First opened to the public in 2016, this amazing property includes a one-acre, spring-fed pond, covered pavilion, fields of wildflowers, and farm and mountain views. It is the perfect place for you to enjoy a day in the mountains. Hike our mountain trails, or sit by the pond to observe the birds, deer, rabbits, and butterflies that make the farm their home. But the real magic of this place is found at night, sitting around the fire pit, gazing at the stars, and listening to the songs of the evening creatures.
The 1500-square-foot pavilion offers a comfortable, protected setting with ceiling fans, wifi, food prep area, cafe lights, and restrooms while allowing unobstructed views of the pond, the countryside and mountains beyond. Clear drop-down sidewalls provide shelter from rain and cool temperatures. Nearby, a 6,000 square foot lawn is the perfect place for a tent, lawn games or group activities. Large grassy fields and coves give groups additional choices for meetings, performances and ceremonies. A new, two-bedroom cottage can be rented for overnight stays. Parking is conveniently located onsite. The Farm at Green Heron Pond accommodates formal and informal events for both large and small groups at reasonable rates. You may bring any vendor of your choice, or select from our list of preferred vendors.
Your perfect farm wedding reception venue
Imagine your wedding weekend at the Farm at Green Heron Pond…
Choose from two outdoor ceremony sites — a pier overlooking the pond, or a grassy cove with panoramic views of the forest and mountains beyond. For your reception, the modern Pavilion has a paneled cathedral ceiling, ceiling fans, and built-in cafe lights. The adjacent, 6,000 square-foot Event Lawn has room for a tent to accommodate larger weddings, or is a wonderful place for cocktail hour, games, s’mores by the firepit, or other outdoor activities. Paths and trails around the property invite your guests to fully enjoy their day in the mountains.
The Pavilion is perfect for stand-up receptions of 75-100 guests, or 50-75 seated, with room for buffet and dancing. In case of inclement weather, clear, drop-down side walls are available for extra comfort. Other amenities includ a small kitchen for food prep and storage, hot and cold running water, ample electrical outlets, and men’s and women’s restrooms.
The Farm at Green Heron Pond offers many practical advantages for your wedding. We are located in a quiet valley surrounded by mountains, woods and rolling pastures, but we are less than 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. A large parking lot makes it easy for guests and delivery trucks to come and go. Caterers and musicians will appreciate the availability of electricity and water. You can choose your own vendors, or select from our preferred list.
Our brand-new, two bedroom Honeymoon Cottage can be rented for overnight stays, or as a convenient and comfortable place for getting ready. Overnight camping is also available, with some restrictions.
The Farm can be rented by the day or the weekend and makes the perfect home base for all your wedding festivities.
