Will there be signage to know when I arrive to the farm?

No, the farm does not have any signage. Be on the lookout for the house numbers (2283) on the black mailbox or on the fence. 

What kind of shoes should I wear?

You will be walking on grass, gravel, and limestone dust while at the farm. Most of the surfaces on the farm are uneven terrain. Also, the bathrooms for guests are approximately 100 yards away from the reception area. Please dress accordingly or bring a second pair of shoes.

Where are the bathrooms? 

The bathrooms are located in the carriage house, the white building to the left of the farmhouse. Follow the stone walkaway to the women's bathrooms and continue around the corner to the men's. 

Will I be allowed to tour the farmhouse?

Unfortunately, the farmhouse is reserved for the wedding party only and immediate family. Our couple's request that any other family members and guests remain outside to allow them to have a few minutes of privacy before the ceremony. Secondly, the house is immediately locked once the reception begins so tours or other uses of the farmhouse are not permitted. 

Can I bring my own alcohol?

No. Any outside alcohol will be confiscated and the guest will be asked to leave the premises. Only alcohol brought as a gift and remained unopened throughout the entirety of the event will be allowed.
