Details

What is your season?

We book weddings starting in June until the second week of October.

 

 

What is your rental time frame?

For a relaxing set up and clean up, we book only one wedding a week and provide a multiple day schedule. 

Wednesday - Friday you will have from 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM to set up and have your rehearsal. 

Saturday is for weddings with music ending by 11:00 PM. All parties must vacate the grounds  by 11:30pm.

 

Sunday you will have till 1:00 PM to clean up and take home any personal belongings you left on the property overnight.

 

How late can the event go?

Music ends at the town curfew of 11pm. All parties must vacate the grounds by 11:30pm.

 

Do you provide tables and chairs?

We provide the rental and set up of tables and chairs for an additional fee of $1,000. We have enough banquet tables to seat our barn at full capacity. The chairs are used for the ceremony and for the reception. We set up your tables on Thursday evening and chairs on Saturday morning in your chosen configuration.  We also have additional multi-purpose tables that have a nice farm look that can be used for display of wedding albums, photos, cake, and event decor.

 

If you decide to rent tables or chairs from someone else, we can set them up for you for an additional fee starting at $200. 

How does the bar work? 

The bar is an open bar only, so all beverages must be supplied by you ahead of time. You must supply recipes for any cocktails, garnishes, alcohol and sodas two days prior to the event. Although you have to supply your own alcohol, a perk is that this is a lot more affordable than paying for a catered full service bar.

 

  • We recommend 4 beers, a red and white wine, his/hers cocktail, water, soda and any garnishes you want to supply

  • Ice, napkins, straws and cups are included in our bar service

 

Do you provide bartenders?

We provide bartenders for your event. We require one bartender for every 50 guests.

Each bartender is paid $45 an hour and must be paid cash by the end of the night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What vendors can we use?

All vendors must be approved by the hosts at least one month before the wedding. If you need help finding vendors to work with, we are happy to provide you with a list of the ones who have worked with us here.

 

Do you require a wedding planner?

We are strictly a venue and as hosts we are here to answer any questions you have about the space we provide. We do not coordinate event planning. 

 

We highly encourage you to use a wedding planner so that you can have a successful wedding day. Wedding planners are there to make sure everything runs smoothly and that you have everything booked far enough in advance for our busy season in Door County.  That said, we do not require you have one.

Do you provide any tents?

We provide one large tent for caterers at an additional fee of $200 if they require you to have one.

 

What about parking?

We have a 75 car capacity on the property. Cars are allowed to be parked overnight but must be cleared of the property by 1:00 PM on Sunday.

 

What other services do you provide?
  • Host present on site for answering questions and for emergencies

 

  • Tables and chairs set up. Tables are set up Thursday evening so you can decorate Friday and chairs will be set up Saturday morning for the ceremony then moved indoors for reception seating.

 

  • Bar service- We provide bartenders for your event. See question above.

 

  • Garbage service- we will provide a dumpster for your event but it is your responsibility to make sure all the garbage makes it into the dumpster by the end of the night. The dumpster is not for use for caterers, only the bar and wedding party.

 

We provide all these services to you for no additional fee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What happens in the event of inclement weather?

Weather permitting, the ceremony may be moved to the parlor inside of the barn which fits up to 100 chairs with more space available in the main barn. You and your wedding planner can decide if you’d like to move chairs indoors in this scenario.

How do I book a date?

Contact us by email at hello@aboutthymefarm.com to see if your date is available. Then return your contract signed with the 50% non-refundable down payment.

 

Where are you located? Can I come see the farm?

Baileys Harbor is just a two minute drive away from our farm at 8425 County Road F with many restaurants, a brewery, beaches, and waterfront park. Our farm is not open to the public but we are happy to schedule a walk through with you.

What makes us unique?

Our farm is truly a special place partly because this is still a working farm.  All of the organic vegetables from our half acre garden take the short trip to the Baileys Harbor farmers market every Sunday to be sold to our friends and neighbors. 

 

We provide an open bar service which means major savings for you. We also have tables and chairs on the property which is one less thing for you to have to rent. Since we, the hosts also live on the property, we are available on the day of your wedding. We are so happy to be able to share this beautiful property with others for such a meaningful event.
