You are welcome to use any of our large parking areas around the farm. Please do not park directly in front of the farm store, as those spaces should be used by store visitors only. We recommend that parties in the Event Pavilion park directly in front of it, and Red Barn parties may park in the blacktop next to the Red Barn or in the field across it. Ice house and wooded pavilion parties may park in front of the Inn, near the large event pavilion, or at the Red Barn. All overflow parking is in the field across from the Red Barn or field across from the Inn parking lot. 

The farm is very large and can be a little bit overwhelming if you are not familiar with the layout before your party. We recommend that you come anytime during our farm  store hours to map things out. You can also see our farm map here. Additionally, store or any farm staff would be happy to direct you. For those renting a small wooden pavilion, please check in at the store before proceeding to a pavilion.
