Common Questions

A wedding at our farm is an event that will be discussed by friends and family for years. We make sure it all goes smoothly by offering you and your guests friendly, professional service with great attention to detail. 


Following is a list of common questions and answers: 

How do we reserve our date?

We will hold your date with a non-refundable deposit. However, if you cancel within one week of booking, we will refund all but $100. The fees are listed on the "Wedding Pricing" page.

Additional payment information:

50% of your estimated total bill is due four months prior to your wedding date. Final payment is expected one week before your wedding date and is based on the final guest count given at that time.

When can we rehearse?

We allow up to 1 hour for rehearsals. Thursday evening or Friday morning rehearsals are free of charge. Friday morning rehearsals need to be completed by 12pm. Friday evening rehearsals require a $1,000 fee and need to be booked within 1 month of your wedding date. Utilize our beautiful setting for your rehearsal dinner too. There is a fee for rehearsal dinner of $100 for finger food, $250 for a sit down dinner and $400 for any meal in September and October. Dinner location will be determined by other events that may be occurring at the farm simultaneously. *Exception: $1,000 Advance Reservation fee for Friday rehearsals includes optional rehearsal dinner set up.

Can we serve alcohol?

Yes--provided it is supplied by Bars by Butch.

Who can cater our reception?

We have certain caterers that we strongly recommend based on the type of food you would like to serve but you are welcome to go off the list (as long as they are approved by Post Family Farm). See our "Preferred Vendors" list for more information on our preferred caterers. The set up fee for preferred caterers is $150 and $650 for non-preferred caterers. 

Can we bring in our own additional decorations?

Yes! We encourage brides and grooms to put their signature on their event by adding decorations that reflect their vision of the "perfect" wedding. We do ask, however, that any additional decorations be discussed with us in advance. (*Note: open flames are not permitted in the 1915 Barn. Staples and nails are not permitted anywhere) We have a variety of centerpieces that are available to be used at no additional cost. Bringing your own centerpieces will not reduce the reservation price.

When can we decorate?

Any additional decorations you choose to add to your selected wedding site may be placed on the day of your wedding, during your reserved time. We offer our service to help put up your basic decoration, free of charge, upon our discretion. For further assistance, in your detailed decoration set up, there is a fee of $25/hour/person with a $25 minimum. Note: Any additional decorations you provide must be cleaned up when your party leaves, unless other arrangements have been made.

Who is responsible for setting up and cleaning up?

Post Family Farm staff is responsible for setting up and cleaning up all the tables, chairs, table covering, and any decorations we provide. You are responsible for removing any decorations you provide. We supply garbage cans during your event and a trash and recycle dumpster is also available for your clean-up convenience. 

** Note: All prices subject to change, unless we have a signed reservation contract with deposit.**
