Room Rental

L&A Family Farms would like to share with our customers our beautiful facilities and our farm.  We are now offering our Barn Loft Room for rental.  This room would be great for birthday parties, anniversaries, family reunions, group outings, wedding rehearsal dinners, or conferencing.  The loft will accommodate approximately 50 people.  A projector and screen are available if needed.  This room is located upstairs, but if climbing stairs is a problem we do have a chair lift.  The loft has a bathroom and also has an outside deck which overlooks the farm.  The room is decorated with wood siding and has multiple windows overlooking the farm and woods.  The Barn Loft meeting room is set up with tables and chairs, and if you would like to provide a meal during your event we have teamed up with a caterer.  The caterer will prepare L&A Family Farms meats and vegetables (in season) for the meal.  While here visit our farm store and take time to have a stroll around our working farm.  You can visit our animals, look at our gardens, or walk our nature trails.  Or sign up for a guided farm tour on our tractor-driven hayride (additional fee).  Our wagon has fold-up stairs with double hand rails.  If you can climb stairs, you will have no problem getting on or off the wagon.  Tours will be led by either Brian or Kevin and are weather dependent.   We will strive to meet your needs and make your visit to our farm memorable.
