Sky Ridge Farm will provide clean up for you for an additional fee of $500 if we have staff available that day.

    A: You can view the entire decorating policy found under the "Client" tab. We do not allow candles or other flames at the venue including fireworks and Chinese lanterns. We do make an exception for send-off sparklers, which may be used outside. LED candles are allowed. Nails, glue, staples, command strips and screws are not allowed because they cause damage to the wood in the barn/walls. There are existing nails in the walls that you can use for decoration. Fake flower petals, confetti, glitter or the like are also restricted. Client must provide their own ladders for decoration.
  • Q: Are we allowed to serve alcohol at the venue?
    A: Yes, but please keep in mind that if you plan on serving alcohol of any type you are required to procure an ABC license.

If you choose to book with us, we will walk you through this process or you can go to the following website to to apply for a license: If someone is serving the alcohol, they must be a vendor that is a licensed and insured bartender. Your family and friends are not allowed to serve alcohol. Many caterers will bartend for you for an extra fee.

  • Q: What months of the year do you host weddings?
    A: Sky Ridge Farm is open during the months of April- October. The more temperate months are the most preferred times for weddings at our venue because the main floor of the barn does not have heating or air conditioning. We are closed November through March due to cold weather.
  • Q: What are your policies regarding COVID-19?
    A: Planning for a wedding during a pandemic adds an extra layer of stress. Our hearts go out to you brides! Our policy is that the security deposit is not refundable but is transferable to another date. The client is able to reschedule if needed at no extra cost. Another thing to note is that Sky Ridge only hosts one wedding per week so the building will sit empty for 4 days prior to new occupancy. We're hopeful this will help all of our clients and their guests feel more comfortable attending the wedding/reception. All hard surfaces and high traffic areas will be thoroughly cleaned before each wedding.
  • Q: Will you hold a date for me?
    A: Unfortunately we are unable to hold dates. Our policy is first come, first served. We reserve the date for the first couple who decides to sign a contract for that date and pay the 50% deposit.

    A: Yes, the venue has a caterer's kitchen, where final preparations can be made for serving food. To clarify, this is not a production kitchen where food is cooked.
