Hello, and welcome to the Orchard Grove Farms website. We are very pleased that you decided to visit us, and we look forward to working with you. Throughout this website we hope you can get a sense of what it would be like to have a wedding here at Orchard Grove. We work tirelessly to provide you with an experience that is as relaxing as possible the whole experience through.
The roots of Orchard Grove Farms can be traced back over 200 years, when it got its start as a family-run dairy farm in 1801. The farm was in operation until the 1957, and from the time it closed through the 1980‘s the barn was used to house cattle, horses and eventually became a storage place for all sorts of "stuff"....
Then in 2011, after trying to find a place to get married ourselves, we decided we wanted to get married on the property that is now Orchard Grove Farms. Over the next year we worked on renovating the barn and farmland, and in the summer of 2012 we were married--the very first wedding at Orchard Grove Farms. During and after our wedding, we received so many compliments about how beautiful the property was and also how amazing the experience was for everyone, we decided to look into creating a venue to give other couples the opportunity to experience everything we had. Over the next two years we continued working on the property, including clearing out and remodeling the barn. Our vision was to create a facility and an atmosphere for wedding couples that is relaxing and inviting. Finally, in the spring of 2014, our first wedding was held at Orchard Grove--the genesis of our wedding venue dream business.
Today, Orchard Grove Farms is quickly becoming one of central New York’s most beautiful and unique barn wedding venues. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that our clients and guests will love. We continue to make improvements to the facility to make it even more enjoyable for our guests, and hope to continue helping couples experience their dream wedding at Orchard Grove Farms.
