are not allowed indoors.
How do I reserve my date on your calendar?
A $500 nonrefundable deposit is required to cement your wedding or other social engagement on our calendar. If multiple parties are interested in the same date, we will inform everyone. The first party to submit their payment secures the date. Should you need to cancel or reschedule your event, the original deposit may be applied to a future engagement but cannot be refunded.
How long can we use the farm on the day of our event?
We allow clients and their guests 14 hours of access on the day of their event. This includes preparation and cleanup. We ask music to stop at 11:00 pm so cleanup can begin. If you'd like to extend your party or reception, you must let us know in advance and pay an additional fee.
After the event, what are our responsibilities?
You are responsible for taking home anything you brought with you that is not ours. If renting our decorative items, tables, chairs, or food service items, etc. we will clean those up for you.
We understand it can be difficult to clean up at the end of a long day! If you need to leave any decorations or belongings overnight, we ask you pick them up as early as possible the next morning. If we have an event the next day, we may ask you to get everything you can that night.
Please ensure you throw away trash into the proper bins. Our team will dispose of the bags throughout the night and maintain the bathrooms.
Please do not use confetti, balloons with confetti, glitter, feather boas, or other messy decorations that will be difficult to pick up.
