My husband and I knew we wanted a rustic wedding, and we were on the hunt for a barn or other rustic area around Goshen. After a tour of Red Tail Farm we knew immediately we wanted to get married there.
The location was beautiful—close enough to main streets, but set far enough away to have privacy and beautiful scenery. The grove was perfect for what we envisioned for an outdoor wedding, and the barn, complete with twinkle lights, newly remodelled woodwork, and new furniture added to the ambience and truly made a day to remember. I would highly suggest Red Tail Farm for any couples looking to get married in a local, comfortable, and beautiful space!
