A Venue For Retreats, Group Activities & Rustic Celebrations

Our mission at Finnriver is to nourish deep-rooted & fruitful connections among people and the land that sustains us.   We are glad to welcome groups that seek an authentic rural setting for their events, retreats or celebrations. Finnriver can host groups ranging from 10-300 people and we have a menu of group activity options listed below. Contact James Robinson for information & rates: 360-732-4337 or

Pleaese note that while we love animals and keep chickens, sheep, a farm dog and other critters here, we cannot allow visiting pets on the land. The farm is also smoke-free.

This is a working farm, with heaps of rural charm and beauty, and group events here are best suited for folks willing to wear farm boots, talk to chickens and sit on wooden benches!

Groups of under 10 people are always welcome to come visit the farm, walk the self-guided path around the land and do a cider and wine tasting in the Cider Shed ($5 per person).

For groups of 10 or more, please make an advance reservation for one of the options offered below:


If your group of ten or more wants to simply gather on the farm, enjoy the rural setting and drink cider, we will either reserve the 'Trough Table' for you or provide a tent with tables and chairs and a tub of chilled cider and glasses.  Space rental rates vary according to the nature of the event.  You can purchase and drink your cider by the bottle, with a 10% discount for all group cider/wine purchases.


For your group of ten or more, we offer an educational and entertaining guided cider and  wine tasting for $10/person. Tastings last approx. one hour, with an array of 5 ciders and several of our spirited dessert wines; includes crackers, local jelly & a small treat.





We want to make Finnriver a great resource for non-profit organizations seeking a location for board retreats, fundraising soirees, community events and more.  Non-profits receive disounted rates on use of the facility, as well as significant discounts on cider.



Doing a private wine & cider tasting at Finnriver can be a unique rustic bachelor or bachelorette activity! 


If your group represents a market, restaurant or pub that carries Finnriver products, we would like to welcome you here and would be delighted to roll out the green carpet for you. Contact us at: to book a complementary tour or private tasting.
