Farm Venue & Catering

Small Private Events On The Farm

Our beautiful and bountiful urban farm has been hosting private events of all kinds for 15 years. Set on an acre of land in the middle of Northeast Portland’s Cully Neighborhood, Stacey and her incredible team have developed the farm into a stunning backdrop perfect for any intimate occasion. Mature cedar trees become a grand ceremony altar, greenhouses transform into cozy dining spaces, and our woodshed converts into a rustic bar. Our catering partners and local partnerships share in our farm’s seed to plate philosophy, and our team creates a professional and inclusive environment that leaves you feeling like family!

Seed to Plate Catering

As a champion of seed to plate catering and respect for our property and neighborhood, we strive to work with catering partners who have the same vibe and share the same values. All of our preferred caterers offer authentic seed to plate catering for all occasions just like our in house catering company, The Side Yard Kitchen. Our team has worked together with these caterers and know from experience their appreciation for our venue, and as such, are the businesses we prefer being used for all events at the farm. Learn more about each of these partners below!

Our Local Partnerships

No event is complete without the extras that make it memorable–florals, DJ’s, bakers, photographers, wineries, breweries, letterpress, and more. Thankfully, over the years we’ve had the chance to build amazing partnerships with local vendors who can help make your event memorable. See below for a list of our favorite local partnerships!
