We have limited capacity for events and on occasion will host weddings, but we are not a full service wedding vendor. All events must be self-organized, meaning we do not supply tents, tables, chairs, meals, decor, portable toilets, etc. Set-up and break-down is the sole responsibility of the guest, we only provide the location and guidance/light assistance. Use of the barn for events is limited, as we use our barn for our farm operations; partial use of the barn may be arranged.
We require guests of an event to purchase:
One-Day Beer and Wine Permit ($36 | https://sla.ny.gov/permits-available-online)
Event Insurance (~$50-80, available from many insurance providers)
Permits and insurance may be provided by catering companies. We suggest Olivers
Tents if desired. We suggest McCarthy Tents and Events
We strongly suggest a catering service
