Weddings 

A Farm-to-Table Experience

Welcome to our Wedding Page

 We love the beauty of an elegant wedding, but beyond the magic of a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and a farm-to-table reception set under fairy lights, the fun begins at our farm. A fire pit to chill by, wood-fired pizza oven and bar for socializing and tons of activity space: A slackline over our pond, cute farm animals to cuddle, an axe-throwing and archery range for the daring, a creek swimming hole,  u-pick berries, and lots of open space for lawn games.

Offering 2 Free Weddings in 2021 

 

As farmers most of the day is spent with our heads down in the fields, so to speak. Events give us the chance to appreciate the beauty around us, share our space, and grow a different side of our business. We are looking for 2 couples who would like have an elegant wedding and reception at our farm. In exchange for our venue, we would like to use your wedding photos in our marketing. Also we would like to partner with you to build or buy wedding amenities such as chairs, tents, wedding arches, lights and other wedding decor which we can use for future events. 

A Working Farm

 

Our top priority is utilizing this beautiful farmland, a rarity on the Sunshine Coast, to grow food. We have 2 acres of field crops, a hazelnut and apple orchard, greenhouses, and pastureland for heritage chickens and sheep. We sell through numerous streams - Farm Gate, local grocery stores, a CSA, a Food Truck onsite, and our Farm Collective (an online farmer and artisan shopping collective). 

A Farm to Table Reception

 

Using the produce, fruit, nuts, meat and dairy grown on our farm, and from neighbours, we will partner with a local catering service of your choice. Already on site we have The Shortcut Food Truck, serving fast and epic all day breakfasts with a twist. You can test out the menu and talk to Chef Downey about catering your wedding onsite daily from 9-3pm. Let us know if you'd like a list of partner Catering Services. 

The Farm Vision...

We are in a phase of developing our farm amenities. Check back with us to see what new facilities we have added. Below is a map to give you an idea of what the farm looks like. We have not yet built the barn in the picture.
