Heartland Farms was established in September of 2015 when we opened our corn maze and pumpkin patch. This was ultimately the start of the business, the corn maze and pumpkin patch runs every year late September thru October. Then the question began, "Can we get married here?!" Well sure we thought! By the end of May 2016 we had our beautiful 3,500 square foot event building complete. With rough cut oak throughout as well as a jaw dropping pine finished ceiling it is something worth seeing! Our additional building connected to the event building has full inside living quarters making it the ultimate bride and grooms dream wedding. With two huge bedrooms overlooking the farm it makes for a great area to spend the night, get ready the day of the wedding, and truly have the wedding you have always dreamed of. Our venue also works great for parties in general whether it be a birthday party, wedding shower, baby shower, reunion, or whatever you have in mind!
We're dreamers, but even in our wildest dreams, we never expected to own a wedding and celebration venue. It happened when several sweet couples found our farm, fell in love, and persuaded us to open our 125 year old farm for their wedding day. We quickly learned that these couples had become part of our family story. That is pretty special. We believe it's important to share with couples the story of how we came to host weddings. Because we didn't set out to open a sought-after wedding venue, we don't have a team of investors with expectations or a quota for the number of weddings we have to book each year. We host weddings and celebrations because we love sharing our farm with couples who love it too. We are a family and staff that genuinely cares about you and the details of your big day, and a venue that consistently earns glowing reviews for going above and beyond. We believe firmly you aren't a "number" or a "package". When you get married at Haue Valley, you become part of our story and part of our family. http://hauevalleyweddings.com
These are just a few that we have worked with in the past....more to come!
