We have a whole "stall" of freebie decor pieces such as log rounds, lanterns, wash tins, shepherd crooks, and a slew of various chalkboard signs.
We have already strung lights in the barn, in the dance hall, and in many areas outside the barn so that you have the ambiance needed and the light available to enjoy the outside activities into the night.
Within the cover of the barn, we have a lounge that includes two restrooms for the ladies, one for the gents and then a "family restroom" which has a handicapped toilet and a baby changing station.
We have no kitchen but a workstation for the caterer's which has two refrigerators and a small deep chest freezer so you can store your ice.
Vendor Suggestion Page
We allow our brides to choose their own vendors but we do offer a Vendor Suggestion Page which contains only vendors who have come to the farm - we have seen them conduct themselves as professionals AND we have received a positive review from our bride.
We do allow beer, wine, and champagne (only). We do have a few stipulations including that we require a licensed bartender who comes with the required liquor liability insurance. We do have a great bar under roof that helps keep the clutter of the bottles behind the counter.
At the night's end, HP Farms will handle your clean up to return the farm back to its normal state - plus dispose of all bottles and garbages. (Your caterer is required to handle her own garbage.)
Are there extra services or rentals that High Point Farms offers? Yes!
