A Country Wedding
We are a laid back family, that enjoys sharing where we are blessed to live and work. So many of our guests have stepped on our property as strangers and left as friends. We are honored to be a part of each wedding and will do our best to help you host the wedding of your dreams.
You can find more details below, but the best way to get a feel for us and our farm is to come out for a meet and greet. The internet just cannot do our place justice.
Please feel free to reach out!

How weddings work at Zedland Farm
Each couple that walks onto our farm is looking to showcase their personalities, their style and of course their unique love story. To aid in this quest we offer different package options so that each may choose what will work best for them. Our aim is to make each option crystal clear to make sure there are no surprises or disappointments. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out.
Standard Venue Rental
Occupancy 200 - No overnight guests
Our standard rental is perfect for the DIYers and those with friends and family that insist upon helping out! We have a daily check in and check out process for everyone's protection, but other than that there is no interference from the owners or staff as long as the contract details are followed. You'll be responsible for setting up, tearing down and cleaning to leave the venue as you found it. Of course if anything unexpected comes up with the property we all live nearby and someone will be on call to pop in and find a solution.
If you are interested in adding staffing our Helping Hands Package will fill in any gaps and do all the heavy lifting! (Details Below)
We believe that with the inclusions of the standard rental it is easy to host a very comfortable, fun and beautiful wedding.

Helping Hands Service Package
It's always nice to have an extra set of hands when working on a project! A large portion of your setup and tear-down time will be spent moving tables, chairs, benches, picnic tables and such. Most of these items will be provided by Zedland Farm (or another rental vendor if upgrades were chosen by the couple). We'll provide the muscle to get the job done.
In addition, our staff will be the hands behind the scenes keeping things tidy, stocked and well taken care of. We are not wedding coordinators or planners, but choosing this package will provide you and your guest with more time to enjoy the weekend!
Staff will not assist with or handle any food. They are also not responsible for any lost/broken items they may be asked to handle.
