Weddings

The Historic Henry Breeding Farm is the perfect location for your celebration. The 3,500 square foot barn and grounds can be rented for all types of events from casual to formal – weddings and receptions, auctions, family gatherings, business conferences and retreats, seminars, dances, and other private events.

Included in the barn rental are 175 folding chairs and 25 (6-foot) tables. The barn will seat 200, so renters may bring in additional chairs or tables if they choose. The barn kitchen has been remodeled, and is equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, and running water. Please note that the barn is neither heated nor air conditioned, and comes with the charm and idiosyncrasies of agricultural use. Under no circumstances is the historic farm house included in any rentals for private events. For additional details and current pricing information, please see Rental Information under the Henry Breeding Farm tab.

A date will not be reserved until a signed contract and payment of the deposit amount have been received in our downtown office. Dates may fill up ten months to a year in advance, so book your event well ahead of time. To view the contract, please see Rental Contract under the Henry Breeding Farm tab.
