There are 2 options.... Leave the work to us.  We offer a selection of wines, beers and spirits and work closely with a local bartending company.  Or if you prefer, you may bring your own alcohol but you must obtain a special occasions license (SOL) and the applicant/holder must have a valid Serving It Right certificate and will have a legal duty of care for event attendees.
 
Should I inform my guests of anything specific?
This is a working farm, and the grounds consist of gravel, grass and pavement so we highly recommend that you inform your female guests, for their safety, that all footwear be flats or wedges.
As well, your venue is surrounded by our crops, so we please ask that everyone be respectful and not pick or harm anything they see growing.
 
Is there anything extra and unique that you offer?
Yes.  Fire pits do come with your venue rental, and you can purchase wood along with hot dog and smores packages from us.  We have many lawn games that you can rent including bocce ball, croquet and horseshoes.  For unique snack options, we have slushie machines, mini donut maker and a popcorn machine.  Or ask about our rehearsal dinner Hopcott Meats BBQ package.  We also have many different farm related and vintage props that you may use in your decoration.
