Suncrest Gardens Farm offers a working farm that centers around growing real food in a sustainable way while providing garden habitat and space for community to gather in our beautiful peaceful valley. You can tell that this land is loved and cared for every day. Flowers, gardens, a terraced lawn, and farm animals all come together to create our sacred place. Many have began their marital journeys here, including ourselves. Suncrest Gardens Farm is a natural environment that reflects our stewardship values, love for the outdoors, and life a little less commercialized.
If you feel that our farm may fit your desires, contact Heather to see if a date is available. We limit the amount of weddings here at the farm to allow each of them to be especially catered while still allowing our active farm to maintain its daily operations. We are proud to support all forms of love between people who want to celebrate their commitment to each other.
