~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 open for events and appointments for tours, we are sensitive to the desires of our visitors as to this issue. We have masks, gloves, sanitizers, and lots of room for social distancing at the requests of our visitors and clients. ~Our prayers are daily for GOD to contain this entity, bring us all together as a nation as we have never been before, and 'heal our land!' Blessings & Peace to All...

“First, let's start with this, I have been to this property before this barn was built several times of my life, practically felt like my home on the weekends, I was able to see this built from start to finish.. and not only is it the perfect rustic atmosphere out in the country but every inch of it was built with love. The owners of this beautiful rustic dream come true is two of the most generous, honest, and loving people you will ever encounter. They are REAL, they are every bit of a classy country and a whole lot of living for Jesus in all they do. I have known them since I was a little girl and I have seen them handle so many different things in life and it's always been done with such respect that it's admirable, even in situations that they were poorly treated they still handled it all with grace and forgiveness. I admire the owners of this beautiful place, I guarantee you that you will love them.. they are just the type of people that all you gotta do is meet them once and you ...”

“Such a beautiful and amazing VENUE! I would have booked with this venue if I had already not booked another! The owners are SOOOOO SWEET! They work very hard and put there all into this Venue. They do not only book weddings here, but you can book it for corporate events, family reunions, etc. Also, it is VERY REASONABLY PRICED! You will NOT find another venue as beautiful and classy as this one or such a great price.”
