This farm was purchased six years ago with intent of growing cash crops and possibly using the barn to raise heifers. Several years passed and we had used the barn only once as shelter for a team of horses that were used in a select cutting of our woods. In 2015 a local farming committee asked if we would host a field day, and if we had a shelter available. We agreed to host the event and then constructed a stairway to access the upper level of our barn. This encouraged us to finish renovating the Barn to hold weddings and other events. We had our first wedding reception here in April 2016 and continue to make improvements on the facility and grounds.
In addition to running Eron's Event Barn, LLC, we crop farm and custom harvest alfalfa and corn silage for other farms in the area. We are excited to share our passion for agriculture through our native plant gardens and conservation practices. Our goal is to connect people to agriculture. We are both active Portage County Farm Bureau Members - John the President and Melissa the Promotion and Education Chair. We have two children who keep us on our toes. Melissa also stays busy with her Thirty-One business as a Senior Consultant.
