We also require a refundable damage deposit. All fees are subject to change until event is under contract. If your needs are not covered here, please ask for a customized quote.
 
Food and Catering
If you are serving food to more than 50 guests, we highly recommend and prefer that you hire a a caterer. Your caterer must provide full service, including a bartender(s) and adequate staff to serve, maintain and clean up after food service. You may furnish your own beer or wine with no corkage fees from the venue. Please ask your caterer to remove garbage and recyclables at the conclusion of the event.  If you cook a meal for 50 guests or fewer, we require that you provide adequate servers and help with cleaning. We require that you remove all garbaage and recyclables. Bartender(s) must be used for the full duration of beverage service.
 
Parking and/or Transportation
Parking on-site is available for  weddings of around 175  guests or fewer.  For larger events, a shuttle service is likely necessary.  

Event Planners
Hiring an event planner means that you'll be able to fully enjoy your wedding or special occasion. Event planners offer a variety of different services and happily tailor their services according to your needs. We can recommend wonderful event planners in our area. 
 
What about the farm?
First and foremost, Ivy Creek is a working farm. The event venue is surrounded by our farm fields and farm activities. We produce delicious, fresh food for thousands of people each week. Because this is the case, there are areas of the farm that are not open to event guests. These areas include the hoop houses, propogation house, packing house, Littman family house, and apprentice housing,  We also ask that guests stay on the main paths around the fields and do not walk into the fields or between the rows of vegetables. We cannot allow pets on the farm. We're eager to help guests enjoy and explore the farm safely and responsibly. 

 
 
“One year ago today we got married on your farm, how cool is that? We're still incredibly grateful for how lovely that day was and how special you made us feel. Don't you forget.

Cheers.
