A Venue For Rustic Celebrations

Finnriver is a 33 acre organic family farm where we grow good food and operate an artisan cidery.  We are in earnest pursuit of sustainable agriculture, craft fermentation and community vitality.  Come enjoy a taste of life on the land!

Our mission here is to nourish deep-rooted & fruitful connections among people and the land and we are glad to welcome groups that seek an authentic rural setting for their retreats or celebrations. 

This is a working farm, with rural charm,  but not a manicured event destination.  Farm events here are best suited for folks willing to wear boots, talk to chickens and sit on hay bales!

Finnriver can host groups ranging from 1-100 and we can work with you to create an experience that offers a marvelous, memorable rustic adventure.

RETREAT & EVENT RENTALS                          

The Finnriver 22 x 40 outdoor event pavilion is available for rent by groups and private parties.  It can seat 100 individuals in rows of chairs, or up to 60 people at 8 foot tables. Below the pavilion is an open half acre 'meadow,' available for ceremonies or other group gatherings.  Acoustic music is allowed for events (amplified music must be negotiated) and we can refer you to local music-makers (see resources link below).

Rates for rental of the pavilion vary but the basic rate is $100 per hour.  Additional fees are negotiated depending on the size and purpose of the group.

Non-profit organizations may use the pavilion free of charge, depending on availability.

GROUP ACTIVITY OPTIONS

Groups of under 10 people are always welcome to come visit the farm, bring a picnic,  walk the self-guiding path around the land and do a standard cider and wine tasting for $5 per person.

For groups of 10 or more, please make an advance reservation in order to be sure you get superb service when you come.  For groups interested in a private tour or other tailored activities, we can offer the following customized options.  These prices are all adaptable, depending on your group goals.  Feel free to suggest variations on any of these activities and we can work together to create the right farm experience for you.

WEDDINGS:

We will consider hosting smaller weddings (under 75 people) for couples truly seeking an organic farm wedding and when ALL planning is handled by the couple or a wedding planner.  Our experience has been that a smooth wedding needs a lot of detailed planning and we are unable to offer this service effectively due to our farming and fermenting schedules.  Weddings on our farm also require extra communication so that guests understand the values and appropriate behaviors for a family farm wedding.  These farm values include respect for the land, for our neighbors and for a healthy food culture.

Keep in mind, we are also a lovely place for a rehearsal dinner or a post-wedding brunch for parties of people. Imagine champagne cider mimosas...
