"We are family owned and operated and we love what that means. We spend time together as we are working, relaxing and playing. Both my parents and Cale's parents are a huge part of the farm also."
Wedding Venue? Farm? Where did all this come from?
It's really a love story that started with Cale and I, and has grown to include the couples married at the farm. Cale told me on our second date that he wanted a farm with blueberries, goats and chickens - I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
As we were engaged and planning our wedding, we were also talking about what a small family farm might look like. The two quickly merged into the idea that started Pleasant Union Farm.
The property was bought and built with the plan of combining the venue and the farm to share with couples and their families. We have learned a lot about hosting weddings and farming over the past few years. One of the most surprising things I've learned is bittersweet for us. Our team spends a lot of time with the couples and their families as we plan. The wedding day is when all of the planning comes together, the team gets to serve the couples and their guests - but then we have to say goodbye!
Fortunately, the farm offers ways for us to see the couples again through blueberry u-pick, Farm Dinners and visiting us at Canton Farmers Market.

Neither Cale nor I grew up on a farm, but we had connections through our grandparents. Cale's Papa farmed for a living and we have an article in the paper about the 80th garden he planted - 80+ years of farming! I often hear Cale say "I wish Papa was hear to teach me about this" or "I wish Papa could see this". My connection to farming was through the large vegetable gardens my grandparents would plant each summer. Sundays meant family dinners with all the aunts, uncles and cousins filled with fried okra and fresh cut tomatoes from the garden. That sense of family and summer was what I connected most to farming. (And it's what I love most about our Farm to Table Dinners). What farming means to me now is family. It strengthens our relationships and gives us time to connect in so many ways. This sense of family and relationship is what we strive to bring to all of the weddings that we host on the farm. We want you to feel like this is your home for the day and build stronger relationships with your friends and family.
We would love to meet you and show you around our farm. Give us a call for a wedding tour, join us at a Farm to Table Dinner or come visit during blueberry season! - Becky
