PLEASE NOTE: We are now fully retired and we closed our Wedding/Event Services at the end of the 2015 season.

For the benefit of our past wedding guests who wish to reminisce, we are leaving our old "Weddings" page here (below) for your enjoyment.

Rustic Country Weddings

Intimate or large, Willow Pond Farmstead is an ideal place for May and October country wedding. Guests appreciate our charm while your florists, caterers, photographers, DJ's and officiants will appreciate our farm's wedding support facilities and easy access from the intersection of I-40 and I-95 (only 12 miles away).


We offer quality - not volume - services. Accordingly, we are open and available only in the months of May and October.  For full particulars about our country weddings, please click HERE!


We believe farm weddings are far too special to be rushed - so our rental period extends across an ENTIRE WEEKEND (but no overnights, please)!  You and your guests will not be herded out prematurely to make way for the next wedding.  Our goal is to provide a joyous, relaxing, and stress-free special day for everyone!


We let you choose which of our many wedding facilities will best suit your dreams.  Included are two lakeside buildings (one is a circa 1940 tobacco barn - now a heritage museum with a large screened porch built over "Lake" Fran that comfortably seats 50; the other is a rustic barn that seats 100).  Occasionally, larger wedding parties place their own tent between these buildings.  We even offer hayrides and, for the bride, our beautifully restored 1926 Ford Model T "limousine!"  Rain or shine, we can prepare for whatever works for you and your wedding party.


No matter where on the farmstead you decide to hold your wedding ceremony and reception, two fully furnished suites (each with private bath) await you and your party during rental hours.

Bonus - Endangered Breeds Support

All farm wedding receipts go directly to the support and maintenance of the Farmstead's collection of rare and endangered breeds of livestock, waterfowl and poultry.


For more about these creatures, please visit this website's "Our Rare Breeds" area.
