~About The Barn~
We are on 85 acres of the beautiful Martin farming and ranching land which adds to the rustic, but elegant setting of The Barn. Our 3000 sq.ft. Barn is fully enclosed, climate controlled with A/C & Heating, and consists of a combination of corrugated metal, reclaimed cedar, pine, and cyprus interior walls, and 12 center posts which are ‘lighter’ trees harvested from surrounding forests. This farm structure was built by the old fashioned means of ‘a barn raising,’ only made possible through the help of friends. So there are many personal touches!
We have a Charming Chandelier and loads of Up-lighting in The Barn, rustic décor, table and chair settings to comfortably seat 175 guests, and a dance floor. All under roof and including plenty of areas for your catering, drink station/bar area, DJ/Entertainment etc. Men’s and Women’s restrooms and dressing rooms are located inside the barn venue also.
The Ceremony Site is located just a walk away from The Barn Venue. It is elegantly nestled between the Barn and a prairie pond. The Ceremony Site includes a beautiful natural tree line as the backdrop, wooden bench seating, a wooden arch with a platform and wooden cross. Just a short walk from the Ceremony Site are designated areas under additional up-lighting outside of the Barn Venue for a “Cocktail Hour,” for a fire in our stone firepit with its bench seating, for pictures by either our picture pump waterfall or at the rustic cabin. The Barn at Martin Farms has an unlimited supply of photoshoot backdrops for those most memorable pictures.
The owners and staff of The Barn at Martin Farms hold deeply the safety and welfare of our guests, clients, potential clients, friends, family, and staff members at this time of uncertainty in our nation. Though we are still 'open for business', we are limiting our services to cell phone conferencing for anyone interested in a 'tour,' as well as electronic down payments and contract signings. Our prayers are daily for GOD to contain this entity, bring us together as a nation as we have never been before, and 'heal our land!' Blessing & Peace to all... Stay safe....
