The Koeller Century Farm is a unique, relaxed setting for your rustic wedding or other special event.  The  fourth-generation farmstead has been in the family for over 100 years and is an affordable, private location for you and your guests.

Available June through early October, it is the ideal venue for the do-it-yourself-er who likes to plan and handle the details.  Or, if decorating and planning isn’t your idea of fun, let us take care of everything with the full-service option.

Not just another golf course, hotel or banquet hall – Country Events at the Koeller Century Farm lets you design your day.  We are open to outside vendors, caterers and creative decorators so you can design  the day you’re been dreaming of.

Photographers love the scenic venue for charming photos you’ll treasure for a lifetime. DJs love the acoustics of our machine shed.  Kids love the room to run and play.  Couples love the wedding ceremony under the towering pines.  Groups love the opportunity to mingle in a spacious yard with a county view and beautiful sunsets.
