I will also add, regarding the ALCOHOL policy. I do feel that they are entitled to having an alcohol policy. (we had beer, wine, and ONE liquor with mixers we provided) I find this to be a reasonable policy. Although, Jim had a negative attitude about having alcohol at all, and anytime it was discussed he would question why we need alcohol at all.

We had brought all the alcohol in the morning of the wedding, and 2 hours before the wedding we had to tell the staff to put the beer on ice, and chill the wine in which they had done none of.

Guests drinking on the patio were constantly being reminded of the outside drinking policy, when they were following the policy. (Which we had prior arrangements with jim about what he would, and would not allow for us in taking alcohol on the patio) Again, where the lack of communication comes into play between staff & management. The groomsmen while at the venue waiting for the ceremony to start were not allowed a drop of alcohol, Not even a beer to relax.

Having such a strict alcohol policy we found to be completely understandable and responsible of the venue, although we found them to be a little over the top and sometimes rude in enforcing their policy.

I absolutely love the country barn. Everything was beautiful and the food was fantastic. I just wish there was the ability for only one event going on per day to reduce stress of having more than one wedding at your venue during your big day.

Over all experience was great with country barn, but i will be honest in my review.

We had many guests comment to us how if it were not for seeing familiar faces, they would not know where to go as they did not know the difference between the stable, barn/barn loft etc. We WERE instructed that they did not provide signs instructing guests where to go, although Jim DID tell us that he would be out directing "traffic" and helping to park cars. Jim was NO WHERE to be found. instead, while we were setting up our venue we had guests from the other wedding, walking through our venue, touching things, looking at things etc. My bridesmaids parents and I instead, were found to be directing guests from another wedding on where to go.

As far as writing things down. DO SO. Jim is NOT consistent in things he tells you. One setting he would tell us one thing and the next he would tell us the opposite. So whatever questions you may have as well as answers you get from Jim, make sure to write it down he will not go by what he once said unless you have written it down. As far as communication goes, jim and his employees do not communicate well with each other, as i said before, jim will say one thing and his help/coordinators will say another.

We also found, along with other reviews, at the end of the day they did what we wanted and asked, but not without a fight. Jim would not so much argue, but he would try and talk you out of certain ideas. I also would ask questions and he would stop me in the middle to tell me that i need to change my attitude. In his defense he wanted me to know that on my wedding day i need to not stress out. But as other brides will understand, if you have a question you want an answer.

I will say, our food was WONDERFUL, the atmosphere/setting was great, and Candice the event coordinator for our venue, was WONDERFUL. She answered all questions, returned all calls and emails promptly and was open to any ideas/ changes we had! She was great!

Our ceremony and reception at the Country Barn was amazing. Everyone raved about how awesome the food was and how beautiful the venue is (and it was!). Farmer Jim was awesome to work with. He's laid back and we meshed well. The grounds are amazing for pictures as well. After the ceremony, we did the hay ride and camp fire, which was such a fun way to end our evening.

Farmer Jim owns and runs the country barn. His venue is a working farm and he has restored an 1800s farm into the perfect setting for a ceremony and reception. All of my guests could not get over how beautiful the barn was and how unique of a venue it really was. Farmer Jim was so easy to work with and so kind when dealing with us. He takes great pride in making sure his bride and groom are happy and that their wishes/needs are met. I would recommend this place to everyone. The staff is friendly and there was not one thing out of place on our wedding day.

We can't say enough about how hard Farmer Jim, Candice and the entire Country Barn family worked to make our wedding as close to perfect as you can get. (Minus the rain showers) and if they could have changed the weather, they would have. Any idea we came up with they accomplished. The interior is simply stunning and their food was outstanding! Thank you seems inadequate for the superior service, professionalism, kindness and personal interaction they gave us every step of the way. If you want a perfect, dream wedding - choose the Country Barn.

We can't say enough positive things about working with Farmer Jim and his staff. They made all my dreams come true. From the beginning meeting and falling in love with the location to the final day of all the events, it was all worth all the hard work to see the amazing payoff. The food was incredible, I loved the fact that it was farm to table. They were on top of it!!! The venue it's self is just beautiful!! I can't say thank you enough to all of them.

Absolutely delicious! The people at the Country Barn saved my life! They were able to offer me everything I wanted for my wedding in a complete package at a very affordable price. We chose to have a pig roast in the spirit of our fall country wedding theme. The people could not have been nicer to work with, the food was fresh and delicious and very beautifully presented on an antique wagon at my request (instead of a buffet table). They were willing to work with me to put together the wedding of my dreams in a very unique, enjoyable setting. I LOVE this place and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!
