Location Spotlight: Milk and Honey Farm
Milk and Honey Farm
By Zohe Felici, Felici Events
Milk and Honey Farm is a quintessential country property that features 2.9 grassy acres, a furnished barn, horse stable, chicken coop, and corral. The property itself is encased by trees, separating the event from any outside distraction and allowing for privacy and intimacy. Located off the Patterson exit in Goleta, the farm is convenient for travel accommodations and tourist attractions alike.
The barn has a two levels that offer separate amenities for both public and private use. The upstairs loft has a furnished living area with beds, couches, a projector, and dressers that are perfect for creating a bridal dressing room. The other side of the loft acts as a stage area for either live bands or DJ’s. The downstairs of the barn boasts high ceilings and acts as a dance floor. There is also a full restroom and optional farm decor provided by the property owner.
The outside area of the property boasts several farm facilities adjacent to a large, grassy space. The lower corral is separated from the barn and chicken coop, and can be used as an outdoor dance floor. In addition to the stable and animal areas, there is an elegant veranda further down the property that has traditionally hosted the alter during the wedding ceremony.
However you chose to use the amenities, Milk and Honey Farm is accommodating and ensures a unique event tailored to your preferences.
This is a Ceremony and Reception venue with overnight accommodations available for additional rental.
